Do you know or have you hosted this user?

From SoCal and retired to the dark skies of SW New Mexico in 2008. I have a class C that I take to Idaho each summer. My house is on 10 acres which keeps me busy year round! When I can I ride my BMW R1200RT which is my other love. If we have a good night I will setup a telescope for viewing, all you have to do is twist my little finger ;-)

Skills & Expertise to Share

As an engineer I like to do my own maintenance on our CR-V (toad), Coachman RV, and my motorcycle. Have a small shop and large garage where I house my toys (MH, motorcycle, UTV, ...). Our 10 acres keep me busy year round.

Great View

This is a wonderful place to stay with a magnificent view of the surrounding mountains. The host is very helpful and willing to share his knowledge of the area.

Wonderful host! Spectacular views!

Our host was very nice, helpful and welcoming. We had a great time talking about traveling, family and shared a sunset. The stars were amazing and the views spectacular. Our host had great suggestions on what to see and do and the best way to get there. Would definitely come back!

Great Location and Host

Bob was extremely gracious and hospitable. Very generous allowing us to use both a 30amp hook up and his water. Views were incredible and at one point we could see nearly 100 miles to the South which were the mountains in Mexico. I look forward to staying again in the future if Bob will have us back. Night time star gazing was unbelievable. Thank you for sharing your lovely space with us.

Beautiful property, great RV site, wonderful host

'CdV on the Hill' is a beautiful property with expansive views from a magnificent hilltop setting. Easily accessible from the state highway. The RV site was ideal for us, has a strong cell signal. Historic Silver City is only a few miles away. It has an eclectic art community and plenty of services, restaurants and shopping nearby.

Bob is a kind, generous and accomodating host. Highly recommend staying here if you are in the area.

Reach out and touch the stars

We a wonderful visit we had with this host. Spot is beautiful with a view of the surrounding mountain ranges and spectacular sunsets. Enough star gazing to blow your mind.
We really enjoyed chatting with the host and hearing his stories.

Amazing host and views

Can’t say enough good about the host: he’s an interesting Astro photographer who has extraordinary telescopes for an amateur. More importantly he’s quite friendly and a great conversationalist!
And you have Unobstructed views of various mountain ranges.

Setting the bar on hospitality with mountain views

Our hosts really do set the bar on hospitality. From the moment we arrived, they were helping us in every way they could to make sure we were well situated and comfortable. They educated us on the surrounding mountain ranges and provided information on local attractions and history. We enjoyed their willingness to share their vast knowledge and enthusiasm on the native vegetation and wildlife thoughout our stay. As it worked out, we were able to extend our stay and we're so grateful that we did. The sunrises and sunsets are fantastic. We will definitely be back!

Beautiful Views

I enjoyed my stay very much! Bob showed me the natural features, mountain ranges, etc. nearby and made recommendations (excellent) for a route to the Gile Cliff Dwellings. Close to Silver City, which is well worth the visit. The parking and electric hookup was easy and it was super quiet at night. Gorgeous location, super hosts!

A great host and very accomodating!

Bob is a sweet guy that has a great house on a hill with expansive views. He was very accomodating with whatever we needed. We highly recommend staying with Bob. A good location to check out the area and the Gila Cliff Dwellings. The sunsets were amazing and the night sky was beautiful. He may even show you his awesome telescope!

Beautiful views!

Very friendly host, beautiful location, scenic neighbourhood, so much fun to explore. We really enjoyed our time at this location. Lots of beautiful scenery and many choices for hiking. Bob's description was spot-on, the paved drive is steep and curvy, but our truck and 30 foot trailer managed just fine. Turning at the top was a little tight but workable. I wouldn't want to do it with anything longer! Bob was helpful identifying places to check out.
