Many people underestimate me... Have a vast knowledge of history,
and am quite knowledgeable on many other subjects, although many
times I'm dressed as if I just climbed out of a western film. I'm a
firm believer in being old fashioned and a gentleman. I have a
fondness for finer alcohols such as Bourbon, good beers, and
Scotch. I don't like to drink to get drunk, I prefer to enjoy what
I am drinking, and the company I am with when I do. You can make
your own judgment of me from what I have posted and if you have any
questions, feel free to ask. I'm a laid back person, and I don't
let life get to me normally. I try to enjoy it while I can, while
still being good and moral, since we don't have long on this Earth.
What I’m doing with my life
Going to college for history, will hopefully work as a museum
curator or researcher. Currently work in a factory, reenact the
Civil War, and volunteer at the Hesston Steam Museum (part of my
duties is to stoke a stationary boiler and operate 1/8 scale
I’m really good at
Researching history, working on vehicles, riding horses, and making
really bad puns.

add it. My favorite plays would have to be Phantom of the Opera,
Hello Dolly, The Producers, and Spamalot!
Movies: Action, Comedy, Propaganda, various others of various

Food: Sweet tea, Southern, comfort foods, German, American, Irish,
hot tea (not green) I love food in general, and will try almost

The six things I could never do without
2. Truck (Ford)
3. Trains (Hesston)
4. Livin' in the country
5. My dog

I spend a lot of time thinking about
History. Guns. Trains. Research. Civil War. Projects and hobbies.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either workin' on my truck, at a Civil War event, at Hesston, or
hanging out with friends at the local Irish pub Fiddler's Hearth.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Well if I told it here, it wouldn't be private now would it?
You should message me if
You have a passion for history, like the outdoors, or are just
curious about me, up to you. Currently I am only looking for
friends, if it becomes more than that later down the road, so be
it, but not actively looking for a relationship right now.
