Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I am a healthy non-smoking 62-year-old male with strong old fashioned morals. Grew up in a machine/auto shop. I am well organized and extremely resourceful and creative. I have worked in many fields over the years. Have been a traveler/adventurer all my life. Ask me about my first adventurer on my trike at age 3, or on brothers Honda 750 at age 11.

Kim, my wife/sole mate for over 40 years, is 61. She is the best ever wife, copilot, cook and travel mate. We met on the CB Radio back in the early 70's. She loves Workamping and traveling as much as I. Kim excels in customer service positions and enjoys meeting new people. We have raised two wonderful girls, who are now grown and have kids of their own (six grandchildren). If we stay with you, please don't hesitate to ask me for help with any chores you might have around your place.
