I am a well seasoned traveler since I was a teenager and exploring new places or sometimes revisiting old ones with a new perspective continues to give me great joy. It naturally is the people factor too of whom I meet along the way as the journey encompasses more than a destination. I travel with my partner John( yup we still camp in a tent even in Denali NP in AK) or with a female friend these days. In my 20's I tended to travel alone and I can assure I have no lack of stories to be sure. I am an artist /educator and am a responsible guest with a sense of humor, enjoy good conversation on a myriad of topics and try to roll with the punches. I am a youthful almost 60. Hope this gives you a bit of an idea of me.
