She is a Psychatric Nurse teaching at a local College. Rates are reasonable if you need a little couseling! :) He is a manufacturing engineer / lean & manufacturing consultant. I've made or worked on everything from depleted Uranium penetrators to jet engines to locomotives to compressors to diapers and dryer sheets. Held most every manufacturing job there is up to VP. Managed a product development group for 10 years and started up and managed one of the only Manufacturing Engineering Development labs in the country. Three great (grown) kids - all on their own. Empty nesters - YES!!

We love the West and plan to spend most of the time we have left exploring all the National Parks, +++ When I figure out how to rig up pontoons on the Roadtrek, we're also going to spend a lot of time in Hawaii. We've been there many times - courtesy of Delta's frequent flier miles - and absolutely love the islands! Hanalei and Haleakala are two places everyone should put on their bucket list.

She likes to sew, he likes to take pictures of anything that will hold still. We both enjoy computers, so figuring out how to keep "connected" while on the road is the next big assignment.

Skills & Expertise to Share

He is pretty mechanically inclined. Given time, can fix most anything. A skill acquired becasue I'm too cheap to pay someone to do something I can do. Also a reasonable capable photographer and getting good at Photoshop. She is great at crocheting and sewing.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Anyplace with mountains, waterfalls, canyons and/or cliffs (like Monument Valley and Canyon DeChelley)

Just bought a used 2006 Roadtrek Versatile 210 (Class B) from a sweet 85 year old lady in Virginia. It's like new but without the dealer markup! I'm still not sure how the shower part is going to work out, but we're gonna find out.
