Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We are a retired couple living in far western Colorado during the Summer months, and southern Arizona during the Winters. Our little unincorporated community is known as Egnar or Range spelled backwards. The people who live in this area are affectionally known as Egnarts, you can take the time to spell it backwards. I was designated UNofficial Mayor of Egnar by a local farmer just prior to his death in a auto/tractor accident. The name has stuck with me.

We are Low drama, friendly and accommodating, our chief complaint is: No one wants to leave. Susan is more than willing to have an afternoon beer or toddy with friends. I quit drinking 30 years ago, but may share a home grown cookie with anyone who's 420 friendly. We are non smoking and non vaping individuals.

Skills & Expertise to Share

We have a welder and a decent shop to work out of, but don't expect my personal expertise to cover RV repairs. Verizon is good and solid, AT&T is sketchy, the rest may not get a signal.

WalterandSusan's Pets

Mr Peanut is still with us in spirit and physically sits in his Urn overlooking our daily lives. We dearly miss him.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Camp Trump, Ogilby, California.
The Goose Necks State Park, Utah.
Hatchet Resort, Hatchet, Wyoming.

WalterandSusan's Hometown

We live on 320 acres, of which 115 acres are in organic wheat production. At anytime during the week you may see Elk, Deer, Bears, Mountain Lions, Fox, Bobcats, and myriads of birds. The main road, H1, is good black top. Our 450 foot driveway leaves a bit to be desired, but it's not that bad. We've had 45 foot rigs park in front of the house, so no worries about access. There are currently two 30 amp plugins available, one has full hookups, but is harder to reach as it requires your rig to be backed up a small hill; Low clearance vehicles will not fit. Our home is a 4,000 sqft, story and a half metal building, which was designed and built by US over the course of 15 years. Currently, we are grid tied. There are 28 solar panels on the shop roof, they supply all our annual power needs. We followed the LEED certification guidelines and built a super insulated, direct passive solar, geothermally heated home. Since moving in full time, back in 2014, we have not had a power bill. I'm working on backup batteries and a generator. Egnar is somewhat centrally located between Mesa Verde National Park 60 miles to the SE, and the National Parks of Moab, Utah 65 miles to the North. Fun fact: We live in San Miguel County an area of 1288 square miles. Dolores County, to the south, covers 1068 square miles. A combined total area of 2356 square miles. Neither county has a traffic signal. Imagine that.

Fabulous hosts, hospitality would make a southern blush. Try to allow a couple of days if you can. This delightful couple will make you feel like family. They have such a beautiful place and have truly accomplished living the dream. We’ll definitely make a trip to stay in the future. Thanks for everything.

More than gracious hosts

We stayed with these amazing hosts for one night while traveling through Colorado. Their rural location provides peace and quiet with spectacular views of rolling Colorado farmlands. The host’s site description is very accurate. We would definitely stay again! Many thanks to our hosts.

Great Experience!

I very much enjoyed my stay at Egnar. The scenery was great and the hosts were very welcoming. They even invited me to come out to a local venue to hear live music! Highly recommended!

Had a Great Time

Hosts went out of the way to welcome you to their home and provide you with everything you may need to feel like you were at home. From a tour of their SMART Home and an impromptu picnic with the neighbors, everything was great. Hope to come back and visit them in the future.

Great stay, sorry we couldn’t stay another day..

Great stay, sorry we couldn’t stay another day due to us having to get home. Version is solid, AT&T is spotty. We had a wonderful time visiting and chatting. Went to see the canyon behind their property. It was amazing. Enjoy a treat and learned about their zero energy home. We will be back to enjoy another visit.

Level site with hookups. Easy to find and just a lovely stay.

Great experience

What a wonderful time we had with Walter and Susan. It was beyond our expectations as they shared their Smart Home with us as well as their personal stories. Took us on a tour of the area which was beyond belief. We feel we have made great friends and highly recommend a stay there.
