About Me

I have a young pit bull/German shepherd dog, named after my favorite basketball player.😁
I was born and raised in a small shit-kickin Texas town, and despite being raised in a Mormon family, I grew up to be a heretical conservationist with an obsession for knowledge and causes to save the planet lol!

perpetually expand your horizons...and to each their own except when their stupidity affects or rubs off on others...otherwise, be ridickorous as tigger would say!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I haven't been able to participate in years, but now I'm finally able to host. Hopefully it brings me good karma I can use to manifest my own couchsurfing desires:)

I'm also fairly knowledgeable about traveling and experiencing the NorCal outdoors and Sacramento region, so I'm happy to help visitors make some good memories without too many headaches. I may even join you and help organize a day trip if I'm invited and available.😊

I've only stayed with a couple people a long time ago, before Air B n B turned this into a business. I had impressive experiences and want to finally reciprocate.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I saw a rare sub-species of (Tsavo) lions mating on a safari in Kenya.
To hell with just one! 😜...
I've also been to Tomales Bay in Marin County twice (a day trip and once camping overnight) for night time kayaking to see the bioluminescence😁

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm also an open book and information sponge, so I'm glad to share knowledge about anything, especially cool adventures in NorCal.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I'm happy to reciprocate with assisting with some house chores, food, and/or cooking, not to mention sharing my Sacramento home in exchange. As a homeowner, I know how having a little help with things around the house can be more valuable than rent money!
