My self-summary
Oh so happy when I'm twirling barefoot on the grass at a music festival. Sitting in the soft light of sunrise above treeline or out in the desert is sublime. Speaking with the locals in Peru or Ecuador is stimulating. Swimming the width of a lake or reservoir is invigorating. Soul gazing is deepening. Merkaba meditation is focusing. Sacred geometry is enlightening.
Do you believe that we are all equally responsible for the co- creation of a better world?
What I’m doing with my life
Massaging tired skiers.
Listening to the birds welcome the new day.
Exploring some place new every year, be it foreign, or domestic.
Hiking every trail leading to beautiful views.
Swimming across every reservoir that looks inviting.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
My next romance, my next travel adventure (bicycle tour of Ireland),(another trek in Nepal), the spiritual evolution of the human race.

A recent article in a Lonely Planet newsletter ("Warning, solo travel makes you undatable") , gave me pause to see what I have come to see as normal after several years of traveling solo around the world. The following is a series of paraphrased snippets............

"A person who loves solo travel is seen as a free spirit. A true nomad who’s broken free from the shackles of society and dared to march to the beat of their own drum. The solo traveller doesn’t need another’s reassurance, they make big bold decisions every single day. They are the ones with wild fire in their eyes, who trek miles to soak up the perfect sunset. They make switching countries look as easy as changing their pants. They live life, every single second of every single day, for themselves. In a society that encourages conformity, this makes them uninhibited soul warriors.

Your very core will be strengthened. The kindness of strangers will open up a part of your heart that you had no idea existed. As a solo traveller you’ll experience the very best the world has to offer. Any stereotypes or tales of whole cultures or lands being dangerous will dissolve as you learn the truth. But your love life, well I’m sorry to break it to you, but solo travel will throw a huge anti-cupid grenade right onto that. Boom!

Living out of a bag for extended periods of time became a way of life. Not having anyone to impress or keep up appearances for is liberating. Solo travel strips you of your need to present yourself as a perfectly polished human as you quickly learn it’s what lies beneath that counts.

Try as you might to conform you will never see settling in a conventional life as a viable option now. Your only solution is to find someone wild and free to run with you."

Not many folks out there in far away lands living the backpacker lifestyle past the age of 50. I may need wheels for my bag the next time I get off a plane, but I won't need a tour guide or stared hotel to be happy. It would be nice to have your company in far away lands. It would also be nice to join you where-ever you have, or would like to have a home base, here on Turtle Island, or abroad as long as you have some appetite for adventure travel.
On a typical Friday night I am
looking for the best live music scene
treating Friday like any other day
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Over thinking makes me slow to get going. I don't like to make decisions when there are many good choices.
You should message me if
you love nature and outdoor activity
you value sensitivity more than machismo
