Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We are hoping to go FT in five years. We currently live in ND but have lived in many parts of this great country.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Do I have any great skills? no. I do have a working knowledge of a lot of things. I do have some solar knowledge as we currently live off grid nine months out of the year. We have a 9k system I installed myself. I also have a few wood working tools and like to play in the shop. Again, jack of all trades and master of none.

northdakotanut's Pets

We do not have pets and don't think I ever will again. Having said that, I don't care if you do as long as your pets are yours. Basic responsibility is all I ask of anyone. I am not anti pet, I just don't want one.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

We like getting out and off the beaten path. The more wildlife the better. We have a lot to learn yet in that regard.

northdakotanut's Hometown

Lisbon ND A small town off the path about 75 miles SW of Fargo.

A Beautiful Secluded Desert Stay.

Thanks, John. I really enjoyed my stay on your huge natural desert property. It was very quiet even though it was quite close to the road. And the natural beauty and solitude of the desert environment was perfect for my stay in the Deming area. I hope to be able to stay there again sometime when I swing through Deming, again. It's a great place for anyone looking for quiet and a natural, desert boondocking experience and still be only 10 minutes from all the conveniences of town. 👍


May 2019

Excellent Experience

This was a great place to stay in Deming, and the hosts were kind enough to let us extend our stay. We'd stay here again.


May 2019

Excellent Experience

We really enjoyed our stay at the Deming Lot. We even requested an extra day just to rest and enjoy the peace and quiet.

Lonely desert

Nice welcome from the host. A great place for desert lovers.

Kiwis on move

We had a wonderful night and a beautiful sunset thank you very much for letting us use your property. This it’s close to the i10 about 2 miles you can get fuel on the way and propane 🇳🇿 👍


April 2019

Sweet spot!

This was an easy overnight stop off Rte 10. Off a dirt road, but nice and flat.
The host was very responsive and pleasant. Would definitely stop here again.


April 2019

Very peaceful

Very peaceful very easy access to I-10 there is a Valero gas station near it with a dump station and RV gas pump. The owner was very helpful and accommodating and I would stay again.

Great Quiet Stay

Enjoyed a very quiet and peaceful stay at The Deming Lot. Site was easy to find with multiple level parking spots to choose from. Thanks northdakotanut for providing this great location in NM!


March 2019

Convenient Quiet Spot with a Great View

We enjoyed our one night stay with a wonderful view of the mountains. Quiet and secluded yet only a few minutes from the interstate.
Host is not on site but was very quick to respond to our request and was very helpful.

Deming Oasis

Awesome overnight experience. Awesome sunrise and sunset.
Thanks for the stay.
Regards Mr Bill


March 2019

Great stay

We found the lot with no problem. Many nice spots to setup. Very quiet.near town. Great spot to spend a day or a few. Would visit this spot again. John was easy to contact.


March 2019

Lovely Sunset/Sunrise

Our one night stay at the Deming Lot was ideal: got in a little before sunset (directions from I-10 were spot on) after a stormy drive from T or C; I was worried about the sand after 2 inches of rain (34ft class A), but the spot was quite durable; great mountain views and a beautiful sunrise. The only uncontrollable downside was a distant neighbor who left their dog chained outside in 20 degree temps. NDNut was incredibly attentive to all our questions and concerns, much thanks and praise!


February 2019

Quiet and convenient stay

Had good communication from the host. Found section easily. Was a good 2 night break as had travelled 6 1/2 hours. Great space just to chill. Kids loved the space to play around just be careful of the thorns. lots of wildlife.


February 2019

Great host

Super flexible and quick responses. We really appreciated the space so close off he hwy. the host isn’t at the property but he was so informative.


February 2019


Quiet and peaceful, couldn't ask for anything more. Friendly host with good communication. Even had a pair of coyotes sing to me at breakfast!


February 2019

Great Location

Close to Deming and it’s amenities.
Unfortunately the wind came up and we were getting somewhat of a sand blasting so had to move to a more sheltered location.
Thanks to Northdakotanuts for their hospitality.


January 2019

Peaceful place to hang!

We really appreciated an out of the way, quiet and peaceful place to just hang out for a few days. Lovely night skies and beautiful sunrises and sunsets. What's not to like?! :) Our hosts couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating, even though we didn't have the pleasure of meeting them face to face. Thanks so much!


January 2019

Place to be for sunset and sunrise.

Beautiful location to enjoy the sunset and a breathtaking sunrise. It felt like we were miles from town but in reality is was just a mile or so.


January 2019

Awesome Property!

Deming Lot is awesome-easy to set up very level-it was a perfect Boondocking spot for us!


January 2019

Really nice!!

Great place , secluded. Pointy plants around tho..Lol.. really nice people. Thanks so much for letting us stay here!!!!! Really enjoyed. Good time.


January 2019

Beautiful night sky

Quiet place. Easy enough to find. We have a 40ft 5th wheel and if you drive down the road to the GPS coordinates given, there is space between the bushes where you can turn around and set up. A few unsightly buildings nearby, but once set up, you can barely see them and the awesome sunset and starry night more than make up for it.


January 2019

Starry, starry night

For us city dwellers, the immense expanse of sky filled with infinite stars was a rare treat. There are few street signs, so I recommend using GPS rather than the host’s directions. We highly recommend this site.


January 2019

True boondocking

Thanks for the opportunity. Fyi thorns and stickers are hard on dogs feet...great spot for someone who does not have pets.....very helpful host!


January 2019

Quiet and Perfect!

We stayed 2 nights in January, and certainly got the cold weather, but it was easy enough to find and very quiet. Bonus, the host left a scavenger hunt for kids! Might still be available for a few more visiting families. Thanks NDNut!


December 2018

Pleasantly quiet!

Great quiet spot for an overnighter! Very much enjoyed our stay and got the added bonus of getting to meet the owner who is not normally around! John was extremely helpful and hospitable!
Google maps will bring you right to the edge of the property and when it says you have arrived if you just continue about 100 more yards it will be very clear where are the available spots will be on the right side of the road! This was my experience by putting the actual physical address into Google maps!
We will remember this place and stay there again without any question!


December 2018


Just what I needed.
So quiet and peaceful!
I was actually checking with realtors.
Nice town, gentle people.


December 2018

Pleasant stay

Once found was very easy to access. Loved watching the effects of the sun and clouds on the mountains on 3 sides, which portrayed changes several times a day. Beautiful! Room for several full size motorhomes. I would recommend this site. The owner was more than helpful and answered quickly when I did need to call once


December 2018

Quiet place

John was quick to respond to our request. The lot was level and quiet, just a bit soft from some recent rain. Road in was fine for our 32 ft class a and toad. Thanks again for the hospitality.


November 2018

Quiet, Stars, and Sunshine!

The great place to stay off the road. We will definitely be using this location again whenever we are in the area. Owner was very responsive.


October 2018

Nice quiet spot

Directions from the website are right on.


April 2018

Nice stay

northdakotanut was extremely helpful while I was locating this cool out of the way spot. Lots of room and pretty easy to find level places to park. Very primitive, just right to get away from it all.


March 2018

Quiet spot.

This spot is a lot just outside of Demming, NM. The are no buildings on the lot so knowing exactly where the boundaries of the lot were was a little difficult but it was easy to see where other Boondockers had parked befor. This is a very quiet spot with easy access and very good cell reception.


February 2018

Deming NM

Mother Nature caused a rain out on the way to spring training in AZ but the interaction with John was a hit! Directions, timely replies and the land were right on but the rain caused a change of direction. Will look for you in ND someday...until then many thanks for your time!


January 2018

Wilderness get away

John was very quick on the draw to respond back to me. I was very late getting to his property, but that didn't matter as it is vacant land and direction were easy to follow. I was able to stay two nights and thoroughly enjoyed the adventure John provided for me. I would definitely stop by again.


January 2018

Very helpful long-distance host

The host for this location was very patient and helpful, as I had a bit of trouble locating the place since it is pretty rural and not marked. Once we figured it out though, I was able to camp there successfully and get a couple really nice nights of peaceful stargazing in.


January 2018

Awesome Off Grid boondocking location

An excellent way to camp. Awesome spot. Great sunset. Thanks NorthDakotaNut...

Lovely open space

Thank you so much for hosting us, you are so kind and helpful. The plot of land is absolutely perfect for boondockers, and would recommend. We visited city of Rocks while we were there which is only 20 mins away!
We have left some painted rocks for others to find hope someone finds them!
