My self-summary
"ISTP - Craftsman, introspective, Logical, objective, thrill seeker. Enjoys spontaneity, and technical expertise. Jobs may include EMT, ER Doctor, engineer, computer programmer, law enforcement/military. Enjoys freedom and independence." That shit is accurate.

I'm pretty simple and straight up, I dont know why people today have to be so difficult and play these relationshippy boy/girl games. If you're sending me "signals" I'm probably not getting it, and you're probably confusing the shit out of me. Just say what you mean/want, and I promise to do the same!
What I’m doing with my life
Spent the last 7 years traveling around with the US Coast Guard. Y'know, guarding coasts and what not.

In the not too distant future I hope to be the owner and operator of a badass brewery/meadery.

I fly a starship, across the universe divide...

I am also a renowned horse fighting promoter.
I’m really good at
Making beer, bushcraft, rational conversation, making friends, making mead, video games, sudoku, listening, being a big brother, being chill, marksmanship, furrowing my brow, flexing for no reason and at inappropriate times, laughing entirely too much at childish things... but the thing im best at? Saving christmas.

I'm also a competent carpenter.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a really great butt. #deadlift

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Quitting my job so i can grow a beard and make alcohol. Philosophy, logic and ethics, sometimes metaphysics but that usually ties up the following couple of hours (and pints of beer), and usually goes nowhere.... or maybe what/where/when my next awesome adventure will be. unfortunately most of my days are now spent thinking about serious stuff. Being an adult kinda blows..
On a typical Friday night I am
I am atypical and so are my friday nights. But honestly, I am probaby having a couple of beers with a few close friends, or watchin a movie, or possibly doing something completely shut-in like playing video games or doing cosmo magazine quizzes... Am I joking? You probably wont know till its too late...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Look, I'm on here because I really enjoy my life. I mean it's a pretty damn awesome one as far as lives go. I realized though that I'm missing a friend and partner to share this shit with. I love being alone to relax or meditate, or even to just enjoy the stillness and quiet of the earth; but I need a partner for the other times. I want someone at my side while I'm having the greatest experiences and adventures of my life. Someone to back me up, cheer, help, and encourage and with whom I can reciprocate all those things. If that sounds like something you want, let's get a beer and talk :)
You should message me if
You want to share a squat rack with me
you can handle laughing your ass off and/or incredibly tight hugs.
you're capable of a rational discussion rather than arguing.
you're pragmatic
you're kind-hearted and enjoy a good beer and/or whiskey and talkin story!

I should put this disclaimer in here I guess: Politically I am not a fan democrats or Republicans. So if you are a worshipper of political ideologues, you might want to sit this one out. Sorry not sorry.
