Thanksgiving 2013

So what are y'all's plans for Turkey Day this year? My wife's family is coming to our place and my old Platoon Sergeant from my LT days is going to join us since his kids are with his ex this year.

I think I'm gonna start drinking that morning!

Anybody have any cool traditions they'd like to share?

Our two biggers are with Dad for T-giving, Chris has been working in DFW during the week, and has to go clear out a site day after T-giving through Sunday. It's just going to be us and the little, I tend to prefer frying a turkey. We usually have a fried one and a roasted one, a few sides, and lots of deserts. Our only tradition is frying and drinking, beginning early in the morning. Growing up we went hunting in the morning, then would go home pour drinks and start cooking.

Deployed... looks like the day will be a big D&P show for some brass that are coming in to 'see the troops' on Thanksgiving. Can't we just eat our processed turkey and canned dressing in peace?

Typically we go tailgate a big traditional Thanksgiving morning 'hunt' (think: horses/dogs/foxes) and break into the egg-nog early on. One of my favorite traditions -- as you'll see in the picture the Rover has fit in nicely to the tradition. It happens to be the only time I've ever used the jump seats too.

Sorry Dave, my Thanks and Appreciation to you and everyone else in our Military both active and retired. I really appreciate all that you guys do and all that you give up to do it. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!

My parents just drove in for Thanksgiving. They are staying with me for a week or so and my dad's whole side of the family is coming over to my place, there should be around 20-25 of us...I'm going to start drinking early too! lol

Going to the beach for Tgiving.
4x4'ing on the sand is much better than Black Friday shopping.

Probably break some clays and then dinner @ the matriarchs manor house on the 200+ year old banquet table on 200+ year old chinese import/canton china/ while sitting in creaking 200+yr old chairs.

My parents have one of the original Virginia tobacco plantation homes and it is completely furnished with correct original furnishings. If you have ever traveled to colonial Williamsburg- that

Lounging around on comfortable furniture like Newman will have to wait till we get back to my shack.

Will be working on Rover projects until late morning and exiting the workshop when the family all gathers at our place for the feast that gets accompanied by Belgian tripel and other speciality beers.

Then Friday morning am finishing up the stumpy R380 install in the 110.

Saturday am hitting the half price sale at pick-n-pull and later Newman is in town for a visit.

You'll be right by my parent's beach house, which is in the 4x4 section.

Happy Turkey Day to everyone (almost everyone) on the forum.

Over the river and through the woods to grandmother's house in North Florida me and the daughters go. Smoking the turkey on the Big Green Egg. Beer. Head to the hunting lease to see if any deer, turkey or hogs are about (every year my brother-in-law and I talk about duck hunting but we never end up going). Beer. SEC football and some more beer. At some point we will hit the local Undersheriff's ranch and his private range to burn through some brass.

Paul,
Thank you. I hope you are rooting for USF (i know they are not SEC). So I guess watching the Gators is on the agenda! I am looking forward to Thunderstorms, oak trees, boating and some good ole southern hospitality. We are going to miss the weather and SD in general but we will be forever in the poor house with a SoCal mortgage tied to us.

Our tradition is a maple brine turkey grilled to perfection. I even pulled it off while deployed for my troops. Much better than the crap served in the mess hall.

This year will be dinner with my parents at our place than the cross the midwest trek to the inlaws for Thanksmass and nasty food that would choke a buzzard.

Sounds like a blast! We all know Auburn is going to beat Bama right?

Lots of family in town, drinking starts no sooner than 8am. Break out the bourbon about 11. Watch my beautiful kids tear around the house, maybe break in the new fire pit if it ever stops raining.
