Looking toward the New Year.

We hope everyone had a great Christmas!

All but a very few have left here now. We had a few days of good-byes and saw everyone on their way.

It is cold this morning but due to warm up in the next few days.

Yesterday we sat with a well traveled friend and an Atlas and mapped out a potential 3 year travel plan.

It was a lot of fun looking at all the options we had.

Our friend, having taken albums full of pictures of his travels, was able to show us pictures of virtually anywhere we mapped out.

So we ended up with a BIG circle that would make up a trip of a lifetime.

It is amazing how your horizons expand doing an exercise such as this.

While the total time equals 3 years - it really comes down to a whole bunch of "living one day at a time" days linked together.

The year before us is certainly exciting in itself. We have begun a slow process of preparations for leaving in a couple of weeks.

I am sure most of you experience that mindset change thay takes place once you have a date of departure. Seems it can't come soon enough.

I read an article this morning on CBS News that stated that the Number 1 city in the US for economic growth is San Antonio, Texas. We had heard this but to see it in writing and the reasons why make it more real.

We anticipate great things to happen for us in San Antonio. It is going to be a great year!

That's all for now.
