I travel when I can but usually alone. Now I've slowed down a bit and find a companion to share experiences with is something special that I long for. It would be a pleasure to meet someone that felt the same. We could get to know each other while enjoying the travel.

I do not pretend to be an angel. I enjoy my wine in the evening and an occasional toke off my Vape...gave up nicotine a long time ago. I'm a naturist that lived the lifestyle for many years and still enjoy laying in the sun or an occasional sauna.

Easy does it as I stroll through life. You will find me chasing the Sun...and the warmth it radiates. I have supported myself all my life as an entrepreneur and though successful, I no longer enjoy the “cash flow” I once did. My low maintenance standard of living affords me to live in Mexico and Arizona while traveling a bit in the USA as well as some far off place I've never been on occasion. It doesn't enable me to be as generous as I once was nor do I depend on others for their generosity. I seldom stay in hotels but mostly with SERVAS,Couch-surfers, friends, Hostels, Pensions, etc.

My sexual interests are not as strong as they once were...Prostate Cancer and radiation changed that a bit. I still have those desires but needless to say, the passion is more subtle than before. Afternoon Delight is more appealing than an “all niter”

I am cancer free! I walk slower and have intermittent claudation in my legs. Religion does little for me though I respect and honor others that find meaning in their faith. My faith lies in the unseen power behind Nature and within all of us that inhabit this Universe. I give respect to those who don't Complain, Criticize or Compare. We all do a bit but I try to make a concerted effort to accept everyone as an equal with no agenda...just enjoy life! I sleep naked and love to cuddle. I invite you to join me.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

The date slipped by unnoticed– my wife had to remind me that it’s been just over a year now since TCE went live. A year of surprises and disappointments, of slow but steady growth, and some very rewarding interactions with TCE members.


I haven’t posted anything on my blog recently, because hardly any members are making use of the feature, and I didn’t want all the posts to be from me. Truth be told, the blog is only one of several features that a lot of time and money went into the development of, which are being basically ignored by users.


So it has been a year of learning for me– learning how users actually interact with the site, learning what needs to be fixed in the features they do use, learning what other features might serve their needs better. After nearly bankrupting myself getting the site up in the first place, I haven’t been able to do much more than fix the really serious issues, but slowly I am getting to the point where I’ll be able to introduce some real improvements.


And, hopefully, begin to earn some money back from the site. After having to abandon the idea of only paid memberships, it has been a bit of a puzzle how I am going to make any revenue from my investment. One of the first things coming on stream will be a travel book store. That  had been part of the original plan, just deferred, but I have now moved that up to active development and we should be seeing it go live in a few weeks.


Numerous previous Travel Chums members have asked for a bulletin board like TC had, and though our efforts to reproduce that have failed so far, we are going to put another push on that to see if a solution can be found. Larger profile photos is another frequently-requested feature which will make an appearance soon. We will be working on a long list of other improvements as well.


Through it all, I have so much appreciated the helpful feedback and kind messages from members who have been making use of the site. Many of you have been successful in finding compatible travel partners, for one-time or ongoing travel, and that makes me happy. Enjoy your travels!

Am looking for a femal companion to avoid single costs to take either a Russian river cruise on May 12th or do a Germany and/or Greece tour in May.  Like escorted tours as I find everyone is in Europe now and the tour guides get you by the lines and give you a great deal of information.  Have been using Gate1Travel and find their prices the best and the tours good and interesting.

Anyone interested in joining me on my travels as I'm open to other parts of the world too contact me.

I am spending a month in New Zealand from early February to early March 2014 and looking for a female traveling companion.  I would like to either rent a shared campervan or car and spend most of the time driving and hiking, with some time in larger cities, especially Auckland.


I'm flexible, easy going, fun to travel with (I'm told).  Let me know if you're interested
