Artisan and musician couple

Expired Guest

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

My husband is a slightly obsessed fly fisherman and the rest of the time he is a musician. I am an artisan working mainly in hand made felt. We both love camping and I have talked him into fishing our way across Canada in a kind of slow meander to the Maritimes. It will be a first trip for him to see the rest of Canada. Between us we have 3 languages English, Japanese and French.

Skills & Expertise to Share

I'm a Felter and dyer and have taught these skills. For more information see my homepage www.makersiki.com . I'm a longtime organic gardener and will be missing my garden so I'll be happy to help out. I'm also a hobby herbalist and interested in the plants around me for their uses as food medicine or craft. My husband is a great cook, especially fish (me, I do low carb desserts) and as a Jazz musician is happy to jam with others.

SockeyeandCoho's Rig

Rig Type: Class B

17 feet long

So, we just got our tiny diesel, 4x4 1993 Mitsubishi JB500 motorhome after months and months of looking for the right vehicle to fish our way across Canada in. It is amazingly small and yet has a tiny stove/sink/fridge/toilet and shower. We hope that the extra battery for inside use will charge nicely as we travel so that we won't have to use our 'shore' electrical hook-up . As it is only 17ft long (although about 9ft high) it can park in any parking space. In good weather we like to cook outside on a Coleman camp table and have the awning out so that would take up more space.

Awesome

These two are the cutest couple and very laid back. Didn't even know they were here.

Glad you were able to catch a fish for your supper, can't get much fresher than that.

Safe Travels.
