Live life a bit differently...
Adventurous, automotive enthusiast and dabbling with a camera; I love nature & wildlife. I really, really like cold weather. A gadget freak, F1 fanatic and I like sarcastic, witty humor... I try to do different & new stuff constantly and I disdain routines.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
To discover the world, one place at a time. CS provides a great perspective by putting travelers in touch with locals! The camaraderie is great, no matter where you bump into a CSer in the world and that's quite rare in this era.
My CS mileage is quite limited; I first surfed while stuck in Canada for 2 months... Good times! I've loved every CS experience since then.
Photography, motorsports (watching, haha!), astronomy, hiking, reading and long road trips!
Sometimes, I go flying with a local pilots group although I don't have a license. I generally man the radios :)

Music, Movies, and Books
I don't have a particular type.
Music is very eclectic, books are generally whatever tickles my fancy: world history, fiction, science, satire & some light reads; but I tend to read more than 1 book at a time.
I prefer foreign/independent/comedy movies. I also watch the newer action-hero type movies for the awesome CGI. Apollo 13, Top Gun, Rush & Le Mans rank high. Top Gear deserves an honorable mention :)
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Solo non-stop 17-hr drive from Calgary to Yellowknife for the über-rare 2012 Venus Transit
Good memories: Sunrise over the desert in Utah, meteor showers over the Californian high desert, cruises on the PCH, dune riding in Dubai & being charged by an elephant in Maasai Mara.
