Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Energetic 70+ woman and her small dog, Gatsby, traveling the US at a slow pace. Started from Maine in July 2018. Love to explore, hike, see how folks outside of Maine live. I’m also a knitter, spinner and weaver. My motto is “If not now, when?”

Great Guest.

Jaxie985 was a wonderful guest. I enjoyed talking to her about our area, the mountains, and views. She enjoyed the visit to the cliff dwellings and our town's nice dog park. Her little doggie is so sweet. Would welcome her back anytime.

Good Visit

Jaxie985 and her dog were very quiet. They spent 2 nights with us and we barely knew they were here. We had a pleasant but brief visit when she first arrived and we did not see or hear from her or her dog after that. They are welcome back any time they are in this area.

Pleasant & self sufficient

Jaxie985 is a very pleasant and interesting lady. We enjoyed talking with her and comparing places we’ve camped. She’s very self sufficient and it was a pleasure to host her.

Wonderful Lady

We so enjoyed hosting Jaxie! She is a well-traveled lady! I just came back from her hometown a week earlier.....small world! It was great hearing about the place I’d just returned from. We’d welcome her back any time.

Great lady with an adorable little trailer and dog. Very self sufficient - an inspiration for sure. We would welcome her back - and if so, hope she could stay longer.
