About Me


Use Austin as a "HUB" for launching expeditions North and Soutn of the Border.


I have been called a laid back (type former 70's hippie and still hippie at heart), who enjoys a diverse range or activities.


After being in the corporate world for a few decades I decided several years ago to "re-take" my life and stop allowing life to control me and have me control my life!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I only found the site today and hope to host and be hosted.


Over the years I've slept on floors, garages, cars, beaches, forests, couches, porches, barns, and a Myan Ruin!


family, travel, spur of the moment road trips, horticulture/gardening, hiking, biking, snorkeling/swimming, picnics, fishing, Flea markets, auctions, garage sales,
exploring Central Texas and all of Mexico, healthy foods, dining out on occasion, BBQ, music of the world, romance, spirituality, WHEW!
And I am just getting started...lol
