    My (un)favorite quote from him is: (during a trip down the Colorado in
    the Grand Canyon)
      The first day was spectacular...The second day started to get a little
      tedious, but the third day I wanted bigger motors to move that raft out.

      I'll guarantee you that. On the fourth day we were praying for
      helicopters, and they came.
