46 year old happily married, father of 2 and Cub Scout Den Leader who enjoys a good cup of Coffee & books,& likes cold autumn afternoons. Id rather be outside, than inside. It doesn't matter if it's hiking, camping, fishing, hunting,standing out in the middle of the woods listening to the wind blow through the trees, or driving through the countryside on a late autumn afternoon.. My favorite place to be is Pisgah National Forest.
