About Me


Travel outside of the box


I love meeting people especially in out of the box sort of travel...side roads....hostels small towns.
I've been to Mexico (Baja) Belize, Canada and Japan a bit of reasonable risk taking with a plan.
Why not go out on a limb? That is where the good fruit is!


There is good is all, there is evil in all strive for the good
Work hard play hard have fun....forgive quickly...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Meeting sharing laughing travelling all ways to shae in the frame work we call Couch Surfing. I live in a rural area in Washington State so not many folks make the trek there for a couch.
I travel a bit for work and offer my “Couch” on those occasions, I have met many good people and shared many joyful times. A friend in Japan said to me “you meet someone Couch Surfing, but you leave a friend The idea is beautiful, though for me it is not about t he “Couch” it is about the people.


Couch surfing is not about the “couch” it is about the people, to share ones home and space and one’s heart…to learn from a new friend from their sharing. Couch surfing is a way to gently remove the façade of our culture and see each other as people with much more in common than the differences.


Backpacking.....Road Trips....Politics..places Llonely Planet" has yet to write about..community service

Music, Movies, and Books

History World Link TV...also a bit of a Political junkie
