Gatsby and Me — Travels

Active Guest

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 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.
