Happy Thanksgiving

hello! i'd just like to wish all canucks a VERY happy Thanksgiving this weekend!

may we be thankful for a wonderful camping season and also for our fiberglass friends on both sides of the border.

this spring we met many new friends at vivian's eggfest held in kingston, ontario....and we also renewed friendships with some wonderful people who we met up with again. it is wonderful to put names from this forum onto actual faces!

we hosted ed and marje shook and also alf and mary anne stacey----this whole concept of hosting is a fantastic way to connect with some truly wonderful people.

again, happy thanksgiving from someone who is truly thankful.

I think that we should also wish our American friends a Happy Columbus Day.
Not sure why, but they get to celebrate it twice. They also have a Thanksgiving later on.

We don't get turkey on Columbus day, in fact we're lucky to even get the day off work . Columbus day celebrates Columbus landing in the Americas (though Native Americans certainly don't feel that this is anything to celebrate.)
Here's the Official Thanksgiving Definition:
  1. legal holiday: a legal holiday marking the feast given in thanks for the harvest by the Pilgrim colonists in 1621.
  2. legal holiday in Canada: in Canada, a legal holiday observed as a day of giving thanks for the harvest and other good things received.

Happy Thanksgiving and Columbus Day. Off camping this weekend for the last time this year. My friends and I
also celebrate Halloween this weekend by carving pumpkins and putting them around our campsite. Lots of fun
and good food.

Happy Thanksgiving to all. I am rushing back from a couple weeks in Southern Utah, and am right now an hour south of the border. Home tomorrow to reload the trailer. Not going to miss going camping with family and friends this weekend. It is usually our last trip of the year in the trailer too.

Is this hosting similar to a home exchange? Only exchanging some driveway space instead of homes? From what I can gather home exchanges etc. seem to work well for a lot of people and I've wondered in the past about "driveway exchanges" I know I'd rather stay in a fellow egg owner's driveway for a couple of days, close to a city that I wanted to see, than in a commercial trailer park. In my case, my driveway is minutes from some major attractions and there aren't really many alternatives for visitors that are close to the city. Didn't want to hijack the thread but was wondering about the term "hosting".

Our turkey is in the fridge defrosting. Can't wait, I love turkey dinner.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

Ron

Hi: theresa p... Happy Thanksgiving and thanks again for the wonderful BBQ party in Moncton. It really was great to see you and Dennis again.
No turkey here!!! We're having 20-25 people for locally raised Prime Rib on the spit. It just fit across the bottom of the 5.0 fridge with a few 1.9ltr. growlers of local IronSpike Copper Ale on the rack above.
We're doubly thankfull this year for all the friends we've met and forty years together too!!!

If we all celebrated our own Thanksgiving AND our northern (or southern) neighbors, we could have turkey twice. How could that hurt?

ron---in response to your queries regarding hosting----there is a thread on this site that speaks to the idea of allowing fellow FGRV members to "camp" in one's driveway/yard/lot/whatever is available on offer.....so far we've done it 4 times ( twice for alf and mary anne!!). we've met fantastic people, had lovely dinners and great conversations and most importantly, made "connections" with fellow like-minded new friends.
if you are interested, add your info to the thread and see what happens. from our perspective, we, too, think it's much nicer than a campground.


and alf---your beef-on-a-spit party sounds terrific! and congratulations on your 40 years together with mary anne.

I'm planning a upper New York camping trip at a converted ski slope turned into a campground, hopefully with snow and a turkey dinner at a old time railroad station turned into a restaurant in nearby town. This cg has full hookups that are winterized with underground faucets below the frost line.I also have a heated water hose. Did I mention they are also Passport America member?
