Something about ourselves
I am Gary, a 66 year old retired IT manager. Janice also worked in IT and retired in early 2012. We are avid gardeners and volunteers. We love to travel both with home exchanges and our 17 Ft Bigfoot trailer. We have done 11 exchanges to date and look forward to many more. Still lots of destinations on the bucket list.
