I am a full time minister/pastor. We enjoy camping but as we do have a large garden there is always something to be done.
Gardening, a tad of handyman as I do as much maintenance as I can on our own hard shell pop up camper.,
two mid size dogs. Sometimes they go along and sometimes stay home.
There are plenty in the wider Four Corners region

While I didn't stay at his place he deserves a positive reference for being responsive to messages.
We had a very good time there and got some good informations for our journey. Thanks again for having us!
Great host. Parked right near a busy highway but the traffic died down about bedtime so it was no problem.
Brief overnight stay. Our host has created amazing gardens in the city.
We were graciously welcomed even though he was in the middle of a busy schedule! Large parking lot. Busy intersection that was much quieter after 11:00pm. Beautiful garden. We would be glad to stay again if in the area. We saw a double rainbow after a rainstorm. Stunning!
I'm not sure I've ever met any pastor as busy and energetic and jack-of-all trades as John! He worked on the grounds before the sun came up and well after it went down. His backyard is a lush, shady, green oasis with beautiful flowers and covered picnic tables. He and his wife are wonderful hosts - not sure how they do it - the week I visited they were running VBS (Vacation Bible School) and John had driven a van around town to pick up kids - but, sadly, I didn't get a chance to drop in to watch their daily program. When I was leaving he was busy selling garden plants and I waited in line to say goodbye. And he still managed to make time to help me solve an issue with my awning and check on me a number of times.
Perfect location - not too noisy, only the occasional air brakes from trucks making the turn out on the highway. There's plenty of room to park at this church - wide open gravel lot, but no shade trees overhead. If you need eggs, buy them here! If you're on your way home, buy your garden plants here.
Really enjoyed meeting John and it was nice to have a quite place for the night. We parked right in front of his church. Just wish we could have stayed longer and had some of his fresh eggs. Sharon
Great location to visit surrounding attractions. Nice host.
Thanks John & Marcie for being such great hosts. We would definitely stay there again if we visited the area another time.
Parking area is in church parking lot. There's a lot of road noise till about 10:30p.m., then wasn't too bad except for the occasional air brakes from semi's.
We had a great time talking with John and my wife & John talked gardening for about an hour. John's wife has chickens, and if your lucky she won't be sold out. We had her fresh eggs for dinner & again for breakfast.
Would definitely stay here agt if in the neighborhood!
John was so very kind and welcoming. He had just had a molar pulled but came over anyway to greet us and make sure we were settled ok.
This was exactly the stop we needed. John was a pleasure to meet and helpful in so many ways and his wife sells fresh eggs that we can highly recommend as well. Thank you for having us John.
