About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Work hard, play hard. One day at a time!

ABOUT ME

My husband and I have 4 teenagers, Only 1 is still at home the rest are off to college most of the year. I love animals and have a wide assortment of pets. I like meeting people. I've traveled all over the country but I don't get to go as often as I'd like. Now that the kids are older I thought it was time to see how this couch surfing would work. Hoping to make a few new friends while introducing them to our beautiful home town of Loveland, Colorado located at the foot of Rocky Mountain National Park.

PHILOSOPHY

Family first, dogs second. Question is, are Beagles dogs or family?

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Someone recently asked me "What do you get out of it?... C/S?" It's first and foremost a cultural exchange. Well, you get the satisfaction of knowing you are helping travelers and the pleasure of making new friends . I'm in this to meet new and interesting people. So far we have made new friends from Canada, Poland, Denmark, and a few closer to home! Bobby Valentine even braved the rough & ready western town to play a free concert on my porch. It's great fun!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I couch surfed before they had a name like that for it, while traveling through the New England area many years ago. I loved meeting new people. I always invite my friends and relatives to stay. The best time of the day for visiting is over coffee in the morning and telling stories at the end of the evening.
