You may shelter in the residence walk-in basement during tornado warnings. This will be discussed with you at set-up. Guest Wi-fi is weak but password will be provided. Please minimize video streaming as possible. Hours for arrival and departure will be set upon request acceptance. Up to two guest vehicles may park in the parking area. Short-wheel-based rigs maybe able to pull in and do a u-turn depending on what vehicles are here. Because "backing in" is required, "toads" will connect and disconnect in the street and park in the parking area. RV dumping available but requires use of my 50' foot hose unless you have one that long. This will be discussed at set-up. NOTE: The 50-amp outlet provided is WIRED AND BREAKER-PROTECTED FOR 20-AMPS ONLY per hot leg (there are two hot legs, just like a 50-amp connection). 20 amp service will operate a single A/C and charger/converter on a single leg "IF" refrigerator and water heater are on propane and other hi-amperage appliances (microwaves, electric heaters, hair dryers, etc.) are not utilized at the same time as the a/c on a single hot leg. ASK if you don't understand this terminology. If two simultaneous guest units, only 15 amp service is available for the second unit. The breakers for the RV outlets are in a locked outbuilding requiring host to access or guest orientation. If you are using A/C or resistance heating, or electric water heater AND staying MORE than one NIGHT, a $5 gratuity (one-time only, not per night) for electricity is suggested but NOT REQUIRED. Fresh water can be filled but requires use of my 150' garden hose which is not practical to leave connected. Fresh water fills and dump facility NOT AVAILABLE during periods of possible sub-freezing temperatures (normally mid-November to late March). No discharge of fireworks. No discharge of firearms on property except with Host supervision within my indoor range (pistol calibers only). ATV's may use the back yard. We may curtail operations if noise or unsafe operation is an issue. NOTE TO PREVIOUS GUESTS ONLY.... if you need dates you want that are blocked on our calendar, send a text, or email (not a BW message) with details. Might be able to make it work "remotely" with no amenities.
Access Road Conditions: All paved two-lane. 3.5 miles from Interstate 49 (35 mph) and 3.2 miles from MO 291 (45 mph, drops to 35 mph at Prairie Lane). . Reasonable "backing" skills required, pull-thru not available except possibly for units under 25' if no other RV's are parked already. Ask host for assistance if not comfortable while backing. Trees are trimmed to about 14' to clear our RV's 12'6" clearance. 24' wide driveway is asphalt. The asphalt is a little thin right above the "ditch whistle" so try to keep vehicle tires at least 12" from those edges. It's deep everywhere else so no problem if you get a wheel off in the grass or gravel. Campsites and parking area are well-drained gravel with motion sensitive lighting at night from outbuilding. See arrival instructions when registered for suggested routes to avoid tight turns for trailers and long-wheel base motorhomes. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: Gravel parking adjacent to RV site or in front of RV. Due to the slight front to rear grade of the parking area, trailers will normally will need to disconnect in order to be able to drop the front end low enough to level easily or automatically. You can probably stay connected and still be withing the 3 degree maximum angle needed for a gas refrigerator to function but you will be sitting front high. Access to all parking is a minimum of 24' wide.

It’s always great to make a new friend. Dick is a great host, makes you feel so welcome and provides great information on the KC area. Lots of room to park in a lovely quiet area. If he will have us we will be back 😎.

Hosts are super kind and helpful! He met us up the road to guide us to the driveway and gave great instructions on how to get in without issues. Provided detailed guide on nearby attractions which helped us plan our day in Kansas City. Provided electric hookup and has water if needed. Nice, quiet neighborhood with plenty of space to get in/out. Would definitely stay here again!

The host was super kind and helpful. We appreciated the electric hookup so we could run a space heater at night since the temperature had dropped into the upper 20's.
