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.
