Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Hello, I am a retired French immersion teacher as well as a writer and journalist. My husband is a retired electronics technician. We live in a great location near beaches and golf courses a short 15 minute drive from downtown Victoria.
We have grown kids who are spread out over the face of the planet so we do a fair bit of air travel. Tents, sleeping bags, and tiny stoves have often been part of our luggage as we camped our way around France, Switzerland, and even Hawaii. We joined the RV community a few years ago when I bought a Boler to restore. We now have and equally tiny 2008 Trillium Outback.
On summer evenings we enjoy wine and conversation on our treetop deck. Visiting boondockers would be most welcome to join us.

Skills & Expertise to Share

I can sew and have made and repaired several vintage style trailer awnings.
Tom is good at wiring.
I am a bit of an Apple computer geek and can probably teach you something you don't know.
Ici on parle francais!
Tom is the amazing gourmet cook in the family.
If you want to learn how to make goat cheese or French baguettes then talk to me!

I hope they are all right.

55Goddess made a reservation for AM arrival of two trailers. Took a bit of finagling, managed to come up with room to spare. She didn't show up, didn't notify.
