As a kid, I was lucky enough to have parents who showed my brother and I nearly all of the US in our ugly orange & brown 1978 Dodge RV. Those were some of the greatest times of my life, and because of those travels, I continually seek to explore new locales. Most recently I visited Seattle & Mount Rainier, which was the perfect combination, as I am drawn equally to the peace of the outdoors and the electricity of urban centers. I live and work in the City of St. Louis, and nothing is more pressing to me than the revitalization of our cities... except maybe squeezing in a great hike!
I love to travel and wish I had all the money in the world to do so... but until then, I will be a clean, quiet, respectful, and helpful guest. My only request is a clean and quiet place to sleep. I need nothing fancy and would love to meet new people with different perspectives, interests, and of course, favorite hidden gems within their own cities.
My all time favorite destinations would have to be Boston, Mt. Rainier, Seattle, Florida Keys, Colorado, LA... truthfully, how can I have a favorite? You never know what the next trip will bring.
