Retired couple with interests in walking, bicycling, photography, and open to developing new interests as we enjoy our RV adventures.

Joe retired from the Army after servicing in the Infantry and in Logistics Management then worked as an senior administrator at a private university in Hawai) until his retirement. Val is a retired Licensed Clinical Social Worker. We are part-time RVers and have spent about 5 months/year visiting family, reconnecting with old friends, and seeing parts of the United States that we have not been to before. As an Air Force “brat” Joe lived on the East coast, mostly in the DC area as well as in Taiwan and the Philippines. The Army took us to Germany several times as well CA, KS, GA, VA, and TX. Joe enjoys SCUBA diving both as a diver and as an instructor, walking, bicycling, and photography. Until our retirements we found ourselves on the couch in front of the TV too often and are looking to enjoy more things outdoors. We still think of ourselves as younger than we are and feel there are so many places we still want to see and enjoy.
