I love to travel. In my view, when we pass ... it's not who has the most stuff or money that matters, but who has accumulated the most experiences. I like to travel almost anywhere, but I'm prone to travel to a warm sunny locations, where T's, shorts, and sandals constitute formal attire. I'm fine in an evening jacket and tie too though.
Some words I use to describe myself are kind, polite, trustworthy, confident, loyal, compassionate, reliable, patient, loving, intelligent, and affectionate. I have a steady job with a steady employer. I am not a glass half-full person, ... rather my glass is mostly-full.
I have two fantastic boys ages 19 (away at college) and 11, and they are critically important to me. They split time with me, but I see them almost every day, which I love. I love spicy food - I can cook cajun dishes. Most of my reading is non-fiction, but I enjoy reading classic fiction also.
I am looking for companionship (and more) with a woman that enjoys a variety of outdoor activities (hiking in the Whites, skiing, golf/tennis, playing on the lake or ocean). If you are politically centrist or a bit of a lefty that's great; the far right-minded need not apply. I enjoy city and cultural activities too, and it's all about sharing and learning from each other ... so I DO NOT want somebody EXACTLY like me anyway. I want to learn from you too.

Remembering people and places
Planning fantastic vacations and trips
Birdsongs (I can identify bird species by their songs and calls)
Not making things bigger than they need to be
I love to watch movies in the theater on the big screen, and at home too, but not alone :) ... home has its advantages on those chillingly cold dark nights. I like all kinds of movies, except for horror (they scare me!)
My last reads are ... Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, The Granite Landscape, The Case for Constructivism, Crime and Punishment, Pride and Prejudice, Jane Eyre, Winter World; How Birds Migrate; Life in the Cold; Mom's House, Dad's House; After the Ice Age; Gatherings of Angels; Reading the Forested Landscape; Collapse; Applied Logistic Regression.
For music, I love my satellite radio - 1st Wave, Alt Nation, Classic Rewind, Classic Vinyl. I have pretty broad listening tastes including rock, alternative, jazz, and even some hip-hop. My iPod is loaded with U2, The Smiths, Radiohead, The Replacements (they are reforming this year - yay!!), The Clash, Cowboy Mouth, Morrissey, O.M.D., Big Audio Dynamite, Simple Minds, Squeeze and Robbie Williams.

If you feel astrological sign is an important consideration for a match ... then we probably won't make a match.
