My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a pacifist, a vegetarian, a non-smoker, a Green Party activist and childfree by choice. I am concerned about overpopulation, sustainable economics, human rights, American imperialism, and proportional representation voting systems.

For my job, I promote local cultural, artistic, and community events in Denver. I get around by foot, bicycle or public transportation. I sometimes go for longer bicycle rides and I enjoy hiking, backpacking and mountaineering.

On April Fools Day, 2005, I made an announcement on the mountaineering website "Fourteenerworld" in a discussion forum on participants' outdoor adventure plans for 2005. I announced that I was planning to quit my job, move out of my apartment, put most of my possessions in a storage unit, and spend the summer climbing 200 Colorado "thirteeners" (mountains between 13,000 and 14,000 feet) by myself. I called this the "Homeless on the Range Expedition." I would live out of my tent and my backpack while I engaged in a really intense summer of solo mountaineering and backpacking. I announced it on April Fools Day because I wanted to see if people would take the idea seriously or not. And I wasn't sure if I really would or could achieve this goal. As it turned out, I successfully completed the "Homeless on the Range Expedition," and it was the adventure of a lifetime.

While I out there doing the Homeless on the Range Expedition, I read Edward Abbey's book "Desert Solitaire." My adventure was "Mountain Solitaire." I read that Edward Abbey made a habit out of spending half of the year alone in the wilderness and the other half of the year immersed in the urban life of New York City. From that time on, I developed a similar pattern of spending part of each year on extended mountaineering or long distance backpacking adventures and the rest of the year promoting local cultural events in Denver.

In 2007, I became the 16th person to finish climbing all of the 637 Colorado mountains over 13,000 feet.

In 2008, I thru hiked the 2,180 mile Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine.

In 2009, I backpacked the 480 mile Colorado Trail.

In 2011, I thru hiked the 2,660 mile Pacific Crest Trail.

In the spring of 2013, I thru hiked the 800 mile Arizona Trail.

In September 2013, I finished backpacking the 3,100 mile long Continental Divide Trail. I hiked sections on this trail in 2009, 2010, 2012, and 2013. This also marked my completion of the "Triple Crown" of long distance walking in the United States which includes the Appalachian and Pacific Crest Trails as well as the Continental Divide Trail.

From November 2013 to January 2014, I walked more than 1,600 kilometers around New Zealand, mostly on the Te Araroa Trail.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
While I was sitting at a cafe on the last day of summer, I drafted my "New Season's Resolutions" for making it through fall and winter in the city.

Prime Directive: Be more bold.

General Guidelines:
1) Participate in at least one social event per week.
2) Attend at least one cultural event per week
3) Participate in at least one outdoor athletic event per week.
4) Spend time with at least one friend other than a co-worker at least once a week.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: 1984 and Animal Farm by George Orwell, Ecotopia and Ecotopia Emerging by Ernest Callenbach, America 2014: An Orwellian Tale by "Dawn Blair," The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, Last Chance to See, and Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency by Douglas Adams, and Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert Heinlein. I enjoy Harry Turtledove's alternative history science fiction novels like the "Worldwar" series which starts with an alien invasion during the middle of World War Two, and "The Guns of the South" about time traveling South African terrorists who provide Uzis to the Confederate Army during the Civil War. I have read and enjoyed all of Dan Brown's novels. His latest book "Inferno" was not his best writing, but I appreciated seeing a best selling novel that reflected my views on human overpopulation.

Movies: Kumare, V for Vendetta, Pleasantville, Groundhog Day, Avatar, Spiderman I and II, Galaxy Quest, Jumanji, Man of the Year.

Shows: Walking Dead, Dr. Who, Lost, Dexter, Once Upon a Time, Being Human, Falling Skies, Stargate SG-1. I almost never watch television as it's being broadcast, but I will go to the library to check out seasons of television shows on DVD.

Music: Celtic, folk, classic rock, bluegrass, reggae, world music, satirical music like Weird Al Yankovic or Tom Lehrer. I like Phil Ochs' protest songs.

Food: Anything vegetarian. I like to go to all-you-can-eat buffets. I like Ethiopian, Indian, Thai, and Italian food.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Freedom, rebellion, mountains, wilderness, my bicycle, and a towel.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Should I keep trying to met women to date, or just say the hell with it, give up on looking for a relationship, and start planning my longest walk ever?

My longest backpacking trip so far was 2,660 miles in five months. I'm thinking about either starting a 5,400 mile walk on the Eastern Continental Trail from Florida to Newfoundland the first week of January or a starting a 10,350 mile walk in late April including back to back to back to back thru hikes of the Pacific Crest Trail, the Appalachian Trail, the Pinhoti Trail, the Florida Trail, the Continental Divide Trail, and (Canada's) Great Divide Trail.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I go from stool to stool in singles bars hoping to get lucky, but there's never any gum under any of them. (Emo Philips)

Sometimes I spend my Friday nights spinning gold into straw.

A typical Saturday might consist of doing laundry, eating honey vanilla frozen Greek yogurt for breakfast, attending an Ethiopian coffee ceremony, listening to live guitar performances, pugil stick fighting, chicken dancing, doing the hokey pokey, and having a rather large drunk man fall down on me in the street.

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.

If you can lead me into Temptation, because I couldn't find it on Mapquest.

I plan to shut down this profile within the next few days. I have set up a new profile under the username "Walk500MoreMiles" and started over from scratch with the matching questions.
