Delightful Couple

Mstrshop1 were great guests ... We only had a few hours to talk but we covered a lot of miles while doing it ... They are on their way to THE ARK in Kentucky to meet up with some friends and do the tour ... We would welcome them back any time ... Shadow

Quick Correspondence

Chris was very flexible with us during our correspondence when we ended up arriving later than anticipated. Upon arrival, he generously helped us get hooked up to electric an water. He has a nice large area to park. Then, he gave us a little tour of his RV rigs and home business products he sells. He even gave us a fruit-fly catcher he made! We spent a quiet and peaceful night out in the country on his land, and continued our journeys the next morning. We're grateful for being allowed to stay the night!

The wide open spaces

We arrived on Monday and were warmly greeted by Chris and Elka. Because of some pretty heavy rain the night before, the grounds were extremely muddy. Chris quickly helped us get settled and got a rug to place at our entrance to prevent mud being tracked into the rig. The view was fantastic, being able to see for miles and we had a great flat spot to park. In no time we got a tour of some of the amazing things that Chris has created. Before we left on Wednesday morning, Chris put in a 50 amp electrical outlet. This is our 2nd experience at Boondockers Welcome and we are thrilled with the wonderful people we have met.

Wonderful host!

I made a last minute request for me and my traveling buddy with his own RV to stay and were graciously accommodated. Our host was warm and welcoming, everything one could want in a Boondockers Welcome host!

Perfect Overnight Stay

These lovely folks could not have been more gracious. Everything we needed they provided. Lovely farm setting and lake, plenty of room to turn around.

We ended up getting to mstrshop1's place when it was almost dark. He met us at the end of his drive so we would not pass it. Talk about home for a country boy it is a quiet place and heard a few roosters crowing the next morning. Our middle daughter evacuated from Rock Port, Tx.and oldest daughter, son in law and three grand girls house was flooded in Orange, Tx. so mstrsop1 gave me a surprise to share with my grand girls. We exchanged contact information and will definitely see each other again along the way. Thanks, and God Bless Carrol & Pam

Nice overnight stay

They live in a nice quiet spot not far from the small town of Lonoke. We parked our RV in the covered area where their RV usually sits and as it rained the night we were there it most welcome. They were friendly and welcoming and gave us some good travel tips for our onward journey. This was a very pleasant stop and we thank them for their hospitality.

Welcoming couple

They were a delighted couple to be around. Very friendly and shared information about the area. We were treated very well. We even got some fresh eggs from them.

Angels among us

I have to share a story with fellow boondock friends that has moved me in a dramatic manner. Yesterday as we were stopping at a rest area I suddenly lost the brakes on the coach. Thank goodness for being equipped with an exhaust brake! After coming to a stop, I sent a text to one of the many angels that surround Bob and me. My trusty mechanic Todd soothed my feathers and gave me sound advice so that I could limp on down the road to our planned overnight spot. This is where we met, yet, more angels in our life. Mstrshop1, our Boondockers Welcome hosts. They guided me into their property and immediately backed the coach into his master shop. Within 30 minutes he found that my brake line had broken and proceeded to run into town, buy the parts and fix it for us. I cannot express the feelings of gratitude that we feel today. If there was ever a doubt in anyone's mind that God does not exist, I am here to say "you are sadly mistaken". This journey we are on, called LIFE, has moved me emotionally on so many levels. We are blessed. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Chris and Elka Susan and Bob

Nice couple

I had a good and quiet day with this great couple. Mr C. helped me to set up the RV under a covered place where he usually leaves his own RV and even looked into my generator issues. Polite and pleasant people. Thank you so much!

What a great guy!

I was hoping to stay here, but mechanical problems prevented this. However, Chris went out of his way to help me find good service for my issue. He truly helped me a great deal. He certainly has a boondocking place in florida anytime he wants.

Thank you!

We were so pleased that mstrshop1 had a last minute spot for us to stay. We were just passing through for a minute, but they were so welcoming and kind. We appreciate their accommodations so much. Thank you.

Warm and wonderful people

They were so helpful and just a joy to visit with. We spent hours talking after we set up for the night. We hope to see them again on the road
