Do you know or have you hosted this user?

My wife and I have retired from the State of Mississippi and have been full time RVing since 2010. She retired in 2004. She has a Bachelor of Science in Management degree from Belhaven University in Jackson, MS. I retired in 2010 from the City of Ridgeland Fire Department (1980-1983 volunteer, 1983-2010 career) at the rank of Assistant Chief.

We have volunteered at state parks, national parks, national fish and wildlife refuges, and Escapees RV Club for Escapade Parking Staff (2011), Escapade parking co-chairs (2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018)

We are lifetime members of Escapees (#101417) and current members of FMCA and RVillage.

Great guests

What a very nice couple. They are very well-traveled and we loved hearing about where they have been and volunteered. They had a short stay with us and we'd love to learn more. They are definitely welcome to stay with us again. Wish them all the best.
