    [Introducing Guest of a Guest's "The Wedding Party"]

    Stacia Zukroff and Wyatt Biel. (Pictured above). Married on November 15, 2008 at the Highland Center in Crawfor Notch, N.H..  These uber ambitious travelers found true love over their passion for adventure. This year, Stacia had somewhat of a panic attack in May: “I’m almost 40, and I’m not married, and I don’t have a child and I don’t have a Ph.D.!” she recalled wailing to Mr. Biel. “And he said ‘Well, we can get married. We can have a child. As for the Ph.D., babe, you’re on your own. But I can support you while you do it.’ ”

    Fun Fact: the couple met when Stacia was assigned to be Wyatt's mentor at the Appalachian Mountain Club's leadership training workshop.
