Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We are a retired couple - originally from Michigan and Western New York, who have spent most of our working years either overseas or in Maryland. We sold our Maryland home, changed our domicile to South Dakota and bought our home on wheels in May 2017. We roam all over the country according to our whims and the weather, chasing 75 degrees on the thermometer. We hope to visit as much of the United States and Canada as we can before we "settle down".

We have two adult children, of whom we are quite proud. They are doing well and following their plans to independent life.

Skills & Expertise to Share

We are fairly computer-literate and love to read. John is a musician and handy with tools. Pat is a hobby genealogist and a good researcher. She also likes gardening.

JohnAndPat's Pets

Yes, we have an 8-year-old diabetic yellow tabby cat. She is adjusting to our mobile lifestyle.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

We haven't actually boondocked yet. We base out of Rapid City, South Dakota and return there twice a year for doctors' appointments. Our children are in Maryland, but we also have relatives in Maine, Pennsylvania, New York, Kentucky, Tennessee, Colorado, and Florida.

JohnAndPat's Hometown

Rapid City, South Dakota - near the Black Hills, the Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse monuments, Custer State Park, the Badlands and a slew of other wonderful places to visit.
