This location is in a very, very, very small town in the eastern plains of Colorado. The RV spots are on the location of an old motel. The area is clean, although some weeds/stickers during certain times of year. The motel is abandoned, but is cool and funky. There is NOTHING in town to buy, other than stamps at the post office. But, it is a wonderful little community that is nice to stay for the night or a week. Note that this is private property, and permission is needed to park here. Suggested Local Attractions:My son and I have a small pig farm close by, so if you are feeling the want to feed some pigs, or fix some fence, or just visit the farm, let me know. You might get a little smelly, but the pigs won't mind :)

Fulltime traveler - disguised as a web developer. Details: I started fulltiming in December of 2006. It has changed a lot over the years, which is what I enjoy about the lifestyle. I enjoy finding places where I can take my Jeep out on adventures, go hiking, enjoy the outdoors, and still have a good internet connection. I also spend time in the eastern plains of Colorado on my son's farm. I enjoy working with the pigs, and spending time out in rural Colorado. Home Town: Originally from San Jose, California Favorite Boondocking Locations: Southern Utah, Arizona, Southern California, Colorado Skills or Expertise to Share: I work as a web programmer, specializing in small, specialty built database applications. I am also pretty handy around the RV, home, and farm.

    I spend a lot of time wandering through small town midwest, and Cope, the smallest yet. Although Nomadr was away, he kindly let me stay. I was reminded of the Jimmy Buffet song, Ringling, Ringling: "Ringling, Ringling Slippin' away Only forty people, livin' there today Streets are dusty and the bank has been torn down It's a dyin' little town" HOWEVER... Buffalo Bruce, owner of the new Buffalo's Last Stand says he is the only member of the Cope Urban renewal committee. His store is simple and neat with 1000's of buffalo items, from curios to expensive artwork. BB is an interesting character with a huge amount of history. We spent several hours talking. Well worth the overnight by the abandoned 50's motel.

    Convenient, easy to find, level spot if you are traveling US 36. Host was communicative.

    We are glad we took the time to drive up to Cope to stay. It is next to an abandoned motel that is scary looking and if I were solo, I could not have stayed BUT with two of us, it was cool and quirky, we loved it! Plenty of level ground to park on, peaceful except occasional car driving by. Wish we could have stayed a few more hours to possibly meet our host and walk around the town. Do recommend and would come back.

    We stayed for one night in Cope,CO. There is not many options on 70 WEST after about Hayes, KS. So happy to find a Boondockers Welcome stop available. The site was easy to find with great directions. Cope is a town that once thrived on the railroad and US 36. It is pretty quiet now. However, there is a Little Free Library kiosk outside the Cope Community Church, a Memorial Park and an old phone booth with the phone still in it! The phone is not connect and the wasps have made the booth home. Haven't see one of those in a long time. We met Nomadr's son and he was a super guy. Raises hogs among other talents.We had a long chat about the old motel and cafe and its history. Happy we stopped and happy for the conversation and a glimpse into the past of a town on the CO plains.

    I had to laugh a little bit, as I thought about this location being a quiet Oasis. However, it is about 10 miles the other side of absolutely nowhere! For us it was absolutely perfect. Kevin and his son had electrical power available for us and we were able to plug in. It was certainly a quiet Town very peaceful. Thanks again for providing the location.
