Hi. You may be asking yourself the question, "Who is this guy?" Well, that's a good question. I am a good old Jersey boy, even though I hate to admit the title ("I am who I am . . . deal with it" and "I'm sorry" are just two of the responses I give people when they ask my where I am from). Years ago I left home and shed the accent and have been in search of the good life, as well as the meaning of it, ever since.
The places my journeys have taken me have been exotic, breathtaking, wondrous, harsh, dusty, cold, hot as hell, tranquil, stormy, etc. And, yet they are still not over. Currently, I've semi-parked myself in the beautiful place that is Yellowstone National Park (at least for my summers). I work as a trail maintenance worker, which may be a rare occupation on this website. Basically, for those of you who don't know, I go out in the woods and make trails safer and more accessible to the public. This involves a lot of camping, back breaking work, and living in awesome places, while getting to see bears, wolves, bison, elk and all those other little and big critters that live out west.
In the winters, I do whatever I want! I get six months off to have fun, work a little, travel, basically act as a retired person until spring starts again. Lately, I've found myself volunteering on farms, making maple syrup, learning to ski (only been once, but I'm working on it), volunteering at a food bank, paragliding (my newest fun hobby), and traveling to exotic locales like Costa Rica and living there for two months. I live day by day and never know what I will decide to do next.
That being said, I'm looking to settle down a bit, and by that I mean have adventures with some awesome companion and then have bunches of stories that I can share with my grandchildren. I'm looking for someone with a sense of adventure, someone not bogged down by planning their life away and being stuck to a way of life they aren't happy with. I am looking for someone who is flexible and open minded when it comes to trying new things, new activities, and someone who has the motivation to do so. I dislike to sit around and do nothing (unless I've earned it after a hard working day, and even then it's got to be really hard working). I prefer to be out and about, and would like to meet someone with a similar outlook.
Sure there is more to me than just that, but it is a good start to get someone interested. I always love talking about life and the deeper things about it, so if you're interested and want to talk, get in contact with me! Look forward to some good conversations!
