Обо мне

CURRENT MISSION
Traveling for the month of July and first week of August with my 2 kids 9&15. It's been really busy in Reading PA lately. I've lost track of how many surfers I've hosted this year. Met some great people on big adventures: traveling around the world, bicycling cross country and I was very happy to be part of their journeys by hosting them. Now it's my turn to hit the road. Looking forward to meeting a few cs hosts in the pacific northwest.

ABOUT ME

Enjoy, no, LOVE to travel. Just haven't been doing enough of it due to businesses, family, etc. Divorced 6 years ago, just quit my job, and looking forward to the freedom to start traveling again - mostly by motorcycle. Couch surfing sounds like a great alternative to lugging a bunch of camping gear around with the added benefit of meeting like-minded people. When I was 16, I zig zagged around Europe with a friend - sleeping on overnight trains and sight seeing during the days. My favorite memories were all the friendly Europeans we met that helped us out on our 6 week trip. The "Vagabonding" book by Ed Buyren (sp?) was our bible. Language was never an issue - we just used other forms of communication and understood each other perfectly. That was in 1977. The world has changed a lot since then. I think the couch surfing concept is a great start to getting the world back on the right track.
I have 2 wonderful kids, and this past July I drove Rt 66 with my 11 year old son.

PHILOSOPHY

Life life in the present and cherish the memories you make - the future will come, no need to worry about it.(Probably why I'm divorced)

Что привело меня на Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I will offer my couch in the great city of Reading, PA to all in the couch surfing community. It's a small city by east coast standards but has a lot to offer: One of the best Jazz Fests in the country, the largest community art centers in the country (Goggleworks), beautiful parks and bike paths, Awesome (rated by my son) minor league ball park, and a Pagoda (really!)on the mountain over looking the city. Come Visit!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Back in the 70's in Europe a few times - Way better than youth hostels and train station waiting rooms.

Классная вещь, которую я сделал(-а)

Saw Haileys Comet... Looking back, I guess it's pretty amazing that when I was 16, I travelled around Europe for 6 weeks with my 15 year old friend - just us, our backbacks, and all the great people we met along the way.

Учу, учусь, делюсь опытом и информацией

I have a half a lifetime of experiences, hobbies, skills, and interests - and half a lifetime still to learn

Чем я могу поделиться с хостами

It seems that everyone visiting Reading wants to see the Amish people that live about 20 minutes away. I've driven a half a dozen surfers to that area and in the process learned through my foreign guests more about the Amish than I would have on my own.
Tell me what you want to see, and I'll try and make it happen.

Где я побывал(-а)

Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, England, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Mexico, Morocco, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland
