My self-summary
I like travel, outdoor activities ( Mt biking, swimming, hiking, camping, fly fishing, photography, gardening..) and am retired. I have two kids who live nearby, with five grand kids who I see very often. I try to get out on my Mt bike two or 3 times a week, or hike, swim, depending on what is convenient for the location. I just bought a new mountain bike, so I am feeling a new level of motivation! Having been a contractor, I find myself fixing and doing small (sometimes big!!) projects on my place. I have a double sea kayak, and other toys collected from an active life that my family participated in and still do. I just restored two old "Flexible Flyer" runner sleds from the 60's for my grand kids. My long driveway is perfect, but may be a little much for them this year(600" of ice!).

I read and listen to audiobooks, and read online instead of watching TV, but sometimes a movie is great.
I have dreams of road trips with my trailer to the many great places up and down the west, to many I am familiar with and many that I have yet to see. As we know, doing these things alone is not nearly so inviting.

I am adventurous, romantic, and thoughtful (I hope!)
What I’m doing with my life
Retired and loving it, traveling between my rural place near Spokane, and in better weather, camping and stream fishing for a few days (weeks!) between a similar amount of time working on my house/property. Mixed in there are my grand kids, 3 to 11years old. I take seriously the idea of the preservation of what I have on every level, so I act accordingly..well..I try to!
I’m really good at
building/fixing house-related things, mountain biking, various sports I used to do, being somewhat spontaneous...
The first things people usually notice about me
Tall and gregarious, maybe shy at first, short hair, I laugh a LOT, cannot get too serious about things I cannot do anything about.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love many types of movies, and I would like to see many of them again!
I have 18 feet of floor to ceiling bookcases, filled with my collection, much US History, mostly nineteenth century and early twentieth century; political, social and military, and I actually read much of it! (forgot much of what I read!!) I also enjoy historical novels. anyway, I enjoy reading! For many of the recent publications, I often settle for lengthly reviews, there aren't enough years in life to keep up.
As for FOOD, I love most kinds, if done sort of correctly and not too spicy. I like to team up in the preparation, (and cleanup!)
Six things I could never do without
My grown kids, grand kids, free time, exercise, reading matter, stimulating thoughtful conversation, and, ...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...the possibility of a companion to share the future we both want to make the best of..
On a typical Friday night I am
Often just here cooking up something interesting, or just as often, babysitting. Or maybe napping during an action movie at my son's, or in season, returning from some midweek fly fishing at the end of the St Joe or NF Clearwater river.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a bionic man
You should message me if
you have a sweet tooth for LIFE!! and don't know complacency...
The two of us
