Do you know or have you hosted this user?

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.

Sorry for the delay,

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.

Great guests

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.

Wonderful people and great place to stay

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.

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.

Great hosts!

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

Joe and Mikki were great!

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;)

The best stay and people I could have imagined for my first time!

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!

Great Hosts - convenient to San Antonio

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.

Great 1st Boondockers Welcome experience

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.

One night in Seguin

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.

All Around Excellent!

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. :)

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!

Fantastic Boondocker

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.

Wonderful sunset in Seguin

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

Fantastic Location

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.

Farm Life

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.

Great People and Location

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.

March 2019

Easy stop

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.

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 :-)

Way too much fun......

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....

Fantastic hosts, nice site!

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.

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.

Peaceful, Helpful, Wonderful

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!

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.

San Antiono Stop Over

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.

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.

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.

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.
