Meandering along the backroads of this beautiful country!

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We have a 2015 Leisure Travel Vans Unity Motorhome (25'). We are vacation travelers and get away when we can, generally taking secondary roads and taking time to enjoy the sites and scenery along the way.

Aside from enjoying the scenery of this amazingly beautiful continent, we enjoy visiting National Parks, campside cooking, photography and hiking. We both love to travel and when not taking RV trips...we try to get out of the Continental US every couple of years. We recently acquired Specialized Como e-bikes and an inflatable kayak for taking on the road. When not RVing, we enjoy golf, the Dallas Cowboys (season ticket holder), hosting "Aunt Camp" for our many great nieces and nephews each summer, koi, fly fishing (not in our koi pond!), photography, Netflix marathons, art collecting (mostly modern), cooking, Monarch butterfly tagging (when they migrate through Dallas headed to Mexico in the fall) and entertaining friends. I never met a gadget I didn't like and love to read. I'm currently reading books about each U.S. President (in order of service). As you can tell from my lengthy explanations...I have been known to talk too much. 😄 Shannon is more quiet...she is creative, is obsessed with cows, loves architecture, appreciates the beauty in all landscapes and loves knowing what is unique or special about the places we visit. I enjoy listening to her commentary as we drive. Needless to say, we have a wide variety of interests!

Skills & Expertise to Share

I'm not handy, so don't expect me to help with mechanical issues. I sure can help figure out who and where to get things repaired though! If you are interested in good restaurants, shopping, attractians, hiking, jogging, dog parks, etc., we can help you out. I've lived in Dallas 35 years and was born in Houston. I can also give advice on best routes to get around DFW.

Meander's Pets

We have 2 Australian Labradoodles - Willie 45# and Penny 20#. We also have a tuxedo kitty - Pancho. The dogs sometimes travel with us. Pancho has no interest in travel!

A quiet night

We only saw our hosts briefly when we arrived but the site was very nice and very quiet. We had one more night when we arrived and her vehicles were parked at the site, they later that we were. It all work out and we were able to see our friends for dinner and be on our way the next morning. Lovely to have a chance to stay in town.

Beautiful neighborhood right outside city center

Mary is a sweetheart. She was really busy on our stay but took a time out to come come chat and give us the low down of the area. Suggested all kinds of places. Neighborhood is pet friendly, saw dozens of dogs walking. They are near a dog park too. Wish we could of stayed longer and hangout with these ladies. Wolfpack give meander 2 🐺🐾 and hope to see them on the road sometime.

Dallas hosts rock!

What an incredible stay! Beautiful neighborhood! The hosts have water, electricity and dump available. All communication was superb through messages and texts. Helped us nagivate Dallas. Such nice people! Unfortunately we did not meet the hosts; however we hope to be back abs meet them! Thank you!!!

Perfectly Planned for Us!

We requested our stay just the night before and really didn’t know when we would arrive. The details given in the email spelled out everything we needed to know. We texted when we were close to arrive and even though they weren’t there, stopped by for a quick hello, asked if we needed anything and let us know about a dog park, so that was a bonus! The neighborhood was charming, peaceful and quiet! We highly recommend!

Short stay

Unfortunately due to car problems we were only able to spent one night at meanders. But we were very grateful to stay in a quiet and safe neighborhood. We met some wonderful and helpful people in Dallas. Thank you Meander

Certainly more wonderful than Wal-Mart parking lots

We loved having electricity and water available!! Gorgeous and quiet neighborhood. Sweet stay. Thank you!

Safe and sound

Meander offers a nice quiet and safe location to boondock. Shore power and water are a plus with the option to dump around the corner (I only used power). Due to schedule differences, we were not able to meet our host in person. Still, instructions were detailed and she corresponded regularly via message. No issues whatsoever. Would definitely recommend and hope for a second opportunity to stay on the way back.

Amazing stay in the Dallas Area

Enjoyed our stay with Meander! She was very sweet and super informative. It was wonderful having full hookups and a place to empty tanks. Location was convenient to everything we wanted to do during our stay. Thank you!!

A lovely stay in Dallas

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay! The neighborhood is so lovely and quiet, and I chose to stay for easy access to the Dallas-Love airport for my travel-mate. It was easy to get ride share (Uber or Lyft) to head downtown for activities. I'm so grateful that my host shared some fabulous advice for RVing and trip planning, which was super helpful as a newbie! What a wonderful experience and my very first time trying Boondocker's Welcome. I would love to stay here again!

Great host with a very nice spot for our 24’ Class C. We were able to reach the 30 amp by pulling all the way up to the flower bed, as instructed. In the morning, we pulled back to reach the faucet to fill out clean water.

Beautiful sculpture on the front lawn and very quiet street made this an ideal stay. Thank you!

Great Site

This was a perfect site for us while we attended our daughters graduation. Nice quiet neighborhood and fabulous site.


March 2018

Lovely spot for a night!

Mary provides a nice, level spot in front of her home to stay. Providing electric, water and WiFi was a nice bonus, we were happy campers staying here! Beautiful, quiet neighborhood close to the city and easy to get to. Very much enjoyed chatting with Mary and meeting her cute new puppy. Thanks again for a great stay!

Nice location!

Very helpful and friiendly hosts, and such a convenient neighborhood. We are in the Dallas area often and we're excited to find this gem.

Just be aware the streets are narrow, so if you come upon a spot with cars parked both sides as we did, you may have to knock on a door and ask for more space to pull thru. I don't think this will happen often though.

We're looking forward to next time!

Perfect, Perfect, Perfect

We had to come to Dallas for business and Meander has wonderful place to stay in a safe and quiet neighborhood.
We just stayed one night, but would love to come back, maybe stay a couple of nights and check out all the wonderful things to do in Dallas!

Thanks a bunch Meander you gave us just what we needed right when we needed it!

What a great host and nice place!

We had a great experience staying at Meander's place in Dallas. They were great host and so close to everything yet it was very quiet at night. Thank you again so much!

Short... but VERY Sweet!

Thanks so much for your generous hospitality.
Sorry we were not able to spend more time 'hang'n' out and getting to know y'all.
Love your "diggs" and all the awesome ART stuff!
In spite of the Canadians trying to freeze us all out... we did survive and thrived! Eh! ;-P

I personally loved making friends with the "kids" ... and consider Pancho a most excellent dude!!!!

BTW: I'll be trying to set up our homestead as a Welcome mat for travelers and if you are in the area, I will expect you to stop by for a nite or 2! What better way to see the "Big Peach" without dealing with the 'Big City' hype!
MARTA is close ... and there is lots of UBER & Lift drivers to get you safely from here to there and back again.

Rating you a 12 out of 10... in spite of the weather!!!

Two Very Hospitable Texans!

We really enjoyed the Texan hospitality exhibited by [Meander]. We were provided with a very level space off the street on a very quiet side street. Invited in for coffee and conversation, and found we had common interests in art and appreciating the challenges of creating art. We would return again because they were such fine folk.

Friendly host and great and quiet site !

Our hosts were very friendly and welcoming. Very helpful and generous regarding our needs. We have had a nice chat with Mary. We also met their two lovely dogs. Wish we have had more time with them at their location. We highly recommend this host.
