Thanksgiving in the Woods 2016

Did not know which forum this would be appropriate in so I put it here.
We celebrated our family's 10 year of going to Red Top Mt S.P. to spend Thanksgiving week in the woods. We set up our shelter and had our usual feast on last Thursday. Though the camp ground hosts attempted to make life ruff for us, we managed to have a good time. The hosts had the mistaken belief that they were camp ground bosses. This has since been corrected. They were very rude and very inexperienced at their job. The Park Manager has assured us that this will be fixed. Anyway we ate good and here is the proof.

This is a propane fire ring I bought due to the ban on burning wood in campfire rings. The hosts came around the day after Thanksgiving and told us we could not use the propane ring, though it seems it was ok for them to.




Our meal shelter. The hosts said we would have to take it down, that it was not allowed. We got the Rangers involved and the hosts were told that we had done this for ten years and was not a problem. That is when all the problems with the hosts got started.



Here are the food pics.

Oh I hoped we'd get to see your celebration again this year!! Those new camp caretakers need some lessons in hosting or find other employment. What a lovely example your family continues to be of "Americana" for Thanksgiving.

Love your pics, Paymaster! Mouth watering food and beautiful scenery. I'm also glad to hear the new campground hosts were put in their place and the rangers were in your camp - pun intended!

Sweet furbaby - and nice to see it was pretty much Tshirt weather there. Thanks for sharing your pics.

Thanks Y'all. I talked to the Park Manager just now. There will be some changes and he apologized profusely.

Congratulations on another wonderful family Thanksgiving, Paymaster! I hope next year's goes much smoother with the site.

And please tell me those last two pictures of your adorable pup are from inside your house! I would hate to think that an RV is classier than my place.
