Aaron is a busy guy! Between teaching, traveling the world, finding new and exciting ways to earn a bit of extra cash, hitchhiking and many other various outdoor activites he finds time to provide awesome and unique tours. Me, my wife and a few friends went on the full moon island tour. Aaron paddled us and about 20 other people each way!!! It was a great time! Now I need to do his scooter tour!
Let me help you create the perfect “creative date” around Austin. Everyone loves a unique date and they are they best way to explore a new city. However it can be hard to pull off if you don’t have the local knowledge of the best places, or don’t have the time, energy, and supplies needed to set it up.
Leave it all to me. I know the best places for fun dates and I’ve got all the gear to make them more exciting.
For starters, I like to mix up my modes of travel. Perhaps start on the tandem bike then switch to the double kayak and end up on a scooter ride to the best lookout in town for a picnic. But I have other ideas too.
This tour consists of two parts. First we’ll consult in person and after hearing your hobbies I’ll make some suggestions. Then I can set up the date for you and make sure it goes as planned.
I’m pretty ninja-like so if you want all the credit, take it. If you would rather me appear every once in awhile for assistance or instructions that’s cool too.
A personal consultation
Everything needed for the date
What to bring?
You’ll need a date of course. Everything else we’ll talk about during the consultation. .
Price will vary depending on what type of date you want. I can work with any budget from student to Mark Zuckerberg.
(see qualifications/Experience to the right)
Don’t worry - I’ve learned my lesson and I’ll try not to get you arrested. But if you do, we’ll try to get you a date with the prosecutor and that ones on me.

I only date Aaron for the adventure—caving, kayaking, cliff jumping, tandem biking, moped riding, rock hopping, hitchhiking, frisbee golfing, camping, night hiking, glow-in-the-dark ultimate frisbee, bonfires, sliding down waterfalls, unicycle football—everyone knows these are essential elements of any successful relationship.
I have known Aaron all his life and am still being amazed at his creativity and ability to see what others do not. He can take you places you’ve never been while doing so safely and thriftily. He truly finds joy in life. You will find joy and adventure with Aaron.
I’ve been friends with Aaron for a couple of years and he is easily the most active, adventure-seeking person I know. Aaron is the poster boy for a GuideHop guide: he’s passionate about the activities he guides, he’s an excellent instructor and experienced guide, and he’s just a good, down-to-earth guy that loves meeting new people and showing them his city. I highly recommend you go on one of Aaron’s (very unique and fun!) activities.
Aaron is a very energetic and extraverted person. he is able to talk or communicate with any nationality from around the world (just look at the pictures). He is always looking for adventure wherever he goes, or plans on going, to include getting there with spending as little a possible while doing it. He is responsible, and knows the limits (whatever they may be). You will be amazed at the things he can find to do when you think there is nothing going on around you. If you are looking for adventure, then you have found your match. Just remember, be careful what you ask for. Aaron will take you to the limit and you will enjoy it for a lifetime.

Qualifications & Experience
I’ve had some pretty epic dates on super low budgets that will be hard to forget.
The best back to back dates would definitely be sneaking into the city zoo on a valentines day date after hours to picnic with the giraffes. The mistake was posting the photos online - which resulted in an arrest 4 months later. It all worked out though because then the prosecutor asked me out! She of course wanted a creative date and without much time or help from the West Texas town I lived in, I ended up building a nice “bee-hive” type structure in the middle of the woods for a dinner date and campfire.
