Moab Pictures



We got all sorts of camping stuff for our wedding, so we decided to go to Moab and try them out. We have some friends down there we wanted to see and then go to the national parks. We had three days off from work and decided to go. We arrived in Moab about 7 pm at night. We thought we were in luck to set up our tent in the light. We took a turn into the BLM land to find an open spot that would let us have a camp fire. It is not camping without a fire, hot dogs and marshmallows. After an hour of driving and still no camp spot, we head into Moab to find something else. We called severals places and finally found one that would let us have a fire. We camped at OK RV Park. It was a great little place. We set up our tent and decided to make the classic camp dinner...yes that's right, hot dogs & marshmallows.

After a night's sleep under the stars, we got up and had a great breakfast. We decided to go into Arches National Park to do some hiking and sight seeing. We st…

Check out my Slide Show!



After our luncheon, we rushed out of town and headed straight to the SLC airport and flew to Long Beach Airport. If you've never been here before, it's the white trashiest airport I've ever been to. Instead of big terminals, there are trailers everywhere that serve as the waiting rooms. So when you land, you get to feel like the pope or the president and walk down the stairs of the plane. But, it was cheaper than LAX, so, being a newly married poor married couple, we took the cheap way out. Our first night we spent in a hotel near Disneyland. it was close to the airport and we didn't get in until about 10 pm. I won't go into more detail about that.... ;-)
The next day we drove into Hollywood and checked out the Walk of Fame.... not that cool really. They used to give those to big named stars, now everyone gets one.... Ryan Seacrest has one.... what's up with that. While there we went to the Hollywood Wax Museum and the Guiness Book of Records Museum. N…

Welcome Friends!

Aloha and Howdy,
We are starting this blog to keep our friends and loved ones up to date about our new family! We are so happy that we met and are so in love! Here's the cute story! Rachael and I met in the summer of '07 while working in the great state of Alaska. I was a tour guide for Royal Celebrity Tours and Rachael was working at the Grande Denali Lodge. I brought my guests through Denali weekly and was lucky enough to have tours that mostly stayed at the Grande. Rachael was the cute front desk girl whose name tag said she was from Honolulu, Hawaii, but didn't look polynesian. We started chatting and I found out she was actually from Soda Springs, Idaho, but had worked and lived in Hawaii for the past 3 years. We really didn't think to much about dating each other at first. At the end of August I had a guest who had a lost bag and I found out at about 11:15 pm. Rachael was still working at the desk that evening and offered to come help look for it. We wer…
