Awesome photos this month guys! If I weren't full-timing at the beach, I would drag the rig to the mountains and take a few pics! Good luck!

This is the best I could come up with here in Illinois where the largest hill is the railroad grade.

Wheeler Peak

This is as a photo from our "tin tent trip" last fall to Great Basin National Park, and the 3,000+ year old Bristlecone Pines. The Great Basin is an endless series of mountains and valleys, always one hill beyond.

The interior is gutted, we slept on camping pads on the plywood floor, front window needs new glass, but it was a fun trip, great fall colors.

Diplomatic Dilemma with this months contest ...

There's a bit of a diplomatic dilemma with this months contest .....

Santa dropped by (literally) for a little chat ....

Apparently he's an avid reader (and contributor) to Airforums (he wouldn't reveal his forum name) ....
.... he has wanted to take part in the monthly photo contests for some time ....
.... it seems he has chosen this month's theme for his contribution ....

As you can imagine – this is a bit of a sensitive situation ...
.... heck – the guy figures he is a shoe-in .....
..... claims he has looked beyond every hill there is to look beyond – and all the next hills after that ..... everywhere ..... on the entire planet ....

I tried to delicately point out that the photo had to have at least a piece of an Airstream showing .....
.... he says he has a strong argument for his sleigh .....
.... points out that his sleigh (the Polar "Clipper") has aerodynamic design features that he himself pioneered at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution – features that have allowed it to "stream through the air" ever since – making life much easier on his reindeer.


Decades later .... when sharing some cookies and milk on Christmas Eve in 1903 he showed the secrets of his flying sleigh to an inquisitive young child (guess who). Eventually this young child would go on to design trailers later in life ....
.... and the 1st "Airstream Clipper" would be born .....

The dilemma .....

Santa unquestionably feels his sleigh qualifies as an Airstream – in fact the way he looks at it the first Airstream Clipper was really just an enclosed on-the-ground knock-off of the original Polar Clipper.....

So he has submitted a photo.

I did question his logic .....

But he's fairly persuasive ......
.... he took out his "naughty" list .....
..... made some notes .....


Then I made a strong and decisive ruling ....

..... here's the photo .....

Jay,

I can't get it to open. I guess that means I'm getting coal again this year........

Sorry about that - I had attached it as a .bmp file - should be fixed now - but if it isn't then my technical knowledge is exhausted and I guess Santa loses out .....

Here are a couple of nice hills.

1) approaching Creator Lake, OR

2) Mt.Shasta, CA

and if you cross over enough hills you come to the
Big Water.
3) Pacific Ocean near MacKerricher SP, CA
