New Years in the Desert

I honestly thought I did this post already. We’ve been busy working and socializing and working and socializing, so the blog ball dropped shortly after the one in Times Square. Oops!

Over-run with off road vehicles at Cougar Buttes Dispersed, we decided to move to Silurian Dry Lake Bed with Dave and Kelly.

We met up with our good friends Heather and Jeff who had previously scouted this spot and confirmed it would be a good place to avoid the holiday crowds.

We were all relieved to see Tim and Kerri arrived after a close call with a fire in their engine.

New Years Eve was an early night for this group who happily agreed to celebrate with everyone on the east coast.

    Hi Leigh and Bryan,
    Haven’t seen a posting from you two for months now—hope whatever the glitch is that it’s small and soon to be solved.
    Meanwhile, we’re enjoying the diverse postings of others on the camping circuit—thanks to your site.
    Cheers and good thoughts your way!

    Hi David & Mary! Sorry for the delayed response. We’ve been so busy working, we barely have time to play let alone blog. I hope you’re well and appreciate the good thoughts!

    Yay! Busy-ness is good! We’re glad to hear that you’re fully engaged in your pursuits.
    As for us, we’re currently involved in bricks and mortar literally, with fencing and gates, and landscaping thrown in for good measure!
    Albuquerque airstreaming and the October balloons will be our reward for all the home-work.
