My 2018 calendar: Another year driving across the country, trying to figure out this crazy place

Every year I make a calendar for my family and friends — been doing it 20 years. It’s my way of saying, “Here’s what I’ve been up to for the past 12 months when I probably should have been spending more time with you.” The 12 months, and the cover, are pasted below.  I’m incredibly lucky that my job takes me to all corners of this great country, and I get enough time to enjoy all these wonderful sights.  I promise, they are all far more grand and gorgeous than I make them appear in these pictures, but I hope you get a hint of the beauty here.

I always have a few leftovers; if you’d like one, message me, and I’ll send your way for a reasonable cost.

The wider group of finalists are posted on my Facebook page, if you want to see all of them. Thank you readers for putting up with me all year. Lots of work to do in 2018. I’ll see you on the other side of New Year’s!
