About Me

NOTE: If you have been vaccinated, I might be able to host you. I have been vaccinated.

It is important to know that I have a Labrador retriever living with me. If you re not comfortable with dogs then it might not work.

CURRENT MISSION

My mission is to have fun while exploring the BC majestic outdoors.

ABOUT ME (read carefully)

I WANT MORE THAN JUST PROVIDE A PLACE TO SLEEP TO MY GUESTS. IF YOU ARE ONLY LOOKING FOR A PLACE TO STAY; I MIGHT NOT BE YOUR BEST CHOICE AS :

I want to spend time with my guests, have the opportunity to socialize and to find out about their adventure. I believe; we will all be getting something amazing out of the experience. (OF COURSE I DON T EXPECT TO SPEND EVERY MINUTES OF THE DAY TOGETHER; YOU WILL BE ABLE TO GO EXPLORE ON YOUR OWN AS WELL).

I am a social butterfly, I love meeting new people and help them discover new things. I love taking people to great outdoor places on hikes. I would love to meet people travelling and show them a good time. I could even drive them around in my Jeep Wrangler Rubicon or on my motorcycle (I own a nice Harley Davidson).

If you can afford a few dollars for gas then we can go explore more and further away. I host a great number of people so your help with the cost of gas , would be appreciated. If you cannot, I would still be glad to take your around.

I do not drink any alcohol but you are welcome to have a beer or a glass of wine with your meal to relax at the end of the day in my home.

I am retired have lots of time on my hands. I would love to have the opportunity to take couch surfers on multi day hikes in our beautiful mountains on Vancouver Island. If you would like me to take you on one of these great adventures; let me know in advance and let s see if I can make it happens for you.

I am an outdoor Host on the Victoria Outdoor Club and I host numerous trips every year. You can look at our Hiking club by following the following link:
