Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Many past mini-careers. I did a 6 year stint in the navy doing electronics, did some road construction and home building, worked many years at various manufacturing plants, and I am currently a self employed licensed electrician (very part time).

I sold my 24 acre homestead in the mountains of western North Carolina in August of 2019, scaled down, and now part timing it at a friend’s farm (still in WNC). This beautiful farm just north of Asheville NC will be my landing spot between travels.

I have a 2018 featherlite 6X12 cargo trailer I converted into a self contained solar powered cool camper. Ready for the fun and adventures to begin!
My tow vehicle is a 2019 Nissan Frontier 4X4.

I thoroughly enjoy music, and have quite the eclectic taste. From the Grateful Dead to Frank Zappa, from Del McCurry to Led Zeppelin, from Willie Nelson to Hayes Carll, and many many more! I prefer my music fresh, but am pretty happy having it canned as well.

I’ve lived in nearly a dozen different states from childhood to now from coast to coast. Now I’m ready to travel to some of those same ones and many more and actually spend some time soaking up the local vibes and seeing and experiencing!

Festy guesty!

Fun man to share campfire stories with. He came in perfect time to share his amazing talents as well.
He entertained himself and made me feel like a gracious host.

Great Guest!

Festy was, hands down, a delightful guest to host. He was up and running every day to take full advantage of things to see and do in the area. We live in the country far away from town. Festy was always kind enough to check before leaving for the day to see if there was anything in town that he could pick up for us.

Clever camper

We enjoyed having Festy here at Hill Haven. The cargo trailer turned camper has had a lot of thought put into it. Hope he stops on his way back through so we can hear about his boondocking experiences...or maybe we will see him someplace along the way!

Wonderful guest

Perfect guest. He is kind and considerate and a good conversationalist. His built out trailer, which he gave me a tour of, is neat. He was very quiet during his stay. I recommend him as a guest and will welcome back anytime.
