My self-summary
Love writing a few paragraphs that people will then judge you on to see if your worth getting to know. Not... I think I'm usually better at this type of thing over a beer or dinner...you ask a question, I ask a question etc. but I'll give it a try. :)

So maybe a few of the things I like to do might help to "summarize me" a little more.
-I like doing outside stuff - camping, kayaking, hiking, a little golf, riding my motorcycle and bike
-I ride at least a couple days of RAGBRAI every year (ridden in 16 of them)
-I like working in my yard, landscaping, gardening, hunting, almost no fishing (which is way less than I used to as a kid and really miss it).

-I like technology, but sometimes I hate that I'm so tied to it.
-I used to read a lot - I hardly do anymore - seems like there's always something else I should be doing - but I miss it.
- I stay busy. I don't sit around or lay around much. I do like a lazy day on the couch once in a while but it's usually a forced event due to too some over zealous bartender goal to over serve me the night before. ;) I think that's the main reason I love vacation - I get away and can't do anything but relax. :)
-I used to own a party bus business. When I sold it I had six buses. It was a lot of fun, a lot of work and was a good business AND I'm happy to be done it.

I have two kids - my daughter is 9 and my son is 7. I LOVE being a dad, and I LOVE spending time with them - I have them for a week every other week.

About me: I'm a cup-half-full person. I smile a lot, laugh a lot and I like people around me to be the same. I've really started trying to surround myself with positive people.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying my best to enjoy it while trying my hardest to set a good example for my kids.

I work hard and I play hard. Love to travel - just back from a week in the Tahoe are, hiking, Mt. Biking, relaxing amongst the pines.
I’m really good at
....YTBD. But I'll keep tryin' stuff and get back to ya.
The first things people usually notice about me
My striking good looks or manly physic.
Kidding - totally kidding.

I don't know, maybe my height or green eyes?

You tell me. :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Shows:
I like almost all original HBO, Netflix and Showtime shows: House of Cards, Breaking Bad, Family Guy, Archer, I watch a couple cooking shows, myth busters sometimes... I don't really watch a lot of TV. I DVR a lot of shows so they're there if I get inspired.

Music:
I like Jazz when I cook, techno when I clean the house, house and trance while I work at my desk and classic rock in the shower. Also blues, old school country, and funk. I like live music in small bars - not really a fan of big venue concerts - I've been to tons, but I'm kinda over it. Unless you drop major cash your just watching it on the screen anyway - and I can do that at home with free beer and my couch. :)
I do like outdoor music fests and concerts at outdoor amphitheaters.

Food:
I like to cook - I'm not terrible at it either. I love pasta, vegetables, seafood and side salads with my meal. I like spicy things and my favorite delivery is Chinese.
The six things I could never do without
Not thee 6 things, but six of the things (in no particular order)
My i(devices)
A cold beer while I grill
Teaching my kids new things
The little things (simple pleasures)
Laughing - A Lot
My DVR (I hate commercials)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Starting a new, low maintenance, high residual income, web-based business that would allow extremely comfortable financial independence for me and my family. What....Doesn't everyone?
On a typical Friday night I am
Kids weeks: Having dinner with my kids - either out or home for movie/pizza/popcorn night.
Non-Kids weeks: maybe a happy-hour drink with friends or just home relaxing after the week - saving myself for a productive weekend or a Saturday night out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
...yea right.
You should message me if
...you want to. Why be shy?
