About Me

We live in California's Gold Country - foothills outside Yosemite National Park. Walking distance to the historic downtown area. We like meeting fellow travelers and hosting/offering suggestions for our local area.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

We'd love to meet likeminded humans on our travels who can give us suggestions on how to best to adventure in their neck of the woods. :-) My wife and I both work in education fields and love to travel, learn, and adventure!
