First off, because this is Utah, plus this is important to me, I do not believe in god. I'm an Atheist, I believe in common sense, logic, reason, and the scientific way of thinking. I will not bother you about my beliefs, and I usually keep it to myself unless asked. I believe religion should be a personal experience and kept strictly to one's self. I have many religious friends, this does not bother me, I can respect personal lifestyle choices. Just don't try to force it upon me, that's all I ask.
I love the outdoors, camping, fishing, hiking, skiing, drives in the mountains are all me! I know almost every guy lists outdoor related activities as interests, but I'll honestly say I'd rather be outside than sitting around playing video games or wasting time in front of the TV. I also enjoy card games, board games, and other geeky related activities.
Sadly most of my friends are city people and stuff outside the city scares them. If I could, I'd move to a remote mountainous place with lots of books to escape it all.
I'm also a fan of most of the scientific fields out there today. I would love a job that had field work or lots of hands on science. I'm also a big space nut. I honestly think we should have a moon base by now and have walked on Mars at least once. Space exploration is a major drive for innovation, abandoning it like our current government has is very idiotic in my mind.
I'm a big food nut, or food snob depending on how you interpret my reactions and beliefs. I love food too much to be vegetarian and I'm totally willing to remove cute fuzzy animals from nature to make tasty food.
I have salt & pepper hair, I started going grey in high school and have facial hair. I'm rarely seen without a hat and usually wear cargo's with a t-shirt.
I find it sad that people often judge on age, life is short and this should not influence making new friends. You can have fun, or be grumpy old fart no matter how old you are.
