For fun, I like to hang out with friends, many of them have kids. I enjoy hiking in local parks & skiing in Tahoe...I'm a serious live music fan and fond of music festivals: New Orleans Jazz fest, Telluride Bluegrass, Hardly Strictly, Salvador Brazil for Carnival!
I like camping, hiking, rafting, bonfires & bongos. I'm politically liberal and concerned with world affairs although sometimes I want to move to a beach...
My "perfect" night is around a fire, by a lake, with friends & guitars, a cooler of beer, a funny cigarette ;), and they want me to sing classic rock tunes all night!
