Thanksgiving Gathering -Dec 1-3, 2017

The annual (almost famous) Thanksgiving Gathering will be the fist weekend in December. We are doing it late this year so as not to interfere with everyone's family thanksgiving gatherings but before family Christmas events. Besides, any time is a good to to gather with friends and give thanks.



WHEN:
Camping starting Friday, Dec 1 and ending Sunday PM (Dec 3)

The traditional T'giving meal will be early afternoon in Dec 3. By the way, this weekend also coincides with the nearby city of Clifton's Norwegian festival and they will be have a Norwegian lunch on Saturday Dec 2. All are welcome to join us.

You can camp Friday and/or Saturday nights or just come for the meal.

WHERE:
557 Rivercrest Rd
Valley Mills, TX

FOOD TALK:
For Friday and Saturday evening meals:
I'm thinking of keeping the meals simple. I could just get some sausage, hot dogs and fixings for frito pie. Easy to cook and easy to eat while we sit around and watch the fire goddess try and burn the place down.
For Saturday morning:
We will have biscuits and gravy, etc. A hot breakfast.
Sunday morning:
sKatz may be bringing some Kolninghees but if you are not up for exotic food, there is a local donut place in town
that has good kolaches. We will have a large meal at lunch so we will not want to ruin your appetite.
For Saturday lunch:
everyone is on their own. Some plan to go riding with Mr2Mch or JT and may end up at some of the eateries in the area. All the cool kids are going to the Norwegian Luncheon in Clifton.
Sound OK? Any other thoughts, ideas?
Now for the BIG MEAL

I'm guessing by now everyone may be tired of turkey, so we are planning to change things up a bit this year.
Main course
TxTiger (Ron) is going to bring ham, pork butt and brisket.
Sides.
It is no problem for us to go buy sides and deserts but some may want to bring their specialty dish and that makes it extra special but I will need to have an idea as to who is bringing what so that I know how much I need to buy.
Here is what I know so far
Beemerless and Thee Saint
Baked Potatos and fixings
Mack & cheese
Zephyr
Pinto beans and buttermilk cornbread
duchess
Koffee Kup pie (I'm hoping for the black forest chocolate pie)
Green Eyes
Broccoli casserole
Cobbler
WoodButcher (via Veronica)
Mighty fine deserts
Is there anyone else that I missed? If you want to bring something let me know.
Don't worry if you are unable to bring anything. There will be plenty to eat and you can just make a donation to offset food cost. I REPEAT. THERE WILL BE PLENTY OF FOOD, come hungry
[/indent]

FACILITIES

CAMPING:

We have a little over three acres so there is plenty of room to tent camp. Just find a plot of land and call it home. I would avoid the cliff behind the house . Also, there is a lamp post in the front than comes on on night so unless you want a very bright night light, you might not want to camp there. Should be able to find enough trees for hammocks

Trailers. Trailers are welcome, but no hook ups, so you will need to be self contained. WARNING, the circular driveway is tight. I can barely get my 26' trailer around it without hitting a tree. If you can't make the turn, you may have to leave your trailer here, but that's OK because we are wanting a new trailer anyway. If you are bringing a trailer, please let me know before hand what time you are coming and how big your rig is so I can reserve a spot for you.

Electricity

We can prolly run some cords to supply some 15amp service. This should be enough to provide enough juice to run lights, CPAP's, charge phones, etc. BUT NO ELECTRIC HEATERS PLEASE, that will trip the circuits. If its cold, plan on using a propane heater, extra blankets or find someone to smuggle with.

Restrooms.

During the day, you may use bathrooms in the house or our RV (it has hookups), after 10, we have several non-gender specific trees available.

Re: Thanksgiving Gathering -Dec 1-3, 2017

Sound great. I'm in. Last year the food was fantastic. I ate turkey & dressing until I was sick. Then I ate a little more. Then I had pie.

Thank you Theresa and Bob for inviting us again. We might trailer the little bikes Friday night after work or ride up Saturday. We will tent camp either way.

By the way, for the record it's Teresa. Like Saint Teresa

Or just "Saint" for short

Or as I refer to her - "Yes Mam"
