We’re Back, We’re Safe, AND We’re ENGAGED!!!!

We’re back from an amazing 16 day solo trip down the Colorado River! What an experience. I guess the most exciting news to tell is, We’re Engaged!!! I always knew that I wanted to propose to Stevie on the Grand Canyon, and we had planned to go back so I knew I’d have the opportunity. When this trip came up, even though it was short notice, I took it! I popped the question right after the biggest rapid on the river. It was an insanely happy moment for both of us!

We have some fun photos of the trip, all complete with captions. Click here to view the photo album, then click on the first photo…


Everyone keeps asking, “When’s the wedding”. Stevie and I plan to get married on a warm tropical beach somewhere south of the border. It will be just the two of us (and Kiki). We don’t know where it will be yet, but we both agree that we’ll know when we get there. Our path will take us to the place. We also plan to have a big party in Socal some time later to celebrate the union with all of our friends and family.

Right now we’re on our way back to Oregon to collect the Sprinter and Kiki. From there we continue North on our Pan American Highway trip.

    As I told you all before. I am so psyched for you both. Two of my favorite people will be spending the rest of their lives together. I will say this: I'm going to find that beach and be there to bear witness. Believe me I will find it.
