There’s an old saying that “I showed up as a stranger and left as a friend.” Even though I had never met our host (Nomadr) before, our experience visiting him was that we showed as friends and left as lifetime friends.
Cope Colorado is a very very small unincorporated farming-based community with a population of 169 (as of 2014). He helps his son run a pig farm there.
Our boondocking spot was about a mile away from the pig farm on property that has been in the family for generations. They were there to greet us, recommended the best spot to drop the rig, and gave us the lay of the land. I asked about his pig farm and the next day he picked us up to see the whole operation during feeding time. We loved it.
The Verizon signal was excellent with a nearby tower. We were able to work during our stay no problem. I particularly enjoyed watching the big rig trucks in all shapes and sizes rolling past during the day. Nighttime was pretty darn quiet.
Our host made time to come visit with us during our stay and even invited us over for some BBQ pork and fresh vegetables. Yummmm.
He is a pioneer in the full-timer community as the founder of NuRVers whom Technomadia described as a community of alternative minded ‘young at heart RVers’. Indeed, NuRVers.com began before Facebook and served as an early online meeting place for the more Internet based generation of full-timers. He also created an online system for running your Pig farm business more efficiently.
If you are looking to take the road less traveled away from the Interstate through northern Colorado, I highly recommend this little slice of heaven.
