11/26/15-First Vandwelling Thanksgiving

I always say, "Every day above ground not drooling is a great day." That was especially true today. Here are some pics of my first Thanksgiving as a fulltime vandweller, and definitely my first Thanksgiving in the desert.

I missed my family and close friends today, but I had a great time getting to know wonderful people better. Pups too! This is Bryce, our host. He provided our awesome turkey #1. James, Kyndal and Bob provided a deep fried turkey, but I forgot to take pics. Sure would have enjoyed seeing the drop. I hear James was decked out in head-to-toe flame retardant gear.

Camera check.

Fred and Michael waiting for their turn in the food line.

The food line. I think this is about half of us.

Cody, Bob's dog, snagged a drumstick. The GoPro on his back will let Bob know how. Too funny!

Yesterday I attended a jewelry class. Yes, a jewelry class - in the middle of the desert. The instructor, Cheri, was very patient with me. She even let me hang out after everyone was gone so I could finish. Thank you, Cheri! And she made my clasp for me. So sweet. So is her dog, Tony.

As I walked home from the class yesterday, I snapped a pic of Bryce flying his kite. This is also where we had the Thanksgiving gathering today. It looked a bit different with all the people and rigs. Thanks again Bryce!

I am grateFULL, and we had a blessed, wonderful day. I hope you and yours did too.
