It was time for new adventures- hence the RV.

Karl is a former respiratory services manager and clinical educator for a couple NC children's hospitals. My first career was in construction, remodeling, and restoration work, and I still value any excuse to buy a new tool. I appreciate interesting people, unique experiences, and international foods and cultures.

My wife Judi is an empathic introvert, who values harmony, serenity, and nature. She worked as a mental health counselor, but should have been a film critic! Judi's family camped in RVs throughout her childhood, and the four of them once crossed the US to Alaska, and back across Canada in a slide-in truck camper.

Skills & Expertise to Share

All manner of construction and repairs, pick and shovel work, and general toil.

Flytrapper's Pets

We have two small, mostly indoor, non-shedding dogs.

Mischa is an obedient, elderly miniature schnauzer, who sleeps about 20 hrs a day. She loves people, but being an alpha-dog, she is less enthusiastic about other dogs, so we limit her exposure to them.

Rico is a little Havanese, the national dog of Cuba. He loves anything that breathes- except lizards for some reason. He doesn't bark much, is well-trained, and if you have a treat, he can easily be bribed to perform.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

To be determined. (Update pending!)

Flytrapper's Hometown

Last home was in Wilmington, NC. Karl was born in Buffalo, NY, and grew up in Westport, CT and Pittsburgh, PA. Spent 30 years in eastern NC, before hitting the road. Judi was born in Alcala de Henares, Spain. Her dad was in the USAF, and growing up, she lived throughout the US. Her roots are in NC, with one branch of the family going back to 1650!
