Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We love to travel from May to October of each year. We live in Queen Creek, AZ, and so spend the winter months in our home (no need to leave!!!) We love to search for lighthouses, covered bridges, Icebergs, water falls, glaciers, and any absolutely gorgeous vistas of this beautiful world. We are really prone to traveling in Alaska, Canada (including Newfoundland and Labrador) and the upper half of the United States. We especially love the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We are now happily married going on 55 years together. We have 8 married children and 35 grandchildren and 1 great grandson. We visit them, but they do not travel with us in our journeys.

Skills & Expertise to Share

I was a Real Estate agent in Arizona, so my mechanical and "handyman" skills are very limited.

So helpful!

Rthornock was respectful of our property. Very kind and friendly people. They have traveled extensively in two areas that we have high in our bucket list and they took the time to share in detail about both places. So....maybe we will run into them in the Maritime Provinces or in Alaska! Stop by again.

Great Couple!

We were happy to host this great couple! After arriving they were able to settle in for a few restful nights after what we hope were some adventure filled days here in the PNW! Very respectful, great communication and great conversations. They are welcome back anytime we're able to host them. 😀
