I love the outdoors and keeping fit. I play soccer, lift weights, and run for regular exercise. I've been snowboarding for something like 10 years, but have not been in some time as I currently live far from tall mountains and have a strong preference for fresh powder. I've more recently got into backpacking and love it. My friend and I got lost once out in California and survived through some pretty harsh conditions. I hope to better develop my skills so that I can eventually do proper Alpine climbs with picks and crampons. I also hope to find enough time to get a motorcycle next year.
I drive an '03 Honda Civic with no automatic anything: gearbox, windows, door-locks, or cruise control, and I love it. It can't accelerate for shit, but it runs great, gets me there, and doesn't break down.
I've never understood the difference which people claim exists between geek and nerd. I prefer the term boffin. It sounds more bad-ass. I like learning and thinking about things.
I don't know why the OKCupid Personality algorithm determines I'm very less artistic. It think the answer options to questions OKC asks that are tend towards an artistic personality are at odds with a logical personality. This doesn't make sense to me. I am currently developing my photography and guitar skills.
