About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To Meet, host, and Learn about People from Around the World

ABOUT ME

Raised in Montana. US Navy in Vietnam. 48 years in Reno. Divorced with two children and five grandkids. Active in the casino business. I live about 30 minutes from Lake Tahoe. I play golf and ski. I have a 5 bedroom , 6 bathroom house. We'd be able to visit Lake Tahoe, casinos, sporting events, go to dinner, hiking museums, shooting , Virginia City and/or check out special events in the Reno/Tahoe area. I enjoy good conversation and learning things about the various countries that CS come from. I still work and I generally only have time to travel around on a weekend.

PHILOSOPHY

I'm easy going and like to stay active. Intelligent conversations and learning new things about people's experiences is always interesting to me.

And appreciate all the CS many letters, texts, and calls staying in touch!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

It would be raising a great family. But more specific to CS I have met and made friends with a couple hundred Couchsurfers in fact a participated in one couple's marriage.

Teach, Learn, Share

All of the CS I have hosted are younger, actually much younger than I, but I love their energy and enthusiasm. There are lots of activities as hiking, skiing, golfing and enjoying the beach at Lake Tahoe. Some CS like to check out downtown, and the casinos.. I have taken CS to baseball games, basketball games, a shooting range, and football games most for the first time. Also I have hosted a lot of students who are coming to the area on J1 visas and I am very familiar with where to go for their work cards, not to mention the shopping they all want to get done:).
