Delightful lady

Pughpm was a delightful guest. She arrived on a very windy afternoon and went exploring. When she returned she invited me and my other boondockers over for a chat.
We shared coffee the next morning and that afternoon I took her to San Lorenzo canyon for some birding.
We stopped at BeeChama Honey for some delicious desert wildflower honey which she shared with me.
She also shared some delicious Chile Rellenos she picked up along her journey.
My other boondocker did a temporary fix to a problem with the valve stems on her rear tires that should get her where she is going safely.
I wish her happy and safe travels and welcome her back anytime.

This lady can do just about anything!

We enjoyed meeting and getting to know Pughpm. Our time spent together was during the COVID-19 virus and we were pleased we could offer her a place to stay when she needed one. We had some interesting conversations and she even helped us out by chopping down a few weeds because she needed to have something to do. You're in for a treat if she stays with you!

So much fun!

Here is a terrific host, with a lot of cross country boondocking experience herself. The neighborhood is pretty quiet, and hardly any street noise. Convenient to great Phoenix sights too

Great location and great company!

Pughpm’s BW is located near tons of great attractions like The Botanical Gardens, The Phoenix Zoo, and Camelback Mountain. The light rail is only a mile away in case you need to get across town for little cost. The parking is street side and level. She has been so accommodating with everything including offering 15amp electricity and keeping great company as we watch the sunset for a happy hour. She even invited us to come with her to the gardens! This is not your average BW host. It feels like we have known her our whole lives! We cannot say enough great things about pughpm and her hospitality. Thank you for the traveling tips and amazing stay!

What a wonderful stay..

My van fit perfectly in the spot described. The host was very busy but took a break to take me to the desert gardens on free day. I got a tour and lots of information about desert plants. Thank you so much boondockers welcome and a big huge appreciative thank you to this host.

Very good close to downtown

Pughpm, our host, was very charming and made our visit a total 10. 115 cord and water available.
The place is only about 5 miles to downtown. We were attending an event there so the place was perfect for it.

Thanks a lot for all the tips and info provided.
