My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm recently back after 2 months of backpacking, sightseeing plus a long wilderness canoe trip in Canada. In the Spring I spent another 2 months riding my bike cross-country.

I'm vagabond of sorts and have done this stuff a long time, coming and going from Portland. You don't have to be this way. The standard 40 hour, year-round work left me burned out and unfulfilled so this is very much a conscious life-style. Hobbies, volunteering, self-improvement, planning that next trip keep me busy. The routine is in my blood and draws unique friends.

Recent life events have me challenging thoughts about people and lifestyle: who belongs in, or out, of my circle, boundaries, possessions, monogamy vs. non-monogamy, fears, more. It's always good to challenge and refresh one's beliefs. I'm drawn to connections, learning about people, understanding and letting time resolve the eventual direction.

My interests go far beyond the outdoors. Jeez-- I'm in my 50's--a few other things have grabbed my curiosity along the way. I can wire a light fixture, enjoy history, create something in my workshop, distinguish art nouveau from art deco, know the notes of a minor 7th chord, and definitely know better than pitch to David Ortiz on a 3-0 count. I clean up in trivial pursuit.

Other factoids:
I'm actually pretty light-hearted. I giggle at little nothings throughout the day. I smile and nod to others when I’m out running.

I won't mug for the camera and desecrate an inspirational view by striking a yoga pose...or use the word 'namaste' indiscriminately.

Trusting and dutiful in the Myers-Briggs sense: ISFJ
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm rearranging thoughts and priorities, particularly in the world of people and relationships, after recent life events turned things upside down.

Consciously growing my circle of people which can be pretty diverse. I've kept the company of belly dancers to soccer moms to PhD's.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Letting people be themselves, respecting their space and other friendships.

Not being the guy who goes off on women that don't reply to me online. No pestering, no animosity. You get the benefit of doubt regarding your character, even if I feel dismissed. It's just the nature of the game. But...even "thanks, but no thanks" would feel pretty good at times :-)

Giving just the right change to a cashier in order to minimize the amount of coins I receive in return.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Tall. Unforced. Finding humor and intrigue with the simple and ordinary. I repel house flies and appear to be white/hate proportionate.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
We're all creative and artful in some way, not always in the standard music/art realm. I sometimes surprise myself in finding unique solutions to things. I can definitely get around in a kitchen.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Challenges, education, touch, proper footware, lessons learned from mom & dad, waking up at some ungodly hour and seeing the cat's face 2 inches away.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why I can't filter OKC members by their carbon footprint (among other things :-)).
