Retired and living out of a suitcase

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Retired in 2010, we left northern Idaho after raising our family there for 30 years. We love to travel and explore new places, usually not staying in one spot very long. We have lived in 5 different types of RVs since then and now think we’ve found our perfect one-our 30-ft Airstream Classic trailer pulled with a Ram 2500 truck. We like to fit in some volunteer time with the US Forest Service or State Parks and we are Representatives for SkyMed International (medical emergency transportation) which keeps us moving! One of our hobbies while on our journey is Geocaching and during our worldwide travels we have found geocaches in 46 countries. In addition to our RV, we travel by cruise ship, plane, train, bus, car and on land.

Skills & Expertise to Share

We like to share our hobby of Geocaching and also Dutch Oven cooking.

Outstanding guests

JKCOTTONS are the type of guests that reflect the true purpose of BW. Gracious, independent, respectful appreciative, quiet & engaging. We had the honor of having them for 5 nights here & welcome the opportunity to cross paths with them in the future, whether hosting again here or on the road. Simply lovely duo that exude positivity.

Lovely gracious guests!

K and J spent one night with us and I wish we had more time with them. They are a treasure trove of great information about full time RVing, traveling to Alaska (as we are this summer) and also exotic housesitting. I hope they come back because we will have much more to talk to them. Much to their credit, they had just gotten off a plane and were hoping for a quiet night.

We had Jkcottons stay with us and as it turned out they were friends with Marianne and Randy so we had a great night of entertainment and learning from these 4 people who have extensive knowledge on traveling. Would have both couples back again.
