We, Dave & Marti, are a retired 60ish year old couple, though we certainly don't feel that age! We moved to CT last summer after living for over 25 years in Milwaukee. Since we moved we can no longer host because we are renting a home with our daughter and son-in-law. We returned to Milwaukee 6 years ago after serving 2+ years in the Peace Corps in South Africa. Since our service we are even more conscious of the waste of resources and the materialism that abounds in the US, so we do our part to help fight those, and joining airbnb is one more way to share what we have with others. Collaborative consumption in its many forms is the direction in which we should be heading. We feel we are doing this in a big way now by sharing a home with extended family.
Bicycling is a big part of our lives. We cycle around town on our city bikes, for commuting and errands; our vacations are usually a bicycle tour somewhere. We have taken self-supported bike trips across the southern US, from Key West to Milwaukee, and from Los Angeles to the tip of the Baja peninsula. On these trips we sometimes use Airbnb accommodations, but mostly we stay with Warmshowers hosts or camp. Cycling is also a big part of our exercise regimen.
We enjoy meeting people from all walks of life, and we think you will find us very easy to get along with. We are pretty laid-back and don't sweat the small stuff. We love good food, beer and wine, and chillin' with a good book.
