First off, I want to thank all the authors of articles for our website.  I have enjoyed all the trips and adventures and have more to share soon.  Since there are many new members, I thought I would do a post with the top 5 articles from 2022.  I have included the links in case you either missed the post when it first came out or are new to the website.  Since I post more than anyone, I have split the lists in two. The first list is only authors that contributed and the second are my articles. These are in order of viewership only and not my personal opinion, but I would like to hear from you.  What was your favorite posts of 2022?

Please leave a comment at the end of this post.
