My self-summary
My name's Jeff, I'm a Minneapolis native who's been living out in Central Oregon for the past couple years. I'm back in Minnesota and bouncing around right now until I figure out where in the world I want to go next.

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.

I'm primarily on this website to make new friends and meet people to go on adventures with. I've been single for a few years and really enjoy the freedom and simplicity of it and don't seek to change that any time soon. So if you're on the hunt for someone to go on hikes or try new hobbies or just stare into space and have conversations with, please keep reading.
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 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: Edward Abbey, Jon Krakauer, Harry Turtledove, Douglas Adams, Jeffrey Shaara, Jared Diamond, and many others. I mostly like reading things I can learn from or be motivated by. I read novels now and then, but feel like most plots have been over done and get bored of them.

Movies: Just about everything I'll at least dabble in. I have a lot of films that depending on which I'm talking about at the time will be my favorite. This is probably the hardest one to narrow down to a list, so I just won't.

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 and usually walk away regretting the waste of time, then go back and do it again a couple days later.

Music: Anything that makes me happy. Music affects my attitude pretty easily, so I like to typically keep it on the lighter side. I'll also try to match the activity that I'm doing with what I listen to, so if you know any good summer time biking music, I'm always on the look-out.

Food: I've got a pretty easy pallet to work with. I'm not really a foodie or all that food driven. Honestly, if there were one bodily function I could give up, it would be the need to eat. However, I really enjoy cooking meals with friends and having communal dinners and such. I worked as a cook for a while, so I'm also not incompetent in the kitchen.
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.

I work in the recreation industry, so my weekends are usually the middle of the normal work week.
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.

Like I said above, I'm not really on the search for a relationship or the likes right now, just new faces to talk to and explore 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.
