Thanksgiving in the wild

Yesterday my husband and I went over all the possibilities of where to have Thanksgiving this year. He asked, "Your mothers place? My mothers place?" I said, "Our apartment is too small, do you want to go out to eat this year?" Okay, all of those suggestions were nixed. He then said,
"Why don't we put up a tent and have it on our new farm?"
Now, that is one I didn't even think of. However, it does sound like a good idea. Hm..I wonder what Martha Stewart would think?
This is gonna take some researching and planning, we have no water and no electricity yet.

We go up to our place, camping on Thanksgiving. There is a buffet restaurant on the mountain that has home cooking, as good as I'd make. The family comes up. It's been a nice change. We eat and come back to camp to veg out!

Lack of water and electricity are easy to get around. Buy some of those 5 gallon water containers with spiggots. As for electricity, we bought a jump starter and run holiday lights from it. We use LED lights. They use less electricity, so the battery lasts longer. We also have a coleman lantern, which puts out a lot of light.
