We would be happy to have LarryinID back anytime. Thanks for visiting us :)
LarryinID was very pleasant to host. He and his fiancé kept mainly to themselves, and we would have never even known that they had a dog (German Shepherd) with them. Very quiet and respectful. We would be happy to have them stay with us again.
I'm sure I already left a reference for Larry. He has a nice off-street location surrounded by beautiful views of the area. It is 21 miles from Boise, so be prepared for groceries and gas before heading up there. Larry was very generous, and he and his new bride invited me in for a meal my first night there while we watched the Boise football team get beat by the Utah team. Larry was very informative about places to visit, hike, etc. You won't regret staying here.
The fall colors were spectacular driving up the canyon. Our hosts greeted us warmly and hooked us up. We spent a delightfully quiet evening.
We have travelled beautiful America over our many years and this spot is one of the best. Wonderful hosts and a beautiful area.
I arrived late, just after sundown, after a grueling day of snow and a breakdown of my tow-dolly. Larry came out to greet me and show me the options for parking my RV. After I parked it, he came out and invited me in to enjoy a hot meal, his new wife, LeeAnne, had cooked up. They had only been married for two weeks and looked very happy together. They also served me red wine and a dessert for a treat. They invited me to stay awhile and watch the Boise-Utah football game. They also have a beautiful rescue German Shepard named Elsa the got along well with Sadie.
The next day I spent seeing all the interesting history of the area. Sadie and I hiked a small segment of the Oregon trail, walked around and visited the Lucky Peak State Park, dam and reservoir area. Quite a lot of history there.
It is quite a distance from Boise and the main thoroughfare, but if you like quiet and solitude, this is a lovely spot to visit.
This is our first BW stay and we are now hooked! Our hosts were gracious and friendly and fun to chat with! The location is amazing. We love to be a little off the beaten path, so this was perfect. We are now definitely looking at becoming hosts ourselves. Thank you so much!
Larry was a wonderful host! Although he was traveling while we were parked at his property, he made sure to stay in touch and was very helpful. He has everything you need to hook up and the property itself is worth boondocking for a night. Gorgeous views and only 30 minutes to the city proper.
Larry is a great host. An overnight is not enough time to talk with Larry. Wish we would have taken more time to locate on a map his favorite local camping spots.
We were honoured to learn we were Larry’s first guests, and feel sure there will be many more: He has a wonderful place, great and beautiful location, and kind services on offer. We even enjoyed wildlife from the small amount of time we were there – lizards, quail, osprey nearby and a beautiful Oriole bird. Meanwhile Larry is a wonderful Boondocker member, giving all the info you want, communicating quickly (and thanks for accepting our short notice request!) and offering a great wealth of ‘tourist info’ for the area too! This is a great jumping off point for many beautiful areas to visit.
