I wish I come out there and meet some of the local hangers (and mostly LEARN from you!), unfortunately I don't think my setup is winter ready yet, having just got a hammock over the holidays i am lacking in the insulation department. Snowshoeing is one of my main winter activities too I'll definitely be looking forward to hearing how it goes!
If you are relatively close to Algonquin, come out for a day visit and meet everyone and check out their gear. We are only planning to be a couple of kilometers (at most) from the cars. Keep an eye on this thread for the final route and destination we are going to take.
Ok, with that minor modification I'm now looking for snowshoes... and a pulk.... I don't like the MSR shoes at MEC and am looking at a set of Ojibwes.... God this camping thing gets expensive...
Personally, I plan on bring my 5' aluminum standard downhill kid's toboggan. Served me well on 100+ ice fishing trips; should do for an overnighter! If we were bushwacking, then that might be a different story, but our trails are mostly flat and groomed. At least as far as the general area of our final site. (K.I.S.S.).
Dan, not sure but I may be able to wrangle a spare set that you can use. Need to make a phone call to find out for sure.
At this point doesnt look like we will be able to afford to buy a under and overquilts heavy enough for this trip. If that is the case i would have two pairs of snowshoes to loan out.
Would be great if we could borrow two underquilts for the trip. We have top insulation covered.
