Happy Hogmanay!

shoot-270My family is very American, but I still hold the old Scottish attachment to the New Year celebration of Hogmanay. I keep some of the old traditions. I have gone First Footing a time or two. I’ve sained (blessed) the house on Hogmanay after a particularly bad year. I may do it again for this year. I still open the front door at midnight, then run and open the back, to welcome in the new year and let the old one out.

This coming year will be filled with adventure large and small, good friends, and good drink. There will be pedals to make go around, miles of steel rails to ride, and mountains to hike. There will be new sights to see through viewfinders, and film to capture it on. I will be joined by the most beautiful, wonderful woman in the world every step of the way. Everything I ever needed. I can not wait to get started.

shoot-271Happy Hogmanay to you! May this year bring you the sky above, the road below, endless opportunity for adventure, and more happiness than you thought possible.
