Um... no. It's 6 PM on the Friday after Thanksgiving. You should even be back from your black friday shopping by then.

Fix'd.

My point is that family stuff is most likely going to end up prevailing over watching DBFH. So once again...damnit.

All the Americans are going to have donate lots so that the crew is busing long into the next week so they still get a large Desert Bus Experience.

Take this as an opportunity to get the whole family involved in Desert Bus and for them to donate!

It will be interesting to see if the global economic downturn has any effect on the donations this year.

Will you be a bit clear this year how it would be possible to receive a tax return?

also, if you overspend on Black friday, and have nothing left to donate the following week, not only are you letting us down, you're letting the children down as well.

do you want that on your conscience?

I certainly wouldn't.

Another Thanksgiving weekend Desert Bus? Can't say I'm ecstatic at the prospect of missing most of the Desert Bussing, but maybe I'll be able to sneak in some late-night support in-between all the family gatherings.

I vote that next year's marathon occur on a different federal holiday. We Yanks don't care about Columbus Day much; why not do it then?

Procedures will be in place that will allow for fan involvement while upholding the super-secrecy of the location.

There may be blindfolds.

With help from this converter (Using the Canada/Yukon time zone for Victoria), I've managed to work out that we Brits will be around at 2 AM on Saturday the 29th, right when Desert Bus starts.

So I can hang around for a good long while :twisted:

Hey crew...it occurs to me that perhaps you should get some advertising beyond just those who watch LRR regularly? Such as...perhaps some flyers we can print out and distribute around our local residences?

Um...jokes aside, that date was set by President Abraham Lincoln (also known as "The Lincolnater", "A. Link", and "Uppercut Hammersmith" to his friends), so don't go knocking the Thanksgiving tradition.
