Why do I want to boondock? The less traveled path, wide open spaces, and of course, to make my camping funds go further!
Don't know how to repair your rig, but I'll keep you company while you wait for the repair truck.<emoji>
Looking forward to finding this out.
2017 Sprinter cargo van. Dark bluish grey, currently bare, will grow inwardly over the next few years as funds allow. Nicknamed "Baby Whale."
The Thornyrose is a perfect place to stay inside the city of Albuquerque. Close to everything, pretty quiet, especially for the city, safe, and the host is extremely kind and very communicative and helpful. I highly recommend and am very thankful for the blessing.
Thornyrrose is a very pleasant host and the driveway parking spot is flat. The urban location has many amenities nearby.
This a terrific site set in Albuquerque, convenient for some site seeing. Our host is a very nice person who gave us a ton of ideas for our visit in the region. Our 25 ft motor home fit perfectly in the driveway. Please be aware that this is an urban location so some background noise will be present during the night. However this did not bother us at all. Overall a nice comfortable stay. Thank you for the hospitality and great communication.
I stayed with Thornyrose for a single night in March. She responded quickly and positively. Her situation was exactly as described. She greeted me upon arrival, offering me either the driveway or the street, and even invited me to a public event happening nearby. Because I'm used to living in rural areas, and her home is very near a major artery in Albuquerque, I decided to stay just a single night. Other than typical city noise which was bothersome to me, it was a very positive experience. Thank you, Thornyrose ~
We stayed with Thornyrrose in March 2017 and she made our boondocking so wonderful. She was informative, kind, thoughtful, and flexible. She has also hosted numerous times and that expertise was very helpful in figuring out the best parking and visit arrangements. We highly recommend her as a host. Thanks, Thornyrrose!!
We stayed here a month ago, Oct. 2016, during the Albuquerque Hot Air Balloon Fiesta, and found it very comfortable and convenient for all things. It was an easy drive to the Sandia Peak Tramway (we didn't take the tram - way too crowded - but we did hike on the trails), very quick and easy drive to the shopping center for the Balloon Fiesta shuttle, and a fairly easy drive to Old Town. Thornyrrose very kindly parked on the street so we could park in her driveway for a couple of nights. Unfortunately, between her work schedule and our up and out early for the Fiesta activities, and home late after more Fiesta activities, we met and spoke with her only briefly as she went to work one mornings. But through our email correspondence, she was very helpful and friendly.
Stayed with Thornyrrose during the Albuquerque Ballon Festival. She was very knowledgeable about things to do and places to eat in her area. We had plenty of room for our 23ft camper van in her driveway. We really enjoyed talking with her about traveling.
We had a lovely time staying at Thorny Roses place. She was as nice as could be and we couldn't have asked for a better host.
Had an awesome stop at thoryrose's in Albuquerque. Great host. Very fast in communication. Extremely friendly. Would love to stop by again.
The response time was exceptional, the host is exceptional, the location is exceptional what more cam I say except I had an exceptional time. Thank you.
We enjoyed the close to everything location whole staying with Thornyrose in ABQ. We got some great tips on places to camp nearby from our gracious host as well. Thanks, see you again!
We had so much fun getting to know Thornyrrose, who made us feel immediately welcome and, at the same time, free to do our own thing and come and go as we pleased. The location is central, with easy access to lots of shopping as well as the Interstates Highways. Than you for the outstanding hospitality and two peaceful nights!
Quiet neighborhood. Easy to locate and very easy to get to the Balloon Fiesta from here. An actual neighborhood where I could take my dogs for a walk in the morning. Nice host too.
