Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We love boondocking... Have gone coast to coast, top to bottom. Started in a pop-up camper - an original Nimrod; had family fun with a converted school bus; empty-nestered to a VW Euro Van camper; and then to a 24' Chinoo;. Just downsized to a 19' Pleasure Way. Enjoy sports - soccer, senior slowpitch softball, swimming, yoga - (the Twins, Vikings, and U of MN/WIS games.) Have three adult kids, and six very active Grandkids: so are involved with their music, sports and whatever they are selling for fund raisers.

Bob plays Senior Slowpitch softball all year long, while I work part-time at The Marsh, a center for balance and fitness. This covid slowdown has truly been hard... excepting all the yard work that can be done staying home.

BobJanGetch's Hometown

Minnetonka is a western suburb of Minneapolis. We are located just off I 494. With easy access, yet are up a curving hill and the driveway to the pad is a bit steep. We are a part of the Hopkins School District. There are lots of parks and trails. And the Mall of America is not that far.
