We both work regular jobs in addition to raising around 100 animals from chickens and ducks to dogs and goats. We have a 10,000 square foot garden and have never tainted it with unnatural fertilizer or insecticide (we've still got a lot to learn). We stay busy with all the responsibly but RV trips have become an addiction since our first trip in 2012. The sights we've seen on these trips are great but the people we meet are what make the trip.

We have a farm full of pets, but they stay behind when we travel.
The best boondocking we've done has been at Airventure in Oshkosh Wisconsin, and High Island beach in Texas. Two of our passions, airplanes and oceans/beaches.
Azle, Texas (Northwest of Fort Worth)
We started in a tent, then upgraded to a 14' popup, then a 23' hybrid TT, then a 23' class C. At this point we still have them all but usually only use the class C.
This member and their family were quiet, respectful, and very gracious. They even brought us farm fresh eggs! We only wish we hadn't had so much rain that we had to get creative to find them a decent spot to park not in a mud puddle! We'd have them back any time.
Sam and Sarah were welcoming and gave us a tour of the farm. We felt right at home and had a lovely stay!
We loved out visit with Sarah and Sam. We found just the respite we needed on their sweet quiet property complete with chickens, ducks, goats and a couple of nice dogs. Their dedication to growing healthy clean veggies was right up our alley and we enjoyed the personal tour and info about the area. They even gave us a dozen freshly gathered eggs! These two are very interesting and just nice people. Even though it is very close to Ft. Worth we felt like we were way out in the country for a well needed relaxing evening. How nice to be awakened by the rooster before we got on our way!
Sam and Sarah were fantastic hosts. They ensured that a spot was ready for our rig, but our favorite part was being treated with such hospitality. The fresh eggs are delicious! They have an active farm and it was a joy to hear about it. We even got to meet their family!
Thank you Sam and Sarah!
Sam and Sarah were excellent hosts!! They were quick to respond when we requested to spend the night at their Boondockers location. They were also very flexible and fantastic when our plans changed a bit. Upon arrival, they greeter us and helped us get parked. Then, they gave us a lovely tour of their organic farm and animals. We had a delightful time! They even gave us a dozen farm-fresh eggs! How generous is that?!
We had a wonderful night of rest before we continued our travels the following day. They both came to say goodbye and wish us well. Definitely contact them to stay if you're passing through the area. It's an excellent experience :)
Sam & Sarah's home and property is quiet, spacious and easy to access. Quick response to my inquiry. Helped me to my spot and friendly greetings to their home. I would definitely stop by again if I am in the area. Thank you for being part of my adventure. First time using Boondockers Welcome. 👍
