I've grown so in love with the journey that I no longer care about the destination.
Animals like me.
I'm the designated therapist amongst my friends.
I have flexible free time to share, because I am the boss of me.
I was raised by wolves. It shows.
I'm a biologist with minors in Anthropology, Sociology, Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry. I see the world though that lens.
I've worked in medicine for a very long time in various capacities.
I grow things - leading to - canning, freezing, sharing (Awww... C'mon.... PLEASE take some more zucchini?!), wine making (from my own grapes!) and cooking/eating/hosting.
Camping, swimming, mushroom picking, hiking, photography and wildlife spotting all merge when I'm in the woods. I will pick up snakes, frogs, rabbits, owls (ok... ONCE I found a pygmy owl that would let me handle it... ONCE!) just to get a better look at them.
I'm out of town for work weeks at a time as an OTR driver. I'm an intermittent quantity!
Cooking - Because I like eating.
Cleaning up a mess - I watch Pulp Fiction and can't wait for "The Wolf"(Harvey Keitel) to make his appearance!
Seeing the other sides to everything - Over-thinking is an art.
I can even smile at people I want to choke - No choking! It's rude. Who knew?
Manners - I has them.
I ask direct and awkward questions.
Sarcasm. Useful tool. Gives satisfaction.
Whiskey. In all its forms. "Pour the man a bourbon and tell him it's from Kentucky would you?"
Cashflow. If he can't work to make it; he'll rob to take it.
Garlic. Stinking rose FTW.
Mortality. Death is your friend, really. How boring otherwise?
Or hell... Maybe ya just wanna burn one down. I share the homegrown.
Practitioners of low humor, nerds and geeks, DIY, self-employed, available, muddy boots, stoners, philosophers, foodies, drinkers of spirits, nature-lovers, wild hairs, and anyone who still wants to hurl water balloons.
As crazy as this may sound I'm not really into sleeping with strangers, I had much of my 20's and 30's for that kind of adventure. I once had an internet date ask me this: "If you aren't sleeping with your friends, then WHO are you sleeping with?"
Axiomatic and obvious answers abound to that question.
I'm a straight dude here to make friends who can join me and my other pals (new and old) for outdoorsy shiz. Camping, disc-golf, hiking, mushroom picking, beach trips, etc... I have a big circle of friends but not enough granola on the mountain types for the wilderness stuff I want to get into. Bunch of city slickers! =)
I found these. Great policies! Feel free to share!
