We are desert dwellers who also love the NW and its greenness and lifestyle. We're a retired couple--doctor and computer programmer. Also active types who like to rock climb, primarily indoors, and bicycle/hike/camp. Love to cook and garden, drink great coffee, love dogs too. We have traveled widely including Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Patagonia, Canada, Thailand, New Zealand and Europe (Martin is Dutch-born).
We traded homes with a Portland, OR couple for 7 months and it was an amazing experience. We all enjoyed the experience and "playing house" in someone else's special place.
