Deep Thought is done thinking.
Deep Thought will take the eVent Packa.
If you count Lofty, Alf233 and myself, that's three orders (only? at least?) on their way to Canada.
I'm curious to watch the shipping time/customs turn-around time--especially before/after...
It will be worth the wait!!
They start shipping orders that are in stock and ready to go, then it's priority shipping to those who have booked a trip and need it pronto.
Seeing order numbers higher...
I see you've got the pump cap on there.
No pump or original cap?
These were the hairpin turns in the trail, up and around trees/rocks, that made it an advantage to have a sled on ropes. It allowed me to pull the sled up close and pull hard on one side to drag it...
Finally added the pictures!
Sorry it took so long to get them up.
We all made excellent time to Algonquin Park's West Gate on Friday February 15th.
We had decided to meet at 11am, and I rolled into the parking lot at 10:59am to find Hankster walking up the parking...
There be a trick to it.
Always empty spit valves and keep the mouthpiece in your pocket. I also boil up some tea while I play.
Fingers going numb is more of a...
-30 on Monday morning??? Nooooooo!!! why did I have to leave??? :(
Still, minus-whatever, it was fun hanging with you guys.
Did you get my message on your way out?
Winter expedition info:
Mizzy Lake Trail is located at km 15.4 of Highway...
Martin: Bring whatever you can scrounge up for warmth so you can at least hang your new Hennessy (show it off!!) and try a nap while you're visiting during the day.
It wouldn't do to have you hike...
Here is a picture I took of the area from my Basemap program using Ibycus 3.2 Topo.
*Note, My Ontario Trails GPS map and my Algonquin Park map shows that the Mizzy...
I'd like to thank all those intrepid explorers and those people with knowledge of the area. I wish I knew the area better to add my two cents.
All I can say about snowmobiles is, if you're...
Holy smokes Fronkey!!
Are we going to be getting a full-blown survival report with the legendary recovered footage?
It's gut-wrenching to hear about a cuben tarp ripped up. That wind up in Section...
Dwight, Ontario, closest LCBO to Niger Lake, Ontario.
Average high of -2.7
Average low of -14.9
Record high 12.5 (1984)
Record low -37.5 (1987)
-34 tonight, feels like -38
Wouldn't it be...
Sorry to hear about your ankle Keg!
I'm subscribed and will be following this. I'm interested, but waiting to hear back on time off requests.
I just read through the thread for the Frozen Butt...
Hope your Hammock Gear order pulled off a Christmas Eve miracle!
My order took 2.5 days to clear customs with the dreaded tax paperwork, so your package's 4 minutes in customs may be really...
I tried the stock Deep Jungle XL with the reflector pad on a windy and snowy 0 degree night (32F). I had to bail around 2AM when it became pretty uncomfortable on the underside.
I could have...
I'll take it if that falls through.
StumpJumper would be angry that you put a hole in the hip belt pocket...
Yup. The technique is important (honed after many years of packages and a few early years as a grocery clerk). Slice the sides, pull the top flaps up and away from the box and then cut that. Just...
I hope you took pictures!!
I see a lot of all-black under quilts, but I had to go green outer/black inner. I'm curious about other people's fashion choices. Was black on black the big seller this...
For those of you eagerly awaiting your downy goodness...
Here are some teasers.
Was customs kind to you with your Hammock Gear order, Barlutti? (congrats on your new incubator!)
I noticed that the usual Canada Post $5 handling fee I've paid in the past was $9.95 on this...
Following order numbers won't help much and could be downright confusing or frustrating. Best to ignore it. As I understand it, depending on the items ordered and the priority, some orders will get...
Hahaha I can't believe I missed that post. Bullied...right.
You'll thank me at the next hang ;)
I've found many postal workers running the counters here at Canada Post to be slightly...un-helpful (can't speak for USPS). Then again, they're not mind-readers and you can't expect them to know...
Those customs officers in Mississauga must be "WTF is with all this down crossing the border???" FLAG! FLAG! FLAG!! (for duty/tax)
My order cleared customs Tuesday morning, so maybe you caught a...
Is that the one you ordered at the Valens hang?
My black friday HG order made it out of Mississauga yesterday and it's waiting at the post office...pending taxes...some $35
I love me whoopies and Marlin Spike hitch :)
Personally, I've never liked the way buckles pinched the webbing in one spot.
I've had some rings shear through some cheap polypro webbing from...
Can you melt folds into the pad (alternating top and bottom) with a hot knife or soldering iron to turn your cheap ccf roll up into a z-rest-type folding pad?
If so, how deep can you melt the...
Do I hear an Ontario group-buy in the works?? :)
Or the start of an online petition for Len's Mill?
Congratulations on your December hang at Rattlesnake!
Did you end up at site #3? Sorry to hear that you had trouble finding suitable trees. On the other hand, hanging on a hillside...
It was a great time with some great people.
I loved the chance to check out all the different rigs and I was amazed to see the latest in tarp technology.
That cuben fiber is pretty awesome!
Hello and welcome from Toronto!
Echo what Chard and Bubba said.
Lots of options for winter hanging besides underquilts. Pads and an old winter sleeping bag have worked for me in the past--and...
I hope everyone got home safe!!
I stayed back for a little while, ate some clementines and pulled out the horn and played some Christmas carols. Left around 1pm.
I had a great time hanging out...
I'm off to see site 134, but I'll talk to the gate attendant and add myself to whichever site isn't full. Can't wait!!
I couldn't resist this offer!
Had to have a legendary Incubator. Another order bound for Canada :)
Thanks for the sale!
Did I count 18 people on that role call list??
I believe Jiblets posted attendance for both nights.
Can I make it an even 20?
I just got last minute approval to hang. I'm in for Saturday.
But still raises some questions, is the hyperlight the best Hammock, I want to use rings to hang it and the hyperlight has a very thin rope and minimum load carrying, what if I need to share my...
I think this is one of the greatest features of your videos, Shug. It helps to knit the community together so we can respect each other (and our differing options) and continue to spread the love of...
To be clear, the fly in question is a HH Hyperlite silnylon fly, 4+ years old. The whole underside of the rain fly is pretty "rubbery", not just along the seams (if it was seam-sealer). It's not...
Thanks for the talcum powder idea and the warning about cornstarch/baby powder!
I just knew there would be a wealth of wisdom here in this forum.
will these work with 1.5 inch webbing?
I've got a Hennessy Hyperlite rain fly and the underside of the fly sticks to itself something fierce.
When I take it out of the snake skins, parts of it are practically glued together and make an...
I've got one just like it with my Hyperlite. It's a great rain fly.
The Hyperlite rain fly is for the sensible minimalist.
It's a tiny tarp, but it covers you right where you need it. Perfect for...
Echo that thanks to Bubba for the heads-up!
I'm interested in this hang. I'll look into getting the weekend off work.
Just got back from hanging this past weekend. Not too cold, but pretty wet. ...
will you take market value of aluminum + shipping?
**as of 1:32am Oct 1**
Here is the opening list of our annual Odds and Ends sale. If you
have any questions or would like to order something listed below,
please let us know by emailing...
AFAIK down creates warmth by lofting and creating dead-air space that provides insulation, is that right? So it's the air that does the insulating and not the down fibers themselves?
When there is...
It may be a little late, but this post may help others searching for the same answers (as I was this morning).
Marmot does a great tour of their down testing lab available here:...
