Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I'm a retired single engineer who enjoys working on my whole house renovation, off-roading with my Jeep, motorcycle riding and of course RVing. I tinker on many things doing most of my own vehicle maintenance, including my RV.

Skills & Expertise to Share

As my Dad used to say, Jack of all Trades, Master of none. Or as a childhood friend of mine describes our (his and my) abilities, we've got Homesteader Licenses - we can fix (almost) anything. What we can't fix we probably don't have any need for anyway.

Very Gracious Host

Bob is great in allowing guests in his large back yard that provides access to the Dallas area. We overestimated our backing up skills in making the tight turn into his long driveway and he was very helpful and patient with us. It was great having 30 amp and being able to fill our water tank. Thank you again Bob!!

Truly Great Stay!

Bob was extremely kind and welcoming. Very calm demeanor, helpful and accommodating as could be. The neighborhood is quiet and safe and not too far from Dallas.

Highly recommend, and would love to stay again if/when back in the area!

Thank you!

Excellent Host! 5 Stars

As a solo female traveler I felt safe and comfortable. Bob was friendly and was there to help me with whatever I needed when I arrived. The spot is clean, beautiful and peaceful. Very very nice area and the roads to get there are excellent. I used his 30amp plug in with no problems. Great area for overnight or a couple days. He always welcomed my two furbabies Marley and Dexter. I would stay again absolutely! Location was great Supermarket and Whole Foods right down the street along with lots of Restaurants and shopping! Not to far from Dallas area! Thank you Bob for a great experience with!

Wonderful Stay

Our host was incredibly gracious and allowed us both power and wifi. They were also so friendly and we were able to get to know more about them as we visited upon arrival. The area is quiet and relaxed, and we would absolutely recommend others to stay here.

Excellent host

Bob met us as we pulled in and let us know where to park. He is such a friendly guy. We had to leave to go pick up an Amazon package pretty soon afterward so we could not talk for too long. We did find out that we have a lot in common, such as the places we have lived and both of our penchants for improving things. Lol
Bob's place is so nice. There has been major construction so lots of mud but still, a lovely place to be. Lots of trees around. We would love to come back when it is a little warmer and more birds are out in the morning. All in all a really nice experience. I would also add that backing up experience is a plus for Bob's place. Thanks, Bob for a wonderful place to stay.

Helpful, knowledgeable and safe

This spot is located in a beautiful neighborhood with lots of trees on big lots. The only challenge was backing down his long driveway, but I did so slowly and it all worked out. I plugged into 30 amp and Bob offered a hose ext so I could access water. He reminded me of the amenities close to his neighborhood and offered to fire up the wi-fi. I felt very safe and cozy. I will definitely contact him for a future stay. Thank you ever so kindly Bob!

Such a gentleman

We had the chance to enjoy a peaceful night at Bob's place, even if it was rainy outside. He's such a nice guy and it was a pleasure to talk with him about our RV's adventures.
We wanted to stay much longer.
Hope to see you soon Bob!

Quiet and pleasant

I enjoyed staying at Bob’s for two nights. I humbly realize my backing up skills need to be honed, but Bob was very helpful. Very quiet and pleasant neighborhood and I would recommend staying at Bob’s.

A lovely stay over...

Thank you to our host. He was very hospitable! We recommend this stop for all Boondockers! Thank you again for a beautiful, safe place to stay!

Great location, and wonderful host

Unfortunately we are leaving this review a few weeks late, but we greatly enjoyed our stay with host BobinMurphy! He is a wonderful host, and we enjoyed hearing about his travels, and getting to visit for a while. He was generous to allow us to hook up to utilities, and we enjoyed visiting Dallas and this was a great location to do that. We hope our paths cross again!

Great host and location!

Our host was very patient and accommodating to us. He went above and beyond to help us. We had a little trouble getting in due to rain and he helped us get in and cleaned up behind us. His patience and grace was amazing. This was our first time and we could not have asked for a better host. His location was great for the RV and great in relation to Dallas. He also has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to rving.
Thanks for everything!

Quiet safe neighborhood

Great welcoming host. He helped us back down the drive way. The neighborhood was central to where we needed to be and quiet. I felt very safe staying here

Bob is so helpful!

While I attended a conference in Dallas on Friday, Bob helped my wife clean our motorhome tires to prep them for RenewProtect tire treatment. Then on Saturday, Bob gave me some more good tips as I treated my tires with RenewProtect (a great product btw). Thanks again Bob for such a pleasant, productive stay!


October 2018

Nice Stop!

We were in need of wi-fi because ours crashed and BobinMurphy has a strong secure signal for his guest. It was a good stop the host is very knowledgeable of the area and answered all my computer server questions. I didn't get to quiz him as much as I wanted just plain run out of time. Get ready BobinMurphy we will see ya again someday!

Great Boondock

We really enjoyed our couple of days here. Bob is a great guy, really friendly and knowledgable. His help and assistance with some jobs on our rig was invaluable.


September 2018

Very welcoming

He is an absolute genius! No joke! He is also very welcoming and so considerate. He knew the Darts (local train 🚊) that we should take everywhere and also the best places to eat. He lived on a culdesac Street which was perfect for my children and I to walk and bike on. He also knows everything about rv-ing! Such a wonderful person. We are so happy to have met him!


June 2018

Bob is an amazing host!

Bob hosted me and my pup for 3 nights and was so accommodating. He offered water and electric, and I was parked on a nice dry and level surface that was fenced in. The neighborhood is beautiful and upscale. It is a slightly narrow drive like he mentions in his post, so you have to be able to back up well. Bob is so well travelled and has a lot of stories and knowledge. I look forward to looking at his personal webpage and many pictures of the places he's been. I cannot recommend Bob enough!!


October 2017

Responded quickly

Gave us useful info for where else we might boondock. Helpful even though we did not stay there.
