I spend copious amounts of time in the woods cultivating the shrinking Art of Manliness, reading books heavily, and learning everything I can about the world around me. I have done multiple weeklong solo backpacking and bushcraft trips, and uncountable numbers of weekend trips as well. I mightttt just be addicted. I am working on how I can do the Appalachian trail. It will happen.
I am also obsessed with NASA and the space program, and it's a crying shame that interplanetary trips and exploration will not be possible in my lifetime.
I am a science fanatic, and I have a special knack for detecting bullshit on those silly facebook memes that people just love sharing without doing a simple fact check. Snopes is my best friend.
