Date men and women from United States / Nevada / Elko

Date a soulmate from Elko, United States. Gold mines (abandoned), ghost towns, remote mining camps, quads, jeeps, bottle digging, have a mining museum (closed), simple easygoing fun. Me..? i live in rural Nevada and have family in Maine. nevada has more mines than any other state. and there is no close second. .. looking for desertrat ladies, not looking for ladies that go out clubing. i love remote areas and getting away from "man". exploring the back roads, abandoned mines, camps and small ghost towns. my life isn't Gold's gym or the dance club. most would find it boring, but i like it.
i change the city on my header, to help do searching.
other interests are panning for gold, prospecting and playing with mining claims, some bottle digging, token screening in town, rock hounding, dump scratching, a little metal detecting.. and collecting for the mining museum.
after high school i mined underground (utah) thru my 20s. the '82 reccession left me looking for a new career. moved east for a good job doing service work at several of the nuclear power plants. in 1995 i quit when i turned 40 and moved to nevada. the money is poor, but the life is rich.
i've always owned a 4wheel drive. tho 4 years ago i started using a quad to explore. have good health.. all my fingers, teeth 95% of my hair. i'm irish/Swiss with just a touch of doberman. don't do crazy stuff like... jumping out of planes, bungie jumping, cliff climbing or joining the liberals. but exploring 100s of feet underground is cool.. and safe.. i think??
can't play the guitar, drums or even spoons. sorry.. i'm NOT religious..NO bible thumpers... tho i'm still sympathetic fair. dress casual, keep a clean orderly home, clean body clothes. file and save records too much. conservative, but not a republican. don't care for bush or obama.
political views..? give women free choice on abortion. close ALL the borders. tho i don't do any drugs.. it's time to legalize pot. 10 years of war and over 4000 dead young men women. it's sickening, we need real leadership. bush obama are losers. gays..? should have limited rights. no teaching in school, no going in military.
i'm 80% a loner. always own a friendly female doberman. when up in the hills it's usually just me and the dog. but i do socialize, go to the city, do crowds.. love a rock concert. eating at Outback. like greasy spoons like denny's and east coast Waffle House. or the local pub (we have two) for some pool or NFL. or some friendly poker at someone's home. i'm not the life of the party, don't have an outgoing personality, but nor am i shy. prefer small groups, like 4 to 10.
my weight is 205, but my healthy weight should be 180#s. yes.. i eat anything. never had TV "service" till 2001. (marriage) tho i would rent movies sometimes. just ended an 8 year marriage 4 years ago. no real drama.. just not much in common. i liked the mountains and she liked romance novels and romance movies. and lot's of'em. "we" had no kids, but she had 4.
don't hunt, fish or own a gun. tho i'm an NRA member. would like to try hunting tho. every time i go to buy a gun.. i end up with another mining artifact. Can't dance. could learn, tho highly unlikely. attend church about twice a year.. all funerals. have had very long hair at times, tho now it's very short. like classic rock, some 50s honky tonk, some blues. the Doors, Stones, Seger, Carol King
Patsy Cline, Dwight Yoakam, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Lynyrd Skynyrd
might be look'n for a lady that's 1/2 desertrat, 1/2 hippie, girl next door, tomboy, 1/2 hillbilly, 1/2 redneck... is that too many 1/2s..? wow.she's gonna be 500 pounds!!
i am romantic to you only. but not a flirt ever.. i'm intimate, affectionate, realistic, practical, one woman guy.
now you know as much about me as my doberman... Later...
