My self-summary
Looking for a sweet, petite hiking companion...

Quick-Start Guide:
Shake well to get attention, light fuse, then retreat to a safe distance.

Ingredients: (not approved by FDA/USDA)
70% Han Solo, 10% Darth Vader, 10% Obi-Wan Kenobi, 10% Yoda (after a good ear trim). Natural colour & flavour. Certified organic.

Interests:
Astronomy, backpacking, climbing, running, sailing, coffee on deck at pre-dawn in heavy weather, losing snowball fights to my girl, a good mystery, Classical music, zombie flicks, survival prep, Blues, Greenpeace, board games, simple things, Kombucha, tradition, British humour, and old brass.

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

Favourite quote:
"I yam what I yam, and that's all what I yam."
-- Popeye, putting some moves on Descartes style. ;-)
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to find ways of making every day worth remembering.
I’m really good at
Losing at board games, and covertly making the "drip" sound (inquiries welcome). It's great for making people stare at the ceiling on rainy days & inducing sheer terror below deck on heavy seas! Mwahaha!

Six things I could never do without
Hmm, I thrive on discovery & inspiration, so here are six things that enable & fulfill me:

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 spend a lot of time thinking about
The Sea, where I've been, where I've not, where I'm going, my mental & physical goals, the composition, mean density, and elastic properties of Tigger's head & tail, why my storm door & interior door swing to opposite directions.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out taking another tumble into a creek, stargazing with a friend, on my favourite curb with my diary, reading, chatting on the phone or radio, taking in a flick, or perhaps just hanging with my mates. Oh yeah, I nearly missed out plotting the dictatorship of the universe from my zombie stronghold on Mars, but that's top secret; keep it under your hat.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I occasionally succumb to the evil charms of the notorious Mickey D's Double Quarterpounder. For shame!
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 should message me if
You've made it this far without your eyes bleeding,
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)
