I feel ya, man.
Sorry to confirm that neither me nor my underquilt will be able to make it this year. I really hope I don't need to make too many more cancellations this year! :-(
It turns out I have a family thing that weekend, so I'll probably have to bow out this year. :-(
And maybe people with neither tent nor hammock.
I need to make sure this doesn't conflict with the Ludington fall hang. As long as there's no conflict, I'm in.
Cool. Jan 21-24? Same place as last time? I'm not a member of the other forum, so I'll rely on all the important info coming from here.
Awesome sunset pics, Jeff!
Sorry guys, BUSY BUSY BUSY!!! Yes, I'm coming, but too busy to read 17 pages of comments. Yikes!! So I'm planning on showing up Friday night, unknown whether Stacie will be able to make it or not....
Nice job, Kevin, thanks for making that. Love your blue and black raccoon logo!
Awesome video Red! You had me laughing out loud at the end. Thanks!
Very nice use of music throughout, nice fadeins and outs, never overpowering, very professional looking.
Hi! Maybe late to the party, but my two cents: I have a 0 degree extra long overstuffed snow beast as I like to call it. In the house, it's just fine. I'm in your boat, not wanting to waste...
Uploading now. Will take some time. 32 files. link: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B-isTm9qlTpGUU9YblRzckN3a2c&usp=sharing
Hey Stone, I can't make a folder for my pics in your share, says it's read-only.
Today is going to be a work-my-***-off kind of day, but I'll try to get my pics uploaded tonight. That's my goal, anyway. I always look forward to Stone's videos.
This might be smart, having one pit dedicated for people serious about preparing their meals, without having to worry about drunkards knocking their jalapenos off the 2x4 or having their food smell...
Hey Michael! I hope you're still coming over, but just to give you fair warning, I think my chili might have enough garlic to turn Nosferatu to dust. Say hi to the Dahleys for me!
Howdy! Last year, we all huddled around one fire pit. But we had so many people that we had to actually pay for four campsites. So yes there will be plenty of other fire pits you can use if...
I'd recommend a snowmobile. Of course, I don't have one, so the Lincoln Town Car it is. Not the best in snow.
A friend of mine didn't have the passport and went to a place that required it. The "ticket" he got was just a bill for the passport, the sticker for which he received after paying the bill. ...
Please reassure me that the parking lot and road to it will be plowed.
Absolutely. I've given up many jobs to prepare for this party!

Reporting from Battle Creek, I have 12-15". Long term forecast cold, melting not expected any time soon. It may be a brisk 4 degrees as I head out to Ludington Friday morning, but clear driving. ...
Ooo, eggs, that reminds me, hot sauce! Must remember to bring the hot sauce. I'll have a variety for people's different preferences.
You don't need massive amounts to feed an army when there will be a whole army of us feeding each other. Friday is lunch at the bar and pizza for dinner, and Sunday I think is breakfast in town, so...
I'm targeting noon also, remembering bad roads last year. Hopefully the parking lot at the campground is plowed. Hey Stone, how much snow you got there now?
Cool! I'll try to chase the coons away for you.
Hey Stone, how does the $$ work for the heated ladies cabin? I mean, the heated cabin for the ladies?
Oh just bring an electric blanket for your hammock. You won't be the first! ;-)
I'll be bringing some chili, extension cords, and power strips. With as many of us as there will be, we'll be paying for several campsites, so we should be able to use the power from all of them. ...
(That's three thousand for those that don't understand Roman numerals)
Cool, hope to see you!
Google says about 2.5 hrs, but last year weather was crappy and the roads were bad.
Probably around 9ish. Looking to carpool?
meeting for lunch at James Street Pub. Then drinking and eating pizza. also, much ********ting.
I try to make sure my toes are warm before I go to bed. Once that's done, the rest of me is warm and sleeping well. Happy feet! :-)
Thanks, yes, very handy.
Yep, sorry, I packed up early in the morning, not knowing when anyone else was planning on heading out, and not wanting to be last due to my automobile situation. Turns out, I was able to get back...
Okay, FINALLY!, here are my pics:
No, I brought mine just in case, but I left them in the car. There was enough snow that you could have used them if you wanted to, but not enough for them to be of any benefit.
Okay, I've also created a shared google drive, and uploaded my pics there. My intention is that this drive is a public place where everyone can upload their pics from this trip. Just make a new...
I've found that my method works satisfactorily: Bringing my bag (or quilt) just up to my chin, and then having my jacket behind/above my head and bringing the tail of it over my face, leaving a...
Hey guys, I was great camping with you all!
I've started a new thread for the trip report here: ...
Here shall be the trip report thread for this outing. Pictures will follow.
Some of the guys got there a day before me. My drive up was treacherous at first, but the roads improved north of...
roads are very bad. Keep the wheels between the ditches. I haven't even made it to Lansing.
Sorry guys, just NOW heading out! Hope to be there before dark, MAYBE!
Me too. Everything I plan on bringing to camp will be in my pack, but I'm loading the car up with all kinds of stuff I don't plan on needing.
So, no TZ Brown, no Vulture, no Tazer, no Mark, who...
Except that in Fort Wayne, Battle Creek, and Grayling, the wind is all from the southwest, so it looks more like you southern boys are filling up that trough from down there, and it's moving north.
What the hell??? The further north you go, the warmer it gets??? That doesn't make any sense. Must be that global warming. Heat rises to the north I guess.
I'm still packing, and it's one cold em-effer this morning! It's in the negatives down here.
