We have had another eventful year, and thankful for strong family ties, exploration, good health and fun times. I am dividing my time between Forestville and Benton homes and travels to Tulsa and other places to meet up with my love Judy Wilder. We have been to Portland, Oregon, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, Carson river and just returned from 3 weeks in Hawaii on the big island reveling in tropical explorations. We met up with the eastern family in Frog City including Kailen, Zoe and Kyva and Jim (Zoe’s dad), said farewell to the Camden house, which has now been sold, A reunion with Wally Grover and his family in Lake Sunapee complete with display of restored fire engines segued into a visit to Cindy in Franconia and a return to Greenleaf hut (see my blog for the story).
My big event at Burning Man was lecturing to 350 people on the local geology. The event ended badly with a fire that destroyed my pickup and camper on a desert highway in Nevada. I spent a fun amount of time with insurance claims and buying new stuff, including a new Toyota Tacoma and pop top camper like I had before in time to spend 12 days in Saline Valley over Thanksgiving. .
I also completed the text and illustrations for the new edition of my Tuolumne River guidebook which will be published in April by Riverbooks.
Heather, Brian and clan are flourishing at the Douglas lane house, Brian coaching soccer and doing accounting, and Heather just landed a new job doing legal assisting. Shasta and Jevria are busy happy kids, doing well in school and playing soccer. Kailen is working hard on Google Earth and Zoe is in graduate school working toward a degree in speech pathology. Kyva is walking, talking and doing all the things an almost 2 year old does. All kids love books and learning new things.
We send our greetings to you and wish you a great new year.
Terry, Heather, Kailen, Brian, Shasta, Zoe, Jevria and Kyva.
