Happy New Year to all!

Location, at Home, CA

Today brings the close of another year. Looking back over the year there are several highlights to mention.

The visit this summer of our son Tim and family for two weeks is surely a highlight. We always like having them here.

Our trip to Glacier National Park in July and August was outstanding. We really enjoyed that trip.

I was looking back at how many days we spent camping during the year. We were in the RV for 176 days which is almost ½ of the year. That is close to our annual average.

I was looking forward to more travel starting Jan 8th next year but we have cut our trip short. Let’s say that we got a “better offer”.  Our friends Cindy and Gary from the Bay Area asked if we would like to share their Timeshare on Kauai for a week starting the end of February. Of course we said “YES”. Who wouldn’t?

So, we will cut our winter trip short and come home several days before we leave for Hawaii. We will drive to Walnut Creek and fly out of Oakland with Cindy and Gary. I am really looking forward to that.

I will leave home on the 8th of January for Las Vegas where I and a few friends will once again attend this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES). After a week in Las Vegas we will travel to Quartzsite, AZ for a few weeks of all the activities there. Clyda will fly to Phoenix later in January and join me in Quartzsite. We do plan to visit relatives in Casa Grande and then go on to Benson, AZ to use our tickets from last year at Karchner Caverns before the tickets expire. We were unable to use the tickets last year as I ended up in the hospital while in Benson.

Happy New Year to all!
