Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I live in the middle of about seven acres, but it is not a farm in any way. I have a small goldfish pond and a short walking trail. There is no shade at the parking area.

It is a quiet spot with no theme parks or other tourist traps. There is one dog that likes children (and adults and other dogs too) and two cats that will disappear.

There are small village services (gasoline, restaurant, barber, drug store, etc.)within 2 miles, a major supermarket within 3 miles, and a car to borrow if necessary.

Skills & Expertise to Share

I have most common mechanics tools to loan if needed and do woodworking and boat building at the site.
