Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Enjoying life with hubby. The summer of 2018 We were campground hosts for the Olympic National Park in Washington State. We have spent the last four winters near Blythe, California where Sara volunteers. We love nature and seeing wild animals.
We like the quiet and can sometimes seem like hermits staying to ourselves. We have been full-timers for almost four years as our only home is on wheels. We are enjoying the western United States and do not expect to drive back across the Mississippi. We are from Pennsylvania. We are grandparents and have four grandchildren.

Skills & Expertise to Share

John is a retired Park Ranger. He has also done drywall and painting.
Sara has taught college, managed group homes and vocational settings for people with disabilities, plays the organ, and has been a trainer.

The Degenhardts's Hometown

We are always traveling! Our hats are in our motorhome. We have spent our last four winters in Blythe, California volunteering at the campground, but that's as permanent as it gets for us!

A short stay

It was nice to have the family stay for one night and they are welcome to come and stay longer. It was very nice talking to both when we have the time.
