I do travel, so it is important to contact me to secure timing. When i travel, I have an adult daughter at the house who will need to agree to accommodate.

Access Road Conditions

Off main highway, about 1-1/2 miles. No access problems, except during bad weather, snow, etc.

Site Description

I have a large driveway at my home in Reno, most likely available for up to 25-30 feet. 30 amp hookup and water is available. I would not want to have long term boondockers, possibly two/three days at a time. I would have to put my 25-ft RV in the street for duration, so I would want to limit availability. ONe pet would be okay, so long as it is kept on leash and not left in the vehicle unattended. This spot would be unavailable during periods of snow and ice, basically November through February, although some periods might be clear, all depends on weather, as I am at 5K feet.

Suggested Local Attractions

Lake Tahoe, summer sports on lake, winter skiing, boarding. Plenty of casino,s. Hot August Nights, Rib Cookoff, Air Races in early Sept, wine walk in downtown third Sat of each month, kayaking on the river, street vibrations for motorcycle enthusiasts, Virginia City events, Reno Aces baseball in fab new stadium.

About skibabe1

In A Few Words...

64 yr old female, usually travel solo. Workamper during summer months. 25 ft. Winnebago View, no toad.

A Little More Detail

retired banker, workamping in summer months. Have made six
cross country trips. My husband and I had planned to travel after I retired, but he passed away in 2009, and I am determined to carry on. Live in Reno, have an adult daughter who lives in and maintains my 1/3 acre property just south of Reno and 45 minutes from Lake Tahoe. Reno, NV, is a well kept secret, with stunning beauty and no shortage of activities. Just four hours too from San Francisco Bay area.

Personally, I love birding, cooking, asphalt cruising, jetskiing, sailing, football and wine. I love being retired, but cannot sit still, so I look for reasons to travel the country. I love wine, and often utilize Harvest Host as well.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Harvest Host sites. Also stay in state parks when possible. Have also taken advantage of several fellow boondockers' hospitality.

skibabe1's Pets

I do not travel with them much, but I have two shelter dogs at my home. My adult daughter keeps them happy while I am gone, and they have a large backyard to chase the birds, squirrels and rabbits. They bark at the wild horses that visit the neighborhood (and my front lawn) almost daily.

skibabe1's Rig

25 ft. Winnebago View, 2007, Class C. One slide out, not absolutely necessary for a boondock. I do not tow a vehicle, as this one goes almost anywhere with ease. I do not travel far in winter.

We stayed for a night last week and were greeted by skibabe1's daughter, who was super nice and helpful in recommending trails near Lake Tahoe. It was really easy to find, park and get hooked up. All around great stay!
