One day Vince was finally forced to acknowledge her when, by pure coincidence, they were the only 2 with the day off. As it turns out, they actually had a lot in common and they spent the day talking about their families and their lives back home. After that conversation they spent nearly every day together. By the end of the season they were officially dating & decided to meet each other's families. Vince is originally from a tiny town in Kentucky & Hailey is from Utah, so they made arrangements to spend a couple weeks in each other's home towns.
After spending the winter apart, they decided to do another season together in Alaska working for the same company. Vince met Hailey in Utah & they drove to British Colombia (36 long hours) and took a ferry into Ketchikan.
By the time they were ending their second season, they were eager to get home & start their lives together, so, just like they used to do in the 1st grade, they made a paper chain to count down the days. On each link they wrote inside jokes or funny memories for the other one to read. On their last day Hailey opened the paper link and read "will you marry me?" she turned around & Vince was on one knee. And that's when she said yes and jumped on him.
Hailey says, “I don't know how the universe knew to put us both in Alaska at the same time, but I am forever grateful that it did.”
