Over the three score and 14 hump and picking up speed to the next Big One! I am still kicking around in decent health and intend to enjoy the rest of the journey.
I grew up in Waimanalo & Kailua (Hawaii) but have spent the majority of my adult life in California & Washington states, while my Ohana (family) stayed on Oahu. In 2011 I started "snow birding" to the Ohana from Wa. , usually spend 4-6 months in the warmer weather. Now I am back in Puget Sound until cold weather sets into Puget Sound.
I am somewhat of an odd ball in the "consumer society" of today.. I embrace low technology (sometimes collect antique hand tools),do not use "social media", but am computer savy, have been in solar energy (power & heating) from the 70's, homesteaded for over 10 years, revel in organic gardens. I purchase most of my food these days at numerous Farmer's Markets, and generally would consider myself a vegetarian. Enjoy a craft beer or excellent wine's with my dishes.
I retired some years ago from that big airplane company in Wa. state but now call myself a fine art photographer, if you want to label me. I use "old school" cameras with REAL FILM !,. . primarily black/white, which is developed by me & then scanned & printed digitally. . . do have a few digi cameras and use them now and then.
Music tastes are varied, only rap plugs up the ear canals. Love to haunt dives that offer live Jazz !
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I would like to meet the woman without a long list of "he should...s", because I do not have a long list of "she should. . s." At our ages we either have baggage or have chucked it overboard to let the boat sail smoother. I prefer fast sailing.
I do have a "short list" thou - No Tabaco: I quit that stuff 30+ years ago and am now highly allergic to it. I am tolerate of 420 and do use it medically at times.
Religious or dogmatic agendas: I am an agnostic (more labels) but accept & enjoy world cultural and spiritual practices. We are of the same DNA history.
These two are my only deal breakers.
OK, that's the brief snipet of my life.... questions will be answered if you ask.
PLEASE READ THE NEXT SECTION.
Just a reminder, this site does not have means for me to see or respond to a "Like" or "Meet Me", so please send a short message, I will answere ! Also, if you have a bunch of "restrictions" for messages, check them. Aloha, Bill
2018 is my 75th year upon the planet. When I hit 50, I ventured across our fair land for 2 months. . . Now the plan is for a 4-6 MONTH tour throughout the USA & parts of Canada. Car camping primarily, but motels now & then for RnR (film developing),. . I now have a National Parks Passport & want to add some "visas". . .. SO. . .
Care to join me in 2018 for the Adventure ???
