Early Retirement so enjoying the open road.

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

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.

Skills & Expertise to Share

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.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

I am fairly new to Boondocking, the only area I have stayed is Wayne National Forest and Ohio Power Recreation Lands. Both those areas are very nice but no hook ups it is dry camping but well worth it. I would highly recommend Ohio Power which is located near McConnesville, OH. A free permit is required but there is a lot offered if you like fishing, hunting, hiking or several other options outdoor activities.

Super nice guys

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.

Super nice guest to have

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.
