Introduction

Hig Higman and Erin McKittrick have nearly completed a year-long self-powered expedition along the western coast of North America from Seattle, Washington to Unimak Island in the Alaskan Aleutian Chain. Along the way, they have talked with us about every aspect of their journey, from environmental issues and gear to travel travails and animal encounters - but they haven’t talked much about themselves. As they each answer ten questions for themselves and their spouse, they reveal that they are master strategists and intensely competitive (in an understated way). And, they reveal much more. Want to know Hig’s outhouse inspired childhood nickname? How about the – not surprising – place where the couple plans to eventually settle? What does Hig think is Erin’s most annoying trait? And, most valuable, we get some pointers on relationships by observing one that works.
