A little more about me
I have many interest and for the most part willing to try anything once. I have traveled overseas (Philippines, Korea, Brazil, Argentina, Mexico) and all over in the US. I still gravitate to the Mississipi river around LaCrosse, WI, and loved Austin, TX (lived there almost 10 yrs) - and really enjoy the west coast (San Fransisco, Napa, etc).
