Journey to the Holy Land

After much deliberation we've decided to head up to Utah for the weekend. I have a mission reunion on Friday night in Bountiful we really want to got to. To save on gas money we're driving Miranda's 72' VW Bug.

 It's name is "Sue the VW."

Top speed: 65 mph, downhill, with a tail wind. To say the least, the driving should be a loooong experience worth forgetting. We changed it's oil and loaded the hood up with all the tools and tow ropes I own for when we break down. We even fixed the CD player so we can listen to tunes on the way.

The kicker of the whole thing is that we can't leave until tonight around 8:30. I baptized a Chinese family (the Ni's) over a year ago and now they are going through the Temple tonight. We really want to be there and support them but also want to be at the reunion, so, we're doing both!

In Utah, we'll also be able to see a best friend of mine, Ben, that is coming down from Idaho with his wife Brigitte. She is an awesome hair stylist that is going to cut our hair Saturday night.

We aren't 100% sure when we're going home, maybe Sunday, maybe Monday...we don't know yet. The main goal for this trip is to eat at the most delicious fast food joint, Arctic Circle, and have me a pastrami burger with tons of FRY SAUCE and and a to-die-for shake. Yum Yum

Tune in next week for the trip stats.

Hooray! We have a blog now!

Welcome! This is our amazing, awesome, totally cool BLOG! We got tired of telling our excellent adventures over and over so we decided to start this blog so you all can follow along with us on our journeys. 

Hello, I'm Tyler 

This is my woman, Miranda

And this is our pet fish, named Tuna, and snake named Toby

We just got married on 3/11/11. We're pretty cool people. If you don't believe us, this is us on a quad riding down the beaches of Mexico on our honeymoon.

Well now that we're married, moved out and on our own, we've decided to pack up and head off to China, because, well, why the heck not?? We leave May 11 at 7:35am and are counting down the days. We have no job for either of us when we get there, no place to live, and best of all no money to live off of. Yeah, we're pretty stinking excited!! 

Neither of us really want to stay here in the valley and just fart around until we have an accident child or something. Instead we want to roam the world and THEN have an accident child or something. 

The plan right now is to move to Guang Zhou (It's a huge city just two hours from Hong Kong), find jobs for the summer, start school in September, and have a chill life in China for a few years (at least 4 so I can graduate). Some people we talk to about all this think we're crazy. Yup, we're not normal, sane, or logical that's for sure, but w.

Anywho, we hope you enjoy our posts and that this blog becomes a great way for you to hear more about our excellent adventures without us actually having to talk. Peace!
