Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I am a retired welding business owner of 40 years. I enjoy hiking, kayaking, fishing, photography and oil painting. I'm also still riding the trails on my Dual Sport motorbike, just not near as fast as I used to! I prefer to travel to off-the-beaten-path type attractions where the large crowds don't attend.

Skills & Expertise to Share

I guess I am sort of a jack-of-all trades. I never buy anything I can build myself. I built my work shop, my house, and even built my own Bass boat.

Jims56acres's Hometown

I live in a small town on the end of a no outlet rd. where I am fortunate to own 56 acres and I am surrounded by hundreds of undeveloped acres. Very quite and peaceful area.

Super quiet couple

So quiet I didn't even know if they stayed :) Actually, there was a scheduling snafu on my end, we weren't actually home when they arrived, and they were gone by the time we got back. We would welcome them back, and would like to meet them in person!

Recent stay.

We really enjoyed meeting Jim and hearing about his planned trip west and about his plans for hosting boondockers. ( which seems like it will be a wonderful place to visit when touring his area. Hope he can stop by again in future.
