Retired contractor and current web marketer

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We have been retired from the working world since 2010. We are available nearly every day, doing web work. We have left our real estate behind, as of 11/19/15, and are now on the road, having spent time in western Arizona, and now in Florida at an RV park. We will be leaving our RV set as our home base, and travel in a minivan camper so we can get into more places and see more things. But we still plan to use our membership as a guest.

Skills & Expertise to Share

I am a retired master electrician and robotics technician as well as building contractor. Having grown up on a farm, I learned to do everything from carpentry to over-hauling engines. I got into web work in 1999 as I phased out the other tasks and currently have many web sites and blogs online dealing in ecommerce, mostly affiliate and digital sales. I was also the only Education Specialist Trained by eBay in all of Northeast Arkansas until I retired from that. I can coach anyone needing help with web design, internet, or program problems.

CaravanCamper's Pets

We were adopted by a snow white German Spitz of about a year old on tax day 2007. We previously had a purple ribbon American Eskimo, so it seemed like divine intervention that he found us and chose us to rescue him. We couldn't help but name him Angel, and he is our baby. He goes with us everywhere.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

We try to stay away from large cities as much as possible, even driving far around them enroute to our destinations. We don't mind "lot-docking" for a quick overnight, but really prefer state parks and other quiet areas in natural settings. We travel light, and have everything we need for a few days at a time in one place between supply runs. But we hardly ever stay more than two weeks.

CaravanCamper's Hometown

I graduated from Knox, Indiana, and my wife graduated from Nappanee, Indiana. We both spent our entire lives near our home towns in northern Indiana. We didn't leave snow country until 1992. Since we are now full-time RVers, we travel and settle wherever the weather takes us, currently in central Florida for awhile. We'll update if that changes.

CaravanCamper's Rig

Although we have had everything from a pop-up tent trailer to a 40-foot motorhome during the last 30 years, we have scaled back. Since making the decision to full-time again, we have gotten rid of our Dakota Quad-cab and North Star TC-650 camper. We are in the process of converting our 6 x 12 cargo trailer, and have already purchased a conversion van with which to tow it.
