About Me

CURRENT MISSION

happy GO lucky

ABOUT ME

I am a quiet, creative, amiable person constantly amazed by this strange world we live in. I love to grow, make, and fix things. I am happiest sitting at the dinner table with good people enjoying a meal made with love.

PHILOSOPHY

The path that is already a path is not the path.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Right now I'm riding the wave of hospitality. Come July I will be settled in Portland and will hopefully be able to return the hospitality I have received.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I rode my ol' ten speed Centurion from Boston, across Mass, up Vermont to Montreal, and back down around the coast of Maine. When my planning was not so good I sneakily slept on baseball fields, front yards, cemeteries, creek beds, etc. When my planning was better I slept on cozy couches in Boston, Burlington, and Montreal thanks to this website.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Teach, Learn, Share

Depending on our time restraints perhaps we can make sourdough pancakes, sourdough pizza, or sourdough bread? I'm eager to learn about beer brewing and distilling.
