Originally from the south but have chosen Seattle to be my home for 15 years now. Rain or shine I'm out with the dog in the city or on a hike. Frequenting non corporate coffee shops is my only obvious vice---Gotta have my iced mocha. If I can't see a tree outside my window or on a walk I just might have a panic attack--- Still a country boy at heart with simple living and noncomplicated lifestyle.
