House Sitter in Cedar Rapids, Iowa

I'm an
After a career consulting in IT, I decided to semi-retire and discover the country I have spent 35 years in, yet never saw. I sold my house and bought a camper van. My son is in college and I am unattached, although I am making new friends every day. I am now traveling stopping here and there for a housesitting and/or petsitting job as an excuse to discover a new part of the US. If you are seeing this profile, I am either in your area already or on my way there.. As of May 30, 2022, I am in Florida and planning to head to Northern Virginia in mid-June. I will only be there 10 days or so. My next destination is Cedar Rapids, IA where I will spend the summer, possibly up to Thanksgiving before driving back south to Florida. I am reliable and trustworthy. In fact, I held a clearance with the Federal government my entire career, up to my last federal contract in 2018. I am also considerate and careful with other people's property as I know what it's like to have strangers in your home. From 2011 to 2017, I participated in home exchanges whereby I opened my home to French families to stay, while my family and I stayed at their house in France. I am almost 60 and young enough to enjoy traveling, cooking and sleeping in my van, with my rescue dog: Jade is a 10 year old Staffordshire terrier, a doll who loves the front passenger seat, whether I am driving or not. She is totally socialized, loves people, and is playful with other dogs. She keeps her distance from cats... I don't mind them if they don't trigger a runny nose (not all do). As for plants, the best I can do is provide you with pictures of my garden in Alexandria. I am naturally open-minded and actually enjoy differences among people. What's a better way to enjoy or reconcile these differences than by visiting other places?
