Do you know or have you hosted this user?

My husband, Doug, and I are the parents of four young adults, all of whom are in various stages of professional careers or university. We are both retired school teachers. We read, travel, and value time with our immediate and extended family. Life is good; there is always a new experience to be enjoyed and something new to learn.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Lots of information about camping in Alberta, British Columbia, and Saskatchewan. Good resource for our immediate area.

Great Guests

It was a pleasure hosting patriciaschwandt and puppy. We very much enjoyed chatting during their stay with us and we hope to stay connected and perhaps meet up again.

Unfortunately we didn't get to meet our hosts as they were away. But they gave us the go-ahead to park and access to power even in their absence. Very kind. It was easy (street) parking. And very easy to get level without the use of any gadgetry.
