We’re mostly quiet and self-sufficient, though we do like to get to know people when we have the chance. Sam works a mostly remote job in addition to working our small homestead with Sarah, who is now full time. We have a large natural garden, goats, chickens and a couple of farm dogs that stay behind when we travel. We stay busy with all the responsibly but RV trips have become an addiction the past few years. The sights we've seen on these trips are great but the people we meet are what make the trip, and that's a big part of why we host. Being new empty nesters, we're always looking for new adventures & ideas. Sam is a cautious adrenaline junky, and Sarah is becoming more open minded about living on the edge.
We recently started a Facebook page for our travels at https://www.facebook.com/friendsinrvspaces
We are both experienced at Farming & Gardening (naturally without harmful chemicals)
Sam is a Private Pilot & owner of a Cessna 172, but manages a Corporate information technology company for a living.
Sarah is a great cook and skilled at canning what we grow
Two farm dogs, but they stay behind when we travel.
Airventure in Oshkosh Wisconsin, TRF near Houston, and random off-grid boondocking spots miles from roads.
Azle, Texas (Northwest of Fort Worth)
2013 Forest River/Prime Time Crusader 355BHQ, 4 slides, about 13' tall with two A/C's, and 40' long. Self contained with 200Ah of lithium batteries and generator power to run the necessities. Pulled by a 2011 Ford F-350 crew cab, long bed, diesel, 4WD.
Sam and Sarah are very nice folks, friendly, and unassuming. Very thoughtful and responsible. Because he works on line and we are busier than retired people should be we only got about an hour of ‘chatting’ in but that was very nice. They left us with a tasty treat to remember their kindness by and they are more than welcome anytime at ‘Our Place’. We hope to be their guests someday at ‘Friends in RV Places’. Until then, we wish them happy trails, clear skies, and tailwinds.
We LOVED having Sam & Sarah here for a visit. The only problem was the stay was not long enough. We shared all kinds of stories. I took Sarah to the Cheese factory so she could taste cheese curds for the first time. We swam in the lake and all had dinner together. They are very responsible, respectful guests. You will never have any guests this wonderful! We cant wait to have them back. We already have plans for them to make us a regular pit stop for EAA.. Plus we invited them to come enjoy the snow this winter..
For those traveling> They are also hosts in Texas. They have a small farm and animals.. If your traveling to Texas they would be a MUST STOP AND VISIT...
Thank you guys it was our pleasure to have you here. Im sure we will be lifelong friends..
We enjoyed meeting and sharing stories SamAndSarah. Sam even helped us with moving our lawn mower shed - which more than paid for any utility usage! My disappointment was that their rig was not tall enough to take out my radio dipole antenna. Would have given me more push to replace it soonest. I will be interested to hear stories from AirVenture and maybe host a glider ride. And we may just drop into their host site for one of our beginning trips.
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.
What a great first experience as guests! We've been hosts for several years but finally tried being guests. SamAndSarah could not have been more accommodating and their location worked great for our needs. They greeted us upon arrival and helped us get settled. They also presented us with a dozen eggs and an information sheet about themselves and the area. The location is rural which is what we were looking for. We hope to visit here again and hope they will come to South Dakota and be our guests someday.

This was our third time staying with SamAndSarah and each time it gets better and better! Their farm is one of go to sites where we will plan our itinerary around their location. Such gracious hosts and people we consider friends! We look forward to our next visit or meeting up with them when they're out on the road.
SamAndSarah hosted us again on our way back home and they were just as wonderful. Helpful in parking and filled our water tank. Thank you for your hospitality!
SamAndSarah were so nice and made us feel welcome. The parking area was level and easy to access. We would have enjoyed spending more time together and meeting all of the animals but the weather did not cooperate at all...very cold and rainy. Their dogs were very sweet and well behaved. We enjoyed the gift from Sarah at breakfast! We would recommend anyone passing through the area stay with SamAndSarah!
Sam and Sarah are gracious hosts as always. Their place is a real gem, a little piece of "country living" that's not too far from the conveniences of Fort Worth & beyond. Plenty of room to spread out and relax. We enjoyed visiting with their other guests, and the dinner and farm fresh eggs were above and beyond the call of duty.
Amazing hosts, amazing locating. They were super accommodating and great to chat with. We would recommend Sam and Sarah’s place to anyone in their area and will definitely be back.
Sam and Sarah met us with a flashlight when we unexpectedly arrived at dusk. They helped us get settled and then invited us to hang out fireside. They offered us farm fresh eggs and gave us a tour of their beautiful farm and garden. Wonderful people! I'm so thankful for this experience. Thank you, Sam and Sarah for a wonderful stay. We will be back!
Sam&sarah’s was a perfect place to stay as I traveled across the country. The whole family (including the dog) were friendly and generous with assistance.
Thanks for making me feel so welcome!
S & S were great hosts and a good spot to Boondock. Would visit again when in the area. Thanks
Upon arriving our hosts were out front ready to greet us with warm and welcoming smiles. They showed us to our spot that provided the power necessary for our air conditioner which is a must have in August around these parts. After settling in a bit, they kindly showed us around while having ready at hand a dozen fresh eggs they gave us with a friendly letter attached which invited us to keep in touch. The way they host their site, to us, is in perfect tune with what we feel boondockerswelcome.com's first mission might have been, one of camaraderie. These two are super kind and great hosts, we would absolutely recommend you get the chance to meet them!
We had a great stay at Friends in RV Spaces. They provided a level space with 50 amp service. Sam gave us a tour of their beautiful garden and farm animals and even gave us some fresh farm eggs which we enjoyed for breakfast. This is a great place to stay in the DFW area.
When we arrived at Sam and Sarah's property, we were not in good spirits. After receiving some advice from sam, Our mood was lifted. Their farm is very quiet and relaxing. They are very friendly and kind. They showed us around their farm and they have such wonderful puppies. They are very helpful with everything. Sarah mom was such a sweet heart. We were truly blessed to meet these wonderful people and I am glad that we got to experience this. If we are ever in Texas again we would stay here. Thank you for your hospitality! We hope one day we can return the favor!.
Great location for touring Fort Worth and Weathetford.
Very nice hosts ,the offered some vegetables and eggs from the farm,showed us around, we had great conversations and a good time.
Thank you very much.
Quiet place, nice little farm. Very friendly hosts. We enjoyed the stay, which was only one night - we would have liked to stay longer. We can recommend that spot to any guest.
Sam and Sarah were wonderful! Sam Met me when I arrived even without call ahead (I dialed the wrong number, duh). Helped me back in and even helped level my TT. Sarah presented me with 18 farm fresh organic eggs. The conversations were great an informative about their farm. It was a great place to gather my strength and relax. Thank you guys for sharing your lives with me.
This was my first time and I could not have ask fir a better exsperiance! I absolutley loved it their! Quiet, orderly, clean and felt very safe. Sam and Sarah are a soft spoken, hard working no bull couple with very BIG hearts! I truly enjoyed my stay. Waking up to fresh laid eggs on my steps. What??? Who does that??? Sam and Sarah does! Not only that but being invited to a holiday weekend meal with their family. I hope I did not talk your guys ears off. Sam and Sarah thank you for all that you do and offer. I pray you recieve three folds back. May God bless you abundantly for your generosity and hospitality!
Sam and Sarah could not have been more gracious They welcomed us to their property in the midst of a family reunion and took time to greet us with a gift. They paused their gardening chores to show us around the farm, and get to know us. I hope our paths cross again, maybe at the air show in Minnesota next year. I am sorry we could not have said so long before leaving, but we did not want to hold up their gardening chores any longer.
They accommodated me just before a Holiday on fairly short notice. It was a good experience not too far from the city, but far enough to get some rest. The hosts were very welcoming.
A peaceful place in the country side of Texas! Thank you!
Wow! What a wonderful stay we had with Sam and Sarah. So friendly, easy to talk to and accommodating of our needs. They are good stewards of the earth with their huge organic garden and their herd of goats and flock of chickens. We so appreciated their gift of the farm fresh eggs. They were able to give us great ideas about touring the area.
Sam and Sarah if you are out our way, please stop so we can return the favor

First off... I was impressed with how quickly I received a response for my stay request. I received plenty of room to park. There’s a nice quiet road to walk the dog. I was offered a tour of the farm. I loved taking pics of the animals… and the fresh eggs were a thoughtful bonus. I consider this sweet family my friends now. I can’t wait to visit them again <3
Sam and Sarah’s property is beautiful and gave a peaceful place to rest for the night. They were so hospitable, welcoming us with farm-fresh eggs and taking time to show us around their property. Our girls loved meeting the chickens and goats. We look forward to returning during the growing season so we can experience the organic garden!
Sam and Sarah greeted us with fresh eggs from their own chickens. They were very friendly and welcoming. They showed us the garden and their animals. We especially liked the baby goats. We would like to come back if in the area. We hope they'll come to Minnesota so we can return their hospitality.
Sam and Sarah were fantastic hosts! This was our very first time using boondockerswelcome and had a wonderful experience. Sam and Sarah are very down to earth and friendly. They approved our stay on such short notice, which was an absolute blessing in itself and even went out of their way to invite us over for dinner one evening. The location is close enough to “everything” yet far enough to where we were in the country. Would recommend this location and the hosts over and over again!
We are very thankful for their generosity in letting us park our RV on their property especially over the Christmas holiday. This was our first Boondockers experience and they were great hosts. Thank you sooo much.
They are a great couple living on a small farm. Very good place to park and rest. Plenty of room to turnaround. It was great to be there and visit. They are very friendly and helpful. Peaceful with fresh air and no city noise. I hope to go back there again in the spring.
We really enjoyed our few days we stayed at SamAndSarah in Azle, TX. They have a very nice quiet, country location at their farm, with easy access to the Lake Worth/Fort Worth area. We had a few maintenance/personal items to attend to after being on the road for 1-month and they made it easy for us to do that at/from their BDW host location. Thanks again SamAndSarah for hosting us and we hope to see you visiting with us at our location some time in the future!!
They gave our kids a tour of the farm including goats, chickens and of course their dogs! Wide open space to park in and far enough from the city you get that country vibe. Our host even brought us farm fresh eggs and home made jam! Could not recommend this place enough!
We enjoyed our second stay at their property. Hosts are friendly and we consider them friends. We would absolutely stay with them again.
We could not have had more hospitable hosts than Sam and Sarah! Even though we arrived in a rainstorm, Sam made a point to come out and make sure we were all set and comfortable. When we left the next morning, the two of them came out to say good-bye and even sent us on our way with some farm products. Very kind people, we wish them all the best.
We had a comfortable stay on Sam & Sarah's property. Our 30' travel trailer was parked on wood chip ground cover with plenty of room. Area was quiet except for roosters which were not a problem for us but our trailer windows were closed at this time of year. We would absolutely stay with them again and were very thankful for the gift of items from their farm.
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. 👍
