Thanks to everyone for reading this year. We've had a blast over here at the VHD. Hope everyone enjoys the festive season and everyone can get some time on a trail or in the outdoors somewhere. Thanks again for reading, there's much more to come in the New Year.

This magnificent picture is from the Australian National Archives it was taken by the great Frank Hurley during one of the British, Australian, New Zealand Antarctic Research Expeditions led by non other than Douglas Mawson. It looks to be onboard the RSS Discovery. I love the Yalumba wine (or more likely port) on the tables.

Thanks to everyone for reading this year. It's been great to share some stories and talk to so many amazing people. There's lots more to come in the new years. I'm overseas for the holidays, then back to my first Maine winter, my first cold winter in 7 years!

Safe travels wherever you are headed. Hope everyone can get some time on a trail, wherever it may be. Thanks again for reading.
