New Traveling Retirees

Active Guest

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

My wife and I are both 58 year old retirees. She retired from teaching high school German after 35 years, and I am a newly retired firefighter. We are just getting started traveling. My traveling bucket list is touring North America in an RV I built from a small cargo trailer. Her traveling bucket list is to visit all the continents. We love hiking and biking and meeting new people and communities.

Skills & Expertise to Share

My wife speaks German and French, and I am fairly handy with DIY projects.

We have a cat named Sunshine, but she does not travel with us. We leave her at home in the capable hands of our son.

Nice friendly couple

Didn't even know they were here they were so quiet, till morning and I am glad I got to meet them. So nice and cheerful even though they had truck trouble the day before causing them to arrive late. Would host them again any time.

T & C were very considerate and a sweet couple to boot. While there stay was short, our brief conversations were very engaging. Highly recommend this couple as great guests and hope to see them again soon.

Please come back!

Ctheckman were the best. We really enjoyed sitting around the campfire with them last night. A delightful couple.  Ctheckman has made an incredible camper out of a cargo trailer. Very nicely done. This couple is welcome back here anytime. We wish they could have stayed for more than one night. Hopefully our paths will cross again someday out there on our great highways and byways.  Thank you for your service as a fireman.
