Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I am an Engineer and my wife Vicki is a Pharmacist.

From back in Australia we bought an RV in Phoenix, site unseen, and registered it in Montana. Now that was an exercise in paperwork that took about 2 months.

We hope to travel America and Canada for about 3-6 months a year, and store the RV somewhere in between.

Back in Oz, I converted a small bus to an RV, and we have toured Oz extensively over a period of about 6 years.
We have done what we call the big lap (one complete circumnavigation) about 1 and a couple of 1/2 times. (took a short cut up the middle)

We are also members of an RV club in OZ called the CMCA, and we love going to their rallies usually 2 to 3 times a year. We've also been on about 4 of their safaris. I think you call them caravans.

We are hoping to meet some locals, make some new friends and get a real feel of the culture.

PS we are also ex -yachties, we sailed the Queensland coast for about 2 years.
And we are into Rock and Roll, and swing jive. (and a bit of ballroom, but we won't talk about that)

Skills & Expertise to Share

As I said, I am a semi retired Engineer specializing in plumbing Design, pipework, pumps etc.

I have a web site where I offer free programs to help people design roof gutters, and a lot of other things.

But I know a lot of things about pushing dirt around, building stuff, and major construction.

Ken's Pets

We aren't travelling with pets;

but at home we have a dog. We love dogs, and have had a few over the years.

Our present dog looks a bit like a Japanese spritzer crossed with a sausage dog.
He's what they call a rescue dog, ie we took him off death row, and he is very grateful for that, but he has had some experiences in the past which make him a very interesting character.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

We are new and haven't started yet.

Ken's Hometown

We live on the Sunshine coast of Queensland Australia. Look up Buddina on Google maps. We can walk to the beach, the river, a major shopping center, pubs, restaurants, schools, cinemas, parks, walking tracks, medical, tennis courts, library, community hall, boy scouts, girl guides, in fact I can't think of anything that we can't walk to. When we go on a holiday, we think where can we go? We're already here.

Lovely foreigners.

It is such a pleasure to visit with people visiting our country. To get their impressions and to learn about their Homeland. Wish they could have stayed longer.
