I'm married, and a dad, with two mostly self-sufficient boys. Jean is my wife. We met in 1977, married in '89. She travels with me sometimes on work trips, and always on pleasure trips. We live in the Twin Cities in Minnesota. I sleep better on a couch than a hotel room. So even when it's on company dime, I check airbnb, and other owner-rental sites first for accommodations. When I travel, if I can I bring a bicycle or rent one. It's my preferred mode of travel, particularly in cities. I rarely meet a person I don't like.
