Age:

65+

Craft artist husband and retired bookkeeper wife Details: My husband is a talented mixed media artist that makes lamps, glass murals, wooden furniture and copper sculpture. I am retired after 50 years working in museums, libraries, banks and offices. My husband's hobby is building wooden boats. I like to watch birds, write, read and research genealogy. Home Town: We live in the country just a few miles from the Atlantic Ocean. The towns near us on the coast are popular resort towns. Inland is farmland used for raising chickens, corn and soybean. Favorite Boondocking Locations: We bought our trailer 2 years ago and so far we have made a 7-week trip to west coast, a 4-week trip to Florida and Louisiana, week-long trips to Connecticut and North Carolina. We have put over 16,000 miles on her and keep making small improvements between trips. We enjoy nature, museums, visiting relatives and wineries and just plain finding out-of-the-way places. Skills or Expertise to Share: My husband is an extremely talented carpenter and knows his way around repairing machines and miscellaneous tools. My skills tend to be in area of writing and doing research. And I really can clean stuff.

    Les communications avec Grant ont été simples et claires. Il m'a indiqué des endroits à visiter dans les environs et m'a fourni les coordonées de commerces pour répondre à un besoin. La conversation autour du feu a été agréable. Le terrain est bien boisé mais un gros VR pourrait avoir de la difficulté à manoeuvrer à travers les arbres.

    Stayed here for two nights during a busy time for the hosts. Lynn called to be sure I was comfortable arriving if they weren't there and sent me great information about where to park. Our schedules didn't overlap enough to meet in person though she checked in each day and I felt well taken care of!

    I stayed here for two nights and it was a fantastic stay! Such a genuinely kind and sweet couple with many stories to tell, I had a hard time leaving. The birds in the morning are magical, and I am so grateful they shared their little slice of heaven - it is a gorgeous spot in the woods and I slept amazingly well. GPS took me right to it, and minding the turns access was easy. Highly recommend! Amazing people, gorgeous location! Thank you for your kindness! Until we meet again!
