Who am I? I’m Batman.
Er, no, wait…
Oh, man, that’s such a geek joke. Not even a very good one.
Welcome in. The GeekHiker is an average single guy in his early 30′s living in Southern California. He’s something of a conundrum: not quite a geek and not quite a cool outdoorsy-guy; he floats somewhere in between. And he really shouldn’t talk about himself in third person.
I work in IT for a mid-sized company, and that’s all I’ll say about that.
I have some full-on geeky qualities: I have two computers and a server at home, I watch good sci fi, I love maps. I read books on history and watch shows like “Mythbusters”, “Battlestar Galactica”, “The Simpsons” and “Scrubs”.
On the flip side, I’d rather be out hiking than staring at my computer screen. I day hike all over, go car camping, wish I could get into backpacking. I like watching raptors soar, do photography, and will always pull the truck over to the side of the road to watch a sunset. Yep, I’m a geek who drives a truck.
Originally, I started this blog to chronicle my forays into dating, and my quest (if you will) to find “the one” that I’m told is out there, the constant enticement and frustration a guy feels with the opposite sex. But adding entries on my thoughts, days, and hikes, making this a true journal has been interesting as well, so now it covers all. Dating, hikes, cool links, computer talk, you never quite know what you’ll find here, because I never quite know either.
So, welcome in. Enjoy, comment if ya like, please done flame me, and if you don’t like what you see, please move along, there’s plenty more on the internet for ya…
And if you happen to think you know of me out in the real world, well, do me a favor and just keep it our little secret, m’kay?
SIDE NOTE: Any hikes you may do based on what you read here are entirely at your own risk. Go get a good map, some experience, some friends and a decent hiking guide. This is just some guy’s hike’s on the internet for goodness sake!
