|Barry and Raman met in Irving, Texas in March of 2002 while having lunch with fellow workmates. After a conversation about climbing ensued, they exchanged email addresses and soon had their first date at a climbing gym. It wasn't long before the climbing went outdoors to the local climbing area near Mineral Wells, Texas with some other friends. That began a series of adventures over the next 5 years as they travelled the southwest and climbed mountains in Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, and California. They fell in love along the way and Barry proposed to Raman on the shores of Beaver Lake near Eureka Springs, Arkansas over Thanksgiving 2007. The announcement of their planned wedding can be viewed by clicking on the figure on your left.
