Retired and enjoying life!

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We built out our own van in 2018 and have been enjoying vanlife fully! In the fall of 2018, we toured around Texas, Arizona, and Louisiana. In 2019 we covered Newfoundland quite thoroughly and then did a big tour of the US parks in Utah, New Mexico, Colorado and California. We have spent the winter of 2020 in the beautiful Kootenays of BC, skiing and spending time with family.

Wow, nice and courteous couple

Had an amazing first experience as hosts.
Big turtle are amazing nice couple. I enjoyed watching Irene impressed with our black night sky filled with shooting stars, had nice chats by the fire. Hearing others experiences is so much fun. Can't wait to see them again one day on our journey. You both are welcome back anytime😉

Their stay was short but pleasant. We'd be happy to have them return in the future. We'd like to have the opportunity to have a longer visit and get to know them better. (Maybe on their way west next time and they could share pictures of their new grandson?) Safe travels! Hope to see you soon.
