Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Retired Emergency Room Registered Nurse for 25 years; recently widowed; 2 caring adult sons; 2 WONDERFUL daughters-in-law and 2 BRILLIANT grandchildren (grandmothers are permitted to brag, aren't they?)

Camper 50+years,...not quite a 'Glamper' , but admit to wanting to feel somewhat comfortable...i.e. .cutting brush to make myself some shelter is NOT my thing!
Owning a RoadTrek longtime dream finally realized last year, and am committed to 'getting my $$$ out of her' as long as I am able. (before the constabulary get wise and pull my licence for speeding. Not likely to be an issue with my RoadTrek, b/c of her age.) By self-admission, not mechanically savvy...will be open to advice/suggestions from other RoadTrek owners.
Will be mostly travelling with my dear friend and supportive cousin whom I love dearly, and who tolerates my foibles. ;o)

Skills & Expertise to Share

Have attained that age we seniors love, and the younger folk detest. 'What's that' you ask? We've seen, done experienced a lot in our many years, and so can 'wax eloquent' on most anything (albeit perhaps, not always accurately ;o)
-'Once a nurse, always a nurse" happy to give rudimentary advice within my realm of "ancient' expertise.
-several years caregiver to my Alzheimer-afflicted husband with some tips to share with whomever might need
-At sporadic times as years wear on, hobbies include reading, watercolour painting (NOT for sale but for my relaxation only) sewing, dog training, cross stitch, knitting, was 'intermediate' skier, cruising the world, cooking, EATING, walking/hiking
-Not mechanically inclined admittedly, but willing to jimmy-rig/tackle anything not physically impossible, with what's at hand.

countrycousins's Pets

Yep...will always be a lover of Irish Setters, am currently fortunate to share the companionship with my 6th, a 14 yr old female. I DO bring her camping with us, but won't subject her to the cramped quarters of the RT for extended road tours. Have two Red Factor canaries......likewise staying at home whilst I travel AND 3 dumb goldfish that weren't supposed to survive more than a month, but are too DUMB to do the right thing.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Just signed up for Boondockers, so will add this as experience grows.

countrycousins's Hometown

Born and raised in Sudbury, Northern Ontario; fairly recently re-located to Stratford, Southern Ontario upon placing my dear husband in the safety of secure care/memory loss care closer to our sons.. A necessary move, although traumatic, it has been good to re-connect consistently with family in this area.
