I love the outdoors, particularly the water. I spend much of my summers on my cruiser on the nearby St. Croix River. I also love to hike, hunt and fish both here in Minnesota and out West.
I also love flying and am a FAA-qualified aircraft pilot. I fly single-engine aircraft capable of carrying up to four people.
I enjoy fine music, dining and the arts, but am just as comfortable in a pair of jeans and cowboy boots, as in my tux.
My friends would describe me as loyal, totally honest, accommodating, optimistic with a sense of humor and very dependable. I'm an Officer and a Gentleman.
I wholly appreciate women as equals, but also recognize that they are different, psychologically and, of course, physically, from men. Its those differences that make for the rewards and challenges of great relationships.
I am extroverted, empathetic, and very intelligent

You realize that the keys to a successful relationship are "compromise" and "trust". The ability to play a reasonably good game of chess would be an additional positive quality.
