Soon to be southbound

We've been home for the holidays in Salt Lake City since December 10.  Tomorrow -- New Year's Day -- we're taking off south again in our tow car.  We plan to spend the first night just south of Las Vegas and will then head for the  Yuma, Arizona, Proving Ground, where we left our rig in storage.  We'll pick up the rig, and -- if a spot is available -- stay a few days at the Yuma Proving Ground Fam Camp.  If the Fam Camp is full -- and most likely it will be -- we'll find a place to dry camp near by or even stay a night or two at a new hotel that was supposed to open up on the base.  After that, who knows?   Maybe Organ Pipe National Monument on the AZ/Mexico border, or maybe straight to Tucson.  We'll talk about it on the way to Yuma.

In the meantime, we had a nice Christmas with kids and grand kids and spent time with friends.  Hope everyone out there had a very Merry Christmas.
Thanks to the Yuma Proving Gound Facebook page for this slightly photoshopped photo.
Ever since my kids were very young, I've bought matching (or coordinating) pajamas we wear on Christmas Eve. Back row left to right in this year's PJs are:  Jim, Bev, grandson Marshall, daughter Ashley, son Paul.  In front:  Son-in-law Shad and granddaughter Amelia.  Other PJ recipients not in this photos is our Oregon contingent of daughter Season, SIL Lee and grandsons Owen and Conner; and Shad's sister Serene and wife Jessica, who were married December 20, the day same-sex marriage became legal in Utah.
