I'm intellectually curious and enjoy learning new things, meeting new people (though reserved at first) and visiting new places. My favorite mode of travel is automobile. I especially like driving "off road" in my Jeep. I read mostly non-fiction. My friends say that I have a great sense of humor (but what do they know?). I like animals but prefer dogs, the larger the better. I also like to do crossword puzzles I can live without "high maintenance" companions as I'm more more of a jeans or shorts kind of guy.
