Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We are vegetarian foodies that love oceans and mountains. We are hikers and nature photographers/artists. We are also clinical social workers who operate a therapy practice remotely as we travel, while providing trainings in advanced clinical practices. We love animals and meeting new friends.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Cooking, baking, painting, light maintenance, art/photography, meditation, we can answer a lot of health questions, sewing, crocheting, needle work.

thesabbatical's Pets

We have two amazing adult dogs. Our first is a blue merle Border Collie named Isa (pronounced Ee-sah). She lives for fetch and snuggles. She LOVES children. The second is a long hair, chocolate dapple Miniature Dachshund named Snickers. He is FULL of personality. He barks a little bit initially to say hello, but then he's very quiet. Snickers' favorite activity is napping, so most people forget he's around. Both dogs travel with us full time and are very friendly.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

So far we have mostly boondocked in National Forests in Arizona, Utah, and Idaho. Those were amazing experiences, and we're excited to see what other opportunities exist.

thesabbatical's Hometown

We travel full time now, so we are always on the road. Before we began this lifestyle, we lived in the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti area of Michigan.

Two Nice and Caring Campers

Two very nice people with absolutely adorable dogs. They gave us good advice for when our travels begin. They are welcome back here anytime. Thank you for the very thoughtful gift we really appreciated it, but it was not necessary. Stay safe and enjoy your travels.
