We’re going to run over to Houston for a few days to be with our son and family for Christmas. We might take the trailer and camp at Stephen F Austin State Park. We were there earlier this month, nice and peaceful. Depends on the weather.

 

Agree that the Riverwalk here is magical this time of year with all the lights! Mike

<p style="text-align: left;">We're staying home. Had early Christmas  visits from part of our family, and that was wonderful.  Went to the Home Free acapella concert in Tampa last week... lighted boat parade in Clearwater last weekend... I love the Christmas season.</p>

Going to Muncie, IN to be with one daughter. Probably will not take the trailer. That way we can go in the GMC Canyon diesel instead of the Silverado Beast. The Canyon gets 35 mpg vs the Silverado's 22 mpg.

I did a 1/2 Ironman triathlon in Muncie a number of summers ago.  The pavement was so hot that my shoes stuck to the tar in the pavement with each step on the run.  What was I thinking?

 

After spending the first 25 years of our marriage traveling during the holidays, it sure is nice to go to church, put an extra log on the fire, relax, go for a short hike on Christmas day to feed the animals in the forest and generally do nothing.

You get 35 mpg with a pickup?  My BMW X5d can manage that (if I don't drive fast!) , but then it is newer so has a bunch of emissions "stuff", I'm sure. 

I once got 63 mpg in our F-350 diesel SD, but that was driving downhill, off Santiam Pass (Oregon).  Looked good on the dash display, though :)

I looked back to see how that trip's mileage turned out. We did a lot of driving around in town once there and it brought down our average. Still not too bad.
