Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey there, I'm Jeff. I'm an outdoor enthusiast and am committed to
using as much of my time as I can to get out and experience the
I'm living in central Oregon now experiencing the high desert
lifestyle and drinking many types of beers.
I'm originally from Minnesota and though I enjoy traveling around
and seeing new places, I'll always consider the north woods lake
country my true home.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I graduated with a degree in Outdoor Leadership and Wilderness
Emergency Medical Services and have since been living the seasonal
guiding lifestyle moving place to place finding new jobs every few
months. It's not a very comfortable, predictable, and least of all,
profitable lifestyle, but it's a ton of fun and I like it that way.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I like to think that I'm good at a lot of things, but I don't know
of anything I could say I excel at. I'm pretty well trained in
backcountry survival and travel, so in the event of getting lost in
the wild or a post apocalyptic scenario I'd be pretty helpful to
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm an observer socially most of the time, so it often takes me a
little while to open up and start mingling properly. As a result,
people assume I'm just a really quiet dude. Give me a little bit of
time to figure the crowd out though and I'll be tough to shut up.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: The works of Edward Abbey, Harry Turtledove, Douglas Adams,
Jeffrey Shaara, Jared Diamond, and many others.
Movies: I'm a sucker for 80's teen comedies, as well as anything
made by George Lucas or Steven Spielberg. I also find myself
spending possibly unhealthy amounts of time watching documentaries
on just about any subject.
Shows: Netflix has been a bane to my motivation lately, so I'm
trying to watch less. I like many others have a tendency to binge
watch entire series, so if you know any good ones, I'm always
looking to feed my addiction. I do thoroughly enjoy the show Whale
Wars, it is one of my life goals to join the Sea Shepards.
Music: Anything that makes me happy. My attitude gets too
influenced by the music I listen to and I avoid angry or sad
Food: If it tastes good, I'm game. So long as it isn't chocolate.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-Time to relax (can be, and usually is shared with outside
-Having someone to share with
-Something to keep me motivated
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The future of the wilderness, education, science, and human kind in
general. Life today as compared to the way it was lived in the
past. Imagining disaster scenarios in my head and planning out how
I'd react to them.
What I need to do to get on my way with my next adventure. I intend
to canoe the length of the Mississippi one day or Hike the PCT, or
some other kind of endurance long distance journey.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There is no typical. I know that sounds cheesy, but I don't really
like keeping schedules or repetition in my life.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I despise most impersonal methods of communication such as phones
and messaging, and as a result, am terrible with them. It's not
really private, but it a key trait of mine.

You want to get to know me and don't mind that I have a mobile
lifestyle and may not be in one place for long.
You're looking for a biking/boating/camping/anything outdoors
buddy. I'm pretty much on this site to find people to do
adventurous things with.
Also, I hate impersonal communication methods like IMing and such,
so I try to move on to meeting in real life as soon as
Seriously though, if you want to go on an adventure, hit me up.
