I enjoy learning about my area of the country, other areas of the US, and other parts of the world. I enjoy meeting other travelers.

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I enjoy traveling in my pickup and camper to see towns, mountains and back country areas. I am gluten intolerant and need the safe eating of my camper instead of hotels and restaurants. I have been involved with fisheries and agriculture in my career and enjoy being outside. I like to hike and bike. My handle comes from being in the Peace Corps many years ago.

I live in an area with great day hiking in the lowlands and mountains and enjoy the area. Lots of skiing around here also, but watch out for snowboarders.

Most of my family is in this area but many friends and cousins are scattered from here to the east coast and I will be checking out more of their driveways now that I am retired.

Skills & Expertise to Share

I get along fine with computers, Microsoft type, and photography. I make great coffee but not a creative cook.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Several places in valleys and hills around Winthrop, WA, particularly at Buck Lake. I had a nice place on the south side of Lake Chelan which is gone, and last time was up a long and hairy single lane road to a nice camp area with views over the lake. North of Moab, UT, is a nice freeway rest area with a view. A friends driveway near Bishop, CA with a great guided tour of the hills and views. The airport N of Markleeville, CA on 89 in the pine trees and fresh air, thanks to a forest service person. Most places in Puget Sound are no longer available except for rest areas.

Peace Guy's Rig

I have a 4x4 Ford pickup with the smallest and narrowest Lance camper so I can get around in the mountains around here. It has all the comforts of a shower and a good freezer to take care of my ice cream. No dance floor but plenty of room for me and fine if a friend is along. Solar panel on the roof keeps the battery charged.
