Married couple, retired geologist & semi-retired cybersecurity engineer


Super Guest

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We are an early 60's age semi-retired couple with a large truck camper rig, looking to explore the US and Canada. With 3 solar panels, 3 deep marine batteries and two on-board propane tanks, electric hookups are not a requirement, but certainly are nice to have when available.

We are fairly new to this mode of travel, having only one long trip under our belts before Covid hit; now looking to start our travels. We are generally quiet, courteous folk who tend to shy away from parties and night-life. No judgements one way or the other, but both of us are Covid vaccinated as of April 2021.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Ken is relatively handy with tools as related to construction and home repair. His expertise when working was environmental hydrogeology. Claudia is quite handy with most things computer related and works for a major bio-tech as a cybersecurity specialist.

karichards's Pets

We have a 10+ year old Newfoundland dog who, as you would expect with this breed, is exceptionally calm and lazy. She is ALWAYS leashed and generally never out of our sight (dad is a bit anal about this). Proper dog etiquette when it comes to leashing, barking and clean-up are a priority with us.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Being newbies, we are wide open to possibilities.

Great Folks

What a wonderful couple! We thoroughly enjoyed their visit and conversation, even discovered karichards graduated from the same highschool! It is indeed a small world. We hope they will return in the near future and look forward to a visit to their neck of the woods. Wishing them well as they begin their hosting adventure.

Can't wait to visit them in NH

We hosted Ken this summer when he was on his way westward. He is a relaxed good guy and his dog is exceptionally well mannered. I am pleased to give him a reference and plan on visiting his place in NH when we return from the Maritime's next summer.

Pleasant and a nice rig

He was in/out the next morning. A man on a mission to get his dog to a vet hospital in California. He is welcome back and makes a minimal impact during his stay. Thanks for staying with us.

We truly enjoyed accommodating karichards. Very respectful of our home and property. Kept excellent communication before arriving. You wouldn't even know they had a dog - very well behaved. Karichards is more than welcome to return if ever in our area again. We wish them safe travels!
