• I was born very young and quite small.
  • I have visited 42 countries, so far.
  • I worked 28 years for the same organization before in 2008 I took early retirement so I could travel the world. I plan to see as much of it as I am afforded.
  • I have not ridden nor driven nearly enough miles, reached nearly enough destinations, visited with nearly enough people, experienced nearly enough tastes, sights, smells.
  • I enjoy a quiet morning coffee.
  • I like dogs, but allergic to cats, lobster, and charlatans.
  • I’m under contract to Cairn Terror named Skye. (She made me write that.)
  • I’m a Formula 1 fan.
  • I’m very worried about the environment.
  • I’m very curious.
  • I love to progress, experience, learn, grow. To be stagnant, to be comfortable for too long, for me is to decay.
  • I’m handy with tools. I try.
  • I’ve thrice qualified for the Boston Marathon, but only ran it twice. My fastest marathon was in 3:09:45. My fastest 1/2 marathon was 1:24:??
  • Sunset is often my favourite colour. Sometimes it’s the colour of the clear mid-day sky.
  • I have no time for liars, manipulators, abusers, bullies, cheaters, racists, and selfish types. I’ve experienced more than enough shenanigans from those types.
  • I stand up for children, victims of abuse, and adults who have been disadvantaged, fallen through the cracks, or left behind due to no fault of their own.
  • The day after I retired I jumped on my overlarge motorcycle and started riding south. When the road ended at the most southern city in the world, I turned around and headed back north. On that trip I rode my motorcycle 65,000 km between New Brunswick, Canada and Ushuaia, Argentina.
  • In 2012 I bought a used motorcycle for $300 and rode through much of north Vietnam. I gave it to a local farmer when the Chinese knockoff kept breaking down. I bought a genuine Honda Cub 100cc and rode the rest of the way around Vietnam.
  • Wanderlust has bit me quite hard.
  • Less planning has meant more adventure.
