I retired from teaching in 1960 and moved to Washington State about 9 years ago. I live here with my wife, Debbi Steel, and we are actively involved in the community. We enjoy traveling and have traveled several times outside of the country. A couple of years ago we traveled across the US in a Rialta taking a northerly route east and coming back across a southernly route. We now have a 97 Born Free, President RV and plan to travel from Washington State to Washington DC and then head up to Canada and travel West through that country. We enjoy music and we like to walk together. We, in fact, walked the Cotswold Trail, which was 100 miles in ten days, two years ago. Debbi enjoys yoga and I like photography and of course, video. I am having fun doing videos that help people or organizations share there products or services. We are very social and enjoy meeting people and learning about their travel experiences and also enjoy picking up on RV travel tips.
I have good people skills and have love to talk about places I have been to around the world. I have pretty good computer skills, but my wife, Debbi, worked on computers in her job before her retirement, and she helps me out when I get stumped by the ghosts in the machine. I have an interest in Buddhism and see it as a good philosophy rather than a set religion.
Boondocking is new to us and we may have something to say about this when we get back from this trip.
I was raised in the mountains behind San Bernadineo until I was 9 and then moved to Montclair, CA. I lived there until my early 20s and spent much of my adult life in Ojai, CA which is a lovely tourist stop for many folks from LA. Ojai is a great small community and I now live in Port Townsend, which is also a great small community.
The Born Free RV is 22' 11'' long. It has a cab-over sleeping area and has septic and gray water holding tanks. We have 30 amp power, and a two burner propane stove. We are self contained and appreciate the ability to cook for ourselves as well as having our own living quarters where ever we travel.
