Ray and I are retired in our late 60s. For many years, we've traveled the country in the winter months. We tent-camped, and spent the deep-cold months in far-south Everglades National Park. Last year was our first year in our 17 foot Casita.

I taught 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades for 25 years, and retired in 2000. After a quick interview (not necessarily in order of importance): Ray likes to drink. He hiked the Appalachian Trail, has bicycled all over the country, and owns a Dutch oven.

We both like to cook. And eat. After a couple of horrifying documentaries on factory farming and reading "The China Study" we're mostly vegetarian.

I was an active couch-surfer for years, and loved hosting people of all ages from all over the world. I just found Boondockers Welcome and am so excited about an analagous organization for RVers.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Ray is the original build-it and fix-it man. (He travels with tools!) Carpentry, plumbing, wiring, car mechanic, computer skills.

I just talk a lot. And love to cook. Have done a lot of antique furniture and house restoration.

RayLynn's Pets

Fiona is a 19 pound Jack Russel/dachund mix. She is a certified medical-alert service dog.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Walmarts, of course. National Forest primitive campsites. My mother's driveway!

RayLynn's Hometown

Montpelier is a charming Vermont city, fondly known as the capital village...population 10,000. Lots of good kayaking, camping, and hiking close by.

We travel in a new 17 foot Casita. What luxury (!) after years of setting up tents, and struggling to keep fresh ice in the cooler.
