We have been married for over 50 years. We have 6 grown and independent children and 15 grandchildren. After retiring from IBM, I had a consulting business and taught college classes. I have enjoyed being completely retired for about 6 years.
We typically travel 3 or 4 months a year. This includes regular visits to see grandchildren and/or to enjoy nature. Most of our travel keeps us out of cities and when practical, off the interstates.
My wife was primarily a stay at home mother for our 6 children. She is an excellent care giver. With her free time, she enjoys movies and loves to read or sew. I have reached the age where I now seldom participate but enjoy watching sports.
Still have some computer skills that I haven't completely forgotten. My wife is an excellent seamstress.
We have a miniature dachshund that travels with us.
We like national forests, BLM land and state/provincial parks. We spend several weeks a year touring and then hosting as lighthouse keepers in northern Michigan. This year we plan to boondock our way to the only state we have yet to visit-Alaska.
Favorite boondocking locations include Georgia mountains, the upper peninsula of Michigan, Smokey Mountain area, Blue Ridge Parkway and in or near national parks.
We both grew up in western Pennsylvania and lived there two years after we were married. We since have lived in New York, Ohio, Tennessee, Kentucky and now in Georgia (about 10 miles from the University of Georgia).

Very nice people on a great adventure. They are welcome to come and stay again if their travels bring them our direction. We wish them safe travels.
Very nice couple very fun to talk with. Talked for about 30 to 45 minutes dog was cute but does not like golf carts for some reason. Really enjoyed their company hope they have a great trip and come back soon.
I was happy to have them as the first Boondocker’s Welcome host. It was a short visit on their long journey North and they are definitely welcome back anytime they’re passing through!
