Our good friends, Matt and Kate, finally got married this past weekend. These two were the initial inspiration for our extended time off to travel. After traveling for 9 months, they settled in a little town in Oregon called Bend. Most people haven't heard of Bend, but after visiting them three times over this past winter, I think we're hooked. We were told getting a house on the Deschutes River was a must, so we squeezed three couples into a little place right on the river. It was worth it. So we floated the river as a massive group, BBQ'd and brought back A/C sliders, jumped into Crater Lake, watched two amazing people get married and danced the night away.
