I have just come back( Sept. 1, 2014) from checking out the Santa Barbara area for living and have decided that Southern Cal. is not for me. I also went back to Mt. Shasta where I lived in the 80's. My latest plan is Mt. Shasta in the summer and Maui in the winter. So PLEASE take that into consideration when you answer my profile.
Easy going, capable, strong physically and emotionally. Truthful, adventurous. Animal and nature lover. Love the ocean and mountains. Love to touch and be touched. I have a massage license but work mostly on friends. I work with Autistic children and adults and fully enjoy the challenges and revelations. I am also a nurse with emergency room experience ( Lake Tahoe). That coupled with being a ski patrolman for 15 years and surviving Vietnam has given me a background that enables me to tackle the most difficult situations and prevail. I like to to fix things like my cars before I have to take them to a mechanic. I am very generous with my time and resources but truly believe that it is better to "teach someone to fish rather than give them a fish".
I like to find ways to encourage people to laugh or smile- I have a huge rubber ducky mounted on the hood of my truck. It's made a lot of people laugh on Maui and I do get the occasional quack.
