I have always been a bit of an adrenaline junkie with "no fear" outlook on life. In fact, just a few short years ago, I was ready to sell everything I own and move down to West Virginia to become a whitewater rafting guide. I took the first step, which was to take the week-long "bootcamp" training course. Of course, one week is nowhere near enough time to training as a guide, but it was enough for me to know I loved it and wanted to continue guide traning. But, there was a "hitch" -- literally.
After I signed up for guide training, I met my now wife. We were married on the one year anniversary of our first date, and had two kids in the first two and half years. My life is definitely still an adventure, just in a different way.
