About Me

CURRENT MISSION (I have not been on Couchsurfers in a while so this is an update as of Feb 2017.

I am currently a student at UCA. My major is Personal Happiness. That mandates that I do nothing stressful. No tests! Homework when I want.
I have no plans to graduate. UCA allows me to live my life to the fullest.

I was a camping canoeist. I was fortunate to have the Buffalo Natonal River so close. When it flows, it is a canoe camper's dream. When it doesn't, the Ozarks have several excellent spring fed camping streams including the Current and Eleven Point in Southern Missouri.

Never stop learning.
Be respectful of nature.
Be willing to accept new ideas.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I enjoy meeting new people. I have had some amazing couchsurfing experiences.


Student at UCA taking courses that interest me and loving it.
Canoe camping. Outdoors. Sharing it with others.
Trying to pin down that very elusive thing called truth.

Music, Movies, and Books

Related to paddling and nature(human and otherwise).

Movies and music produced long before most people today were born.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

My life began late in life. I was born again when I bought my first canoe in 1999. It has enabled me to live. Prior to that, I existed.

And when my legs began to give out I found UCA and school is now my focus.

Teach, Learn, Share

We are all afflicted with Cognitive Dissonance.
The greater our religious, social, financial or political affiliation, the greater the affliction.
We hear what we want to hear.
We believe what we want to believe.
Truth becomes irrelevant.

What I Can Share with Hosts

A room with a futon and sharing experiences.
