    Smile Final Countdown

    Hi All,

    Glad to hear Valens is a go!

    (Just as an FYI Mew lake in Algonquin is open year round and has a similar set up with warm showers/washrooms and drive in sights if we ever need a "safe" back up for our annual gear test)

    One of the posts says there may not be pottable water, any conformation on that? I will bring some anyway.

    Once again I am planning on a stop at Canadian Equipment Outfitters ( I have to exchange an xmas gift and may find a new toy or two ) He has shown interest in our hangs in the past and I will let him know where we are. If anyone wants me to pick anything up I am glad to do that.

    I am shooting for a 16:00 arrival. Looking forward to seeing all who can attend.

    Cheers

    Cedar

    Thanks Cedar; great tip on Mew Lake... File that away for next year!

    Looking forward seeing everyone.. Drive safely.

    Incidentially, is anyone bringing a large grill and/or tripod? I'll be bringing mine, but at roughly 15" x 8", it's too small for a large group.

    Extra tarps and ropes are a good idea. Valens can sport quite a breeze running the length of the trees, and a big tarp goes a long way. I'll be bringing a couple for sure.

    I'll be bringing 2 tarps instead of one then.I also will be bringing a grill. 18" x 12' ish.,and some stainless "sticks" for cooking meat,etc.
    No signs,no fees,no rules,nobody. My kind of campsite.
    See and understand the obvious and the mysteries will disappear.

    Great.

    I've got some errands to run after work, so I expect to be rolling in pretty late Friday evening. Won't be the first time I've set up in the dark. Won't be the last.

    Sorry I couldn't make it- I got turned back by the roads. I started off this morning and about 1/2 hour into the drive there was snow falling on slushy roads. It's about a 3 hour drive for me, so I didn't want to fight the roads that whole distance. Hopefully if you're not too far in for the back country I'll be able to make 2 nights there.

    Hope everyone has a great time!
