Over the past 20 years or so, we started a tradition where we gathered with friends either at Priest Lake, somewhere camping, or at Western Pleasures Guest Ranch. When we retired, everyone became so busy that it was harder and harder to find a date to get together. This year's answer was to overnight in Moscow, Idaho at Bridget and Dennis's house.
Raina and Dean arrived first, followed by the Bennett's in our Miata. Once we were all there, we called it "Glamping."
Everyone drove in and met at their house at about 2:00 PM. Once there we drank, talked, ate, and laughed until about 10:00 PM when we went to bed. Breakfast in the morning with more talking and then we hugged everyone and were back on the road home by 11:00 AM. A very quick gathering.
