I don’t really consider ours traveling, because it’s only a little over an hour to get to the town where both his and my parents live. SO glad we don’t have to go any further than that!

We are traveling, but we both have to work on Black Friday, so we are traveling that weekend and I am making our first Thanksgiving Dinner together!  haha…. But my bridal shower and bachelorette party are the Saturday after Thanksgiving, so we have to go home for that.  It’s about a 6 hour drive to my parents house.  Then my FH is going about 2 hours north to visit his family while I do the girly stuff…. haha… On Sunday my mom and I are going up north to see the church we’re getting married at and have lunch with the FH’s family before the FH and I drive 4 more hours back to Chicago.  Haha…. lots of driving that weekend!

I travelled last year for Thanksgiving, but I flew to Cali so it was pretty sweet. This year we’re doing Christmas at my folks’ house the weekend of Dec 18, and they live 5 hours away. I don’t dread the travelling as long as I’m not driving alone.

We travel upstate to my/our parents’ houses.

@jenniferespos: Take Amtrak!  Or Megabus!  Driving upstate is SUCH a hassle.  We only do it once a year for Christmas because we have presents and such.  If you book your Amtrak tickets early, they’re $75 round trip.  And now Megabus goes to Albany as well.

I’m traveling a whopping 4 miles to my (Future)IL’s house… I haven’t gone home for Thanksgiving in YEARS and normally spend it very happily alone, cooking for myself, but this year… I”ll be going over there. I’m taking rolls and dessert!

FI and I are traveling to my parents for Thanksgiving. We are traveling from Sweden to Texas. I am soooo happy we’re going…last year we spent Thanksgiving with just the two of us over here and it was the first time I hadn’t gone home. In the future it will be pretty easy to split holidays, since his family is Danish and they don’t celebrate Thanksgiving (obviously Smile)  we’ll spend Christmas in Europe and Thanskgiving in Texas!

We’re traveling to the Oregon Coast from Seattle, so about 3.5 hours of driving time each way.  It’s not a bad drive with the FI though 🙂

We are going to my dad’s place in Maryland.  Leaving Wednesday and coming back on Monday.  Flying in and out of DC though so that will be fun.

I wish we could travel this year – my fiance has yet to meet *any* of my family, and I’d love to bring him to my sister’s house. However, his job sent out an announcement that they’ll be getting Thanksgiving and the day after off, and nothing more. He’ll be expected to work Wednesday night, as well as that weekend.
