Buy a permit, chop down a tree. Easy peasy.

My family heads out the day after Thanksgiving to go get our Christmas tree... been a tradition for a few years now. If anyone would like to join we'd love to have you. Kids and dogs are welcome, we usually bust out some hot cocoa and snow sleds for the kids.

We pick a national forest around Bozeman and drive in as far as it takes to get a good tree (or 9 for friends)

We usually head out in the mid morning and are done by lunch-ish.

Anyone care to join this year?

maybe a little proof reading?
He's just planning for 2022. I admire the impressive organization. I really want to see how the tree stays alive that long, but science is always making new breakthroughs. :popcorn:

Some representation from my family is tentatively planning to join on the 26th the day after Thanksgiving. I think that is an almost commitment from me....

Anyone care to jump in?

I've started inviting non-Toyota friends as well. Weather should be nice.
My family is figuring on coming even though I am a Yota noob. I look forward to getting to know some people around here. Can I invite Heep.... I mean Jeep.... people?

Drew, thanks for organizing this. I think the day after thanksgiving is a great time to get out and really get that holiday spirit rolling. We’re gunna miss this one. Had a window yesterday afternoon and hit the local mountains and grab ours (wife gets more competitive every year) so tomorrow will start decorating, shopping, etc. Happy Thanksgiving all, this club and community is certainly something to be thankful for. Have a great one today and on the hunt tomorrow.

@YotaPaullie feel free to invite your friends, we'd be glad to have you.


Here is the link for the permits this year...

It's hit or miss if you finish before lunch. If you're worried, bring your own Lunch stuff.

Missed out on the fun this year. I’ve been in the Palm Desert, which is pretty opposite of the type of flora and fauna we have in MT.

Hope you guys had a blast!

Had a great time...

One 80, one 100, two 4tunners and a Tahoe.

We stirred a bear and cub from their den about 30 feet from our chosen tree, we’re all safe and sound but it was quite chaotic for a few minutes there locating the kids and others.

No pics of the bear? Come on Drew, you aren't going to become an Instagrammer if you don't take pics!
Ha! Glad you had a good time. Sorry I missed it.
