I'll take it
I'll take it. pm sent.
Don't forget to accessorize your new t-shirt...
I can catch you on my way back out of town on Monday. Are you around?
I'll take it sturgeon. On my way to TO right now. pm me your address or a meeting place (I'll be there around 4:30) and I'll come get it.
Guys, I can't make it this weekend if that's when we were planning to go.
great idea but i'm camping locally this weekend. enjoy!
I'm in. Paddling down in Costa Rica has me itching to get out again.
I was up there today to go for a snowshoe around the lake. They drop the water level about 20 feet in the winter. It looks very strange standing offshore and looking way up to where your campsite...
Please post pictures of your wife. Maybe we can work something out.
My plan in getting a sleep study was to get one of these dental appliances. Once the doc saw my AHI (117 - I stop breathing twice a minute) he said I had to have the machine. And here in Ontario,...
Have you had a sleep study? What was your AHI? My doctor told me that dental appliances are only an option for very mild sleep apnea. Have you had a sleep study done with the appliance? Did it...
Would you mind PMing me that info too? I'll sign a non-disclosure.
I never bother using the ramp feature on my respironics but perhaps it would mitigate the start up surge. Just as an experiment, give that a try. Also, try dialing the pressure down to see if that...
kid learns pretty quick
scrolled off... waiting for chard's trip report ;^}
Please let us know how it works. At $130, it's less than half what I paid for a similar capacity cpap battery.
Is your machine unlocked? Can you change the pressure yourself? If so, and you can do a data dump to analyze the results, you might want to experiment with lower pressures for times when you're in...
From your link, I use the BPS C100 battery pack. It weighs just a pound and gives me 2.5 nights at 10.5 pressure on my machine. For next year, I'm looking at getting a lightweight machine (one of...
we're going to be there probably around 9:30am. this should be fun.
I guess I can just copy down the number the rest of you have on your cars... duh
so, does anyone have a permit number I can write on a paper permit for those coming in Saturday
just book any site on sucker lake. We can camp where we want as long as we're at least 30m from a real campsite and the shore. Nobody will be enforcing which people should be on which sites because...
Rofo, is the over land route packed down by snowmobiles?
The first parking lot you get to is for the overland route. When you get to the parking lot, you actually need to head up the road a...
Jimmay and I are coming in Saturday morning. We might be bringing another guy along too.
The water does indeed run down the snakeskins, but below the suspension. The snakeskins I use are made of silnylon not mesh, so they completely cover the suspension from the rain all the way to the...
In Canada, you can buy Hennessy Hammocks from MEC, or straight from Hennessy online. No duty - they're in BC. I live close to the border so I often have stuff shipped to a "Kinek" point (look them...
I use snakeskins on my hammock. I stretch them all the way back from the tree and let the wide open end hang just inside the tarp. No water on your suspension means no water on your hammock. I've...
For all you hot tent guys, here's an idea for your wood stove in the off season...
Hot tub tug boat
if we are on the south shore and take the snowmobile trail, probably 2.5 (with a few hills). over the lake and up one portage it's probably more like 5. If we're on the north shore, it's about 4 km...
To paraphrase Chief Brody... "We're gonna need a bigger park"
Here's one I made from a Lowes canvas drop sheet. It weighs about 4 lbs which I don't care about when pulking. Since this picture, I've added a ridgeline to keep it a little higher up and not...
EGL Pride Hang
I'm coming from the east but if you could get to Port Hope I could get you at the train / bus station before heading north. There might be some others more convenient to you though.
I think if we keep an eye out on the snowmobile trails in the area, (especially kawartha lakes), we'll know when the ice is ok.
That's is isobutane with a little propane mixed in. And you're running in liquid feed mode. I thought you might be running it from one of those one pound propane cylinders
I think I may have seen some of your videos before. Did you do a hang at Mont St. Hillaire and record it? One other question: How did you rig up the Kovea Spider for pure propane?
well, you're smiling so that's good. It would be interesting to see how you rigged that bag up for a pod. congratulations on getting out there in the cold.
raise your foot end. don't be shy, you should see a visible slope on the ridgeline toward the head. No more calf ridge problems - promise!
I second the sentiment on the hot tent. Last year I went out at -20C. There were 2 of us in hammocks and 2 in a hot tent. But instead of hanging around the firepit, we all squeezed our chairs into...
There are also bags that work really well as pods if you're worried about the extra space on top. I have a Wiggy's superlight "Freedom Shelter" bag and it's a 0F synthetic. For a down option, the...
just got to Toronto (lousy drive). I will come first thing in the morning. sleep warm.
we got a bunch of snow in Kingston too. I'll see you guys tonight / tomorrow - Chard, you need a ride?
always plenty of room. Are you bringing your new "hammock hot tent" from smokehouse?
don't forget your bathing suit. there's a nice beach.
For sucker lake where we camped last year....
Sucker Lake - Anstruther Twp. Only one line may be used when angling
through the ice.
Lake trout - none between 40-55 cm
I'm coming in Friday night. I'd love to see the hot tent.
I remember when we booked the park over the phone last year, they asked what colour our canoe was. That question just might make sense this season.
