My self-summary
I'm at the point in my life where I'm not entirely sure what I want to do with it. I've just gotten back from through hiking the Appalachian Trail. It was a Southbound hike, and incredible in so many ways. I really can't describe it in a few sentences.

I own my own home. It's lovely: Open floor plan, exposed beams, just enough space for all my necessary things in life, huge windows great for stargazing, a wrap around porch provides shelter from storms, wonderful ever- changing views, not much of a kitchen, but can cook in the vestibule in a pinch. My favorite features of it are that it's large enough to be comfortable, not claustrophobic at 30 sq ft. (including porch). And it's incredibly portable, at < 2 lbs, and packs down about the size of a Nalgene. I have no other plans in the next 4 years for more permanent housing..... hopefully by then I can build a tiny house on a trailer (probably less than 100 sq ft).
What I’m doing with my life
Bumming around. Longing for my next adventure. Getting used to spending time inside again, and remembering that I don't have to wear the same socks 5 days in a row.
I’m really good at
Finding happiness in the moment.
The first things people usually notice about me
that there's usually two dogs with me, or sitting on the car seat. They may or may not be howling ;)
On a slightly more serious note: I'm laid back/ carefree. I love a good laugh, a good book, a good meal. Or even just a nice sunset with a so-so one pot dinner cooked over an cat food can, watching the stars come out & hearing the owls talk amongst themselves
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I have wide tastes in music & food.
Food: ANYTHING. Pizza of course, Any cuisine from around the world i'm willing to try. Anything fresh/local/seasonal/ made from scratch, that's the way i like to cook.
I like to cook, but I'm a Lazy Cook. I don't like recipes, only ingredients, and I just put them together in a way i think'll work (yeah, sometimes the 3rd version of the dish is the best). I do make good breakfast food & cornbread, and surprise myself at how well things I toss together turn out.
Music: WNRN (www.wnrn.org) is my favorite radio station, as they play anything & everything i consider worth listening to. I'm a snob like that....
Books: are good, haven't really read one i haven't liked. Just finished the first two Stormlight Archives books... am reading a book on Everett Ruess now, after reading a quote in a trail register
Movies: Are good, but i tend to fall asleep during them. There's just something about sitting down for 2 hours that makes me nod off. Favorites would be: LOTR,, good dramas or comedies, just about any adventure type movie (the real ones, no crap like anaconda or such).
TV: My tv only works as a DVD player, but i watch stuff on Hulu & netflix sometimes. There's a few shows I like, but usually by the time i go to watch them they've expired. Am happy It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia made it to Netflix, i can catch up on the last few seasons. There' really nothing that i consider "must see tv".
Six things I could never do without
My friends, backpack, good pair of shoes, family, garden.
i could do without the garden for a bit, when I through-hike. that would be worth not growing my own lettuce for a few seasons :)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
A lot. The changing seasons, the beauty of the world, the places I long to go back to, and the people that make things amazing. What I need to do before I can toss everything aside & live out of my backpack again for another 6 months.
On a typical Friday night I am
right now there's not too much that differentiates Friday from the rest of the week...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've recently realized that the sleeping bags (2) hanging up in my closet out- number my dresses (1).... and the sleeping bags get A LOT more use :)
You should message me if
You like the simple life, the little things that make it worthwhile, can sit back & watch a sunset, don't mind a few crazy dogs around
The two of us
