Retired couple that like to travel five out of twelve months. We have a goal to camp in every state with only 19 left. We enjoy volunteering at National Wildlife Refuges. We prefer nature over culture, that's why we often camp at national and state campgrounds. We kayak, boat, UTV, ski, hike, fish, and hunt. We enjoy making new friends on our travels.
We live in a very rural area in Southwest Wisconsin. Husband is retired carpenter, wife is retired technology manager.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Husband is retired carpenter and still enjoys woodworking (flatwork and turning). We remodeled a barn that is now our residence. Wife enjoys crocheting and board games.

Delightful and interesting

Good driver and nice rig: Backed cleanly into the spot and up on to the leveling blocks. We had a great chat with both of them in the driveway and later down by the beach while the dog swam trying to catch fish. Dan+Shirely are people oriented and interesting to talk with so we hope they will return sometime down the road.
