We plan to be camping in Dade City on Thanksgiving visiting our third son. We might run over to Ikea in Tampa on Friday. We have not decided.

We may or may not be camping, but for sure we won't be fighting crowds at a mall to buy stuff we don't need. May do a little shopping after Christmas when the really low prices get put on. Beyond that, maybe a few gifts from Sam's Club or Costco for some of our friends. Family would rather bargain shop after the silliness is I've. And we never go shopping on 'Black Friday', period😄😄😄😄

Change of plans. I will be home for Thanksgiving. The Thanksgiving buffet at DeGray will have to wait a year. The follow-up doctor's appointment that was just scheduled for the Wednesday before Thanksgiving kind of takes precedence. If I postponed the doctor's appointment I'd be too worried about the biopsy results to enjoy the trip. So the answer to "shopping or camping" is "Neither." My shopping will wait for Cyber Monday.

I always go to Costco to pick up the free cookbook they give out each year and to snag a couple of Black Friday Costco deals. That Dyson cordless stick vacuum for $125 off looks like it might be a good deal.
Black Friday

Other than that, I'm staying home. My plan is to shop online this year for all my Christmas shopping.

Borrego Springs for us too.
Tin Shack, I'll look for you.
We camp every year the weekend before and head home on Tuesday. Buy the groceries, prep the kitchen and cook all the sides and pies on Wednesday. Thanksgiving Day is easy. This year we'll take it to my in-laws house, make it easier for them. Black Friday, I try to hide. I'll be taking my wife to feed a big cat at Lions, Tigers and Bears.

Happy Thanksgiving

Watching the weather every day-
Plans may change-
If it doesn't rain every day, I'll camp.
If it rains every day, I'll stay home. If I can't build a fire, cook out, and walk, what's the point? I'll stay home and surf the net and watch TV while my wife shops-

I would get a seasonal job at Walmart, but I'm afraid it will get in the way of camping-
We can't have none o' dat der now, can we?

Since I have a deep disgust of massive crowds in stores, and have already hit overload on Christmas music in my local sushi joint, I know, beyond any doubt, that I will not be shopping on Black Friday in any shopping malls. I'm just not into the pain😄

I may make brief trips to the home centers for parts paint, and lumber.

Camping will be optional whilst I do some upgrades and get the AS newly titled in California.

I can't even recall the last time I was even in a shopping mall. Cabela's, Bass Pro, and Barnes & Noble can all be visited without getting anywhere near a mall, and those are the only places I even take the time to go browsing in. Even then, I go in with the intent to buy something specific, and only browse after I've found what I went there for.

I can't remember ever shopping the day after Thanksgiving, even before it became "Black Friday". It's my Mother's fault. She would find Christmas presents all throughout the year while out shopping. Me too ...

We, too, acquire the Christmas gifts during the year when we see them. We will be spending Friday preparing a large roast beef dinner for my wife's four adult daughters (and also their respective boy friend or girl friend) who will be home for the Holiday.

The corporate avarice to require their retail employees to work on Thanksgiving day is galling. So much for the family values marketing claim we hear all the time.

Protagonist, so sorry to hear about the medical concerns, but thanks for the info about DeGray. I have added their site to my loooong list of places to visit in the future.

Take care,
Cathy

There are actually several Arkansas State Parks with campgrounds that do the Thanksgiving buffet thing: DeGray Lake Resort State Park; Mount Magazine State Park; Petit Jean State Park; and Queen Wilhelmina State Park. The only one I've been to for Thanksgiving (so far) is DeGray, it being closest to meó and even then it's about a 10-hour drive one-way. When I was still working for a living it was hard to travel that far during my limited vacation time. Now that I'm retired it's a different story.
