I'm thinking, as this year draws swiftly to a close, a capsule of this year's adventures. 

We've had an awesome year, with and without our little Elite.

We took the hull plaque to Chile/Patagonia  and Antarctica, since we couldn't take the trailer.  

I hope you have had awesome adventures as well. 

2022 in ten pix, for us . A pic of our last camp, this week, in wnc, rounds out the year, as we began and ended the year in the beauty of North Carolina.

You're a much better photographer  than I am. Looks like you had an amazing season,and took full advantage of the summer.

We chose the second awning too.  We picked up on November 7, so basically have only spent ten days in ours just around Hohenwald and the six days coming back to Oregon.  Do you find that second awning useful?  I think it will be good for being able to have cross ventilation even on rainy days.

We love the second awning. A lot of our trips this season were summer dry camping on the shore with little to no shade. I tried to park the trailer in a north-south orientation with the bathroom to the south. As the day progressed we'd shift awnings from the east side to the west side. This kept the main cabin as cool as possible and maximized our shaded outdoor seating (we moved the chairs from one side of the trailer to the other).

We didn't use the awnings very much in the rain. The window vent I made, along with the added gutter, allowed us to keep the dinette window open, even in heavy rain. That's been enough so far.

Do you have pictures of both of those?

I got the idea for both from other threads here. Parts came from Amazon:

Plus some weatherstripping from the hardware store.

Even though we don't have our Oliver yet, I'll play.

First photo of the year in my photo library. Our grandkids

Having a winery near the campground was nice!

Deb is an Ambassador, so she got an opportunity to buy bottles from "her" barrel, as well as dip them in wax. It was a fun trip

A couple days later, we were in Tennessee!

Mid-October we lost my mother at age 91. What a full and wonderful life. And yes, that's me.

A few days later, we gained a son-in-law.

And, just a couple days ago, a fitting bookmark to the first photo.

I promise, next year's compilation will have some Oliver photos!

Love the tug/barge on the river at sunset photo. Reminds me of camping on the Mississippi. 

Thanks for sharing the memories.  Glad you had a great first season.

I was hesitant, as everyone has lots of grandkid photos. Somewhere we have slides from when our two daughters were little. And under a bed I have a tub with all the polaroids and 8mm movies from when I was little, plus some color slides from when Dad was a toddler in the early '30s.

The two grandkids are our oldest daughter's, and we're on a shared Apple Photos gallery with them. Apple limits shared galleries to 5000 images, and they're on their third one in just four years! 🤪 I hope there is some way to see them 90 years from now like I can still see my Dad's. (or my photos and tintypes of my great-great grandparents from the 1800s for that matter) As it is now, we can't even watch Deb's an my wedding video from 1981, because it was on Betamax...

Ha! No, I don't need to add to the pile of unused stuff I already have. 😉  There's a place on the other side of Cleveland that scans videos, slides, movies, and photos, and pust them on DVD or thumb drives. At some point, I want to do that, but it's not inexpensive. Drug stores, Wal-Mart, Costco, etc. do the same for less, but with horrible results from what what I've read.
