When alone I enjoy playing the guitar. I also enjoy cooking and trying new recipes. Give me a great microbrewed beer, fish in the grill, some veggies and good company and I'm as happy as I can be.
I love the outdoors. A great day for me is to hike in the Red River Gorge or fishing or kayaking along Elkhorn Creek. Roadtrips along the back roads, small town tours, antique-filled barns, old general stores, unique landmarks.
I am a safety manager for an international environmental consulting company. This allows me the opportunity to travel some, mainly along the eastern US. Overall I travel about 20% of my time.
Confession: When I turned 38 my hair started to move around. Once a year I have to pluck ONE hair that grows two inches below my current hair line. It grows there to remind me that vanity will never be an issue for me. I feel young for my age, with the exception of an occassional bad knee when hiking. When I'm around someone I enjoy being around I tend to be a little high energy and that knee pain goes away. Enough about my hair and my knee.
I love hikes to a waterfall; beaches...the smells, the sounds, the sun, the people; I love sleeping in on rainy days, feet in my lap during a movie; a dog or two by the fireplace, the smell of freshly cooked onions and garlic, rosemary and baked chicken basted in real butter, beer.......homemade preferred. I enjoy visiting historical places, walking where soldiers walked, distilleries. I like creek fishing, kayaks, canoes, boats....lunch on a little bend in the creek with some great cheese, summer sausage and wine.
When bored I do things like fill out really long profiles. Have fun out there!
I read some fiction but mostly enjoy historical non-fiction. Just finished Killing Lincoln.
