   Ah, it's always so difficult speaking of one's self. To start with I am single never married, no children. 6'2" 220Lbs blonde hair blue eyes. Born in May and though I don't follow astrology the behavioral description of Taurus fits me to a T.

  Honest to a fault, although I often have difficulty expressing emotion. The things that I value seem out of reach in today's society, and I am often glad that I'm not raising children in it. Now that I have found this forum I realize change can be brought about.

  I have little interest in following the Gregorian calendar nor any of the holidays associated with it. Artificial food drains the life out of me, as well as most scents I find irritating. I imagine building a life of abundant energy free from all of the worlds addictions. Caffeine,  nicotine, and sugar are what I struggle with. I do not watch television anymore, nor have I ever been a sports fanatic. I am a bit of a gearhead and gasoline is not something I am willing to give up. I am quite resourceful and intelligent, but a little lacking on the execution side. I think that getting away from the city and it's deadly diet, (That word was chosen for a reason, the English language is designed to oppress) would bring my energy levels back to my God given amounts. Everything in this world seems to be designed to oppress, depress, invert, degrade, and destroy. How to change that?  I would love to expand my spirituality to the point where I  am no longer affected by these things,  and that I could share my experiences with others in order to help lift them up a bit.  

  Greening the desert calls to me,and I often feel the urge to move west.  I  watch Bible studies online, I feel that there are important messages to be revealed on how to live, but I subscribe to no organized religion. There must be truth in the fact that the wages of sin are death and that the debt has been paid(traditional Christian value). Although I'm wary of that, as the number one lesson on this earth is that nothing in this life is free. Philosophically, I ponder, was I truly created here? Or was I tricked and trapped here, as in, is the matrix a documentary? One thing is for certain,  all forms of governance are the same entity wrapped in different disguise.

 Phenomics and etymology are the keys to comprehending the language that we languish in, that and soil biology and hydrology are my areas of interest at this time. Who knows what is next?  I enjoy working with metal and would like to build on that skillset in the future.  My ideal homestead must include a large energy efficient workshop to be comfortable in.

   
  I live life slowly and have aged very little.  My ideal partner would be 30-45 I suppose. Not sure if it really matters to put any other ridiculous requirements out there. I'm not really for or against marijuana or alcohol but I don't enjoy being around it all the time(the past is the past and I've made my mistakes as well). I've always been attracted to tall slender types though I don't make that a limiting factor. Eyes, voice, and brains are the things that truly get me. Salesmanship would be a key attribute that would fit well as I am gifted to acquire things but have difficulty getting rid of them when the time comes.


  Are you intrigued? Do want to gather sticks and mud and wire with me to assemble a new nest far away from the walking dead that overwhelm the population centers of the world?  If so you should be at least smart enough to locate my email on this site!

The obligatory photograph. I'm reasonably practical, grow a beard when it is cold. Short hair when the summer heat hits.

I should also add that I am currently located in Snohio,  but I'm not opposed to relocating, becoming migratory, or becoming 100% nomadic.

Snowbird is sounding kinda like the way to go sometimes!

Oops, I  thought the title would be a bit more humorous than it sounds. Looking at it again, it sounds as if I'm looking for  the ole' 1950s American Dream, let me assure that that is not the case.

I will insert a shameless plug to one of my favorite YouTube channels. I want what this guy has. I deserve nothing less, and will keep searching till I find it.



You are 1 in a billion or so, the odds are in my favor, and  I'm pretty lucky so cut those odds in half.

Hi Isabel, thank you for the reply,  I sent an email to the address you listed. I wouldn't mind chatting if you have time, but I doubt that I'll ever have a passport or be willing to cover my face to board an aircraft. Someday, in another world,  free from all of this fear, I would be able to rest my feet wherever I please on God's green earth without "papers!"

I realize that perhaps the email is only visible if you are a PIE holder?

User email addresses are default set to NOT show. Users can change this to allow others to see.

Users can PM other users without PIE.

Nothing permies does would impact the ability of one user account to send another user account an email.

We encourage sharing email addresses via PM rather than posting publish due to privacy reasons but that's user choice too.

Good luck meeting your special person. :)
