I've managed my life so I play more than I work- have rarely worked more than 6 months in a year- for so long I can't remember anything else. I wake at 4AM and get moving one day, sleep in till 9 the next. Sure, I work, probably always will, but I pick and chose the 'work'.
Pacific Northwest native; own a mountain home deep in the Cascades 20 miles from Canada. The PNW definitely shapes lives in a distinct way (grey & rain makes me happy!!;().
Have built almost everything I own...house, boats, specialized vehicles.... Never have had TV, bank loan, credit card, tie, shiny shoes, "normal" job. Every aspect of living is done on a modest budget.
Love long conversation; interesting, intellectual, fun, learner, teacher, study-er, peaceful, gentle, kind, compassionate, communicative, direct, capable of nearly anything. True gentleman, scholar and scientist at heart- with a very fun, goofball streak. The right lass will discover a very affectionate, warm, sensual guy, always sexy, teasing, playful, honest, communicative and light-hearted.
Kinda silly not to have some company for all this fun!! How about you? Wanna come along?
Finding nature and isolation even in busy cities.
Building or fixing anything: welding/metalwork, machinery of any kind from watches to rockets, woodwork, sewing.... computers/internet, technology.
Organization, neatness, thoughtful planning.
What to call it..."intentional frugality?" No need to be rich to do this; I'm great at making precious freedom chips go to the best purposes!
1) Peace or tranquility. Very glad to be living an excellent life, plenty of happiness, money, fun to go round, no drama
2) Nature. The natural world and all it's wonders.
3) Freedom: the freedom to travel, to think, to do as one pleases every day (freedom from drudgery, from slavish work)
4) Robust good health; strong body and mind; hard exercise or work.
5) Terrific friends and associates all over the world
6) Fun toys: sailing yacht, interesting vehicles...telemark skis, good hiking gear; snorkel, mask, wetsuit; time/money enough to play with them a lot!!
I think about the next invention, the next adventure, the next unknown experience.
I think about the lover I wish for and all the fun things we could do together
I think about the world resource picture from micro to macro, and what part I might be able to play
I'm at anchor in the midst of the city of San Diego as darkness falls. Around 8, I decide to go ashore, and slide open the hatch. The water surface is like rippled glass, hardly a breath of air moving. For reasons mankind cannot explain, a very large flock of mixed Western, Eared, and Pied-billed Grebes has decided it's OK to go to sleep all around the boat. The shimmer of city light reflections silhouettes their graceful floating bird-shapes. Somehow, I climb down into the rowing dinghy without disturbing them, and, rowing without a sound, find a path between hundreds of birds. If that weren't amazing enough, they are still there when I return half an hour later- and I again am permitted to row (very gingerly) right through their numbers- they allowing space for me to pass.
It's just the magic of life on the water. Wish you had been here too.
Deal breakers: if you have kids, a relationship with me is unlikely to work out- the lifestyle is just too free. Smokers and druggies are out, as are heavy partiers. If, in truth, you prefer fancy hotels, we're not it.
If you are ultra casual, outdoor oriented, quite athletic/ energetic, happy, sexy, outgoing, very intelligent, have freedom, time...and a wanderlust that just won't quit; if you're completely comfortable camping in a tent, live happily on a light budget, has a peaceful and gentle heart...
If you're ready for the fun you've always craved, get in touch!! -- Roy ~__/)_
