I sort of am (half of it.) We are leaving about 11 AM to drive up to an agility trial that starts Friday, so will be in the trailer Thanksgiving afternoon and evening. Not cooking a turkey, though I made stuffing muffins and have ham. Also a chicken pie to do in the microwave.

Bobbie, the last time I tried doing Thanksgiving in the trailer was in 1990. We got thrown out of Yosemite National Park.

We already did. But that was CANADIAN Thanksgiving which is in October.
The weather was fine and we had turkey on the BBQ.

The last couple of years I have joined Liz and Eric at Lake Isabella for their traditional fish and feast. It really is a lot of fun to eat turkey on the river while in your hat and mukluks.

If ya'll are reading this, say HI to the gang for me!

You people up in Canada have it figured out better than us southerners in the USA. You can still camp at Thanksgiving time, and we can't do so here in Minnesota. It is too cold for camping and the harvest time was way back when you celebrated your Thanksgiving. I am sure those pilgrims and indians way back when were not sitting around celebrating in the snow like us Minnesotans (yep, snowing here) Burrrrrrrrr
Happy thanksgiving everyone celebrating tomorrow. Turkey and frozen veggies here (fresh ones long gone!)

We will bring our portable guest suite out to "The Tortoise Ranch". Our friends in the desert host Thanksgiving. They breed Galapagos Tortoises. They have created a "Full Hook-up" site for us next to their garage. Here are some photos from last year.

Well, we had a '70 Airstream 23' Safari and a '77 Ford supercab 3/4 ton truck. My wife, a native Californian, had never seen Yosemite, and I had a few extra days off in conjunction with Thanksgiving, so we loaded up the one youngster we had home (a year old at the time) and headed for the Yosemite Valley. We got there, and the weather was balmy and the valley as beautiful as ever. As night fell, we had our Thanksgiving dinner, and things were lovely. At about 9pm, the park rangers came through and told us the valley was expecting hundred mile an hour winds before morning, and that they were closing all of the campgrounds so campers wouldn't have "widowmakers" or worse yet, full trees falling on them. So... at 10:00 pm we (as well as all of the other campers) were on the way out of the valley into the storm in the dark on the highways... what a miserable trip! I still think the NPS rangers handled that issue very poorly. There certainly could have been other accommodations made.

And now you know... not nearly as exciting as you expected, was it?

Hey Fred, thats a really cool site

Actually, my trailer is sitting in that spot right now. Fred was kind enough to let me take it because I have a leaky ball valve and need the sewer hook up for the frequent dumps. But he is hooked up to the water.. a different kind of trailer twister..he is a few feet away from here.

We had a wonderful dinner and his friends ranch is truely a lovely place, with REALLY big friendly Turtlies. They come right up to you and rub on your leg. I don't want to cuddle one, but they are cute in their own special way.

It's a full moon tonite, and it is low sonoran desert, so the sand looks like snow. Kinda cool.

I wasn't able to get a WiFi signal, and got too busy to borrow Gina's aircard, so I'm posting now from home.

The first picture is the "South Facade" of the ranch that faces the highway, taken from the driveway near the gate. Our friends have set up trailer spaces along the driveway, near the garage and water tanks where they lived in a travel trailer while the ranch house was being built.

The second picture is the RV's lined up in the "Full Hook-up" sites. Visitors bring their own accommodations.

They have only one Galapagos Tortoise right now, and I missed getting his picture. They breed other species as well.
