A little about me...
A very playful guy. Caring, thoughtful, kindhearted. I'm an early retired businessman. Enjoy adventure. I’ve traveled extensively but also enjoy visiting National Parks here. Did Yellowstone in the snow at 30 below. I loved visiting all the animals and wonders of nature. The young bison were playing and having so much fun! I tried to get a photo of the wolves, but just missed them. In my business career I worked hard and played hard. I would try to take time out to play as often as possible. Fortunately, the work afforded me the opportunity to climb a few big mountains and ski down, sail, Scuba Dive and conduct my private photo hunt for a rare animal in the Himalayas.
My passions are appreciating nature, protecting it, giving back where I can. Singing, the Arts. I'm slowing down a little, but not too much. Individual sports interests- Track and Field, tennis, roller skiing. Biathlon and XC racing in the winter, rafting, biking, hiking in the summer. I’m anticipating a fall knee replacement, so I can keep playing. Maybe even get back to skiing powder, a lifetime passion.
About the one I'm looking for...
I enjoy intelligence, the ability to appreciate nature, kindness. I enjoy doing things together and apart. Someone that knows themselves well. Knows what about themselves in relationships has and hasn’t worked. Exciting, sensual, fun in bed, willing to learn from each other. Please no drama queens or high maintenance ladies. Someone that has room in their life for me and the ability to make us a prime priority, as I would.
Please no Cats or Horses. More of a dog person.
I'd just like to add...
Surprise me. Tell me something about you no one knows. For example: when I was younger I got several blue ribbons for flower arranging.

My Top Interests:
Nature and Outdoors
I find peace, adventure and serenity in the mountains. Spend as much time as I can there.
I love visiting the National Parks, the wildlife and amazing scenery.
Scuba trips and a tourist trip to China are on the near term agenda.
I enjoy staying fit, with gym visits, roller skiing and walking to keep in shape.
I'm not really looking forward to my knee replacement, but coming out of rehab should be fulfilling.
Getting back to tennis, golf, hiking- skiing, biathlon in the winter and skate skiing year round.
A good friend took up pole vaulting at 77. So I've got a few good years left.
