About Me


To see all of our 35 Bucket-list destinations before we go over Niagara Falls in a boat.


We were recently married, have 8 kids between us (ages 7-24), and both have the love of travel and sharing new experiences. We hope to pass that passion onto our kids, and see many more places in the next 20-30, or 40 years. We have a bucket list of 35 places to see before we die and thought Couch surfing may help us do that. We love life and family and traveling. We also love traveling by jet ski and plan to ski the great lakes starting with Lake Huron and Erie in 2011. We have fun no matter where we go. Our "lottery winning" dream includes sailing the world with the kids. We don't sail yet but figure iof we won the lottery, we could learn quick!!


We believe that everyone should be nice to each other and that makes the world a happier place. At 50 and 43 years of age, we definitely know life is short and you do have to live life to its fullest.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We just learned about CS and are just trying to see what it has to offer and how we can participate. We look forward to the experience


Anything on the water including jet skiing to destinations, boating, kayaking,fishing, but travelling anywhere is by far our favorite.

Music, Movies, and Books

Diane just got a Kindle and loves reading just about anything. I read Grisham, Steven King, and others. Now I am reading about Great Lakes as we are planning this summers trip by jet ski.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

We survived a jet ski trip across Lake Erie after a bad and rough first day which we almost died. Being in the middle of the lake, with no land in sight, in the middle of a storm is a scary, yet invigorating feeling.
