We have had our RV (and a previous RV) for several years but this is the first time we have been full timers. Just sold the house recently and are finding our way among state parks, and boon docking sites. I was a mom and gentle women farmer on 4 acres on Whidbey Island raising chickens, ducks, and geese and managing a large garden that largely fed my family much of the year. Previous to that I had another farm on Lummi Island where, in addition to the aforementioned animals, I had goats, and a couple of horses. I made and sold goat milk soap and participated in the farmers market and the annual lavender festival. I am retired from Smith Gardens of Bellingham where I was a sales rep servicing big box stores with our garden products.

Steve retired from Island transit a year ago and is a jack of all trades. He is a veteran, has been a business owner, propane delivery and repair/installer and I have literally not seen anything he can't fix or build. That comes in very handy when traveling in an RV.
We are looking forward to traveling and also buying a home at some point but for now we are foot loose and enjoying not having the encumbrances of home ownership.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Some farm animals and farming skills and Steve can fix most anything. He is particularly adept at electrical and has installed our solar system on top of our class A RV.

suechid's Pets

I have a 2 1/2 year old black lab that I adore. She is finally getting to the point of NOT being so much of a puppy. Because I am a little over the top about her safety she is very seldom off leash however she is trained to come to her dog whistle should that ever happen.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Have not boondocked yet except at a state park.

suechid's Hometown

Last home town was Freeland WA on Whidbey Island. We are currently full time RV'ers.
