My husband and I married in 1982 and are the proud parents of married sons in their 30's. We are tickled pink at the women they chose and are delighted to now have young ladies in the family. Our first granddaughter was born July 27, 2018 to our younger son and his wife and our first grandson was born to our older son and his wife on February 20, 2019 and we are over the moon! My husband is a North Carolinian; I am originally from upstate NY, but have been happy to be in the south for over 50 years.
He is retired from a position in fundraising for a university. Prior to that, he worked in the world of banking. His passions are his family, backpacking, hiking, biking, skiing, and playing racquetball/handball/pickleball. He recently finished his lifelong goal of hiking the Appalachian Trail!
I am retired from my work in education, which included being an elementary school teacher, guidance counselor, parent educator, university administrator, and presenter in the mass media. My passions are our family, our family lakehouse and the lifelong friends we have there, the fun and support my girlfriends and I offer each other, charity work, hiking, biking, skiing, swimming, sailing, playing pickleball, and knitting.
We sold our "sticks and bricks" in May 2017 and are thoroughly enjoying being full-timers. We love seeing this beautiful country, having great adventures, and meeting our fellow Americans.
Oh, dear...for Bobbi, probably no more than anyone else!
David is a pretty good handyman.
Not at this time.
When we are "beelining," we frequently stop at Walmart. Enjoyed our stay with Boondockers, the Warings in Texas and George and Renee in Sturgis, SD. Stayed on some BLM land and that was nice.

"Miss Ally" is a 2016 Tiffin Allegro RED 33 aa coach. She is 35 feet long and has 4 slides, but we do not have to put them out if that's a problem.
Its people like this is why we open our place up. We really enjoyed the visit and always welcome back.
Of all the great Boondockers we’ve had the pleasure of hosting, Bobbi and David are sitting at the top. They are such a great couple; we are envious of them... almost as much as we are of their ‘home on wheels’ 😃. We shared a wonderful evening with them just chatting and telling our stories over a bottle of wine as if we had been long time friends. We hope to be able to see them again on our travels or to have them stay here again should their route bring them our way another day.
