My self-summary
I am deep, loyal, and curious and would just love to find someone special to walk through life with.

I love reading, animals, and being outdoors.

If I don't have some up I would be happy to send a photo if you would like to see one.
What I’m doing with my life
i dont mind at all saying but, for right now, a little privacy is good. ask me and we can talk about it.
I’m really good at
most anything athletic, being open to adventures, reading, figuring things out, and oh, apparently im really good at being single...laughs.

if i take the time---seeing gods hand or purpose in all things.
The first things people usually notice about me
if we meet, you can tell me!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
almost too many books to mention (ive got a great library) but some off the top of my head---mutiny on the bounty, kidnapped (i like everything by stevenson), a tale of two cities (i like dickens too), watership down and the all creatures great and small series. ive also enjoyed james fenimore cooper's the last of the mohicans, the deerslayer and the pathfinder. dracula and frankenstein even. am a big fan of sherlock holmes; ive read all the conan doyle stuff and have been reading contemporary versions of holmes the past few yrs. i particulary like the versions by larry millet and oddly enough, laurie king. patrick mcmanus (an outdoor writer) makes me laugh right out loud. ive thoroughly enjoyed every lee child jack reacher novel ive read. lastly, and id love to elaborate, tom brown's schooldays. ive got a great library that I love adding to. >4500 books and counting.

movies: glory, remember the titans, hair, the princess bride, monty python and the holy grail, the lion the witch and the wardrobe and most recently, the fault in our stars. the more i watch the last of the mohicans, the better it gets. and the sandlot---every time its on, i'll watch it. i grew up watching abbott and costello movies and still enjoy them. id be remiss if i didnt mention that jean luc picard is one of my favorite fictional characters.

I think survivor is riveting, and I enjoy American restoration, counting cars, and if M*A*S*H is on, I will have it running in the background. I loved everwood when it was on, and that, and the unit never should have been cancelled. numb3rs was terrific and I have enjoyed all the man vs wild and survivorman shows. lately I have become absolutely smitten with the voice.

i pretty much like all music with the exception of rap. the past few yrs has seen me identify strongly with celtic and other folk music, particularly of the slow and peaceful kind (think wild mountain thyme, shenendoah, and song for ireland). ive been all over the uk but not to ireland; id like to go someday. today's country music is so so good. I don't like his politics, but I love springsteen's music. i love joe cocker's version of the letter, the ecstasy of gold from the good, the bad, and the ugly and billy idol's remake of mony mony and sooo many others.

i dont play anything, though i have a wooden recorder id like to learn.

im a vegetarian but outside of that, i'll try most anything and like foods from all over. if i had to live on a desert island though and could only eat a few things for the rest of my life, id say, peanut butter toast and herbal tea (if that can count as one), cold nectarines and watermelon, pizza, pasta, hummus, chips and salsa, bbq potato chips and either grape or tomato juice (what a treat!).
Six things I could never do without
hope, hope, hope, hope, more hope and dare i say hope?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
my goodness all sorts of blessed (or cursed!) with curiousity.
On a typical Friday night I am
am not sure there is such a thing as typical...but i do look forward to a change from the recent past.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
this is a toughie---while nothing is secret from god, telling those secrets to our fellows is another story. theres definitely a tension between discretion and complete would be good to talk about.
You should message me if
if we have anything in common

for sure if you want to ride coast to coast, paddle the Mississippi, hike the Appalachian trail or train for & do an ironman triathlon.

and if you've stopped in as a visitor, take a small risk and write me back....
The two of us
