6/6 with the weekends hang.
Here's Februarys hang. Got out with my boys and some friends for the night. Low of -4C with a ton of snow over night.
Welcome from Northwestern Ontario! Lots of great info to be found here to get you hanging in style.
5/5. Will be 6/6 this weekend.
Cool video! The hike to Section 13 was amazing! I'm going to try to actually get some pics up today.
I've never understood the expedition. The explorer offers so much more room and more comfort. They'd probably get much better reviews if they just ditched the Expedition altogether as so many people...
My GSI coffee press is am absolute necessity. It makes for a nice cup of coffee in the morning. :)
Lol. I was just thinking of all the memories you had right at the tip of your nose. :)
Why'd you do that? :)
Awesome Poppins! Next year we'll see how three or four at a time work on the fire. :)
Awesome pic Poppins!
Thanks LookinForArrows! It turned out pretty good. I didn't take many, but they all seemed to turn out.
Got my January hang in with two nights at the Minnesota Frozen Butt Hang. Got down to -29C/-20F on the second night.
Toots and I made it back safe to Canada. Thanks again tp our American neighbours for hosting another awesome hang. The first night was great bit the second night was spectacular. -20*F! Lots of PR...
Toots and I will be leaving at 6 am Friday morning. We're blasting right through Finland and heading to Ely to loom at mukluks, then heading back. Should be there around 10-11am.
I have 4 gallons of water already packed. My pulk is almost ready to go, need to pick up the coffee crisps.
The parking lot is the grey dot. The pin is the end of the walk. Directly North is a pine stand. We'll be hanging in there.
When we started hanging my daughter was 4. An integrated bug net is essential. We've found a kid flipped upside down a couple of times. I disagree on the full sized sleeping bags. Our younger two are...
I'm bringing some garlic bread, and, something else. Another person as well.
Welcome from NW Ontario!
I would count it as December. If it counted for both you could camp out at the end of every second month, which is only 6 nights.
I got a 20 degree long from UGQ this past fall. Used it down to around freezing and was still comfortable. I went with the 20 as it covers me for 6 months of the year up here. My winter quilt comes...
I use my down vest or jacket. Dual use and warm and comfy.
Thanks for the smile and chuckle on a rather sad Christmas. Merry Christmas to you and your family.
Welcome from Canada. We only have a short period of warm weather here, and it is nice in the hammock.
I don't have to be at work until Monday night. If anyone is interested in staying out Sunday night as well, let me know and I'll pack extra food.
At the rate we're going, I'll be pulling out my summer gear for Januarys hang.
Here's my Decemeber hang. One night camp near Long Island Lake in Northwestern Ontario. -13C steady through the day and night with light snow.
Wow you guys would freak out up here. Once you leave the main highway your cell signal disappears completly. I guess I'm old school from 15 years working in the bush before cell phones existed. You...
The whole point of going into the woods is to eacape the cell phones and tablets. :)
My deep winter quilts are GDD. Almost 5lbs worth between the two. Nice and toasty down to -34C so far. Saved a fair amount from the goose down.
That's Shug. King of the Sasquash. :)
Just made it out for November. This was Friday night. Brought my 9 year old out for his first winter hang. He slept for 10.5 hours.
Had a great night but took very few pictures.
My namesake did...
Welcome from NW Ontario!
All I do is a box stitch. A square around the outside with an x through the middle.
Cool tests. It would be interesting to see how amsteel handles the same test.
I do it similar to you. Once the second half is rolled, I just run my hand down the section to expel it out the end, then pull over the snakeskin.
I had to go the custom route for my -50C quilt set. Unfortunately, the place I got them from is no longer operating. You always have the option of layering. I do this for my son when he comes out...
I usually use the tie outs on my hennessey with various tarps. I'm not sure what kind of problems you're trying to avoid. I just stake out as normal.
I've always taken the minimal clothing approach, not due to the reasons most people choose. I simply hate sleeping in clothes. I got my winter quilts custom made to handle -50C. I've slept...
I'm not sure. I've never run out of fire wood. I tend to just site by the fire until bedtime and enjoy the peace and quiet.
I had a custom set of quilts made for our Northern winters by underquilts.com. Unfortunately they are no longer operating. None of the other main companies would make one rated to the winters up...
Welcome from NW Ontario! Winter hanging is great. No bugs and very few people.
I used 1.1oz ripstop nylon. Cheap and effective.
The one in the pic is the base camp model. It's pretty big but does a good job for the family. There are two smaller options as well.
I made two UQP for my wife and myself. They work great. They ended up around 106" long, just like the 2QZQ ones. They're hung loosely with shock cord from the ends, with a tensioner in the...
I posted on several blogs, but never got a notice that anyone else had replied, so basically forgot about them.
Welcome to the site! Winter camping is the best, most people are absent from the woods, and there are no bugs. :)
One of my favourite pieces of gear.
Silvr, I've used whoopis down to -34C with no issue.
