Do you know or have you hosted this user?

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.

Skills & Expertise to Share

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.

Wantok's Pets

Love animals, especially dogs and horses, but no longer have any pets.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

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.

Wantok's Hometown

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.
