In a few hours I begin a trek that I have been putting off for years.
Christmas with family.
As a person that spent quite a lot of time in the military, along with getting degrees in engineering/science I am the black sheep of the family.
I didn't go into business.
I just became, as my mother so aptly puts it, a mechanic.
And, believe it or not. . . . my views are seen as "liberal" to my family.
So I am a liberal mechanic.
Now I am getting on in years, my family is getting on in years. Probably be dying soon, at least some of us. So it was brought up to spend Christmas
In the mountains.
(Donner party, anyone?)
A week spent in cabins, doing outside things like skiing, dog sledding, aggravating arthritis, frostbite, and seeing who can catch pneumonia first!
Since there is no television, no movie theatres, no bars, no entertainment but possibly wifi. . . . I will begin to journal my trek into the
My only hope is that I will be eaten by a bear before the week is out.
