My self-summary
Hey, my name's Jeff, I'm a Minneapolis native who's been living out in Central Oregon for the past couple years and I'm back in Minneapolis for a couple months before I move up to Duluth.

I'm an adventurer and an outdoor enthusiast. I make a point to live the life that makes me happy and experience new things whenever I can.
What I’m doing with my life
I've been living the seasonal lifestyle for quite a while now. I spend my summers working outdoors educating people and sharing my passion for the natural world. During the winters, I usually pick up odd jobs to get me through to the next season.

I'm still piecing together what I want to be exactly when I grow up, but I'll be sure to let you know whenever that is.
I’m really good at
I like to think that I'm good at a lot of things, but I don't know of anything I could say I excel at. I'm pretty well trained in backcountry survival and travel, so in the event of getting lost in the wild or a post apocalyptic scenario I'd be pretty helpful to have around.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm an observer socially most of the time, so it often takes me a little while to open up and start mingling properly. As a result, people assume I'm just a really quiet dude. Give me a little bit of time to figure the crowd out though and I'll be tough to shut up.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The works of Edward Abbey, Harry Turtledove, Douglas Adams, Jeffrey Shaara, Jared Diamond, and many others.

Movies: I like movies.

Shows: Netflix has been a bane to my motivation lately, so I'm trying to watch less. :Like many others, I have a tendency to binge watch entire series, so if you know any good ones, I'm always looking to feed my addiction.

Music: Anything that makes me happy. My musical interests are so far across the board, it would be impossible to describe.

Food: If it tastes good, I'm game. So long as it isn't chocolate.
The six things I could never do without
-Time outside
-Humor
-Time to relax (can be, and usually is shared with outside time)
-Freedom
-Having someone to share with
-Something to keep me motivated
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future of the wilderness, education, science, and human kind in general. Life today as compared to the way it was lived in the past. Imagining disaster scenarios in my head and planning out how I'd react to them.

What I need to do to get on my way with my next adventure. I intend to canoe the length of the Mississippi one day or Hike the PCT, or some other kind of endurance long distance journey.
On a typical Friday night I am
There is no typical. I know that sounds cheesy, but I don't really like keeping schedules or repetition in my life.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I despise most impersonal methods of communication such as phones and messaging, and as a result, am terrible with them. It's not really private, but it a key trait of mine.
You should message me if
You want to get to know me and don't mind that I have a mobile lifestyle and may not be in one place for long.

You're looking for a biking/boating/camping/anything outdoors buddy. I'm pretty much on this site to find people to do adventurous things with.

Also, I hate impersonal communication methods like IMing and such, so I try to move on to meeting in real life as soon as appropriate.

Seriously though, if you want to go on an adventure, hit me up.
