Dave retired from the Air Force after 30 years of service in communications then worked at a local college in the IT dept and retired from there. I am a retired Physical Therapist Assistant. I play around with the guitar and like photography (even tho I'm not that good with either yet!). We have lived in Turkey, Phillipines, Germany, Greece, and Japan as well as OK, FL, RI, SC, and TX with the Air Force as our guide. Dave has enjoyed long-distance backpacking - he did a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail (GA to Maine) in 1997, a section of the Pacific Crest Trail, and 2,000 miles of the Continental Divide Trail. I'm afraid I don't have the fortitude for that but do enjoy most things outdoors! We still think of ourselves as younger than the calendar tells us and still feel there are so many places we still want to see and enjoy!
We live on 5 acres with easy access to/from I-40 east of Oklahoma City, OK. We have an indoor/outdoor dog and a few goats to keep the weeds down in the pasture. We no longer have horses but we can accommodate horses if needed. We can provide a secure place inside the pasture fence for any vehicle that can fit thru the gate (10'). The area is big enough to turn around easily so generally pull-thru parking needs are not an issue. It's quiet out here and relatively convenient to activities in Oklahoma City. We look forward to meeting some new people and going to some new places!
We have a 30' (jack-to-rear measurement) Heartland North Trail bumper-pull trailer with one slide, towed by a Chevy 2500 truck.
Great people. Loved spending time with them. Wish we had more reason to pass their way.
We came in the pouring rain and was greeted warmly by Steph at the gate. The location was right off I-40 which made it super convenient during our travel towards the Grand Canyon. Nice spot near the fence and house with water and electric hookup, couldn't ask for more! My kids enjoyed the horses and goat on the property so overall a perfect experience!
Had a great visit, welcoming couple. Enjoyed the horses. Stayed in the pasture. It was perfect! Highly recommend.
Dave and Steph were fantastic hosts, so welcoming and friendly from the moment we arrived. We talked and laughed into the wee small hours. It was a shame our plans meant we could only spend one night with them - would love to have stayed longer. The site is very quiet and peaceful and close enough to Oklahoma City for sightseeing.
Thanks so much for having allowed me to visit your beautiful property. Wish I could have spent more time.
Kind and very hospitable! We really enjoyed getting to know them! Love animals and were patient with our cats, especially Daisy the dog! Very knowledgeable with RVs - we learned a lot! A very memorable 1st BDW experience. We hope to come in contact with them again soon!
Peaceful,bucolic area near OKC. Very hospitable couple who love animals. We had so much in common with them. We where given a choice on where to park our 32ft class A: driveway or mowed field of grass. Chose the 5 acre field with some chickens and 2 goats. The animals were curious, but did not bother us (added to the fun) . Loved it. Really did not need to unhook our toad. Hope to see them(+ their boxer Daisy) again soon in the NorthWest. J n K
We arrived in the early afternoon with a friendly warm welcome! We visited and shared stories until the early evening. We really enjoyed our visit! Thank You for hosting our family!
Dave n Steph were such wonderful hosts. We enjoyed our time together and got to meet the goats also. With the electric provided I was able to stat warm. Thanks again, Jim G.
Meant to send this already... sorry for the delay. You were awesome! We loved this stop... It was the first time we were hosted and it has spoiled us for everyone else... not complaining! Thank you thank you thank you! You're definitely our favorite so far. Friendly, warm, considerate, accommodating, kind... are there more adjectives? You both are worth them all. Thank you. In case we weren't clear, we do recommend these hosts as a must stop... go out of your way even, just for the privilege of meeting them.
Easy access from I-40, and we parked in the pasture behind the house. 20 amp hookup was right at the fence, and water was available (but we didn't need it). A horse and 5 goats had access to the pasture and were curious about our presence, but kept their distance. Dave n Steph were warm and welcoming, and we spent the evening talking and sharing life stories. We wouldn't hesitate to stop in again if we are in the area.
