Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We've owned our own company, worked for others, and are now working together as independent consultants. We also work as regional coordinators for a high school exchange program, placing international exchange students in American host families for a semester or academic year and counseling the students and families through the experience. We try to get out in our RV with our two German Shepherd "children" as often as we can. We have two sons, ages 25 and 23. One lives in Washington, DC, and is fast becoming a political junkie. Our younger son is a senior at the Univ. of Oregon. We also count a dozen former exchange students from around the world as our international children.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Some computer skills, know a lot about economic and political issues, have worked with teenagers for a number of years. Mark is a great cook!

LauraandMark's Pets

2 beautiful German Shepherds. They love the RV!

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Along an ocean or river ... or somewhere else with a view. But we know that's not always possible! We like to go places where we can walk or hike.

LauraandMark's Hometown

Portland, Oregon -- at least it's been "home" for the past 25 years.
