About Me

NOTE: We are NOT in NY - in fact we are almost 3 hours drive from there. If your request says you want to see NY I will just say NO! CURRENT MISSION Plan my next big trip! ABOUT ME Like lots of different sports - tennis, basketball, hiking, biking, kayaking, skiing, and enjoy travel. PHILOSOPHY Let's all promote world peace and harmony, one couch at a time! My wife and I are both fully vaccinated.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Have now surfed quite a few couches, and had a number of visitors as well, and it has definitely changed my life for the better.

Had a lot of fun with my couchsurfing experiences so far. Always surprised we don't get more requests! Try us - you'll like us!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

most recent amazing thing was seeing Machu Picchu - totally indescribable. I think I'll add to that exploring the South Island of New Zealand - what a wonderful place filled with wonderful people! And my granddaughter, grandsons and my kids are pretty amazing too!

Teach, Learn, Share

Well, I'm always happy to share my sports activities, from biking (road and mountain) to basketball, tennis, racquetball, soccer, ultimate frisbee, skiing, etc. My job is developing custom software, but while I don't mind talking about it or offering advice, when I'm not working I really want to think about something else.
