I'm retired and recently bought a small 3.5 acre spot in a small town in the Texas Panhandle.
I enjoy motorcycles, ham radio, and meeting new people.
I am a generally 'handy' guy, able to work with tools and get things done.
I am currently doing some minor re-modeling work on the place I bought, so I'm likely to have spots of paint on my clothes...along with power tools and 2x4s laying around...so please pardon the mess!
I have a small 20 pound spaniel mix, adopted from a local shelter. She is my wonderful companion.
I also recently acquired a small kitten....this is gonna be interesting!
I love the desert around Quartzsite in the winter...lots of things to do and see, plus friendly people everywhere.
Living in Tulia Texas...a very small, friendly town about half way between Amarillo and Lubbock on I-27
We had a wonderful stay at this host's location and recommend him to everyone. He is charming and enjoyable to talk with; we enjoyed hearing about the history of his unique home. He made sure we found his place easily, giving us specific directions and even setting out orange cones for us to see his driveway. There are outdoor places to sit and eat. There's cattle, llama, and brahma in the pasture next door. We love this host's dog and wanted to take her home with us. Our host was helpful with the local sights, which included telling us (before we got to his place) to secure a reservation for the Palo Duro Canyon State Park. We would not have known to do so in advance and would have been turned away at the gate if it weren't for his thoughtfulness. We loved the canyons and had a great time hiking. Caprock Canyon is nearby also. This was a great, safe stay.
We had a great stay with Winford. He is exceptionally friendly, helpful & generous. We would highly recommend a stay here. If you do, pay close attention to the directions he gives you. They are superb and might save you having to backtrack.
My host and his pup were so welcoming! We had a great visit. And I had such a peaceful night. Definitely a great spot to stop after a long drive across Texas. I wish there had been a spot on the road to stop and take a pic of my hosts as they waved farewell. Such a perfect example of Texas hospitality.
We had a great visit with the host. He's very accomadating. We felt very welcomed. I hope Cami isn't still waiting for us. Would stay here again if in the area.
I wish they had a happier happy face for my opinion of this stay!!
I slept under the shadow of a 250ft radio tower on several acres of land over looking what this part of the USA is famous for...home home on the range where the deer and the antelope play. A most congenial, friendly and generous host. I think a lifelong friendship was made and for sure I'll visit him again. The stories, the laughs and the historical background to the area really made this stay special. He made a great effort to make sure I found him with bight orange pylons and then even led me out this morning to make sure I got on the right road. An over the top host who I would highly recommend to any one. Thanks Winford! Benji said thanks too!
If you are looking for a quaint place and enjoy visiting with owner then this is the place for you.Nothing fancy but is honest and Winford is well versed and can talk as wide a range of subjects as I have encountered. Very relaxing evening visiting on front porch star gazing sharing a cool beer. We will stop again.
We enjoyed meeting and getting to know the host. He's got a sweet setup. It's level, has hookups and very peaceful. We look forward to staying again.
