I hike, kayak, 4 wheel, cross country skiing, snow shoeing, ski,
snowmobiling, tennis and play golf.. I'm new at playing golf (4
years) still learning---but-enjoy playing and being outside... I go
to the gym every other day... I just completed my first I/2
marathon.. I walked fast about 14 min a mile..
I like out-door activities in the summer and the local gym in the
winter. I have a simple life. My home is 225 year old barn,
converted to a house in 1942. I have since modernized it. I
like-kayaking, sailing, painting, fishing and photography. I love--
all the culture & outdoor activities Dutchess County has to

projects. The house is my big art canvas..

& Counseling for the State. I wanted to work close to home and
enjoy the evening doing fun things & hope to meet someone to
share the Hudson-Valley with.... I have Multiple degree's and
currently I'm in school completing IT Security. After that-I will
finish my masters degree.
Last night-- (Oct---2015) I hiked in the rain with 40 local hikers.
It was just what the doctor ordered.. I'm involved with a local
paddle club and kayaked more this fall (2015)-- than I did all

and again this fall with an experienced local hiking club which was
amazing... I'm currently--heading to Cuba on an educational grant..

country-side for two weeks in the spring..

When I'm home--family board games, being with friends, church
events, concerts and good movies. I enjoy cooking home made meals
(I like healthy food)...I cooked home made sauce from the garden 5
times this summer. The tomatoes were just amazing this year.. Why--
eat instant potatoes from the box when "I can cook my own". I know
this might sound boring--but--I am drama free. I would like you
--to be the same... Drama free--no crazy ex--girl friends or
Please say hello--only if you want a relationship with "one"
