Let me sell my awesome qualities to you. I know, I am just lurking, supposedly. I am tall, bookish and a bit of a nerd, all in one. I like tai chi, technology and red wine. I am en entrepreneur, an inventor of sorts, cold blooded romantic and an artist. Also, I used to paint in the past, abandoned it, and just recently started doing it again. OK, how's that? Short and meaningless sum up but it sounds good.
I like outdoors, hiking, camping and fishing. Unfortunately I am not doing this as much as I like. When I lived years ago in Maine, I hiked parts of the Appalachian trail. I still dream about going for a 6-months long hike through the entire trail. Maybe one day I will. Meanwhile I rely on Bill Bryson's A Walk in the Woods for satisfying my wilderness craviings. Highly recomend this book, it's hilarious, both about man's nature and the wild nature.
