Introduction

Thank you for stopping by. Hopefully you will find an interesting person.

Wondering if our paths will cross in some wild and beautiful place in the Rocky Mountains. If you find yourself traveling towards one of the Rocky Mountain parks in Alberta, British Columbia or even Montana I'd be glad to try and meet you to enjoy vistas and meadows found along the trails.

I hope you have a pleasant spring. I am looking forward to the renewed vigor of spring in the mountains that follows the melt of snow, warmer temperatures, growth, and regeneration.

May God bless you in your search for friends and future relationships.

What I'd like to do on a first date...

Dance along a mountain trail. Talk while enjoying the vistas.

My past relationships have taught me...

Power bars are not needed when hiking. Instead, take along freshly made banana-chocolate chip muffins. A small tub of these tasty delights will last all day and win friends along the trail.

I am quite content with my successfully single status. There is no rush to move beyond being friends. Someday God will show me the right person. Until then I have no problem being single.

Be the individual I was created as to be. This must be a commitment from both individuals. Although individuals will grow together with commitment to each other, they must be jointly allowed to be the person they are inherently. Facades don't survive.

To me, being an Adventist means...

Is attending services, meeting in a church or worshiping in God's second book, Nature? I find that experiencing nature, God's Creation and palette, is an important part of my spiritual life.

Walking into almost any SDA Church be it Tucson, Arizona; Moscow, Russia;, Manjimup, Western Australia or many places in between I will find people with a common set of beliefs. It is also a small world - there is often somebody there whom either we've met before or we know somebody in common.

Being an Adventist is more than a religion or title. It is a lifestyle. Even without the title of an SDA, but by believing in personal Bible study and conviction one can be an Adventist without subscribing to the religious and political label carried by the SDA church.

In five years, I see myself

Subjecting myself to three haircuts. Haircuts are not bad but having been in a career that consumed virtually all my free time I wasn't able to work with children and young adults as I had always desired. My answer was grow hair and donate it to Locks of Love.

Figure out what to do now that I am not working on a daily basis. Do I just enjoy life for a few years, start a new career, become a permanent volunteer for worthy causes or go back to school for something else?

Live up to the title - The Wanderer - that my friends have attached to me.

My favorite Bible passage is...

I am preparing a home for you and some day you will join me there - Hardy's paraphrase.

One final thing I'd like to mention...

Thank you for stopping by for a glimpse of who I am. I harbor an eclectic mix of attributes and values. I once thought I?d be an outdoor educator, but took a few stray turns and found myself in a very good career without a real definition. My job provided opportunities to see North America, visiting states from Alaska to Florida as well as the occasional opportunity to work in other countries. Some of the highlights have been: spending 5 weeks paddling in the Boundary Waters Wilderness Area; teaching ecosystem management in Florida, managing a prescribed fire in the Dakotas, as well as opportunities monitor grizzly bears, watch Canada lynx, deliver emergency personnel to incidents and repair remote radio facilities. It is hard to imagine a more diverse and enjoyable job if you will call it that.

Travel is a passion and a way to rejuvenate for the new challenges. My other passion - and even more passionate about - is helping children or youth become acquainted with and develop their appreciation for the natural world they are surrounded by. In my spare moments I enjoy anything outdoors, playing the violin and wondering if I?ll ever be home long enough to have a cat?something I hope to do soon.

Traits of people I typically find myself with are: intelligent and witty; confident with who they are; an adventurous spirit and enjoyment of fine arts; compassionate of those around them; trustworthy and honest. I find the greatest enjoyment spending time with people with diverse interests, a zest for life, passion for the outdoors; similar personal values and have a passion for their professional life. I look forward to hearing from each of you who enjoys helping and listening to others, hiking, backpacking, bicycling, skiing, kayaking, just enjoying a calm day outdoors or an evening of chamber music. It is OK to slow down once in a while. I am not a paying member of this site but creativity, trying something related to hot or yah, with my username, without the possessive 's on the end, will allow communication.

People around describe my persona as always willing to listen; loyal and considerate; willing to watch out for coworkers and friends; a wealth of hidden knowledge, an intellectual and genius (the latter I try to deny) and easy to talk with, an independent individualist. Close friends will warn about an uncontainable memory. People often comment that I take the time to work with and listen to them, helping them develop the tools they need for success. Friends often ask why I am still single and then answer the question with their next thought -- You need a very special person to match your character.

If you are anything like me, you wonder if there is anybody buried in this mass of people that you know or have met. Beware, there are, and even strangers will find you in the seemingly most remote locals.

. . .Carpe Diem!
