I'm a humanist with a mild Luddite bent. Aside from that, I'd describe myself as affable, spontaneous, moderately adventurous and relatively intelligent woman hoping to meet an action nerd!
I truly believe that smart is sexy, some social awkwardness is endearing, the ability to engage in meaningful conversation is vital.
I have an abiding fear of ignorance, intolerance, dogma and spiders.
I prefer to amass experience over material possessions, am not a fan of loud/obnoxious people (thus am rarely found in a bar unless to see a band), appreciate fine dining and real linen but love visiting mom & pop diners just as well.
My idea of a great vacation would be hiking/backpacking for a week or two, volunteering in the Galapagos/Nepal/Patagonia, or kayaking. My nightmare : Vegas!
I enjoy the challenge of do it yourself projects .
Aside from doing so for work, I have not traveled much. This is a situation I intend to remedy, so if you'd be a good guide or are in a similar position we'd get along famously. Better still if you appreciate anything from a trek to Everest base camp to visiting local small town festivals.
I detest winter, so I participate in the mountaineer division of snowshoe races to keep a bit more active than is my natural inclination when snow is present.
Being relatively new to the area, and certainly new to having free time with which to occupy myself I am looking forward to finding a kindred spirit.
