We were workaway volunteers on our 18 month European travels, now we host. We are a kind respectful, affirming, adult family that believes in healthy happy life styles. We hope to host a variety of humans and learn something special from each one. Gardening, maintaining trails, creating a welcoming environment for our many guests, and making continual improvements to our home are the types of things we are looking for help with. We have dogs cats and chickens. In the summer we are quite busy hosting travelers and getting families outside. We live on 5 1/2 acres. We live in a region that is full of year around outdoor activities. Mt hood national forest as well as the Columbia gorge and Oregon beaches are popular destinations. Sandy is a town 45 minutes from the fun city of Portland.
