About Me


Travel is plagued by rogues, rorts and resorts. Somewhere there has to be the real, valuable, and pleasurable sense of being in another time and place. We love to share our beach and wines.


From the backyard to the outback, I love the outdoors and Australian bush. Fishing, gardening, ecology, the beach, sport (Lacrosse), growing native plants, writing stuff and listening to music.
Heidi reads, relaxes, watches the family sport Lacrosse, gardens.


Give your children roots and wings.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Appreciating the stresses of travelling, we like guests to relax, and we can enhance the experience with local knowledge.


Hosted and surfed. We understand that travellers' need "stress rest", and hopefully we can diffuse the impact.

Music, Movies, and Books

too many, but let's try Tolkein's Lord of the Rings and Bilbo's poem.....
"The road goes ever on and on, down from the door where it began;
Now far ahead the road has gone , and I must follow if I can;
Pursuing it with weary feet, until it meets some larger way,
Where many paths and errands meet, and whither then? I cannot say.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Been to the Crazy Horse Monument, South Dakota

Teach, Learn, Share

Don't die wondering or regretting, or not living an experience.
Do it;

Regret, guilt, and anger will bury you.
Forgiveness lets you and others live.

A great experience shared is value doubled
