Do you know or have you hosted this user?

My wife is a well known French Canadian visual artist whose work is in the National Gallery of Canada, Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec (BAnQ), Museum of Modern Art (NYC), Newberry Library (Chicago), and hundreds of museums, galleries, and private collections. Louise works in the genre of artists' books (books that are art pieces).

I spent 35+ years in business as an entrepreneur, manager, and executive in the management and systems consulting field. At the age of 50, I was invited into McGill University (Montreal, QC), to undertake my PhD. I graduated 7 years later with a PhD in Knowledge Management. [Yes--seven years! I was getting old and slow back then!]

I have facilitated knowledge acquisition for learners (students) through my undergraduate, graduate and PhD courses in business schools and library and information science schools. I am a disruptive educator who uses Game-Based Learning as an educational technique for learning.

Originally from the Ottawa, ON--Gatineau, QC region of Canada, we have been living and working in the USA for the last 15 years. We recently chose to sell our home in Boise, ID, and become full-time RVers with our small tear drop trailer, a 12-ft. Littleguy T@B. My wife and I have been on the road of the last 11 months in our small T@B trailer. The very first blog post of our new nomadic lifestyle, our Incessant Journey: http://louiselevergneux.com/incessant-journey/ can be viewed with the secret password: putt-putt

We recently participated with RVLove | Marc & Julie Bennett in the creation of a video related to the challenges of toilets within RVs:

We appear about 15 min. into the video.

We enjoy learning from others about their journeys with RVing.

Great Guests!

M&L were an enjoyable couple. They communicated well before, during, and after their visit. Good conversation over dessert. Enjoyed hearing about their interesting lives and travels. They are welcome back anytime. Wishing them well as they transition to a larger rolling home.

Great couple welcome back anytime.

These are two very nice people to have around. I didn't even know they were here. I would host them again anytime they needed it. So if they reach out to stay I would recommend them.

Fascinating!

Loved hearing their story. What great guests. Would like to see more of Louise’s art and hear more of Michael’s life experiences. Cecil hardly let him get a word in. Highly recommend them as guests.

Great Guests

Michael & Louise were fantastic Boondockers to host. Very considerate guests and made sure we knew exactly when they would be arriving. We very much enjoyed sitting on our deck sharing stories with each other and having a bottle of wine. We would welcome these two wonderful people back to stay anytime.

Nice Couple

We had a nice visit and enjoyed being able to host this very friendly couple. We only wish our weather during their stay was more pleasant, but they took it in stride arriving with 30 knot winds that changed to 6 inches of spring snow the next morning. We are glad to recommend them to any host. Your life will be richer as was ours to meet them. We wish them safe travels.

Wondeful Couple

I hosted Michael and Louise for four days in December. Both are great conversationalist , he from academia, and Louise's art is beautiful, unique and intelligent. She gave me a gift sample of her creativity. I was sad to see them leave in their little teardrop trailer. They are most welcome to return anytime.

Lovely couple!

M & L were perfect guests...they communicated their arrival and departure times well, left the site in perfect condition and were friendly, but not imposing :-). We were midst of the chaos of "home maintenance mode" ... plumbers and pest control knocking on the door and milling around the house inside and out, contractors texting and calling, etc., When they rang the doorbell to say goodbye, we took a much-needed breather and invited them in for a cup of coffee. I'm so glad we hit the pause button long enough to learn more about this interesting couple! I feel like we have new friends! I/we hated to see them go, but will remember them fondly each time we look at the unique and lovely gift they left with us. It so happened to be perfect for my and my partners interests. If ever you have occasion to host M & L, I am sure you will find them as lovely as we do/did!
