Solo female (with 2 indoor cats) exploring the awesome natural areas of North Am

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Solo female (with 2 indoor cats) exploring the awesome natural areas of North America. Hiking as much as possible. Occasionally working as campground host in National Forests. I love sitting outside with my coffee in the morning away from human sounds!

Skills & Expertise to Share

No skills to share that are very valuable! I can sequence your DNA, but that's not generally helpful. I'm a reasonably good gardener when I'm staying in one place long enough. I cook tasty, healthy, cheap meals pretty well. I'm extremely good with handling money and know what's important to spend it on!

lsander17's Pets

I have 2 cats, they stay inside 90% of the time. I occasionally bring them outside with their harnesses to sit with me near my camper

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Any place devoid of anthrophony!

lsander17's Hometown

I don't really have a "home" town. I grew up outside Atlanta, I've lived in Portland, OR, Edinburgh Scotland, London, Spain, suburbs of DC......and more than enough years in Tallahassee, FL. I haven't been able to be a BW host because my house is in a city neighborhood with a steep driveway on a very sloped road! an effort to support the sharing community, I've been hosting cross-country cyclists by sharing my guestroom with people cycling from coast to coast, especially people cycling on their own. My house in Tallahassee is right on one of the main cross-country cycling routes. It's been wonderful meeting these awesome solo cyclists!

Wonderful Guest

lsander17 spent a short time up on the mountain, but during that time I thoroughly enjoyed her company. I may have talked her ear off on our walk, but she shared some good advice. A lot to think about. lsander17 is good people! If you ever get a request to stay, take her up on it, you will enjoy her company as much as I did. Welcome back anytime.

Interesting lady and great guest

Amazing travels and perspectives. Our only regret is she, like most others, had to keep going. Had just enough conversation to know there is more story to learn. But we got her parked and all was well. She said she would like to stop again and we'll welcome her back.

Good but short stay by lsander17

My wife and I really enjoyed meeting Lsander and we certainly found a ton to talk about. But she only stayed overnight because she had to keep moving to her destination in the NorthWest. Too bad she had to depart, because after talking to her for awhile, she decided our area would be fun to explore. Oh well, maybe at some time in the future she'll be able to return and spend a little time. She'll be welcome when and if she decides to return! She was a nice and very cordial guest to host!

Very pleasant guest

lsander was a pleasure to be around. She has a refreshing curiosity about most anything she encounters. She would be most welcome here anytime.

Excellent Guest!

We had the pleasure of hosting a short stay with Isander17. She was polite and friendly. We enjoyed showing her our property and animals, we even got to enjoy a quick hike in a nearby desert mountain park. Enjoyed some great conversation with her. We would be happy to have her back here any time! 😊

Very Nice Lady

We had a lot of family in town so we didn't have much time to visit. Isander 17 is welcome at our house anytime. If you are in this area again stop by so we can visit a little longer.

Loved hosting this lady!

It's people like her that make hosting such a pleasure! She was completely self-sufficient, and very interesting to chat with. She's definitely welcome (and encouraged!) to come back any time!

Great visit with Lsander17

It was great to have Lsander17 stay with us for a couple days. Our schedule was busy so we did not have a lot of time to discuss our travels. Lsander17 was a great guest and welcome back anytime.

Friendly and Quiet

She rode in nice and quiet and slipped out just as quick and quiet. We only spoke briefly when she first came. Super nice and about to have a great experience. Welcome back any time.

Friendly and Conscientious

Isander17 contacted me to stay on our property. I wasn't able to give her an immediate reply and during that time her plans changed. I really appreciated that she immediately let me know when her plans changed and I feel she would have been a great guest.
