I consider myself a smart and succesful man. I have a good job that I enjoy and have the opportunity to learn more and more about myself each day. I have many hobbies including reading, hiking, my dogs, watching and playing sports, playing poker with friends, and pretty much anything outdoors. I love camping and have a passion for backpacking. I hiked a section of the Appalachian Trail this past summer and it was an amazing experience. I would love to find a woman who was in to hiking and backpacking, also travel and adventure. I love my family and my two dogs are like my children. I have had them for 11 and 13 years respectively. I am giving this online dating thing one more shot after abstaining for quite a while.
