Young couple on a "mini-retirement"

Active Guest

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We are a young couple traveling with our dog in a small 5th wheel camper. We decided it's time to take a break from our careers for a bit to enjoy life and travel. We enjoy hiking, and we brought our mountain bikes with for occasional rides if the opportunity arises. In this trip we hope to see roads less traveled, and meet fellow adventurers along the way!

He is a machinist and an all-around handyman. She is a scientist who dabbles into art and sewing for fun. He's traveled all 48 states, she's lived in 3 continents. For us, the adventure never stops.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Mechanic / machinist
Jake is a huge tinkerer and enjoys mechanical problem solving. In my world, anything Jake touches practically fixes itself :)

Irene recently got into sewing clothes as a hobby. If you need some basic repairs like patching holes or closing up seams, let me know!

irene_jake's Pets

Yes! Maggie, a 30lb low energy labrador-pit mix. She LOVES attention and pets and treats. She is well trained though slightly anxious around other dogs, so we don't allow her near other dogs and keep her on a leash at all times.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Our recent stay in the UP, which showcased perfect conditions for stargazing and cool summer nights currently holds that spot! But we are new to this so we are still on the search for our favorites!

irene_jake's Hometown

Irene is from Manila, Philippines and moved to the US for her postdoc stint. Jake is from Manhattan, IL. We are staying in the RV full time for a few months until we decide on a place to settle to.

Stellar Company, Remarkable Help.

We could not have asked for better people as our first Boondockers. They were a great help with farm chores and pleasant guests that, over the course of their stay, became friends. They were always gracious guests who treated our place as their own. We look forward to hosting them again on their next trip to the UP.

Sweet couple

What a sweet couple. Very polite. He is certainly amazing. When we travel he would be so handy to have close at hand.
She is adorable.
They are most welcome to return.

Very nice young couple.

We didn’t have a chance to visit, but great communication with these guys. Quite and didn’t even know they were here. So glad they enjoyed visiting our area.

What an awesome couple!

Some people enjoy quiet, peaceful relaxation and down time while traveling, others a never met a stranger. It is always fun to figure out just what each guest desires. We told ourselves that we would go over to their camper and visit for an hour. We had so much in common and so enjoyed our visit, it went way into the night. We had to force ourselves not to wonder over there very often because we didn't want to "hover", but yet we could have easily talked for hours more. Great conversationalist, and by the time they left, they felt like family! irenejakedavis, may you have smooth roads and tailwinds as you crisscross the country! We will miss you!
