It was always a good time, but one of the drawbacks was that we had to reserve the yurt plenty in advance, and the weather and roads getting to and from yurt country often presented mild peril. As I recall, one of the roads along the journey is called "OH MY GOD! Road".
So we stopped going.
BUT, this year, we've got the next best thing! We've decided to field test our Zombie Apocalypse tent. (Thanks to setup team of Magnum and Meego)
This is to be our accomodations for Christmas Eve. I've decreed no prezzents for anyone who doesn't make it the full night.
... which means I'll probably have a lump of coal, if anything, to show this year.
