Ten years in the making. Erin met Don in 2010 through her then-partner, Khalil, who had become one of Don's motorcycle racing buddies. Soon after, a tragic accident stole Khalil away from them and Don's friendship became a source of strength. Years of companionship brought them closer together and while Don was interested, his gallant respect for the friend they'd shared prevented him from asking Erin out. Instead, he introduced her to a buddy who lured her away from Seattle. They both got dogs named Bridger. When they were finally reunited in the Pacific Northwest, the spark they had long denied finally started to kindle. Since then, they’ve remodeled a tiny house on the river, adopted a fluffy child who isn’t named Bridger, skied, biked, climbed, and moved across the country together. Don proposed to Erin at his favorite spot on Flathead Lake and they were happily married in Whitefish on August 29, 2020.
