My partner and I are retired and have moved from Houston, Texas to Huntsville, Texas. We purchased a class A and are planning to start traveling in 2018. We are new to the lifestyle but anxious to see the USA!
I'd have to say we are in the learning stage ourselves as we have not utilized our rig very much. I'm a Realtor with a degree in Accounting (don't do my own taxes!). My partner is a Civil Engineer and is able to figure out most things that leave me scratching my head. We have knowledge about RV's from watching endless YouTube videos but not so much practical experience.
We have 3 dogs in the 5 to 10 pound range. The smallest is the guard dog and is afraid of nothing! The other two will lick you to death. All three have done limited travel in the RV and adjust well to that.
We have never boondocked but plan to do some of that as well.
We live in a riverside community about 15 miles East of Huntsville on the Trinity River. Our property is about an acre of land with fishing dock and boat launch a few blocks away. The Trinity feeds into Lake Livingston. While we are in the country we have civilization close by with most of the big name restaurants and shopping venues a short drive away.
These Boondockers have truly taken things to a new level :) with 50amp, water, dump point and now your very own luxury deck to relax on ! We just wish we could have stayed with you longer to enjoy the facilities - Thank you guys
We enjoyed our stay. Thanks for welcoming us as we are beginning to learn the RVing experience. We sought this opportunity to learn about our rig and our planning needs and were successful. Your location is inviting and comfortable.
Eager to get into the experience of boondocking, we scheduled a visit with Neal and Sun. After requesting a stay, we got a fast and positive response. Weather concerns caused us to need to delay our arrival by a day and they were very understanding about that. We arrived in the afternoon and set up our camper, then visited with them. It was a very pleasant visit and was good to meet new friends.
Thanks, guys, for hosting us. All the best to you!
Once again Neal & Sun kindly welcomed me to their homestead and made me feel welcome & comfortable. Such compassion & kindness, feel privileged to stay and meet such Texas Treasures!!! Much Appreciated!
From a FULL hook up )20,30 & 50 amp, water & sewer) to country setting, the Warmest Welcome and multiple kindnesses, Neal & Sun created a oasis for themselves and their guests. They have a large shaded deck with table & multiple chairs and a gas BBQ Grill right next to their boondock site. They are new RVers and plan to travel more in the near future. They have a few small dogs so welcomed by furry companion to join their pack in a fenced yard. (They also have the place next door for sale, their original domicile) with another large fenced area with some beautiful red hens. They allowed me to use the full bathroom And laundry in the house4sale! Incredibly kind, interesting, sociable if guest desires engagement. After hooking up, they helped me back in, I walked the dog around their area. Neal & Sun's home is a little pocket oasis, surrounded by country roads with older or abandoned mobile homes. As they are newly retired, they & a friend, were mostly around and I felt very welcome & safe. They even invited me to dinner the first night! Since I had been driving long hours the preceding week (with no tow car) I thoroughly enjoyed parking for 2 nights and just relaxing. Sitting on their back porch visiting with them or on the side deck, listening to the birds singing, their hens clucking or the few goats across the street was a wonderful respite from the road. (Also offered use of ther WIFI, available on their porch.) Neal and Sun made me feel like family and I plan to stay in touch with such great new friends!
