Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I am a quiet white-haired woman with five tiny shih tzus (I breed them on occasion). The pups are quiet unless another dog approaches, and I am working on training them to be quiet even then. I love to hike, and would likely not walk the doggies on your property, but rather during a hike. Being in nature is part of my spiritual path. I used to teach college English and serve as an advisor in a graduate program at the University of Washington. For the past 9 years I have worked summers as a campground host in a Washington State national forest. Am waiting to hear if national forest campgrounds will even be open this summer.

Skills & Expertise to Share

I play piano and teach kids duets! I love to play piano duets. I am also a writer.

Travel with 5 small shih tzus and occasionally their little puppies.. They are not yappers, and I never leave them alone in the trailer. I take them on hikes with me (they are surprisingly athletic).

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Well, in the past I loved the Potholes (Columbia Wildlife Refuge in Washington), but now ticks have become a problem in this lovely area. I've boondocked outside of Joshua Tree National Park.
