I am slowly working on becoming a 46er (hiking up all 46 high peaks of the Adirondacks) I've done about 6 peaks so far. I knocked out 5 peaks on a one day over ambitious hike back in August. I also am working on the lesser 54, I've done about 3. It would be great to have a hiking buddy to enjoy the views from atop the world.
I am also a self taught furniture maker. I like building from reclaimed wood, like pallet wood. A time lapse of me building my first pallet table. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YDIS4s0fU44
Additionally, I work many odd jobs, construction, landscape, pet sitting, painting, etc. I'm pretty handy. I recently teamed up with my brother to expand his beer shirts business to the east coast. Stop by my tent and say Hi!. Most recent festival was Big Brew in Augusta New Jersy, next show is Big Brew in Tarrytown New York on July 30th. Come by and say hi at our Tapped Life Tent.
This past May I for no apparent reason managed to break two of toes just getting out of bed. After two months of recovery and just plane sick of waiting I went and hiked up in the adirondack and climbed two high peaks with my dog. Porter and Cascade are now done. I plan to do Giant and Rocky Peak next week.
Movies: Interstellar, Mr. Holland's Opus, Real Genius, The Big Lebowski, White Fang, Anchorman, Thomas Crown Affair, A Man Apart, Seven, The Great Raid, Christine, a real feel good movie I've grown to like is "We Bought a Zoo"
It's hard for me to pick favorites... I own somewhere in the neighborhood of 1000 titles. Some people have a hard time understanding why I would want to watch a movie a second or third or fourth time. I am many times reminded by something I saw on TV, or an event going on around me, or a song playing on the radio of some movie that I saw (usually one I own) and I must go watch it again even if that little reminding spark plays just the smallest role in the movie.
TV: MacGyver, Downton Abbey, Man Vs. Wild, Walking Dead, Hell on Wheels and others
Music: Nina Simone, Beastie Boys, Bob Marley, old skool Snoop Doggie Dog, Blind Melon, Ting Tings, Counting Crows, and so many more....
Food: Omelets, dill mustard, chicken pesto pizza, cheese, wasabi almonds, honey graham O's cereal, and stone ground wheat crackers. I've never had dragonfruit but have always wanted to try it!

I am making plans for numerous road trips with my dog. I recently came back from a trip driving up the Maine coast visiting lighthouses. I made it all the way up to Campobello Island in New Brunwick Canada. I visited 12 lighthouses in total over a two day period. In the next year or so I want to plan a trip up to the Trans Labrador highway and across to Newfoundland. It's one of the loneliest roads as reported in men's journal. The loop I plan is about 3300 miles.
