FYI, the above map is outdated. When the full hookup renovations were completed last year, all sites became  "back in" on a parking pad. Previously, there were no designated parking pads so you could situate your camper & vehicle however you wanted to on your site.

The campground layout has changed when they upgraded with full hook ups.  They are all back-in sites.  I've updated the map.

We are making our reservations to come but will be in site 57 which is not on the list above. All the others are unavailable at this point. Just Carol and I for now but hoping to entice a few more family members to come. We are in for the potluck. No fur-babies with us either.

We'd like to attend this one, but Mark, (BuxCamper) doesn't know if he'll be traveling for work, and I don't trust myself to tow the new camper.  Might have to wait for the last minute and see if there is a site left.

We just found out we are free this weekend, but now I see no sites available.  If anyone decides to not go, let us know.

Site 060-ADA, FULL HOOKUP SITES is an ADA site but now available to the public since the campground is sold out.

We didn't realize the camp was sold out so quickly. We booked Site 60.

Halloween Rally is over, time to look forward to the Thanksgiving Rally. 

I need to hang around while the turkeys cook this year and take notes because the following week I'll be deep frying 5-6 turkeys for a meal my church is providing for a youth center.  I've deep fried turkey before (singular) but never running 2 fryers for multiple turkeys  :chef:

Matt,
 You better have some good help one person can't do it alone. Even 1 bird.
Title: Re: Nov 2017 Thanksgiving Closer
Post by: Lone Lock on October 10, 2017, 09:29:32 AM
Don't worry, we are recruiting many members of our church to be there that day to help with the meal. 

Every month we go to a youth center for at risk youth, THE POINT (http://parkesburgpoint.com/about/who-we-serve/), and serve a meal and provide various activities.  Personally I am only involved with the food part, usually only washing dishes because I don't get there until after work around 6.  Once a year around October November we try to go all out from the typical pasta, hamburgers & hot dogs, chicken, etc.  Last year we made steak and baked potatoes.  This year we are making a full blown Thanksgiving dinner. 

We are having the congregation members make pies instead of our usual cookies.  We are making real mashed potatoes not instant so we have to peel a lot of potatoes.  We are breaking up into teams to handle each aspect.  I'll be in charge of the turkeys along with 1 other guy and a floater or 2.  I took the day off since we will need to start this around noon.

After 10 years of cooking 46 turkeys or over 736 lbs of meat - I am stepping down this year with cooking. 
I think I've done my share.  :omg:

With some help from 2HappyCampers and Samebutdifferent, Chiefbowes will be taking over this year.

We do need to someone to find and coordinate a local firewood delivery.  The cost will be split by everyone attending.  If you can help, please send me a private message? Thanks!

Ok, let's talk turkey! Or in this case everything that goes with it... RnR will bring a crockpot of mashed potatoes.
