I'm a local native Lefty/Liberal Progressive/Socialist who is proud of his "Patches Pal" roots growing up here in Pugetropolis in the 80's.
In my 20's, I read "the Rocket", saw shows @ the Backstage in Ballard, slurped stiffies @ the 5 Point, rocked out @ RKCNDY or ate hash after the bash @ the Off Ramp, & generally got down n' dirty in the mud puddle of 1990's Seattle.
I attempted to stabilize in my 30's: I became a mailman, tried to settle down, got married, tried my hand @ home ownership a couple of times, bought a Harley, & nested south in West Seattle. But some things weren't meant to be.
In my 40's, I've gotten real: I gave up drinking, I divorced, swore off home ownership, kept the Harley, moved to Ballard to be close to work, focused on myself, and now I feel sober optimism about life. And boredom. -Yawn-
I enjoy being single but I miss the nice stuff in a relationship so that's why I've put myself out here on OKC.
I'm a mellow extrovert here looking meet other mellow extroverts!
I'm an ESTJ according to the Myers-Briggs test.

If you've sown your wild oats, gone through some shit, settled down, gotten your shit together, and enjoy having a stable, optimistic life without the upheaval that you lived in your 20's & 30's, then we have something in common.

As you can see from my pics, I enjoy the outdoors. If you enjoy the outdoors via car camping, hiking, road trips, & exploring in general, pass me a note. I really love road trips on my bike. I want to travel more! And I also want to dine out more with a lovely lady as my companion. Dinner & a movie is fun! Dating should be fun! And funny! Take my advice and date a funny fucker!
