Although this trip was 99.99% ground dwellers, it was thoroughly enjoyable. Full of good solid winter camping wisdom taught by experienced deep cold campers. People used to camping in -40 degree weather. People who have plunged thru lake ice wearing snowshoes while pulling sleds. They have my respect. Some pics of the outing can be seen at http://wintertrekking.com/index.php?topic=507.15
Also ran into fellow HF member "Beep", so we declared it an official HF outing.
I'm the guy in the beret and you can tell where I slept.
