Shake well to get attention, light fuse, then retreat to a safe distance.

Some things that flip my switch:
The way a girl's wet hair clings to her face in the rain, being ambushed or pounced on, wrapping my girl with my jacket when she's cold
The sincerity & warmth I've known in other cultures, falling asleep on a grass mat to the sound of crickets, wind & rain lashing my tent

Food & Drink:
Mostly Paleo, but I must admit to a few cheats.
The Sea; source of all,
Honour; to light my way,
Romance; to exalt my soul,
Love; to warm my heart,
Communication; to nurture understanding,
Victory; to provide sustenance,
Challenge; to give life purpose,
Sacrifice; to frame it all...
I just can't take it! My inner child is about to burst out of my chest like an alien...
My passport and a visa, water purifier, boots, compass, pack, tent, and most importantly... a cute sidekick rocking a ballcap with ponytail and hiking boots ensemble.
I think it plausible that Tigger is the ruler of the known universe, his head is warped space-time, and his tail is a singularity.
I believe dogs do the 69 butt sniff greeting because they cannot shake hands.
Once, and I mean only once, upon a time...
While rapid-rappelling an overhang, I burned the crotch out of my jeans when the rope slipped betwixt my legs; thought I was going to need therapy.
You want to push me into a creek, pond, lake, or shove me overboard,
You are aching to hear the "drip" sound,
You are experiencing end-stage board game withdrawal symptoms,
You are looking for a good friend. (Friend means Friend- No FWB, No hook-ups)
