A little about me...
Grew up in the Midwest. Joined the Navy at 18 retired as middle grade officer after 26 yrs. MSEE. Lived on both coasts and on ships in Mediterranean, Caribbean and Asian waters. Retired to farm in Oregon. Sold out and have been travelling/volunteering since. Like several month foreign trips, hostels, local street food, no organized trips. Last year taught conversational English in China. I may hot be a great partner but I am a fair one, well read, financially comfortable and (I hope) intellectually stimulating. I also like seasonal/situational activiies of gardening, mushrooming and cooking the results.
Since 2008, I have spent most winters in the south--a daughter lives in Charleston, SC and I used her a a home base to travel around. This winter, 2012, I bought a small townhouse condo, returned to Oregon to pack and ship my personal effects and moved in here in September. Since then, I have been remodeling. The place is livable but I will be painting for a while yet. I am looking forward to the Charleston Cup and oyster roasts and more travels and volunteering.,.
About the one I'm looking for...
Fairly slim and fit, secure in yourself, interested in and willing to travel. Reasonably liberal political views no heavy Evangelical leanings. Assertive without being vicious.
I'd just like to add...
Sadly, I am not a musician. I enjoy all sorts of live performances, festivals. I have enjoyed sports, games and dancing but am a little stiff just now but still willing. I am a much more gregarious person with a partner/foil and hope to provide that to another.
