As of today, Kia and I have been married for three years. In those three years we have ridden buses from Panama to Mexico, played in bands, slept in tents, slept in our van, slept in a tipi, slept under the stars. We’ve hiked to the Alexander Supertramp bus in Alaska, gone to school, snowboarded, bummed through the deserts and mountains of the West, cooked vegan food, picked up hitchhikers, gotten tattoos and piercings, and hung out with sloths, monkeys, birds of prey, and wolves. We’ve made a million good friends, and some enemies too. We’ve also been robbed, ripped off, and down and out, and through it all I couldn’t imagine being luckier, happier, or having a more wonderful, supportive partner. She is the best.
