I'm a dude out here doing my thing. i work to live and support my
hiking addiction. I like to make people laugh, i'm honest and treat
everyone with respect. I love to have a good time, i'm intelligent
and am always doing some kind of activity getting ready for a big
hike, so i'm pretty active.
What I’m doing with my life
What do you do when you finish your big ticket bucket list items? I
guess go back to work.
I'm actually looking forward to having some stability and doing the
9 to whatever thing.
I just finished the Continental Divide Trail and prior to that, the
Appalachian and Pacific Crest Trails. It took 4 years of my life to
plan and execute those.
I’m really good at
Wasting time online
Making people feel good when they're down
I'm also a world class movie quoter
Hiking and camping, making funny comments when people are trying to
sleep in their tent.
exploring new restaraunts
The first things people usually notice about me
red hair of course and my smile and when the season calls for it, i
grow my beard out.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
shit, i could talk all day about movies, but i'll only need to
mention one, The Big Lebowski.
Favorite book is House of Leaves, followed closely by A Tale of Two
Cities and Great Expectations. I dig TC Boyle and whoever it was
that wrote all the Hardy boys books (read em all.)
I watch the Knick, Game of Thrones, America's test kitchen, Austin
I love Yonder Mountain String Band, Widespread Panic, Black Keys,
Phish, Pretty Lights, Driveby Truckers, Bob Schneider, Sasha and
Digweed, Portishead, Massive Attack, Alison Krauss, Emmylou Harris,
a bit of Damien Marley.
The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
hiking in the mountains, what my music festival schedule is going
to be like this summer, how my trivia team is doing when i'm not
there. What's playing at the Lagoon. Planning my next road trip.
Organic farming, astrophysics
On a typical Friday night I am
grabbing a beer with friends before the show.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a total hopeless romantic.
You should message me if
if you like the cut of my jib.
and you like sailing analogies..... once.
