Thanksgiving in the Desert 2012

I reckon it's time to start planning! Flint and I will most likely have to cut our trip short this year, but that shouldn't effect the Saturday before Turkey Day.

Who's in?

Can't you do a short extension or orders modification that gets you to be on leave like say the Friday prior. So you would technically be on leave/ travel to you new post.

Hope you can make it Jesse.
It's usually pretty simple.
We meet at the McDonalds in Florence, AZ in the morning.
rstep and I tend to be chronically early, although last year I was in class until 3pm.
Drive out the Florence/Kelvin highway a bit, find a big flat wash with firewood.
Sometime after that I usually fall over backwards in a chair.

H_M_T_81 sure wish you could make it since the trouble you had last year.

I hope Dan and I can make it this year?

Since we moved to Wrightwood I have gotten kinda busy with the chamber, and I am in charge of our Christmas tree lighting. It happens the day after Thanksgiving.
