Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I am getting old but I still think young and work hard at learning new things. In recent years (after a career in city planning and real estate development) I have been studying sound design and Spanish language. I have produced a series of radio prgrams for WYPR, the NPR station in Baltimore and am planning to do some recording whille on the road this summer. I might focus on interviewing Vietnam vets to see how they have fared in the pandemic and how they are living in their '70's and '80's. As a traveler I almost always find ways to enjoy my surroundings and am careful to leave a very light footprint.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Living in Portland, Oregon (I did this for two years)

Delightful guest

We enjoyed having T as our guest. Even with some mishaps in his path along the way before his arrival, he was nothing but charming and pleasant throughout his visit here. We thoroughly enjoyed our conversations and time with him and would welcome him back any time.

Wonderful guest!

I enjoyed hosting Tom at my newly "established" Boondockers Welcome site. He drove in a stranger and left as a friend. He's a wonderful storyteller with some incredibles tales (all real). Hopefully he'll come back one day.

Great guest! Awesome water melon picker!

Enjoyed hosting and meeting tomflynn. He enjoys learning about local history and eating places. I was able to help him with a camper issue and was sure surprised when he returned the favor with the best watermelon I have had this year. Thanks and safe travels!

Great guest

Tom was a very nice gentleman. We enjoyed our short visit with him. So glad he got to experience some of what our area had to offer despite the rain. Would love to have him visit again.

A wonderful, kind, polite, interesting and respectful gentleman!

I totally enjoyed having Tom stay here. He was a delight to chat with and I am glad he was able to enjoy some of what the area had to offer, in spit of the cold rainy time he spent here.
