I've spent many years backpacking all over the globe (60+ countries) and am now looking at a Class B van. I travel a lot so I just mark myself as available and will respond if I can accept guests. If I'm gone I may not respond to your request, requests expire after 2 days it looks like. It's not because I'm purposely ignoring you, just that I am not available.
Daisy is my 42lb mutt (boxer, pit, american bull dog and an undetermined small dog as she's very petite for those other breeds). She doesn't bark, at all. (ok, I've heard her bark 3 times in 5 years, only when she wanted to play so bad but couldn't). She LOVES people and dogs and cats and really everything, but she can be a rough player so I actively supervise any allowed playing. I also keep her on a leash almost always, as she's a dim bulb when it comes to cars. She prefers to be close by me anyway, so if she is with me say in my back yard off leash, she still stays within 10 feet.
I grew up in Columbus, Ohio, and moved back so I could buy a home and start my own business. My family is here. I've also lived in Santa Barbara, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York City, as well as Bangkok and New Zealand.
I had met EleanorRigby earlier in December, on the 3rd and had enjoyed my stay at her host location. I had put in a request to make a brief stopover on my return leg. She had graciously accepted. It just so turned out that I arrived at the location kind of late and had to leave real early before daybreak as I had quite some distance to cover, so I was unable to meet her for the second time. Everything went smoothly. This time, I was "self-contained" and did not need the electric hook up that she had offered. Again, my deepest gratitude to this fantastic host. I am still in awe of all the traveling around the world that she has done.
EleanorRigby is quite the traveler. She took time to recount some of her memorable stories. She also has the knack for storytelling. Just hope she publishes her book about her travels and advise to other similar travelers. My "self contained" RV proved to be "not so." One of the batteries in the bank of 2 decided to die. I was grateful for the electric hook up. Daisy, her dog was a delight too. Hoping that our paths cross again.
Thank You again. Everything was quite easy at your location. Good luck when you start traveling.
Hey alley parking spot so peaceful considering how close it is to everything. She is such a nice lady, very open and intrequed to help other travelers! Looking forward to seeing her on the road soon! Highly recommend this in town stay your a smaller rig.
Amiee was exceptionally accommodating during the Midwest heat wave. We parked on the garage landing, which was just the right size for our [email protected] teardrop trailer. She even lent us a floor/box fan to help us keep cool.
We would look forward to visiting her again if our itinerary permitted. The neighbourhood she lives in is very safe and walk-able. Coffee shop about 3/4 mi away...great for a morning stroll.
