I grew up and live in Ohio with my wife, children and dogs. I love traveling to old and new spots throughout the US. The people I meet while traveling has been great and I'm looking forward to meeting new people daily. I also like quite and isolation at times which makes staying in National Parks and other secluded areas nice as well. I have retired, well kinda of forced retirement since having an accident while working on the River as a deckhand. I travel with my dog and my son when he is out of school. I have worked in Law Enforcement for 20 years before taking a job on the river. With the Law Enforcement background I am security minded.
I enjoy being outdoors and there is nothing better then floating on a still lake in a kayak. I have been doing embroidery, screen printing and vinyl since 2002. I enjoy having some of my equipment on board so I can cut a decal for someone having an idea or digitizing a design for someone that wants something embroidered.
I travel in an older model 1983 Ambassodor 26' motor home. I am in the process of remodeling and upgrading it. It will be solar powered at the start of the new year, although I will still have the generator to fall back on if needed. I respect other people and their desire for peace and quite as well by observing quite time and shutting the generator down at night. Life is to short and complicated to not make friends instead of enemies.
Computer skills, photography, graphics, and light carpentry since injuring my feet. Cooking and preserving foods, natural remedies and cures. Security site planning, security camera set ups and recording. All around security personal and corporate knowledge.
Yes 1 Black Lab mix with Mastiff and 2 Dauchsaunds.
I have had nothing but a great time while staying with different host last year.
Central Ohio just South East of Columbus off Interstate 70.
1983 Class C Ambassodor 26' motor home on a 2 ton ford chassis. I have potable water tank with separate grey water and sewage tanks. Shoreline for 30amp, external generator and soon will have 45 watt solar panels installed with 3 deep cell batteries to store power.
Short stay but most enjoyable. Both Rayohio and his son were easy to talk with on a variety of topics. Hope they come back this way again.
Rayohio and son spent a quiet overnight with us on a recent weekend in July. Since it was an enroute stop for him during a long drive, his stop was brief but these are very nice folks, indeed. He pulled out very early and very quietly, and we never heard him leave.
We'd happily host him again and look forward to his next visit. If Rayohio reaches out to you to request a stay, you'll have an excellent and respectful guest.
Ray is a super nice guy. He gave us power so we didnt have to run the generator and we chatted for a bit upon arrival.
We had work to do (which is usually the case since we work from the road/home) and Ray was hands off and letnus plug away.
The 2nd day was spent doing the same, with a quick check in from Ray. Then we relaxed our evening away, getting us ready to hit the road this morning.
Anyway, nice giy, nice place to relax or work while in town.
Ray has been very accommodating, offered assistance to set my rig in place. The concrete pavement was quite appropriate enabling to avoid parking in the grass or mud.
Nice and quiet neighbourhood.
Host was very accommodating. We enjoyed our stay. Very quiet neighborhood.
Ray is an incredibly helpful and generous host. He welcomed us on short notice. When a very strong thunderstorm came through, he came out immediately after the heavy rain to check our status, and make sure we were OK.
Ray is very well informed on RVs and trailers. He spends time during the year RVing with his son, usually in Florida. Ray seems to keep up quite well with many RVers who are on YouTube. Ray helped us locate a local RV Park which welcomed us warmly, almost like family. We were able to stay 2 nights on Ray’s lot while waiting for our reservation at a nearby RV Camp to become available.
Ray even volunteered to help us if we needed any support while we were at the RV Park. We highly recommend Ray’s stop.
