Skills & Expertise to Share

Pam and I had a food vending trailor in Florida because of our fondness for fresh Seafood from up in New England, we started a company called Whaling City SeafoodMy home town was known as the Whaling city New Bedford, Pam was a computer programmer for Ma Bell and when I met her in Boston, I had a refrigeration company, but we decided to change our lifestyles and we bought a 47' Cheoy Lee Ketch called Gwei-Lo and we brought it to St Thomas and did charters in the Virgin Islands. Pam now has a tutoring business educationing elderly people with their computers.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

When we got off boats for a while, we left Thailland and had my daughter who lives in Monterey Calif locate a motorhome I saw online that was for sale, she met the owners and took a bunch of Pics and sent them to me, I then bought the Southwind MH, flew to San Francisco, my daughter picked us up at the airport and brought us to the MH where we provisioned and outfitted it and after a brief visit with her we left and headed to Florida to visit some friends and my brother who has a Ranch in Ocala, we then traveled up to New England to go to a wedding then back to Florida where we decided to work at Disney. months later we headed down to Naples to visit some friends who were also sea Captains in Naples and we fell in love with that area. We have seen, worked,and traveled through so much of the world but our own country we have saved for last! That is what we are doing now

Wonderful couple

G and P arrived exactly when they said they were coming. They got settled in minutes and were off finding all the small gems of our little towns, including finding Aunt Bee's grave from Andy Griffin. Had a fun chat with them, learned a lot in a short amount of time. They were the perfect guests and I hope our paths cross again.

Interesting couple

Another very interesting couple We really enjoyed the time we visited with G and P. They sure have had an adventurous life compared to us. I am just amazed at how people enter our lives as complete strangers and in a couple days leave as friends. They are welcome back at any time. Hopefully we can meet up with them this winter in Florida.
