When my buddy Wade gave me a call this fall asking if I would be interested in floating down the Grand Canyon with a bunch of his law school buddies, I said "Hell yeah!" The trip would last for three weeks, cover 280 miles of pristine river, and start just after Christmas. Thus, the trip was the catalyst that lead to my departure from BD in mid January.
I spent much of November and December getting gear together and making preparations. When I finally met the whole crew on the boat ramp a few days before New Year, I knew I would be in great company.
