I'm ethical, honest, and loyal, almost to a fault. I'm an avid hiker, biker and skier (with some tennis, volleyball and other sports tossed in occasionally) who enjoys outdoor activities. I am a widowed father of 3 wonderful kids and my main preoccupation is taking care of them. I'm also a scientist, astronomer and teacher. I travel around the wold for work and fun - though not too much. I'm looking for a partner who enjoys talking about the day-to-day ups and downs of life, who likes to explore locally and the world, and who is interested in, well, just about everything.
At the end of August, my kids and I spent two weeks hiking and camping near Lake Placid and Acadia. We had a great time hiking, camping, climbing, biking and mini-golfing. There is something special about living outdoors, despite the bug bites, uncomfortable sleeping conditions, and the smell of my eldest daughter's feet in the tent. On two of the nights, the sky was so clear that the milky way seemed to create a rip across the sky. It was hard to return, though school and soccer tournaments drove us back.
