Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Hope I can meet some new people and show them around my neck of the woods. I suppose the Mississippi is the biggest draw in the area.
I had my first couch surfing experience in March of 2009. I don't think I could have asked for a better introduction to the concept. My host was great, along with another CS'rs who took me hiking, and another I never met but helped get a lost bag back to me.
Mountain Biking, Camping, Reading fiction and non-fiction books. Canoeing and road cycling are some new things I am enjoying.
Music, Movies, and Books
I enjoy reading all sorts of books. My two favorite authors are Carl Hiassen, and Elmore Leonard, when it comes to movies I love the many film adaptations of their books. Such as Strip Tease, or Jackie Brown. I also try and read non-fiction and enjoy Malcolm Gladwells books.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Helping my wifes family artificially inseminate their herd of Angus cattle. Living in Iowa I think I have better sense then many people of where our food comes from.
Having a baby with my wife and learning how quickly people can change and adapt to new situations.
Teach, Learn, Share
I have a canoe and a desire to travel the Mississippi in it for 3-4 days. That is an experience I am looking to share with someone!
