Who am I?
Seasoned Traveler with Friends
I have traveled many different ways. Early in life, and again later in life, I delivered motorhomes from manufacturers to dealers all over the US and Canada. I even drove a few to Anchorage, Alaska! I was also a tour bus driver in Fairbanks, Alaska for a summer, and enjoyed that a lot! After driving the tour bus for a summer, I was a Tour Manager for many companies. I took many groups on vacations to places all over the US.
Being a tour manager, I also have a network of hundreds of tour manager friends. I love talking with them to compare notes and compare different travel tips. I also love some of the stories I hear, you wouldn’t believe some of the things tour guests do!
I have a passion for exploring, but maybe not as the traditional exploration. I have an uncontrollable curiosity that I just want to know more about some places. The weirder, the better. I use the hashtag #JustExploreIt to help inspire and motivate people to get out and explore the world, from as close as your neighborhood, to the other side of the world, just explore it.
Driving across the US is one of my favorite things to do. I have driving Route 66 more times than I can count. Of course, I did it on a timetable, so I wasn’t always able to stop and see all of the cool stuff. My goal is to be able to do that!
Even though a road trip is my favorite way to go, I also love traveling overseas. I generally go to Asia, and really enjoy Thailand. I have many places I want to go, and I will Just Explore It, meaning I intend on exploring the world as much as I can.
