My work involves research in the outdoors and the conservation of wildlife, so I have a pretty strong environmental ethic. However, I don’t own a single piece of tie-dye clothing. I take a lot of enjoyment in my work and that’s where most of my time and energy goes these days. I used to be an avid outdoor athlete (lots of climbing, skiing, kayaking, etc.) but for the most part I’m in retirement due to the demands of my job. If that’s your thing, good on ya, but just know that it’s unlikely I’m your next adventure partner. I’ll enjoy hearing your stories though. I still try to stay in shape. I enjoy international travel and have had the good fortune to do so for my research (mostly Central America).
an internet connection (ok, but only if I'm in the wilderness),
The contradictory nature of this list is not lost on me.
