I love the challenge of a hike and the thrill of discovering what is around the next turn. I like history, politics, travel, reading, learning new things, and old things (buildings, houses, furniture, historical places, even old books and movies). I am spunky, sincere, playful, passionate, adventurous, down to earth, affectionate, creative, sassy, and open-minded as well as a direct communicator. I have a core set of values and principles but am always willing to learn and consider new ideas and perspectives. We might not always agree, but an uninformed disagreement is ignorant and narrow-minded- very annoying.
Personal responsibility is very important to me. I am the captain of my soul and the victim of nothing. The occasional bad decision results in a lesson learned. It usually takes me at least twice to learn a lesson. :-)
I served in the Army for 8 years and loved it. The military was a wonderful foundation for everything in my life.
So..... I'm on here looking for companionship. I have three kids who range from 8-13, so I prefer someone kid friendly. I also prefer someone who likes country music and has conservative or libertarian political views. And if you got excited about the Rand Paul filibuster - bonus points!!
