Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We are Gary and Ellen. We are recently retired. Gary was an electrical engineer and Ellen worked as an office admin for a counseling office. We travel in a new 21' Escape molded fiberglass trailer. We just got it in May 2020! For five years before that, we had a Casita 17' travel trailer.
Our little dog, Cash, is along for the ride. We never boondocked with our last trailer, but plan to do a lot of it with this new one we just got, as we now have solar!! We are looking forward to exploring our beautiful country and meeting nice folks along the way. We also hope to visit Canada's provinces.

Best Experience Ever!

We have loved all our guests, but found a special bond with this couple! We seemed to have so much in common and loved hearing about their travels, quilting, repairing vintage sewing machines, camper buying experience, and Cash, their traveling companion. Would have liked to hear more about their coffee roasting experience. Wish they could have stayed longer! You are welcome back any time!
