About Me


to promote peace and good will to all peoples of the earth.


I work for my self, as a state license massage therapist,but i have gone part time because i have started 2 new business,,selling cedar log homes and solar heat collectors to heat homes with in winter time. So I have lots of free time to show you around.I live in the country on a 10 acre wooded lot screened by many trees. So if you want to see a movie or go shoping i can drive you to the city on some days of the week.


my personal philsophy is having no personal philsophy. lol. I like the teaching of Buddha, that is why I picked Siddhartha Gautama as my screen name. I do not see my self in the same LIGHT as him,,But I am sure he will not care i use his name . besides all the other names i wanted were taken lol.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have traveled to 24 countries,some of them many times, Japan 20 + times ect, and I have lived in a few. So it would be nice to host for a change.


This is my frist time with CouchSurfing. I found it by reading the World news online. So being a traveler i know what it is like,and would love to host kindred spirits.


My interest are rowing boats, Biking, hiking . I have a organic garden in the summer time. Traveling of course! lol.
