I've done more in 27 years than many people do their entire lives. I live to have no regrets. I don't want to be the 45 year old middle manager wondering where my life went, where'd my youth go. I'd rather be the 45 year old seasonal worker who disappears to god knows where for the winter and always has a story to tell, a beer for a friend, and food for someone that needs it.
I've surfed in a Native village in Alaska. I've worked on political campaigns and in fast food. I've driven across the country... three times. I've driven from Anchorage to Tijuana. I've skinny dipped in 10 degree weather in the Gulf of Alaska. I've run around naked on highways. I've been to a dozen different countries including Iraq and Iceland. I've spent nights drinking myself stupid with Senators and other nights doing the same with drug dealers and learned plenty from both.
In the next year and a half I'm running a marathon in the Sahara, spending a month hosteling around Europe and trying to do another deployment with the Marine Corps. I run barefoot in the winter.
Some people think I'm gay. Some people are just jealous. Who cares about gay and straight? Don't Ask Don't Tell was the worst policy since segregation.
If it involves the water then I'm going to be involved with it. The only time I've ever lived away from the ocean I almost died. That might have been because it was Iraq but I like to think it was the ocean.
Really now, must I go on? I bet you hope not.
Did I mention that I'm 6'8?
I am fantastic, cocky, and unpredictable.
