Went fishing last weekend. Taking an Orvis fly casting class on July 16th. I am that person who will use my fly rod with real bait if the fish like it.
I have learning French on my bucket list and decided not to wait any longer. I am a military veteran. I loved my time in the service, lived in Europe and Asia, met folks from every continent. I love to travel and try eating the local cuisine (from snacks off carts, 5 course formal dinners, bar food, to all styles of restaurants, anything from the BBQ).
I am very curious - I like to read where my interest leads me. For most of my life I was very career oriented and a serious work-a-holic, but lately find my schedule is much more flexible. Friends and family are important to me. I go back to visit school friends in Idaho as much as possible (good fishing there too :) )
I love to laugh - and be with people who make me laugh. My favorite game is Balderdash - I am a horrible liar, but love to try to get folks to believe my made-up balderdash definitions... You know it is my bogus play if you play with me and one of the answer choices is "the soft underbelly of a sea urchin".
The best part of camping is starting, feeding and poking at the fire. My brother is a fireman - so the poking is at a minimum when he comes.
I like to cook (sometimes my experiments turn out good, sometimes they make for a good story later :-O ) my homemade beef jerky rocks!
I like to fish, snow ski and take photographs. I have an entrepreneur's spirit, but have not found my fluglebinder yet. :)
I am a bad guesser - so if you have something on your mind just tell me. I promise to do the same.
What was the last thing that made you laugh out loud?
Fall is my favorite season - Halloween is my favorite holiday.
I love spending time outside with friends.
Are you a carnivore - can you grill a rare steak for me?
Do you like cream in your coffee, heffeweitzen beer, gravy on chicken fried steak, real butter?
If it is a veggie I probably prefer it raw
My recipe entry has been published in a Southern Living Cookbook
I love to be outside
I grew up skiing the mountains in Idaho and love going back to visit friends
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I like to meet for coffee or for a drink for a first date. I think you can tell pretty quickly if you hit it off with the other person over a cup of coffee or a beer.
