I'll start with this. If I friend request you, I already fanned. That is, unless your profile is set to friends only, in which case I will when you let me know you accepted.

I'm a disabled Veteran who used to collect ex wives. Looking back, I am the poster child for the "catch and release" program.
I have a lot of physical challenges and I have made a lot of workarounds in my life.
I eat very healthy and can share my diet which helped me lose 60+ pound in 18 months which is remarkable because I cannot become active, refer to my physical challenges. I am very close to my ultimate goal but these last 5 pounds won't hurt at all.
I road trip a lot. Since the shutdowns started in 2020, I have driven more than 40,000 miles in 46 states. My goal is not to visit all 50, but to visit every single county. I am just short of 75% complete with 28 states where I have visited every single county. I have met people in every state and have become permanent friends with many of them, and send postcards when I visit some interesting places, and in one particular case, I sent a birthday gift because the location's name fit and I was there by coincidence right before her birthday. Some of the cool places I have visited:
Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket
Montague Point, New York
Headwaters of the Mississippi
Geographic Center of the lower 48 states
Field of Dreams film site
Wabash County (cannonball) Indiana museum
Monument Valley
Death Valley
Grand Coulee Dam
Hoover Dam
Branson, Missouri
Mardi Gras in New Orleans (by Navy aircraft carrier)
Kennedy Space Center
Sturgis, South Dakota
Great Falls, Montana
Avenue of the Giants (sequoias) California
Solar Eclipse in eastern Tennessee
Zion National Park
Saratoga Springs (Revolutionary Battlefield) National park.
Gettysburg National Battlefield
The White House (twice)
Lake Superior Shipwreck Museum (Edmond Fitzgerald)
Both ends of US-1, Key West and Fort Kent, Maine
Loneliest Highway, US-50 across Nevada
Tombstone, AZ
Every Fulton County in the USA (just finished this one)
And many of the popular places as well.
I have right now, just a few places I want to visit, or experiences I want to have. Specifically:
See a show at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville
See the Mormon Tabernacle Choir in person.
Attend the Kentucky Derby in a rented tux and tophat escorted by a redhead wearing a green dress and homemade bonnet.
As a Veteran, I am fortunate that I don't have PTSD or TBI. Some of the things I have seen on here I believe could trigger someone suffering with those so I am very conscience of the Veteran suicide problem and Veteran homelessness in many places.
I did not serve just to hear people say, Thank you for your service. Sometimes it makes me uncomfortable. It was a privilege to serve, I have been able to visit some very interesting places around the world, and have made thousands of friends in every place I served. Going along with my traveling, I have had a few dinners paid for me by someone I just met, or the business itself. I go out of my way to find maw and paw restaurants when possible.
Two hobbies I have are gardening, both flowers and vegetables, and birdwatching. I don't take either to extreme, and I have only medium success in them. I'll share some photos of the birds who came to my window for seeds. I use a garden stool that I can sit on and move myself around my yard.
