I am local and my husband Dan is a Bay Area transplant. We both enjoy hosting guests and sharing our love of the Sierra Nevadas and Yosemite. We still work fulltime as the owners and operators of Dan’s Auto Center.
I love to hike and explore, Dan prefers horsepower to get around. If you ask, Dan would be more than happy to show you his collection of cars in the garage. Quilting is my passion, which is evident in my decorating style.
Being self-employed, we don’t have a chance to do much traveling. But for a quick get-away in the summer, Mammoth Lakes is our favorite destination. The trip through Yosemite and over Tioga Pass is amazing! Carmel by the Sea is another place we love to go for a weekend trip.
So far, our motto when traveling has been "hurry up and have fun". Someday we hope to slow it down a bit, stay a little longer and take time to really enjoy the sites and get to know the locals to get the true flavor of the places we visit.
For now, we will settle for traveling vicariously through you. Tell us the highlights of your trip in our journal and please put a pin on our map!
