We spent New Year's Eve as we have spent many New Year's Eves recently, recording an episode for our monthly podcast on RV Navigator
. After having done more than 100 episodes, always ready for download on iTunes on the first day of the month, we treat this as a serious obligation. Thousands of people download these podcasts. While that doesn't necessarily mean that they listen to them, it motivates us keep going. Sipping champagne while we chatted about our latest adventures, both RV and international, was a pleasant way to end 2013. We stayed up long enough to celebrate the new year in Chicago, but we haven't internalized the Mountain Time Zone yet.
Today we took it easy. I explored the campground on my bike intrigued by some of the holiday decorations people had put up. When you live in an RV or a park model, space is at a premium and I wonder where people store these decorations once the season is over. I especially like the ones that incorporated the local vegetation in the tableaus.
As is typical in a desert climate, the mornings here are quite cool, but the bright sunshine quickly heats things back up and its nice enough to do almost anything outside except swim by the afternoon. According to the forecast this is how it will be for the foreseeable future.
And at home they had eight inches of snow today!
