Do you know or have you hosted this user?

My husband converted a sprinter van as a way for us to travel safely at this time as our summer travel plans were upended.

We both love to travel and so we are taking this opportunity to explore the US while we can't travel abroad.

We are originally from South Africa but have been living in the US for almost 20 years now. We have 4 grown children

Skills & Expertise to Share

I am knowledgeable about technology used for education and generally fairly techie as I used to be a programmer. I am good with online research :)

My husband can fix things as long as he has enough time and internet so he can get instructions on Youtube. He is also good with technology. He is also a very good photographer - and we have a drone.

merylvdm's Pets

We have two orange cats - who do not travel well so stay at home with a cat sitter

Favorite Boondocking Locations

The rim of the Badlands - so beautiful watching the sun rise and set over the Badlands. The free site was far more scenic than the paid campsites in the Badlands
