Retired couple travelling across Canada

Active Guest

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I am a retired biology professor and my wife is a retired occupational therapist. We love the outdoors and enjoy all self- propelled activities.
We reside in the Shuswap area of B.C. and have a large organic garden and fruit trees. We live in a partially earth-sheltered home and heat with wood. We are travelling across Canada for the first time.
We have two adult children. Our son is a mechanical engineer working in Vancouver, our daughter is a medical student at UBCO, and our son-in-law is an archaeologist.

Skills & Expertise to Share

We are willing to share our knowledge of camping, hiking, and skiing in B.C. in exchange for local information on beautiful local areas to explore.

tom+eleanor's Pets

We have no pets.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

This is our first attempt at boondocking. We hope to have some favourites by the time the trip is over.

tom+eleanor's Hometown

We live near the town of Salmon Arm which is on Shuswap Lake in B.C. This is a wonderful area offering lots of recreational and cultural opportunities. We think the cross country ski area is the best in B.C. and hiking and biking areas abound. The population of Salmon Arm and surrounding small communities is about 25000. There are about 10 secular choral groups, a town band, and many other small music groups plus several drama groups in the area.

tom+eleanor's Rig

Rig Type: Travel Trailer

15 feet long

Our rig is a grey [email protected] trailer which has the "teardrop" shape. We pull it with a RAV4. It has a kitchen, shower, toilet, and bed and about 7 square feet of standing room between the bed and the kitchen. We lie on the bed or sit outside. We can put an awning onto the trailer that gives us additional protected outside space.

Great guests.

Tom and Eleanor were very interesting guests. We had a great conversation about their hiking and backpacking and are certainly welcome back any time.

Lovely camping couple...

These two are truly outdoors people who know how to make the most of what the motor home travel life has to offer. It was our pleasure to host them on our property.
