My self-summary
After 15 years there, I still say i'm from Minnesota, but i've only been there about a month in the past year. For the past several months I've been working on an experimental permaculture project in Montana (near Missoula) and expect to be here until December (then back again in April). For two months before i came here i was working in Florida. This winter i'll be working two months in New Mexico and then two months in Hawaii.

Some of the things i like are: permaculture, bicycle touring, photography, vegan food, reading, camping, foraging, rock climbing, sewing, mutual aid, cuddling, dumpster diving, train hopping, canoeing, thrift stores, square dancing, ceili dancing, and pretty much any kind of dancing, gardening, working out...

I've been vegan for ethical reasons for 19 years and drug free even longer. (Sometimes i say straightedge, but i've never been part of that scene.) I am an anarchist. That doesn't mean no rules, it means no rulers. We still have to look out for each other.

Consent is sexy!
What I’m doing with my life
Questioning the answers.

I'm putting my energy toward living life to the fullest. I work just enough and the rest of the time i like to travel and learn, build stuff and dig in the dirt.

Making a lot of money is not important to me. Making the world a better place is. I spend a chunk of my time volunteering for various non-profits.

Trying to implement "No is what you have, yes is what you can get."

I try to learn from my mistakes.
I’m really good at
eating twice as much food as you, falling asleep anywhere (in a car, plane, boat, train, tree, movie theater, on a pile of rocks, even on my bike), flirting, making extremely intricate stencils, riding my bike with no hands, fixing stuff, and sinking instead of floating.
The first things people usually notice about me
is my "winning smile".

The six things I could never do without
change, my bike, dancing, learning, garlic, climbing trees

(OK, duh! we know you can't live without air or water, etc. This is the part where you tell us what makes your life fun and exciting instead of routine and boring. )
I spend a lot of time thinking about
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't work a 9-5 job so, typical is not really a good description. Let's just say this could be any night. I might be cooking some yummy vegan food, playing a board game with friends, reading by the fire, at a square dance, or out exploring the woods.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't like A Prairie Home Companion.
You should message me if
you are amazing, you have something interesting to talk about, or you can teach me to sail. I'm not very good at messaging, so hopefully you'd rather meet sooner than later. Not really interested in smokers and people that can't live without bacon. I would like to find someone compassionate, intelligent, and confident. You should especially message me if you try to live curiously and are ready for adventures.
