Joe is semi-retired and Mikki is a nurse. We loved to travel and want to welcome travelers to stay with us on their journeys. The site is directly off Interstate 10 and there is easy access to New Braunfels and San Antonio attractions like tubing on the river, Wurstfest, Fiesta Texas and the Alamo. We love the night sky and often observe and photograph it.
Joe can fix pretty much anything.
We have a medium size, very friendly dog. He loves meeting new friends.
Texas is home.
We currently have a 2012 33' Mountaineer Edition fifth wheel with two slide outs that we pull with a gray 2013 RAM 2500. No funky decorations, but we might consider some in the future.
Joe and Mikki were great guests, they are welcomed back anytime.... They decided to stay another day and added second request, thanks for the extra credits. Al & Becky
Joe & Mikki were easy guests and sounds like great hosts on their own turf. Quite and respectful of our place, we hardly knew they were here. We plan on going by their place this winter either on our way down or on the way back from Florida.
Come back anytime.
Alan & Becky Meinhold
We hosted these two nice people on Sept. 1, 2017. They were very respectful of our property and we spent some nice social time together. They have a wonderful, friendly medium sized dog that was a delight to have in our yard. We look forward to the next time they are in our area so we can spend time with them again.
We stayed on Joe and Mikki’s property for two days while visiting San Antonio. There place is right off the i10 but very private and quiet. The morning we left our suspension on the trailer broke getting on i10, we limped back to see Joe and he welcomed us back. Made room for us even though other guest had arrived and Joe went out of his way to help us out. Thank you again for your help and hospitality.
I was greeted and shown where to park by Mikki when I arrived. She gave me a fact sheet with everything you would need to know for your stay. I found Joe working on his 11" telescope and we had some great conversation about it and every other subject that came up. I really enjoyed looking at the night sky with a beer in hand. Having a setup like this for observing the night sky is on a lot of guys dream list. Thanks for making my stay very enjoyable with great conversation with you both...
It was very nice, they have a big property we a lot of space super friendly host, will stay again whenever and the area. Thanks a lots.
We were greeted by our host who not only had a level and big area to park but also gave us a list of helpful information re: stores in the area. Very close to San Antonio which made visiting the sites there an easy day trip. Will definitely reach out to him again if we are even in the neighborhood.
Joe met us in the easy to pullin driveway and showed us where to unhook Jeep and how to park best to use full hookups! Best BW we have stayed at yet! Our two English Bulldogs absolutely Love runing around this big property! High recommend!
Enjoyed our stay.
Hope to get to stop again if in the area.
And it was a great one to start! We have hosted BW guests for several years but had never been a guest. We picked the right people. They greeted us, helped me get parked and would only accept a pittance for the electricity. I would highly recommend them and if we get the opportunity again, we would sure like to stay with them!
We stayed with this host while visiting the area. They were super accommodating, even had a info sheet with info on where to get propane, groceries, the WiFi password, etc. The host family, and the dog were friendly as well as the others that stay on the property!
Would stay here again!
We have been staying two nights. Very quiet and safe. Near the road but no noise. Host very friendly.
We were very happy.
We were greeted by J and he assisted me in backing into the spot, in which I suck at! Lol! We had full hook ups and a very peaceful stay. I would definitely recommend and stay again.
Hosts were very friendly and welcoming. They even gave us a sheet of paper with instructions and very helpful information (wifi password, local stores and places to check out, etc) So very organized.
Great and quiet location, easy access to highway yet far enough from the noise.
They offered to show us his telescope and watch the stars and educate us on astronomy! Unfortunately, we weren't able to stay long enough for it.
Thank you kindly for your hospitality!
We had such a great time with the host and they have a great property. We felt like family and wish we could had stayed a couple more days. Our kids loved learning about the planets and stars from the host. Great location, amazing host and such a wonderful time. Hope they come and visit us sometime.
We unfortunately arrived at host's after dark, but they helped get us backed in and settled like pros!.....very friendly!!
This was our first Boondocker's Welcome stay and Joe and Mikki made it so easy and welcoming. Their directions brought us right to their place which is easily accessed from I-10. We were greeted, shown where to park and given a printout of helpful information about the area. Tbere's so much to do in nearby New Braunfels and Graene - awesome shopping and great restaurants that we never even made it into San Antonio! We'll visit there in a few weeks.
Thank you for a safe peaceful stay!
Warm welcome after a long day travel. Level, power ,quiet, water, dump- can't ask for more!
First, I would like to apologise for the delayed review. We had family stuff come up and I haven't been online.
This stay was amazing. Perfect 👌 we really appreciate the hospitality!
The hosts made me feel welcomed from the moment I arrived. They prepared a cheat sheet of all the essential local places (grocery, laundry, library and Walmart). Sure, I could have searched the Internet but I really appreciated them putting this together. As I was there on Thursday and Friday nights I didn’t expect to see them but they took the time to come out and chat Saturday morning before left. Really nice people. There is more. They offer FH just like a RV park and like everything these days, it costs them to offer these amenities and you should keep that in mind if you choose to stay with here. This was my first time using BW and they exceeded my expectations by far!
Astrocat48 was gracious enough to allow us to stay on our return trip from west Texas. Once again it was a fantastic place to stay and the host are wonderful. This is a great place to stay around the San Antonio area.
Greeted warmly by our Hosts and their doggie. After settling in, sat a while visiting and enjoyed the evening. Would absolutely recommend stopping here!
This is my second time staying at this location and it is always a great time! They are such Nice, hospitable people, and I always feel extremely safe and I always feel extremely safe welcomed. I even got to spend sometime with my kitten buddy from the first time, who is now a cat!
This was our first time as Boondockers Welcome guest and it couldn’t have been better. Thank you Astrocat48 for allowing us to stay on your beautiful property. Fantastic host.
Enjoyed my stay and would certainly stop back when next in the area.
Great location near all the Hill Country has to offer! Our hosts were not in the area during our stay, but they were generous enough to allow us to come by anyway. It was especially nice to have full hook ups. We hope to be able to meet our hosts next time we are in town.
Found myself back in the area and once again enjoyed my visit. J is very helpful and friendly.
Oblio greeted us when we arrived. Easy spot to get to and for us it was perfectly level. 30amp power was fantastic on such a hot day! Filled our water tank too. There is a sewage hookup but we didn’t need it. Utilities are all on the right side if you back in, keep in mind if you have short hoses or cords, we had no issues though.
I want to think this great couple for hosting my cousin and i on there property. It was an amazing stay and an even better visit with them. They are very nice people and would recommend anyone using boondockers welcome to stay with them! This was my first stay and I would love to come back again next time I'm in the area. Thank you so so much again
They allowed us to extend a night at their farm. We were able to watch fireworks from their driveway!
Our stay at this location was perfect. They are conveniently located off a major interstate, and 30 minutes to every attraction. It’s quiet, accommodating and beautiful. Our hosts were generous, and welcoming from the moment we arrived.
This was our first BW, and what a great experience! Hosts were super welcoming. The site was perfect with a beautiful view and an amazing breeze later in the day. They offered water and electric which was a Godsend as it was HOT!! They also had a dump station that was super convenient to use before we left.
The best part of our stay was getting to spend some time with Joe and Mikki on the patio. Wonderful couple!
Thank you so much for making this such a great experience...future hosts have big shoes to fill;)
A & B- Out of Sight Adventures
This sweet little property is perfect for anyone wanting to explore San Antonio or Seguin, I did! This was my first time and I was nervous but they made everything so smooth for me! Both of my hosts are so sweet. I had been missing my own pets at home, so They let me play with their sweet little kitten in my trailer!! That evening he helped me with some issues with water. Very genuine, generous, good hearted people. The property is pleasant and safe, I spent some time picking wild flowers around there as well! and they both are very balanced and will not intrude but are very friendly and helpful! If you are looking for some genuine friendships on your journey this is a good spot. They have hookup which was really convenient too, i stayed for 2 days and loved it. I would definitely go back again!
Really enjoyed stayed with this host. Great folks!
Site is easy to get in and out. Follow their instructions on how to get there and you won't have a problem finding them. It is off (I10) but very quiet.
Joe was a great host, very accommodating and helpful!! Highly recommend him!
This was my second stay with Joe and Mikki. Joe responded to my last minute request and met me when I pulled in. These folks are terrific (sorry I missed you this time, Mikki) and I highly recommend them if you need a stop near San Antonio.
This was our first experience staying at a host location. Joe is a great host. He made us feel very comfortable. He and Oblio met us at the end of the driveway and escorted us back to our spot. Mikki was working so we didn't have the chance to meet her, we will definitely be going back, so maybe next time.
Joe and Mikki have a beautiful piece of property. They offer water, electric and sewer.
The scenery is amazing. Thank you Joe for your hospitality and for a great 1st experience.
The host gave us perfect directions and a choice of parking places. We chose the parking next to another guest where 30 amp was available.
We had some time to tour around Seguin to see downtown, the park and shopping. We did not tube the river. Looks fun.
We enjoyed sitting in our chairs to watch the afternoon landscape. Quite a few birds and no bothersome insects.
After a good nights sleep we thanked our host and had an easy departure. Very convenient to I-10 but no bothersome road noise.
Thanks so much.
Good conversation about many topics with great hosts. Will try to go back next year.
This was such a wonderful spot. Our hosts were so friendly and welcoming and the location was beautiful. Grazing cows on the property next door, green grass and flowers everywhere (in the Spring), and close enough for a day-trip to Gruene, New Braunfels, or San Antonio, but still far enough away to feel like you're out in the country. Our dogs enjoyed running around and playing with our host's dog every day! There's a cell tower right next to the property, so depending on which service provider owns the tower from year to year, you likely won't have an issue with connection.
We enjoyed chatting with our hosts and only regret not spending more time with them! We would most definitely stay here again. :)
Mikki and Joe are amazing hosts. We are so glad that we got to know them a bit better this second time around!
We arrived at our host place very tired, but for a first time boondocking, it s a great experience. I m glag that people open their homes to strangers.
To wake up with the birds and the sunrise in nature, surely beats walmart!
Thank you dearly for your hospitality!
This was a great stay. Mikki and Joe are exceptional hosts. They helped with all the local places to go. Mikki even allowed me to try pottery for the first time. I would recommend anyone to stay here. Great location and friendly.
WeHad a great time there we had a big bonfire in the evening they’re very nice it was quiet and peaceful I would go there again and I want to thank them for the one night stay.
We had a great night for our first stay with BW! Joe came out and guided us in to our spot and we chatted for a while. Nice to talk with a fellow firefighter about our past adventures. Unfortunately did not meet Mikki on this stay but Oblio (dog) came and visited with us a few times. Enjoyed a beautiful sunset as well. Would definitely stay again. Thank you Joe & Mikki
My husband and I stayed at Joe and Mikki's property for 4 nights while passing through Texas on our way out West. This was our second Boondocker's Welcome experience and it was amazing!! We had a wonderful spot overlooking a farm with cows. There is a 30 amp electric and water hookup as well as sewer. The host's are extremely gracious and we chatted with them many times about their travels and ours as well. We would HIGHLY recommend checking them out if you are in the area. It is a perfect location for visiting San Antonio and New Braunfels. Don't miss the Power Plant Grill in Seguin for a fantastic lunch or dinner right on the river over the dam. So much to see in the area.
They were both so inviting and welcoming to our family. The local area was fun to explore. We loved the splash pad and brand new library. Please make sure to treat this host with respect and pay for the electricity and water you use.
We really like our stay with Astrocat. We were invited around a fireplace and had great talk with them and their friends. It was a quiet country place about 40 min. From San antonio.
We loved our stay. Hosts, Joe and Micki are very welcoming. We pulled straight in to the site and had a wonderful view of the cow farm and pond out our front window. Having full hook ups is always a treat and an unexpected bonus at this site. We are very heavy and our front jacks sunk quite far after a night. Joe provided what we needed to beef up the “foundation” and we were fine the rest of our stay. It’s very quiet and far enough off the road so that the highway noise is pretty muffled. There’s great proximity to San Antonio, and don’t miss going into New Braunfels, Greun, and Seguin for some local tastes and sights.
We felt very welcome and enjoyed our stay. From the moment we pulled in and met our hosts and their lovable pup we felt right at home. The two permanent RV residents on site were also very friendly.
Site is very easy off IH10 but set back from the service road so there is not much noise. Spot was easy to pull into with our 33’ RV and gave us a nice view of the countryside and a cow pasture out our front window.
I have to admit I was a bit concerned that the site was right by I-10, but it was far enough away that noise was absolutely not an issue. We got a hearty welcome by Dale, the full-timer who stays on the property. Perfect spot for us as we traveled from South Texas to Fort Worth.
What a wonderful couple these two are! They are kind and generous with their time and talents. We would highly recommend a stay here. The bonus to staying with them was our trip into San Antonio. Great town, great time.
Mikki and Joe are special folks. I didn't get to sit down over the campfire, maybe next time. I've been dry camping for the last 4 months so it was a delightful bonus when I had access to the (separate building) with a shower! Thank you!
astrocat was a great host located right outside of San Antonio Texas. He offered to help with a leak in the toilet. He offered full hookups and allowed us to dump. This was a great spot and he was a great host. Highly recommended :-)
We discovered the "Aristocat's love to host and enjoy the "Boondocking Experience" as much as the Boondockers themselves. If you love campfires, and catch the weather being cooperative, you can probably talk this host into getting a good sized fire going. But beware.....after a beer or couple glasses of wine the conversation could go on and on, and be enjoyed for hours.
Definitely one of our all time great stops.
Thanks for your authentic generosity, being part of our Boondocking community, and for being 5 star hosts....
David & Judy Hale
Joe and Miki are very nice. Tight for our 38 footer but it worked out for us.
This was an awesome stay- the location was close enough to San Antonio for trips into the city. The site has hook ups (!!!) and a beautiful view out the back window. You park near another RV, but the resident is very friendly and quiet. You're also near the highway but I didn't notice much noise from it. The Hosts are super nice people- we ended up enjoying some time together, which is always a plus! I would definitely recommend this stay to anyone passing through the area.
The location was very convenient to the highway & San Antonio. The hosts were both very kind and accommodating.
I thanks them kindly for their hospitality :)
Astro cat were such gracious hosts and hosted me twice as I ran into car trouble! Highly recommend!
Had some car trouble nearby and Astrocat gave a prompt reply with good directions for arrival.
Very friendly and hospitable hosts! Was made comfortable, guidance for parking and hook ups. Had a handy print out with wi-fi info and local spots to visit. Good experience and an offer to extend my stay if the repairs fell through as well. Interesting person with a lot of know how in building and various other aspects. Really enjoyed the stay!
Joe & Mikki are very greacious and helpful, we have stayed longer then anticipated and these folks have been so nice, recommended auto service, local sights, and very accomodating. Great sight just off I-10 close to San Antonio, Tx. Yet far enough away for these Country Bumpkins to rest peacefully. All the amenities is a great plus, along with dump station if needed. Hope to see “ya all” back in Colorado sometime. Al & Becky Meinhold
Nice people and everything you need for a comfortable stay. Astrocat48 provided so much more than we expected...a level pad, water, 30 amp and wifi as well as directions for propane and groceries. We are so glad we found Boondockers Welcome!
Jos and Mikki are very charming people. The place is very quiet. We really enjoyed staying there. It is also very easy to access and we had full hook-up service including the WIFI.
Great place to stay.
There is well known that Texas people are very welcoming, we can confirm that is totally true with these host! We been there only one night but we had a really good time by chatting with them and sharing about plenty of different topics. The location is also perfect for sleeping after spending a day in San Antonio. We highly recommend these hosts!
This was our first time using boondockerswelcome and was a great experience. The hosts were very welcoming and generous. It’s a great location near to the freeway, but not noisy. Easy access to San Antonio.
We thoroughly enjoyed staying and would recommend in an instant!
It's in a great location and the hospitality shown by the hosts was fantastic, they made us feel very welcome!
This was our first BW experience and we were so fortunate to have that experience with Astrocat48. Although the hosts were going out of town and we didn't get to visit with them much, they were very nice and very gracious toward us. Dale helped us out whenever we needed anything, during our visit, and he was great as well.
This location was very peaceful and has a great rural atmosphere. It was easy to get our 35 ft Motorhome into the property and it wasn't even to hard for this newbie to get it turned around when it was time to leave. I can't recommend it enough! THANKS Astrocat48!!! We hope to visit with them again!
A quiet location. Having electrical hook-up was wonderful as the temperature was over 100 degrees.
Perfect set up for our 30 foot bus! We had great conversation and astrocat48 and their dog were very welcoming. We spent a day going to San Antonio and Austin from here. Great location!
One of the reasons we travel is to see beautiful places. The added bonus is getting to know kind and welcoming people like Mr and Mrs Astrocat48. We had a wonderful time at their quiet property and hope to cross paths in our travels again. Thank you for the great conversations and sharing your passion of the starry skies.
Though our stay was a short one, it was a peaceful one. Our guest went out of their way to accommodate us and we thank them for that.
We enjoyed sharing stories and tips with the host and neihhbors.
Our hosts were very friendly and helpful. We were close to restaurants but far enough away for a good night sleep. We visited for a concert nearby. We plan to come back soon.
This was a beautiful place to have a quiet couple of days to relax after some long drives. Thank you for letting us stay! Oblio was a pleasure and our dogs loved your land!
We stayed for two nights with Joe and Mikki at end of April.
Although normally they have only one spot, and althogh the spot was reserved by othe guest - they invited us to stay and arranged for utility.
Very nice chat over a drink.
Recieved an important tip where to park our RV for free and take the bus into downtown.
Joe has exceedef my expectations, by offering his technical skills to fix a loose pipe in my RV.
They most welcome to visit us in our homeland.
We met wonderful people and had a geat time with them ! They were very welcoming and and made sure we experience the Texan hospitalityat its best. The place is very peaceful and the wifi was great. We warmly recommend Astrocat48 to anyone in this area. Thanks again for everything Astrocat48 !
Thanks a lot for allowing us to boondock at your place which was very convenient for our San Antiono visit. Being new to the area, information about the Randolph Blvd Via bus interchange made the trip into downtown a breeze.....only about 40 min. Even though Joe and his wife were away on business, both Dale and Mike made us feel very welcome. There is plenty of room and a nice quiet, rural outlook even though being very handy to the I10. We would recommend without hesitation, boon docking at this location.
Sorry we didn’t meet up with hosts Joe and Mikki but I have been assured they are lovely people, so maybe sometime in the future.
Astrocat48 gave us some good suggestions on local restaurants. The Mexican food was great!Their location is easy to find just off of the interstate. Only stayed one night but enjoyed the short visit!
Thanks, a bunch
Had a great stay with Astrocat48. Their location was easy to find and conveniently located near a major highway but not so close that traffic noise would interfere with sleeping. We were provided electricity and water. They do have a dump site as well but we did not use it. Our stay was very quiet and peaceful and we would return if in the area again.
We loved our stay with Astrocat48. They were very generous with letting us stay even though they were away themselves for the first while. Thoroughly enjoyed their hospitality, conversation, super friends and yummy food. Great people! Thanks for having us!
Joe and Mikki were very kind and informative. Gave good info on San Antonio and other places to go in Texas. Hope to see them again one of these days. Highly recommend them as hosts!
Joe and Mikki were terrific hosts, giving me lots of information about San Antonio and other places to camp in Texas. Joe was very quick to respond to any text messages as I was trying to find their location. Highly recommend a stay with these folks.
The spot is an easy ride in to setup. The hosts were very helpful and we spent an evening talking, getting tips on things to do in San Antonio as well as further west in Texas. The hosts are also very pet friendly as our dog had got to run around the hills of Texas as well as play with the host dog.
Great hosts and great spot - easy access, flat, even have a spot to plug in, water, and a dump to use. We ended up only staying one night, as we had an early appointment in San Antonio (about 45 minutes) and found a closer spot. Our dog had so much fun playing with their dog, Oblio! Thank you so much for your generous hospitality. Sorry we didn't get to visit more.
Marie & Kent
Jeff & Mikki, Thankx for the use of your location. It was very comforting for us to know that our RV was in a safe location while we were visiting the San Antonio Riverwalk area for a few days. Thankx for allowing us to stay an extra day while a cold front was moving in with high winds, etc. If ever in SD, look us up! The location is certainly large enough to pull in and move around. Boondock if you wish or have the opportunity to use 30amp, water & dump. Thankx Again.
This Boondockers Welcome experience makes us 6 for 6. Our first five hosts were fabulous, fun folks-and Astrocat48 was such a very welcome encounter. Thank you for a new friendship; and we hope to host y'all sometime in the future!
Very quick response...we had to decline after other plans were made..
Our hosts were very friendly and welcoming. Very helpful and generous regarding our needs. We have had a nice chat with those very interesting people. Wish we have had more time in this area. We highly recommend this host.
Had a nice time visiting with them. Easy going couple to talk with about different things
Had a great time!, exellent hosts and great location! I highly recommend!
