Since Jul 2009

65+ year old male

Key Largo, Florida

Retired from Army and Federal Govt. Former university Adjunct, dog rehabilitator, historian and blacksmith. Once in hospitality and other customer service. Avid traveler. Love history, scenery, wildlife, and travel some seem to find adventurous (e.g. zip-lining (despite fear of heights), traveling off-grid (where cell phones don't roam), etc.. I like to see America (Not just what you see from an Interstate) and meet people (Not just those in tourist service - though they can be interesting too, if you get them off script). I thoroughly research where I want to go. It does not adversely impact the spontaneity of the trip, but it gives assurance that disappointments will be few and far between. That would be why many of my reviews give above average ratings. I do not use a single standard for ratings. I rate the place for what it is (I like many budget places but I do not expect 5 stars. However, 5 star places are expected to live up their reputations
