A World of Experiences - Past and Future

At last, I have found a community of people who have a common goal of gaining common knowledge. It seems communication is a lost art in the world, with people only talking to those they know well or hope to get into bed. Now, I feel that the stories that my family and friends are tired of hearing will be read, understood, and used by others; hopefully, to their advantage. My name is Chase, and I am 28 yrs old. Currently I live in NW Washington, and I love it. I have the sea on one side(ok, it's more of a sheltered coastline; the San Juans protect us from the real ocean) and the mountains on the other. Not many places you can get fresh crab to take up into the mountains and cook on an open flame. I didn't start out in this area, though. I was born in a small town in Southern Kentucky, moved in with my grandparents in Middle Tennessee when i was 2, moved to West Tennessee when I was 9. Jackson, TN was the first stop, but the place I call home is another small town called Parsons, about 10 miles west of the Tennessee River. From there I joined the United States Marines, which took me away from my roots and thrust me into places such as Rota - Spain, Marseilles - France, Malta, Odessa - Ukraine, Constanza? - Romania, and Corfu- Greece. I guess I got the travel bug in me during my tour of service, which is why I only lasted a couple of years in TN after my discharge before heading out west to Denver. It only took 1.5 yrs to get fed up with that many people, which is what brought me here to the NW. I was married at 19, divorced at 20, engaged at 24, single again at 25, which is how I remain to this day. I like to consider myself a reasonable person; I tend to get upset easily at what I consider flagrant ignorance to common sense and common courtesy (although I guess you could say that "common courtesy" is now an uncommon trait, as is common sense). I am a huge advocate of self sufficiency, and thanks to, of all people, Douglas Adams, am coming to terms with the hippocracy of my own Agonosticism. My interests include, but are not limited to, technology, the outdoors, sociology, and fabrication in regards to metalworking, woodworking, and whatever other materials present themselves as handy to use. I am an advocate for the legalization of marijuana because I feel it is no more dangerous than alcohol, and in fact, safer in some ways. In summary, I guess you could say I believe what I believe, not because I've been told to, but because that's what my experiences have pointed towards. What more can you expect from life? Why take someone else's word for it when you can check it out for yourself. I'm open for discussion on any subject, as long as your bottom line is not persuasion to think your way. So, for now, May the road rise to meet you, May the wind always be at your back, May the sun shine warm upon your face, and May you always know where your towel is.
