Happy New Year!!

Here is to a great 2013 for one an all.  I hope your celebration was fun yet something that you remember!  And, of course, that you are feeling reasonably well this morning! 

My wife and I have always had a very quiet and private New Year celebration.  As usual we spent the evening talking.  Talking about how fortunate we are; trips we have made, trips we want to make, our hopes for the kids, our hopes for the world - yes, alcohol was involved but we did both see the New Year in.  In my family we always left Christmas decorations up until the new year; in my wife's family they took everything down on the 26th.  My wife very kindly agreed to do it my way so this was the last day for the decorations. 
Now we are ready for the new year.  I wish I could say the same for the total idiots we have elected and sent to Washington.  Jeez, what a bunch of (*&%%$##s!  Oh, don't get me started! 

We are hoping to travel up into Wyoming and Montana next summer and in talking about that discovered that we would both like to be able to take the truck and 'rough camp' a bit; leaving our trailer in a park and maybe going up that dirt road and staying for a day or two.  It will take a bit of modification to the bed of the truck but should be do-able.  We have a shell on the bed so all we are talking about is a sort of platform bed that will enable us to sleep on top of some of the stuff we need to carry.  I'll try to take photos of whatever happens.  If nothing else, it should be interesting.

Since it is a new year, I celebrated by getting up just before sunrise.  We had a nice one!
Though as the saying has it "Red sky at morning, sailor take warning."  Here's hoping it doesn't bode ill for 2013.  Have a good one everyone!

Sounds like fun Don. My dad loved Christmas and it was always at least a week into January before anything came down. Happy New Year!

Our idea of 'roughing it' is a Ramada Inn with no room service. Good luck on your version, send pics.
