I like physical activities and adventures. I am really passionate about sharing the beautiful places I visit in our great state. Share a sitting pad with me and some hot chocolate and let's enjoy the view and share our histories, dreams and aspirations as we learn to connect with each other.
What I’m doing with my life
I like to spend at least one of my days off snowshoeing or
cross-country skiing in the winter. Mostly hiking in the non-snow
months, as well as some canoeing, kayaking and road cycling.
I’m really good at
I am an inspired guide. I am a good and patient teacher. I know the best places in Washington for adventuring. I am in good health and keep myself in fit condition. You can trust you will be safe with me. I love sharing my favorite places and adventures. We will go places and at a pace that is comfortable for you. I am a good cook and know my way around a kitchen.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my southern accent. I am Appalachian American.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My current favorite book series is Patrick O'Brian, Aubrey-Maturin historical novels. Which by the way is one of my favorite genres. I read a lot of non-fiction as well, especially historical. I just finished reading, "Floor of Heaven". It is non-fiction following 3 men who all end up in the Yukon Gold Rush. Read "Boys in the Boat". One of my favorite musicians is Van Morrison. I have been listening to a lot of Bluegrass and Folk music lately. Don't watch much TV. I do like to get DVDs from the library and watch them. One of my favorite is the BBC series, "All Creatures Great and Small". Not a picky eater. Seafood is one of my favorites, although am hard pressed to say that I actually have a favorite food. Been listening to a lot of Neil Young lately.
The six things I could never do without
Getting outside. Sub-alpine larches when they turn gold in the fall! Sharing my favorite places and adventures with that special companion.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My next adventure that you are going to join me on.
On a typical Friday night I am
Thinking about what I am going to make you for dinner on Saturday night, candlelight of course. What movie you are going to pick for us to watch.
You should message me if
I am looking for a long term, committed monogamous relationship. I am loyal, kind, dedicated and have a open heart. I don't expect fireworks on the first date, if it happens that would be nice as well. I am more interested in building bridges and forming a companionship. I have the patience to let the connection occur organically. I know perfect is not for real.
