I've been to Australia and want to travel the world! I also tend to be pretty sarcastic.
I grew up on a farm in the middle of nowhere Michigan, raised a bunch of different animals. I like the outdoors but don't get out as much as I should.
Also, I've met Bill Nye the Science Guy.
I've built and raced a solar car across the Australian outback and I've worked on spacecraft resupplying the International Space Station.

A good book
I'm an engineer/nerd through and through, so more often than not I'm thinking of something cool to build or looking at cool things other people have built. Instructables.com is amazing.
