New years eve. Just me and the wifey tonight. Waiting for midnight. Four hours to go. Wait a minute, it's 30 degrees outside and we've been sub-zero for weeks! I'm watching some fireworks from the hammock in the back yard. They were legal just for tonight and everybody had 'em. They echoed off the face of the mountain across the river. Didn't even have to bend my neck to see them. I knew I needed a hammock without a built in bug net.

Happy New Year from Alaska!
