Do you know or have you hosted this user?

My wife - Jeanne - and I retired in 2017, and now travel full-time: summers by trailer, winters overseas. Our home base is Seattle, where we lived for most of our lives and were professionally involved in the community. Most recently I worked for the city's Transportation Department on major construction projects. Jeanne owned and managed a community relations firm, also working on large projects with both developers and government agencies.

Skills & Expertise to Share

I can teach the ancient oriental board game "go" - having played for several decades myself. My Excel programming skills are reasonably good, and transferrable. And I've learned a few things about making my wife happy, probably not transferrable.

ArtBrochet's Pets

No pets at present.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

A friend's riverside property in Walla Walla, Washington; a tree-lined residential street in Ballard, Washington and my sister's driveway in Salt Lake City, UT.

ArtBrochet's Hometown

Seattle, Washington - specifically the Greenlake neighborhood, although we have long association with Fremont and Capitol Hill as well.

ArtBrochet's Rig

Rig Type: Travel Trailer

17 feet long

Our tow vehicle is a 2018 Kia Sorento - a mid-size SUV. The trailer is a 2018 Alto, manufactured by Safari Condo. The trailer looks like an all aluminum teardrop when being towed, but the entire roof pivots upward from a hinge across the front when parked. The result is a spacious light-filled abode with a dinette, stove, sink, refrigerator, bathroom and a bigger than queen sized bed, with a 6'10" ceiling. The trailer has solar panels on the roof, and drive motors on the two wheels (for maneuvering the trailer independently of the tow vehicle).

Great Guests!

We enjoyed the time spent with us. They were no problem to host and provide a place to stay. If in our area they are welcome to stay again!
