I’m 37, a Personal Chef who is traveling the country, just my dog DUKE and I.

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Hello... my name is Chris.
I’m a 38 yr old Personal Chef from El Paso Texas though I am originally from Austin Texas.
I sold my businesses and am traveling the country in my 2014 Coachmen Mirada. We sold everything and took off on Feb 27th 2019, and my goodness, the year just flew by.
It is just myself and my beautiful 7 yr old German Shepherd named DUKE.
I have raised him since he was 8 weeks and our goal is to travel the country for another year as we visit all 50 states and search for a new home. Preferably a place where DUKE can roam free.
He is an amazingly well behaved boy.
I am a single man with no kids so I figure, what better time than now to hit the road and find a new city to call home.
Thank you so much to any potential hosts and we both look forward to meeting you.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Well I am a Personal Chef . I use to be a live in Chef so I guess my skill is cooking but my passion in life is guest service. As the proud owner of The Soup Truck in El Paso you will see through my reviews how taking care of my guests was my true skill.

RVingTheCountry's Pets

Yes.... my best buddy DUKE .
A handsome 7 yr old German Sherpherd.
Very well behaved and rarely barks, unless he dreaming of running. Haha

Favorite Boondocking Locations

We have been enjoying every boondocking locations we have been to. They are all unique and different in a great way!
Luckily I am blessed to have my new coach come with a solar panel to charge my electricity daily so we should be pretty self sufficient.
It is a class A so it does have a built in generator and large water tanks to take care of my dog and I,

RVingTheCountry's Hometown

I’m originally from Austin Texas but I moved to El Paso to take care of my grandmother. I opened a very popular food truck called The Soup Truck. Just search THE SOUP TRUCK in El Paso Texas and you will find me. Almost every review mentions my kindness and guest service . Kindness is my passion in life.

Nice Young Man

It was fun meeting Mr. RVing the Country and Duke. Duke is such a gentleman and very well behaved. He got plenty of exercise chasing his orange ball around the yard. Mr. RVing the country was a gentleman, too. He graciously helped me fix my mailbox that I knocked off it's pedestal. Safe travels and may your adventures never end.

Missing Duke

We were glad to host Duke and his friend. Quiet guests and appreciative of the space to roam. Especially Duke.

We really enjoyed having RVing the Country. Chris was very polite and Duke was very well behaved. Our grandson enjoyed playing with Duke and our dog got some much needed exercise. They are welcome back anytime!

Wonderful guests!

We loved having our two and four legged guests stay with us for a few days. Super nice, great communication skills, a pleasure to host. I love hearing about their cross country adventures and learning some tricks of the trade. They are both welcome back anytime! We wish you the best in all your travels and future adventures! Hopefully our paths will cross again sometime!

Talk about burning up the roadways.
Great guy living his dream with his sidekick DUKE, what an amazing dog - super well trained.
This dual Boondockers are always welcomed back here.

Nice polite young man and wonderful dog

C and his best friend Duke were like a breath of fresh air for us. Duke and jake had a wonderful time doing what dogs like to do. Very personable young man and we enjoyed his company immensely. Hope we get a chance to see him again. If you get a chance to meet him do not pass it up!!

DUKE was a wonderful guest and felt right at home with our family. Oh, and his buddy C is pretty cool too, LOL. They can come back any time, we hope to see both gentlemen again.

A guy and his dog

Chris and Duke were excellent guests! Duke is the best behaved and likable dog you will ever meet. Very well mannered, and a joy to have around! Chris too! Seriously, they were a joy to host and are welcome back in our driveway any time. If I could give them a better than positive rating I would.

Pleasant Guests

RVingtheCountry were pleasant, respectful guests. We had some nice conversations and played fetch with Duke. They interacted well with our critters and were quiet - I don’t think Duke barked one time. Duke is a well-behaved dog, not aggressive at all. He was in our yard to play several times and interacted with our three female dogs well. They are welcome back anytime!


June 2020


Sweet young man and a wonderful dog. Good conversation with the young man and very playful dog.


May 2020

Sweet dog, nice master!

We hardly knew Duke and his traveling companion were here. Duke is a sweet, well behaved German Shepard. He set a fine example for our rowdy, barking, fur bags. His master is very polite and respectful. He is also industrious and talented as he remodels his rolling home. These guys are welcome back anytime!


March 2020

Two fun loving guys

RVingTheCountry settled in during troubled times and seemed to have an enjoyable stay before heading back to home after a journey that took them all over this great country. Its a given Duke will steal your heart, but his master is also a lovable guy.
We had some great conversations while "social distancing". Missed them when they left.


March 2020

Great guests.

We really enjoyed having Chris and Duke. I love hosting. My son’s dog “Koda” loved playing with Duke everyday. Chris and Duke are welcome back any time.

RVing the Country & Duke are Great Guests

We enjoyed hosting Duke and his chauffeur. They oosed Texas charm, were lots of fun and very polite guests. Duke was well behaved and had fun romping in a wide open space. They are now part of our BW guest family and we hope to see them in the future when they are in this area again. I'm sure they will have been to many other places and will have stories to share.


March 2020

Great Guests

The puppy loves to play and is so friendly. His Master too is kind and friendly but does not fetch. If the puppy spoke English I am sure he would tell of all the ventures he has had travelling in a RV seeing the USA. They were a joy to host and we enjoyed our time together which means they can return anytime they need to stop by.


February 2020

February 2020

Fun Visit

We had a great visit with RVingTheCountry and his sweet and well behaved pup. He is very friendly and we enjoyed getting to know him and hear about his adventures. We had a potluck with our Boondockers and he made a delicious cauliflower soup. We would welcome them back anytime.


January 2020

Very nice guy and cute dog too

Nice, respectful and good communicator. Nice rig and set up too :)

Chance to rest and repair

What a charming, respectful young gentleman. Duke is an outstanding sidekick.
Glad Chris had a quiet safe place to rest and work on his jeep and plan for his trip to the Keys.
Welcome back any time and by any host. Loved how he kept his site and dog in best presentation.


January 2020

nice young man and duke the pup was great

Duke enjoyed playing with our pups and was very generous with his toys. Chris was helpful and very interested in hearing our stories and a fine person. We would welcome him and Duke at any time.

Duke and his Human

WOW.... what a pair... Duke run's the show and has his well behaved human at his side.
Really enjoyed them in my little corner of the world (especially the four legged one).
This young man is doing what most should have done at a young age.... he is traveling the USA and enjoying every minute in doing so.... I am jelly for his travels and experiences...
Duke, you are welcome back anytime and you might have to bring what's his name with you...

Great Boondocker, friendly, clean, quiet!

I enjoyed meeting this nice young man and his quiet, lovely Shepherd dog. Highly recommend them as guests!


October 2019

Great couple

Chris and his German sheperd were a blast. We had another family of boondockers and had up to 7 dogs and Three children running around. Both Chris and the dog were very friendly and made everyone feel right at home. We enjoyed both families and were happy to host Chris and his dog.

Nice man, awesome dog

RVing the country and his dog are welcome back anytime. Polite and friendly, no trouble. The dog is a very well behaved and quiet travel companion for his master!
