In His Own Words

About him

Well, it's never easy writing about oneself, especially as I never thought I would be doing this. So what can I say?. Well, I am easy going, have a good sense of humour and do try to be sensitive. I have a great sense of adventure, having cycled across the USA and extensively in Europe, ski-ed, walked the GR54 in France and have run competitively throuhout Britain, France, Switzerland, Italy and Austria. I have plans for further expeditions and would so much like to share these and other experiences with others. I am more at home out on the fells than when at home it seems; some would say I am more like a dog, needing constant exercise, running around doing pointless things (in their minds) and like to be fed and watered. I do not believe that once you reach a certain age that you need to put your feet up, get the dog to bring you your slippers and smoke a pipe whilst watching t.v. Young at heart most definitely.

Outside of work my main interests are cycling, walking, gardening (why can't plants have wheels and not roots) and helping to train search dogs for mountain rescue, taking them from raw recruit creating havoc to totally reliable graded search dog out looking for missing persons. My part is to lie out in the fells in all weathers (even in the sun sometimes!) waiting for our four legged friends to make a find on me and go and tell their handler. Nothing better than having a bouncy collie barking in my face and slobbering over me (not).

Regarding music, listening to classical music with the lights turned down, possibly accompanying a good meal by candle light (is that too romantic?). Ok, just listening to classical music with the lights turned down.

Pet hates - having others loud music being imposed on me; litter and wasps....oh yes....definitely...wasps!.

About his ideal match

My ideal match?, not sure there is one. Needs to be someone with good sense of humour most definitely, easy going, adventurous, keen and active outdoor person. Someone who is reliable, honest, generous, generally happy and sees the best in others. Someone who enjoys snuggling up to after a good day out when it is dark, wet and windy outside............or just enjoys snuggling up to!. Someone to have fun with and just enjoy each others company. Must be young at heart.
