Does Honest, Outdoorsy, Intelligent, Educated and wanting kids sound good? If so read on. I enjoy anything outdoors. Backpacking, canoeing, and traveling are tops on the list. I've got a B.S in physics and a M.S. in Mech. Engg., I never finished my PhD. I did research involving fiberglass highway bridges, grain dust explosions, NASA space suit gloves and many other interesting things. My work has often won International recognition. I've taught engineering at the University for many years. Every once in a while, when they need me, I teach a class in Electrical Engineering. Everything is paid for now, so money is not a real problem. I can't say I've got lots, but enough. Time is what is always short, and I do what I can to maximize the use of my free time.
I am originally from New Jersey, but now own 20 acres near Tuttle Creek Lake. Relocation is not out of the question. I know I can be happy just about anywhere, But it would be hard to leave what I've got here, good job flexibility, great location, big lake, lots of trees, deer munching my flowers in the yard (oftentimes really good comes with some bad), wild turkeys in the woods (most of the rest of the "Turkeys" live 10 miles away in town :-), good pasture, no mortgage, and it's been home for more than a few years.
I've spent the last 6 years sailing and working on a sailboat, now planing to sail around the world. Check out jheld mysite com. Lets head off to the wild blue yonder in search of the rest of our life. Want to join me and find it together? I have chosen to not use a car for over a year now, often ride a bicycle 50 miles on Saturday going to yardsales and a community potluck music jam.
Science is mostly my religion. I was brought up with church as an important part of my life. I do believe in God because science doesn't explain everything. I live by the golden rule and wish everybody else did. I do believe that church does play an important role in raising children. I just have problems with accepting organized religions and the fact that most of them are intolerant of other religions. I'd like to bicycle with packs for a month. I've done it on my motorcycle. Sailing the Caribbean would be fun, Now I'm preparing a boat to circumnavigate the world. Actually see the world, getting around is not the real goal. How about canoeing the Erie Canal? Or hiking the Pacific Crest Trail? Or Machu Picchu? the great wall of China or the grand canal? It doesn't make too much difference what I do as long as there's somebody like YOU to do it with. I'm 59 now, I hate to lie but the right women don't find me and having kids is too important to not lie. When I had the ad at 50 I spent all my time telling older women that I really do want kids, this cuts that down a little.
I know most people don't want a long distance relationship, I'm no different, I'd love to find someone local but haven't yet. So here I am advertising on the net and here you are reading my profile. If your still reading, why not give me a shout, it can't hurt, even if all you just want to do is say "Hi." I'll say "Howdy" back at ya, you can never have too many friends. ---- more about age --- Really I'm 38 with 20 years experience, (I'm like a well maintained 15 yr old Lincoln Mk7, which just happens to be what I used to drive, when I'm not driving one of my sports cars, pickups or Subaru 4x4 wagon, economical, sporty, and stylish in a classy package.) Normally wear jeans and a western shirt, cowboy or hiking boots. They tell me I have great eyes (blue); there's lot's of feeling in them. My wants and activity put me right in the mid 30's; I'm stuck there (not a bad thing) till I find someone to enjoy kids and the rest of our life with. I believe in friends first, that's important. If you have read this far, Send me mail you'll find my address on my site. I do have a glass of wine or a beer every once in a while, but there are so many on here that you cannot contact or will not show up in searches if you check social drinking, so I checked do not drink for that reason. Again I hate to lie, but, I hate spending my life alone without kids much more. Sometimes you have to do things you don't like to do.
