Interest

My husband and I live for adventures.  We go on a lot of motorcycle trips all over the country, and sometimes travel abroad.  I love nature, photography, arts & crafts, nutrition, meditation, fitness, and enjoying life by and large.  I would like to broaden my knowledge of all things, but mostly survival skills, self-defense, and self-sustainability (agrarian hobbies, etc.).  In 10 years, I see myself being part owner of a Harley mechanic shop alongside my husband.
