Ill Be on Boundary on Tuesday May 5!
But definitely going light - my base weight right now ( with pack ) is just over 12 lbs - there's a few more things I need to add ( camera / gps / batteries / hatchet). But...
There should be a trip report after - I'm gonna use my daughters go pro - I know my solar charger can keep my phone going - just testing this week if I can keep my phone and a go pro charged.
I already got my Killarney trip May 4 - Wont be able to make it to Algonquin as well.
Hopefully I'll have some sort of trip report after - May is gong to arrive very fast this year.
I used Jeffs map for time estimates. The times I've been before ( just in and out trips ) I was really close to his posted times.
Day 1 - Arrive 10:00 - Trail Head 11:00AM
Heading to La Cloche Silhouette on May 4 2015 to do the entire loop in 4 days!
The plan is about 20 KM per day including Silver Peak
I've done sections of this trail before so I know what I'm...
fellow Ontarian !
Enjoy the forum and hanging
I made it up Saturday morning - after a late night of work and a few hours sleep I ventured up to Kawartha Highlands - the drive took a little more than 2 ½ hours. When I arrived at the parking...
Ggreaves - Im gonna aim for parking lot on Saturday am 9:30
Only thing I'm DJing Friday and get home about 3:15 and will have to leave my house at 6:30 [emoji22].
So just curious about booking our permits
They can be booked online however I'm just worried if I book myself for sucker Lake site 125.
Will that reserve the site for me so no one else can book?
Is anyone staying Sunday night ?
I'm coming Saturday - Sunday but am off Monday -
Also perhaps those coming Saturday can pick a place / time to meet
I'm coming from the north...
I'm coming in Saturday morning as well
Chard - just to add to roll call - looks like Liam wants to make it out with me
Just over 2 weeks away !!!
Just did s scout camp over the weekend -16°c. Still didn't beat out low ....
Dark rum works as well :)
Ill bring my hot tent as well - only room for 5/6 but it's somewhere to warmup if someone gets a chill.
I doubt there will be a shortage of axes / saws - I know I'll have a saw and an axe or 2 :)...
I like it because of the challenge.
In summer it's easy - grab some stuff and go.
In winter you need to plan a little more since there's less room for error. But when your preparation come...
I also booked off the weekend of the 20th
So I'm definitely in :)
As mentioned I can bring my hot tent as a warming area. it's not huge but at 10x10 we can fit a few chairs around the stove.
I was up Friday to test out the hot tent I made ( yes I slept on the ground )
Had a great night seeing some familiar faces and meeting a few new ones
Hot tent worked very well but I'm gonna...
I'll bring the hot tent - it's actually really easy to setup :)
I might even sleep in It !!!!!
I know my hammock setup is good for -27°c
So this might be a good time to test an alternate...
So is anyone going Friday afternoon / night ?
my weekend is weird and I was going friday then leaving saturday to work and come back around 8:00PM and stay till sunday ( possible - I might be...
I like the views
Even with rain it looks like you had a good trip
I'm possible for the 20th but not the 27th
I'm good for whatever location :)
I've marked my calendar - hopefully work doesn't prevent me from attending
The trail was packed ( you technically didn't need snowshoes )
Off trail wasn't too bad about a foot to foot and a half deep but easy to dig down to the ground to set up the tent and stove ...
Liam and I got out for a night in Algonquin park for the winter solstice ( and new moon)
This trip I made a hot tent to test out. The plan - use the hot tent as a community shelter for the morning...
Hot tent is DONE!!
It's 8' in the Center and 10.5' square pyramid
Just burning in the stove and a test setup then she goes for her maiden voyage tomorrow :D
Weather is calling...
Looking like -12°C and sunny !!
So looking forward to this weekend -
Then the valens hang in a few weeks :D
Where I camp I generally know I'll be in a hammock
However when I have gone on a few trips where I knew that there might not be anywhere to hang - I bring a ground setup as well
Usually this is a...
Yes it's a Sunday night ( school is out!)
Might stay for 2 nights - weather is looking pretty good
Just trying to finish making my hot tent - if done we are testing it out :)
Looks like I'll be making it with Liam :)
Only thing is I have to leave Saturday for a few events then come back around 8pm to enjoy the campfire and stars
I can bring some wood for the...
Haven't decided a final spot yet
But Liam ( he's 13) said he wants to hike about 4 km in.
It will probably be a trail off of 60 near the west gate we ventured the highland trail in the summer...
Liam and I are heading up to Algonquin for the night on December 21!
Winter solstice and new moon - hopefully some good stargazing that night
Been working on a hot tent ( just for a warming...
I've marked my calendar and I'm hoping to make it out
Friday is more of a possibility
Being my slow season it's difficult to book off a weekend - hopefully I'll make it ...
Got a few days off ( Monday Nov 3-Nov 5)
Thinking of making an outing to silver peak in Killarny :)
Just wondering if any of the shift guys or others have a few days - you are welcome to join...
amazing weather and awesome colours
Looks like was a GREAT weekend out
- Looking forward to read Chards trip report when it gets posted -
Bad news ...
I booked events for myself Friday night and Saturday morning :(
Unfortunately I'm not gonna be making this one
Hopefully I'll get out soon
There's a good possibility I'll be able to make it friday night :D I'm working in Whitby Saturday so I'm just working out the details and such.
If I do make it I'll be solo in a kayak
I'm booked Thursday night and Saturday night so no chance I can make this one :(
We need to organize a hang that is Monday - Wednesday for the weekend workers and shift guys
Hey Chard - Unvote me for May 16-19 - I won't be able to make the canoe trip :(
I am now going with the family to George lake in Killarney :D
My wife and daughter want to camp -...
Lofty & Liam
1 - no
2 - yes
3 - no
What about 2 hangs?
Can't make it now :(
You guys have a good weekend
See you at the May canoe hang :)
I too am thinking of a moonlight stroll.
Chard/ Ggreaves. if I go i won't be there till about 8 Friday night
Perhaps there's a few of us to hike in at that time
If I go Friday I won't be there til later - problally 8 pm
Although I believe it's almost a full moon so an overcast moonlight hike in May be nice
I'll keep you posted if I'll venture up or not
Chard -just looking
That's Thursday (15) to Sunday (18)
Don't we want Friday (16) to Monday (19) ?
Either way Liam and I will be there that weekend !
Can we make the weekend of May 15-18 (Victoria Day ) the official weekend for the hang :)
Graven hurst could work for me Friday
I will be a little late getting up but I can headlamp in as long as there's a trail or some coordinates to GPS me
What about valens for March 14/15/16 ?
I can come Friday night
Liam and I are in for May 15-18 - :D
I have a canoe - but it's HEAVY. So I will have to double carry on portages
Mother's Day weekend is definitely out for me :(
May 29-June 1 - I'm already...

It's the end of February and off to algonquin park I go with my friend Rob
The last 3 winter camps I've done I have used a Pulk - this time I wanted to go lighter and just use my G4 pack. ...
