2008 Roundup

It's been a busy ending of 2008 for me. My parents and Lori's parents came for Thanksgiving and met for the first time. It was crowded house but everyone had a good time. I then go and get engaged. And we finished up 2008 with a trip to Arizona for 2 weeks to spend Christmas at her parents place. Unfortunately, we're now back to reality; a cold, wet reality.

We stayed at the Shady Dell Trailer Park for a night in Bisbee, AZ. We'll be getting married there.

By shear coincidence, one of my favorite comedians of all time, Doug Stanhope, stayed in the same trailer the time before us.

I went desert exploring with Lori's uncles and dad, on the Sawtooth Mountain near Casa Grande. It's also heavily trafficked illegal alien route.

There is tons of trash everywhere from them running them through at night. All these are backpacks.

Petroglyphs, or what's left of them.

Arrowhead and pottery I found near a river bed.
