Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I retired in 2001. I read and do house chores all day long. I have'nt watched a television for many years. I get the little news I consume from NPR on FM radio. My immediate plans include visiting harbors in the contiguous US so I might purchase a live aboard sailboat (I sold my last one in 2007 and I really miss sailing). I also plan to visit some US (and possibly South American) areas of metaphysical interest to me. I am not married and the last of my grandchildren have just graduated from high school so I no longer have any responsibilities in Indiana. I am free to travel now.

Skills & Expertise to Share

I hang my hat in Indiana when I'm not traveling.

I had excellent handyman skills that are now waining. I was a competent sailor for most of my life (since
age 12 graduation from the Chicago Rainbow Fleet sailing school). Although I have'nt played since I was 13, I took concert piano lessons for 8 years.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

I have no boondocking experience as I am new to RVing. Everything I know (and that is not much), I learned
on youtube.

The man in a van

2nd time hosting this very interesting man. Always welcome to visit when in the area. No problem whatsoever....he comes and goes without any issues involving me.
Every host should be fortunate to have a visit from JimBob.

Great Guest

I sure enjoyed having Jimbob in my little corner of the world. Quite a gentleman for sure.
Enjoyed our talks as we got to know one another. He came and went without fanfare as he enjoyed the surrounding areas. Hope to see him again when he returns for the Big RV Show here in Tampa later this month.

Welcome to BW. Glad to be your first host.

Set the bar high for BW hosts. Jim was here during Christmas with other BW guests and had the opportunity to meet and share and not be alone or away from family. Became a member of the BW family. Friendly. Respectful and appreciative of our host location. Welcome back any time. Travel safe and enjoy your adventure.
