My self-summary
Over 10 years widowed, into carpentry most of my life and now laying out and installing architectural panels throughout the northeast, mostly on commercial buildings. Have been into canoe racing for over 30 years and have done well enough at it to make teams that have competed in different aspects of paddling all over the world. Have always traveled near and far, for short and long periods of time. Enjoy spending time with family and friends.
What I’m doing with my life
Experiecing semi-retirement and trying to figure where I will end up. Possibly warmer climates for the winter months. Not sure if I'd like to own a second home or rent in areas I find intoxicating. The trouble with settling on one place is the grass always looks greener somewhere else. Have some favorite places throughout the world and it might be nice to bounce around. This leaves me to better organizing what I have accumulated over a lifetime.
Bought a cabin in the smoky mts of north Carolina several years ago and spend about half my time here. Still have the travel bug and that should make for an interesting future. this past winter I visited a brother in Washington state, spent a couple weeks in Spain, including a week in Barcelona and in February went on a solo trip to Cuba and will definitely be going back. No need to go on those expensive tours!
