ABOUT ME

I don't use the dishwasher, I really enjoy hand washing dishes!

Hello and welcome to my Couchsurfing page. I hope I can create an inspiring couch surfing experience for you.

I am currently working a lot in the Local Southern California Mountains and High Deserts. I am currently hosting visiting Couchsurfers in Joshua Tree, CA. Tent and campfire provided!

If you are visiting the southwest :: CA, AZ, NV, UT feel free to leave me a message. I can suggest lots to do around town.

I enjoy meeting new people and learning about different cultures and worldwide history. Especially when it relates to food and culinary arts =)

I donate my blood for those who need it.

I am a registered marrow donor. Hoping to make a change in someone's life one day.

How do I help the homeless? 99 cent store allows me to feed many.

I support and donate to our National Parks across the USA

I support and donate a lot of my time to various Children Hospitals across the USA

I do my best to reduce any carbon footprint possible from an efficient eco friendly approach.

Always Smile =)

PHILOSOPHY

Help those in need by sharing and learning.

Go ahead and take a step out of your comfort zone =)

At some point in time do what you want, not what you need.

Dean Karnazes said it best, "Just GO."

Give it your ALL.

Wherever you are and whatever you do, leave the place cleaner than you found it

Don't just aspire to make a living, Aspire to make a difference - DW

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Sharing is caring

- Travel stories and route planning for your road trip.

- I love to bake, cook and share the yuminess.

- Want to try Letterboxing? Let's find some!

- I can teach Majong and Pusoy Dos/ Big 2 (card game involving 13 cards) and Texas Hold'em

- Exchange Languages (Mandarin and Spanish)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

It's been about 8 years now and I have to say I learned so much from couch surfing. The sharing and exchange within different cultures are amazing. I am lucky to meet so many people from all over the world and enjoying all the great eats that come with it. I look forward to more positive experiences in the near future.

Interests

Can't stop exploring the unexplored.

An ongoing goal of 2016. Visit the volcano ranges of Eastern Sierras, backpack over the rim and camp inside the Crater. Care to join? Message me.

On my spare time I like to swim, mountain bike, trail run, tennis, hike, camp, backpack, snowboard, rock climb, card games, recharge my cranium at the local book store and Letterbox (almost like geocaching except with stamps and written notes).

Looking to learn more Japanese, Spanish, Portuguese and American Sign Language.

Learning a new cooking recipe, especially when it's passed down from family.

Music, Movies, and Books

Enjoy all music

Movies: I enjoy all movies especially action and suspense thriller

Books: Dean Karnazes :: Ultra-Marathon Man and RUN!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Exploring underground caves to summits at 14,494ft with amazing Sunrises and Sunsets.
