Sailors, skiers and new RVers traveling through life on a spiritual journey.

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

New RVers. Most of the year, we sail the US, Canada, Caribbean & occasionally the Great Lakes. Between the last day of skiing here in Ellicottville, NY and the beginning of the next ski season, we will be sailing somewhere between Greenland and the South American continent. In the spring and fall between home in Ellicottville and wherever the boat happened to spend the winter we load up the toy hauler and go to see the sights in between, meet other campers and sailors and enjoy the ride. Love music, ethnic food, animals, meeting all kinds of diverse people, and our wonderful planet Earth. We are AIRBNB hosts at our ski chalet in the winter. It's such fun!

Skills & Expertise to Share

Can “shade tree” solutions with you if you need a hand with a repair or install. Don’t let me do electrical on your RV/trailer! Deb is the sailboat Captain. She was a wining sailboat racer for over 37 years. And she can really sew... just about anything. Can also join in your musical jams with keyboard, guitar, and we both love to sing.

DeborahandJohn's Pets

Nemo, a black short hair cat, has been with us since we saw her “I need a home” poster in Ashtabula, OH in 2014. She has been with us to over 25 states and five other countries.She loves sailing with us, cuddling in front of the fire at our ski chalet in the winter, and lying in the sun on the boat.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Newfoundland, Down East, Prince Edward Island NYS, RI, NB

DeborahandJohn's Hometown

In the winter Ellicottville, NY is a drinking town with a skiing problem. The rest of the year it hosts golfers, bicyclists (both road and mountain bikes), hikers on the Finger Lakes trail, etc. From Allegheny State Park to Zoar Valley and canoeing/kayaking/rafting on Cattaragus Creek, whether physically demanding or serenely peaceful there is a lot to see and do in the area. In the fall we return to town and work in the two ski areas in town. But since we live aboard our sailboat most of the year, that's home too!

Great guest to invite !

When we were contacted by this guest, our schedule wasn't the ideal, we were not going to be at home when they were scheduled to arrive... The guest seemed to be soo sypatic that we decided to leave them stay even if we were absent.

When we arrived, we thought there was a problem and they coulnd't come, the place was just exactely like it was when we left, not even a little garbage bad in the trash can !

I hignly recommand these great voyagers and hope to have the previlege to meet them sometime.
