Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We are always open to hosting travelers coming through town when we can. We have met amazing people through this network that have helped inspire us in our own adventures. We also enjoy the feeling of having local friends all over the world when we travel and love have the inside perspective.

Many, many interests. Some to note: travel (duh), history, geocaching, hiking, climbing, camping and fishing. We also enjoy growing my own food (as much as we can in our short growing season).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hard to choose just one thing... caving in Belize was pretty amazing.

Having a mountain to enjoy on a sunny day with no one else but your family around is also pretty amazing.

Teach, Learn, Share

Isn't that what life is all about... ours are.

Teach: Want to learn to juggle?
Learn: Can you teach us something in another language?
Share: Can we share a bottle of wine?
