About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to explore the world around me and be helpful to people I meet along the way

ABOUT ME

I work at a retirement community in Germantown, TN where I am a repairman; I also volunteer at my church; and help take care of the animals we have at home; llamas, deer, peacocks... I like to get out and hike as much as possible and explore Memphis to learn more about the town I live in.

PHILOSOPHY

"Nobody who ever gave his best regretted it" - George S. Halas

"Do not be afraid of taking a chance. Remember that a broken watch is right at least twice a day." -Kemmons Wilson

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I surf and strive to be a good guest while surfing. Since I live with my parents with their blessing I can host as well. When at home I try to participate with local community in Memphis. I would also be more than happy to show visitors around when they come thru.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've met a number of people who live in Memphis, as well as people passing thru, and thru campouts with the Texas Adventures and Tennessee Adventurers groups

I've surfed a little as well in Winnipeg,MB; Fargo,ND; Nashville,TN; Murfreesboro,TN; Little Rock, AR; Reading, PA; New Orleans, LA; and Ocean Springs, MS

I also host a little.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

The Wieliczka Salt Mine near Krakow Poland is pretty cool. Also watching the sunrise over the Badlands of South Dakota on a clear February morning, watching the light paint the sky and illuminate that incredible landscape.
