It is a perfect home base for hiking and other outdoor activities in the Forest. Our home away from home for this weekend is a lovely private rental.

Born and raised in "Small Town," Illinois, I spent my childhood dreaming of traveling to more interesting places than the farming communities surrounding me. In high school my opportunity finally came. I traveled across the UK with a People to People student ambassador program. While in college I had the priveledge of studying in England for a semester and working at an archaeological field school in Israel. However, those trips were just the beginning. My goal is visit every state in the US and every country around the world. I can't wait to pursue more travel experiences with new frends made through JoinMyTrip!
