Camping is all about tradeoffs – small sacrifices in comfort for the sake of efficiency.
As I was packing-up our gear, this morning, I had to chuckle at the fact that we are packing a homemade cherry pie – but a jar of gravy! I guess some things you just cannot compromise on, and that would include pies.
I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving! We will be cooking our Thanksgiving meal at a Forest Service campground in the Ventana Wilderness, east of Big Sur, in the Carmel Valley. Camping on Thanksgiving has become a bit of a tradition for us, since moving to California, as neither Lisa or myself has any family, here.
I meant during your Thanksgiving camping trips. I camp in the mountains of southern Oregon and would think cold and snow may change your plans.
That’s a great tradition you have. Are there any weather conditions that would prohibit your plans?
Good question! The only time we have ever called a camping trip short, was because of heat. We were camped along the Klamath River, east of Yreka, California, and it was easily 110 degrees.
That looks utterly decadent! Belated thanksgiving, I hope you had a wonderful time up there.
Hope you have a couple of extra blankets. They are talking about some pretty chilly conditions down here in the Big Bear area of the San B National Forest.
It was really chilly on Thanksgiving morning, Suzi, but it warmed up and was a beautiful day. Hope you two had a great time in the Big Bear area!
