Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I am retired and my wife is semi-retired. She does two farmer's markets a week during the season. We love to RV and ATV. We love animals, meeting new people and traveling around our beautiful country.

Skills & Expertise to Share

My wife is a great cook, gardener and outstanding hairdresser. I am not real mechanically inclined so she helps me there.

HobbyFarm's Pets

We have a Great Pyrenees and a Miniature Schnauzer who travels with us most of the time. We have have downsized our animal population a lot to free us up more to travel. Have a few guineas that entertain us now along with our dogs.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Almost anywhere in the west. Love Quartzsite, Utah and Colorado almost anywhere out west. BLM land.

HobbyFarm's Hometown

My wife in from Paris, TX and a country girl. I am the city boy living on in the country now. We do love our farm and love to come back to it after a trip in our RV.

Great Guest

Had a great time chatting with Him and answering his questions and learning about Texas. Joked about Bison coming by in the morning and believe it or not they surrounded his rig in the morning. Great guest welcome anytime.

Beautiful Sunrise!

Had a great time. Host were very gracious and their property was beautiful. Had some difficulty parking such a big rig/tow vehicle I’m sure partly due to being a newbie but parking for rigs smaller than ours would be excellent. Ours is 52 feet rig and tow vehicle combined. Overall a beautiful place to visit hosted by a wonderful couple.

Fantastic hosts with a relaxing quiet space with some great waking trails

My son said to say it was amazing and that's all that needs to be said. But I will add more. The hosts were very kind and welcoming. There to dogs were also very welcoming and sweet. They would sit and let you pet them for as long as you wanted to. The 2 guineas were not as friendly. They ran off yelling every time you made a move. It was a wonderful quiet place to relax and recharge. Helped a little in the garden and took a beautiful walk in the woods which have some nicely defined paths to walk on. I teach online and was not able to get a good signal with my Verizon. Spotty signal for data, but they had a guest Wi-Fi that I was able to use for the bits that I needed. And I mustn't forget the Southern hospitality of delicious Apple spice muffins. My son said they tasted like fluffy Ginger snaps with a little Apple mixed in. absolutely delicious. Our 2nd evening we enjoyed a campfire talking about boondock in spots and other Carvey top. The time we left we almost felt like part of the family. This will be on our list to visit in the future.

Great People

Super nice couple. We had a great time talking about travels. They have been so many places and had good suggestions for us. They had a spot for our camper under their shelter, away from the wind for the night, which was perfect. Their property is large and they have cleared a nice path through the trees and around their pond. Next time, if it's not windy, we'll bring the marshmallows!

Great Stay at Hobby Farm

Hobby Farm is 16 acres of beautiful country living where we spent 1 night. Our hosts were so friendly up on our arrival and got us situated very quickly. They have a nice shady place to park and we were able to fill up our water tanks and they also had a 30 amp connection. We took a tour of the entire property which included visits from their two wonderful dogs, Buddy and Bella. They gave us fresh vegetables from their garden which speaks volumes of how gracious of hosts they are. We highly recommend a visit to Hobby Farm.

Awesome Texas hospitality

Beautiful piece of land that's easy to access. Shady, quiet and restful stop. The hosts were so generous and friendly. We had a wonderful time with them as they showed us their farm and also great conversation around the fire pit that evening. Would highly recommend.

Super helpful friendly couple. Beautiful sweet safe spot. I was feeling anxious traveling solo and made a last minute decision to go for Sherman. They were so accommodating. Looking forward to going back to the farm when I not making a mad dash x-c!

Amazing stay, amazing hosts!

We couldn't have asked for a more lovely couple to host us for our "last" boondockers welcome stay for a while.
We came as strangers and have left as firm friends!
We were treated to the best Texan hospitality, on their gorgeous property with the most adorable dogs!
We were privileged to be their first guests with BW, and urge anyone in the vicinity to go stay.
This is a hidden gem location just off the beaten track, and reaffirms our choice to use BW!
We will definitely be back to visit as good friends, particularly as we chatted non stop until the wee hours!
Thank you both so much for your hospitality and kindness, you're both the most genuine, lovely people!
(We will definitely be back for your amazing cooking haha!)
