New Year's Eve Campout Lake Livingston State Park 2011

Last year, I slept in the loft of a shelter.  This year, I opted to pitch my tent next to the water.  Mine is the tiny green one.  This may become a yearly tradition.  It's nice to not have to drive the roads with the drunks.  My share of the campsite fees was $12.  I also contributed champagne, a bundle of firewood, and guacamole but still only spent around $50 total.

I'm excited to finally be allowed a campfire again.  The drought is not over, but at least we have gotten some rain and we have a break from the severe fire threat.  I was beginning to think I would be telling my future grandchildren stories about when it used to rain in Texas...or when the entire state went up in flames. 

Hope everyone had a safe and happy New Year.
