new retiree that is taking up a nomadic lifestyle

Active Guest

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I am a retiree who travels fairly extensively particularly across Canada.

Skills & Expertise to Share

I like to cook and bake, particularly bread and pastries! I could offer you a sketch of your home....I also knit and spin wool and do some quilting...mainly for new grandchildren.

gandrew's Pets

I have a cat and 2 hens but do not travel with any of them in my westie.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

When i retired a few years ago i used this service to travel the southern states extensively. I prefer secondary highways and small towns that offer opportunities of meeting people. I like to paint and write and hope to engage in these activities daily while traveling.

gandrew's Hometown

I live in Antigonish, Nova Scotia - a small University town just 1/2 hour away from world reknowned Cape Breton and the Cabot Trail!

WOW

Although arriving later in the day we had a little time to chat and this woman is incredible, and such a well seasoned traveler. I learned a ton in our short conversation and would have loved to sit down with a coffee or two and learned more. But she was up and gone early this morning, we wish her and her trusted companion Westie all the best.

Very enjoyable guest!

Gandrew only spent the one night but we hope to see her again. Very easy going with lots of great experiences and stories to share. An all-around good person that we were happy to host.

Very Pleasant

Gandrew only spent a single day/night with us. We spend several hours chatting that evening. We enjoyed her company very much. I highly recommend her as a guest.

She was our guest.

Gail stopped by for one night and was a very welcomed visitor. Her schedule was tight so she had to arrive late evening and depart early morning. That was easily understood and we recommend her very highly as a guest for others, and hope she has the opportunity to visit with us again. The VW camper she owns has always been one of our favorites. Good luck Gail as you continue your travels . JC and Mina

Very nice woman.

Gail was delightful. She stayed a couple of nights. She didn't require anything. I hope she returns someday. Nice experience.

A Delightful Boondocking Guest

Gail is delightful. She is a retired, smart, articulate professional, yet completely down to earth. Her little VW Westie takes up very little space, so she can easily fit anywhere a standard car can park. We enjoyed lighthearted conversations, yet touched on several serious and poignant topics relating to our individual life experiences. I'd rate her as a premium guest and she's been invited back should she pass through this way again. if she contacts you requesting to stay at your place, if you have the time and space available, I highly recommend that you invite her. You'll be the winner.

Welcome anytime

Gail contacted us on her way south to warmer weather (wish I was able to hide in her VW to that weather.) Unfortunately the weather was damp and raining for her stay. Really enjoyed the chats we had and as long as we are still here she is welcome anytime. Safe travel to you, till we meet again. Chris & Cheri.
Would recommend Gail to stay.
