What makes me unique? I'm one of those people you would want with you at the end of Western civilization. If you were stranded in the middle of nowhere I could probably feed and entertain you. I'm easily entertained. I enjoy listening to the stories people have. Especially while sitting around a campfire with a glass of good wine. I have some stories of my own, and I can definitely hold up my end of a conversation. (On OKCupid I'm unique because I don't lie about my height, age or weight!)
I am active and keep in shape. I always will! (I gravitate towards girls who are thin or athletic.) I like skiing, kayaking, snowshoeing, hiking, swimming, scuba/abalone-diving, cooking, camping in all weather, reading and travel. I've had my pilots license for years now - I don't go as often as I'd like, but have been up recently to take friends flying over the Golden Gate. It's good for the soul. (As is surfing.) I have traveled more than your average bear. I have both lived and worked overseas. I can make myself understood in several languages. (Japanese, German, Spanish.)
I like big dogs and friendly cats. Horses, too, despite past injuries. In my yard you will find a birdfeeder for the cat and I to enjoy, an extensive year-round garden, a homemade chicken coop with some hens, a koi pond big enough to swim in and as many varieties of plant life as I could fit in.
I live in Concord and work in Pinole. I'm one of those folks that got mauled in the crash, but took the plunge last year and became a homeowner once again. I'll stay in or near the WC/Lafayette/Pleasant Hill/Concord/Martinez area - Due to the fact that I have two little girls much of the time. (Amicable relation with local ex-wife who lives in a great nearby school district.) I like fixer houses that need TLC, and now I have one. My permanent construction project... Feel free to ask me anything.
