Our two weeks camping off of Rockhouse Road was topped off by a pretty epic New Years Eve celebration.
Drea suggested that we burn some sort of symbol in effigy at the end of the night, and a wooden borrego was born.
We had another pot luck dinner. This time I made a much easier phyllo dough recipe, vegan spanakopita.
There was a DJ setup and karaoke.
We found that a rectangle firepit was more efficient than the traditional circle.
There was about 7 hours to kill until midnight. Pictured, Tim, Kelly, Mike & Brian.

Iain, Kate & Kerensa.
The Roaming Pint meets Here for the Beer. Maria & Brian and Tim & Amy.
Gus, Skyler, Kurt, Heather, Chris & Todd.
As the clock struck midnight, the borrego was lowered into the fire and with wishes for a happy new year.

Hmmm, seems like quite a dense crowd of people whose entire lifestyle is to avoid dense crowds of people…!
Ha! It’s different when you know all your neighbors. 🙂
Happy New Year, Leigh and Brian! The desert is special.
Happy New Year Brian and Leigh!
Great pictures. Looks like an awesome crowd and a very happy celebration.
Hope our paths will cross again in the coming year.
Love and a big hug
Stefan and Koos
Thanks you guys, you too! Yes, I hope to see you both – email me your plans for the U.S. if you’ve got any!
I’m glad we carry all the lights and DJ equipment everywhere we go for that one night a year we can use it 🙂
You guys are awesome! Thanks for that!! 🙂
