    My name is Joshua, username RayCaptain (a name I made up for a Star Wars larp with my closest childhood friend when I lived in Tennessee). I'm 24 and currently live and work in California where I'm stationed, going on 3 years with the United States Air Force. I'm married to a lovely lass who is originally from Miami. I myself spent most of my time in South Carolina and Tennessee but have lived all over the Southeastern United States.

    I like to read, mostly nonfiction but I'm a big fan of Tolkien and some up-and-coming Western novelists, and write (I very much intend to publish books in retirement). I kind of cross some demographic lines; I enjoy the outdoors, hunting, fishing, etc. but I also enjoy tabletop rpgs and text based roleplaying and occasionally video games. I hope we can all get along sometime.

    My dream is to retire from the military and move to the northern Rockies where I would like a small farm and garden and lots of land along rivers and mountains. I want to spend my twilight smoking my pipes, drinking bourbon, and looking after my flock in a quiet part of the world.

    She keeps me in line which is what I need. Tells me when I'm not being nice, etc. I'm still kind of a grouch but now it's like an old man and not an angsty teen.

    I've always been a sucker for colorful hair haha. Thank you
