My self-summary
I'm an outdoor fellow. Cycling (loaded touring, mainly), backpacking, canoe and kayaking with sail and paddle (Have a double sailing kayak that needs a partner), whitewater boating (Have a R2 Cataraft that needs a partner), camping, trail running. Do a bit of fly fishing.
I'm a musician.........retired from it publicly in '85.
I also enjoy doing things on the more 'civilized' side of life. Dining out, a pint or two at an Irish Pub, movies, reading.
What I’m doing with my life
Working my dream job of advising and equipping people for their outdoor adventures.
Currently building a very good all-weather, all-country, heavy load capable, SS torque coupling equipped ( so it can be broken down a carried as checked baggage) touring bike that would handle something like cycling from Canada to the tip of South America with great success.
Working on retiring early.
Messing about on this online dating service.
I’m really good at
Flipping bottle caps.

Junie: Intellectual.
Connie: You exude a warm, friendly personality.
Susan: You don't age....You haven't changed since high school.
Joe: A deep, warm southern drawl. Betty Davis eyes and Earl Campbell thighs.
David: You're a walking, talking encyclopedia of biking and camping gear.
Joe (again): You had gray hair in highschool?!
Frank: You're a modern Henry David Thoreau who wears ugly sandals. Did I get it right? ;-)
Lynn: Met you the one time in Ashland when April was in town but I thought you had an awesome smile and were quite personable too (not to mention really, really, really buff).

Well alrighty then............
