My name is Ben, and I live in the beautiful green mountains of Burlington, Vermont. I love to do anything regarding the outdoors, but my main passion is in rock climbing. I'm also fond of woodworking with traditional tools; I am very handy with most home-repair jobs and I am certified in Permaculture design. I have a lot of respect for people who try to do things themselves and who enjoy crafts, and teaching. I am quite energetic and funny, but am also very respectful and sensitive towards those who would be generous enough to host me!
