Originally from Mississippi, we have been living in north Texas since 1977.
Hence our handle, NorthTexsippians.
We started RV'ing around 1993 with a (very) used popup camper with no air conditioning.
We are now on our third travel trailer.
Our longest time on the road has been one month.
No pets for now.
Have only done a little boondocking so far.
But we would like to try it more.
With hookups, have been from the Texas Hill Country to Colorado to the Great Smoky Mountains, and lots of places in between.
2008 Cougar travel trailer Model 29FKS towed by a 2010 Ford F150. About 29 feet plus the tongue. This photo is from it's first outing in the fall of 2008 at Cooper Lake State Park.
We met these guests after short notice and are glad we did not miss their visit. We enjoyed them very much and look forward to our next visit.
What a lovely, peaceful place to park your rig. And Frank and Jean are so thoughtful. Because it had been raining so much, the grass under our RV steps was muddy, so Frank told us Jean said to put a rug down. My husband said it wouldn't really be necessary, and Frank said, "My wife said to, so it's going to happen." LOL!
Stayed 2 nights and all was well. The Texsippians gave us some good pointers on local restaurant and peek traffic times. I needed a 30amp extension cord and I borrowed theirs. Enjoyed and appreciate it very much hope to see ya again!
P.S Bought my own cord where else but Camping World (lol)
Very upscale and safe neighborhood. They were very accommodating to me and my dog, and provided electrical and water. The spot was quiet and lovely. They offered to let me stay a few more nights but I had to venture south of Dallas and did not want to go back through that traffic! Overall great place to rest your head.
This was our first time boon-docking and it was a great experience. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful as it was our first time docking and we needed some help with the driveway (experienced drivers will be completely fine). They were very patient as our arrival time changed from 2pm to almost 9pm due to us not understanding trailer travel time and coming from North Austin as well. We didn't stay as our brother lives just 15 mins away in Denton but they did offer all kinds of amenities and we would've loved to be able to stay and get to chat with them longer. Also replied within the day for us and since we were a short notice arrival, this was very nice.
The neighborhood is great and very calm. It was a pleasure to spend the night there after the hectic Dallas traffic. NorthTexippians is very knowledgeable of the erea and the kids loved it.
I highly recommend this host.
Thank you so much for having us.
They were great, allowed me to Boondock on short notice and the site was in a great area. Plenty of room and it couldn't of gone better. Thank you again, and I highly recommend.
It felt like home... the warmth and welcome of our fellow Boondockers NorthTexsippians
was refreshing and we are grate for the respite we found with you. Truly looking forward to the opportunity to reciprocate. Definitely recommended hosts.
This was my first Boondockers Welcome stay and it was THE most pleasant experience. Frank met me when I drove up and showed me the space, which was perfect. Their hospitality and kindness were the best. The spot was in a safe, beautiful area and quiet all night. I hope one day I can repay the kindness by hosting them at my place. They will always be welcome. So, in summary, highly recommended!
This was a great spot! The neighborhood was very quiet and the spot was spacious and private. They were very accommodating and very friendly! Frank shared some stories and a photography book with us which we really enjoyed. If you are looking to stay in a more rural quiet neighborhood this is the spot for it!
We had a lovely two days with Frank and Jean sitting on their porch whilst the rain poured down. What a lovely couple and a great location. So very quiet and green. Thanks.
Frank and Jean were extremely friendly and kind, even though I had mechanical problems and I ended up staying Way longer than I intended to. Definitely a nice, quiet neighborhood but convenient to shopping and services. Lots of great conversation too. Can't ever thank them enough.
The entire neighborhood is so beautiful and quiet. There are so many stars (and sometimes deer :-0) at night. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Beautiful property and fabulous people!
Met Frank, and he was extremely friendly and helpful. He has a beautiful place that is in a very quiet suburban development. Had a great time, and felt blessed to make a new friend. Hope to have the opportunity to return the favor by staying on my property in Mt. Pleasant when it is finished.
What a great place to stop and relax for a bit. Frank and Jean were wonderful to let us come visit even though they themselves were trying to get ready for a trip. Sitting on the front porch relaxing with them with a view of the lake was the highlight of our time with them. Convenient to both Dallas and Fort Worth, yet a quiet neighborhood on a lake is a perfect setting.
Beautiful, quite spot to camp, very friendly folks, went above and beyond, lots of helpful info on places to visit in Texas.
