Anybody camping on Thanksgiving?

For those of us south of the border that celebrate Thanksgiving this week, anybody hitting the trail? Where are you camping?

We camped last Thanksgiving and did a dutch oven turkey and dutch oven leftovers the day after at El Capitan State Beach just north of Santa Barbara. Forecast is in the mid 70's so we decided to do it again. Happy Thanksgiving!

You dont know me! A red cup is an improvement over the paper bag I usually drink out of! A fabulous $2.00 wine deserves crystal stemmed glassware? The red cups and cheap red wine are actually leftover from our sumptuous appetif of poutine under glass. The Mouton-Rothschild we normally drink with dinner is just off camera.


(how's that?)

Very Good! (But, isn't that two buck chuck, which is now $2.50)

El Capitan IS a great campground. We've been going there for 40 yrs. (BTW: UP has been running more freight trains lately, so you'll have the additional ambiance. )

My most memorable Thanksgiving was 1971 at Yosemite Valley in my 1st RV. The last two entries kind of preempt this additional comment: I drink 2-buck-Chuck out of anything but a wine glass, which is a step up in class (and down on quantity) from my college days - Thunderbird out of a jug slung over my shoulder.
