About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Driving back home, west to east, after many bicycling adventures, running adventures, living in new places adventures, seeing this vast and varied country adventures (this is an ongoing process, obviously).

ABOUT ME

This is never fun. What do I write about myself? Actually, take a look at my interests. That will tell you quite a bit.

Additionally, I'm a tidy, well-mannered, quiet guy who gets along well with most anybody. Enjoy the occasional drink at a bar, but prefer to spend my time with coffee, a book, a pad and pen, or a laptop, quietly. I also love just wandering around new places, or old places, with or without my camera. I like alone time and togetherness time. And I like vegetables a lot.

PHILOSOPHY

"I've lived out my melancholy youth. I don't give a fuck anymore what's behind me, or what's ahead of me. I'm healthy. Incurably healthy. No sorrows, no regrets. No past, no future. The present is enough for me. Day by day. Today!" -H. Miller

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Couchsurfing is lovely. Great way to meet new people. Great way to save some money if you're on a budget.

Myself, I'm here because… I dunno. It seems so obvious. As a host you get to help someone out, meet someone you wouldn't otherwise, share stories, what have you. As a surfer you're being helped out, which can often times be invaluable, and you get to save money for other bits of your travels, and again, meeting people.
