Happy 2016!

Our two weeks camping off of Rockhouse Road was topped off by a pretty epic New Years Eve celebration.

borrego
Drea suggested that we burn some sort of symbol in effigy at the end of the night, and a wooden borrego was born.

pot-luck
We had another pot luck dinner. This time I made a much easier phyllo dough recipe, vegan spanakopita.

music
There was a DJ setup and karaoke.

fire
We found that a rectangle firepit was more efficient than the traditional circle.

more
There was about 7 hours to kill until midnight. Pictured, Tim, Kelly, Mike & Brian.

more-people
Shannon, Drea, Jase & Jessie.

scenic-ddd
Iain, Kate & Kerensa.

beer-people
The Roaming Pint meets Here for the Beer. Maria & Brian and Tim & Amy.

group
Gus, Skyler, Kurt, Heather, Chris & Todd.

burning-borrego
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…!

    I’m glad we carry all the lights and DJ equipment everywhere we go for that one night a year we can use it 🙂
