I grew up in a small town in Oregon with a big family and we are all very close. My wonderful kids are grown and creating a great life for themselves. I own a 26' Airstream Argosy travel trailer and love to tow it to new adventures around the US. I've already towed it from Oregon to NY and back, a couple of times and can't wait to hit the road again. My sister and I are both newly retired and have just started metal detecting and panning for gold. Hopefulluy in 2018, we'll be taking off across the US to hunt for buried treasure. :) Yes, we both are kids at heart and love the possibilities that life holds. Chances are we won't find any riches on this trip but the experience of seeing new things and meeting new people will add a sweeter and far more precious wealth to our lives than anything money could buy.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Hmmm..I don't have a lot of skills but love to balance checkbooks, do taxes, sew, make things (I consider myself a creative McGyver). Have duct tape, will travel. :) I'm also very curious and love to figure things out. I'm a people person and love to meet new faces and places.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Haven't done much but any Walmart, casino or truck stop. Those have always been good for me. I can't wait to discover more!

I have a 2018 16' Airstream Bambi. It's just the cutest! I tow it with my 2015 Toyota Highlander. Perfect combo!
