I am supposed to travel from Ohio to Virginia for Thanksgiving. We are going to go see my sister Penny and stay at her home. I am going to Leave on the 26th and return on the 30th! I am driving down with my Mom and My sister Carmel. It is a long drive. But it will be fun too! Anyone else got Thanksgiving plans? Will you be traveling?

Have a safe trip to VA :) I'll be working that day and Black Friday so we won't be going anywhere. I hope my hubby makes a nice thanksgiving lunch/dinner though :)

I hope the weather will be ok for your trip. VA is looking very cold today - seems like it's going to snow soon :)

Yep we're heading from Florida to Texas for the week. We have family there. This is our first visit and rather exciting. I do really need to get out of here for a while.

It's about 19 hours each way. My son wants to drive straight through but I don't think that hubby can handle it at all. I think we will both be exhausted but him much more than I. Then have to deal with Thanksgiving and then drive back on Sunday, too much. I might be ok but he definitely would not. So we'll depart Tuesday and arrive Wed. Then leave for home on Sunday morning. Hope you have a great Thanksgiving.

Well, mom lives here so I'll be just joining my brother and probably his girl friend at mom's to eat in the main dining room at mom's place. They always have a fabulous spread there and it will be good to spend the time with mom and my brother. I have started feeding mom, but we'll see if I do it on Thanksgiving or not.

I guess you could say I am travelling. It is just an hours drive and maybe 45 miles is all. Going to our daughters again. Our son may show up but we never know till the last minute. Dad is not going as he doesn't want to have to move and motivate at all. The son-in-law does the cooking. His family will be there as well from 200 miles away. His mom, dad, brother and his GFR. Just a dozen all together so far possibly. As long as I don't have to watch another Star Wars movie I'll be fine. Otherwise I'll be sleeping on the floor during the movie like last year. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I will be traveling to my sisters house, she lives in Arkansas and I live in Oklahoma, its a two and a half hour drive, its a long way if you think about it. I would love to stay the night with her since we don't see her that often but I don't think my husband will want to. We will leave early Thanksgiving morning and be back sometime that night. I hope everybody has safe travels....Have a good day

Oh, we will probably do what we do every year and that is we go to my daughters house in town for the "big" dinner, (because she has a much bigger home), and we will have our own little meal here because the "Thanksgiving" meal is my husbands favorite..Besides, this year my husbands birthday falls Thanksgiving this year, so I don't know, maybe my daughter and I can make "special" plans at her house for that.. I hope you have a wonderful time, Virgina has got to be beautiful this time of year..

Oh yeah, I am sure you will be much warmer since you are in Northern Ohio..So you travel though Pa. to get to Virgina? I know when we went to Pa when I was a kid, we did go through Wheeling..But that area there is so close, I guess it depends on where you are going..I put you on my pray list, I remember well those mountains and that was in the summer time, no snow..
