Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Retired army, disabled veteran married to wonderful women who loves camping also. Fishing hiking photography and such are major time consuming events. Service dog and sidekick present at house. Love pets.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Pretty decent as a photographer and try to help people when we can. Good with computers and other technology issues along with helping Veterans find their way around the VA system (or lack of).

Kphyfe's Pets

Yes we now have THREE! Boaz our oldest, Sammy is our newest and adjusting well to camping and travelling.. Mike, our lab, is a service dog from Vet Dogs and provides some amazing tasks. The other two are wanna-be Service Dogs :-)

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Anywhere anywhere anytime is my motto

Kphyfe's Hometown

Both of us are transplants from Connecticut to North Carolina. We love the climate in NC but do try to escape to cooler temps in the hot summer months. Unfortunately, my wife is still working full time but we do travel to the mountains of NC and TN.

Kphyfe's Rig

Rig Type: Truck Camper

23 feet long

I have a Ford F 350 dually short bed with an Arctic Fox 865 TC no slides. Have solar so rarely use electricity or generator unless it’s super hot. We pretty much fit in a parking spot and hopefully no one knows we're there we try to not bother anyone unless they wish to be sociable. Self contained is our goal.

Beyond Welcoming

Robin’s Nest owners are warm, friendly, extremely likable folk who open their home and hearts to Boondockers. Kphyfe kept in close touch with me before my arrival providing info on local resources. Their neighborhood offered me a setting to walk and shop. The rest of the story: the conversation flowed easily covering all manner of topics, life stories were shared, and their three lovable dogs gave me a sense of home. I cannot thank them enough for their kindness and generosity.

The hosts were friendly and I enjoyed boondocking at Robin's Nest. Thank you for your conversation and hospitality. Robin's Nest is an A+ boondocking spot conveniently located and welcoming.

Great spot and convenient to Hwy 40

You will enjoy this gem of a spot! Very gracious hosts. You'll love meeting their fur babies. Statesville has a cute downtown area and if you are lucky you can visit the Farmer's market.

Great location, great people!

Had a great night's sleep in a nice safe neighborhood right off the freeway. Host was very nice, polite, and accommodating. Gave me a couple choices of places to park and answered any questions I had. I'd definitely recommend this location for anyone traveling through this area of NC. Thank you! 😀

Great communication

We had a delightful stay at Robins Nest!! They communicated to us promptly and thoroughly. Although we didn’t have a chance to visit, they welcomed us to delicious strawberries in their garden!!
We left a day early because of the heat, but wouldn’t hesitate to stay again!!

Very Friendly Hosts, Good nights sleep

Grest Night

We met this couple in New Hampshire and stayed at Robin’s Nest for a stay on our way back to GA. What a great place to jump off the highway. Great company and conversation. Fellow campers lost of stories and friendship. Nice quiet place close to the highway.
