New Year's Resolutions

Most of us would like to spend more time up in the mountains, and some of us may even have that on our list of New Year's Resolutions. I don't really make those any more. I figure that if it's really important to me, I should start it when I realize that, not on some arbitrary date around the end of the year.

But on the other hand, New Year's Day is a great time to take a look at what kinds of adventures you'd like to have in 2023, and start making plans.

> Now is a good time to check on the logistics of getting permits for those hikes and areas that require them.

> And while you're at it, it's a good time to get fishing licenses, campfire permits, and all the other things that you're going to want for the year.

> Perhaps most importantly. block out those dates, so that your calendar doesn't get filled up with other things.

So what DO you want to do this year? We'd love to hear from you. We're doing a lot of travel until the middle of May, but I've got just about the whole months of June, July, and August blocked off for hiking, backpacking, and trail crew work in the Sierra. And I hope to see you out there!
