Originally from London, England, spent some years in Europe before emigrating to Montreal, Canada in 1967. Spent a couple of years in Prince Edward Island and moved to my present base in Ottawa, Ontario.I own a condo in Ottawa, which is currently rented, while I browse North America in my 20ft Roadtrek motorhome.
Spent 2016-17 winter in Arizona (Desert Trails, outside Tucson), and joined the Solos group of the Escapees RV Club at the Escapade in Tucson. Forced to spend several months of 2017-18 winter in Ottawa - Brrrh! - due to small fire. Currently in Ottawa, before heading out for a while.
Plan to spend next winter in and around Arizona, largely with Solos. Quartzsite, Yuma, Tucson ....
My big loves are warm weather/sun, sailing, horse riding, easy walking and the great outdoors. Mostly positive, I am always game to try something new. I enjoy both sharing with other people and spending time alone.
My mother tongue is english, and I speak french, german, spanish and one or two words of russian. This been a great asset in my business life, where, alongside my admin skills, I have considerable experience in PR and problem-solving.
In addition to volunteering, I have worked, both part- and full-time, in a variety of administrative environments, doing all kinds of things over the years. I have worked alongside lawyers, directors, clerical staff, business owners,...I have spent time working/volunteering at race tracks (motor racing), as well as at musical, equestrian, sailing and other events.
I thoroughly enjoy my retirement and am constantly finding activities that fill my days to overflowing. RVing is fulfilling my desire to travel.and a small motorhome seems to be filling the bill.
Love animals, especially dogs and horses, but no longer have any pets.
No real experience yet with boondocking, but it is one way I hope to travel this year. I am sure it will bring me into contact with RVers of all kinds, and I hope I will be able to add something to the hosts.
Born London, England, now make my base in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. This year I have found it difficult to be forced to spend half the year outside the U.S. as that is where I have so far found new RV friends. Hopefully, I will be able to spend next summer doing good stuff in Canada, as I meet more RVers in that part of the world.

Wantok is a very quiet guest, it’s like she isn’t there.
Lovely lady and experienced RV’er. Unobtrusive but friendly. The day of arrival we sat and chatted over a glass of wine and some munchies. Great stories and experiences worth hearing. You are welcome back at any time.
Wantok is soooo quiet and doesn’t take a lot of space. It’s like she’s not there, have a great summer.
While we were away travelling, it was reassuring to have Wantok keep an eye on the place
Wantok stayed with us for a second time this summer on her way thru. Always a pleasure to host and visit with.
This was my first experience as a host and I enjoyed meeting Wantok - first for coffee, then secondly, when she came to stay. Patricia is quiet and has a sparkle in her eyes, and is the perfect guest. You can welcome Patricia without hesitation.
Happy to host you anytime. Great communication and super quiet. Happy travels!
This lovely guest asked to stay two nights at Cowster Side Lot - Aylmer.
We were pleased to be able to provide a safe haven for the visit and perform a book exchange for our reading pleasure.
Be safe; have fun; don't hurt anyone!
A wonderful guest who we were able to accommodate a little earlier than our "preferred" season and for an additional night. She is very quiet and self sufficient so we were glad when we had a chance to chat with her in the afternoons. If we have the opportunity to host her again we would not hesitate. Happy continued travels!
Wanton was a perfect guest! Enjoyed meeting her and getting to know her. Follow the warmth! Til we meet again. Safe travels
All of our guest have been great people and wantok was no exception, she was very interesting and we had a good visit . She spent two nights with us could have stayed as long as she wanted. Looking forward to seeing her next year if she comes this way.
Wantok ended up visiting for 2 nights due to another hosts cancellation. Had a great visit over tea one evening. She was a perfect guest, respectful of our property and a joy to visit with. We would welcome her back anytime when in the area.
Très bonne première expérience! Nous avons aimé vous connaître!
