Dear 100 Hour Board,
While looking at a past posts, you mentioned that if someone asks you'd share your proposal stories. So how about sharing?

A: Dear living vicariously!,

Okay, I'll bite. When my wife and I were dating we were enthralled by a quote from Brigham Young that something to the effect of "The day will come when Temples will be so common that you will be able to look to your left and see a Temple, and then look to your right and see another Temple." Since we were both from places where Temples were scarce, we were really impressed by this quote.

Then we realized if you hike the "Y", you can see both the Provo and the Mount Timpanogos Temples. So a few days later we hiked the Y, and the rest is history.
