Wow! What a wonderful weekend
It was the first TRUE winter camp for me and my son Liam (he's 11)
We saw Bubba at the west gate then again at the trail head.
Liam was playing in the huge snow pile in the parking lot
I loaded the sled and off we went
the trail was nicely packed - thanks to those who ventured out Friday
Walking Across Mizzy Lake
Nice View of Algonquin
After about 3KM of walking we came to the site.
Got to meet everyone there - enjoyed a hot chocolate and then set up camp.
Liam is in the hennessey under the camo tarp
I am in a blackbird under a maccat
Thanks to Jayson for the use of a 0º phoenix I ended up using on Liam
I had 2x20º a phoenix and a phincubator under me
Enjoyed a nice evening by the fire
Finally head to hammocks around 11:00 -
Liam woke up at 1:30 - because he was TOO hot
so I helped him remove a layer and all was good
Morning came and I tell you - frozen Sorels are NOT fun - But they warmed up after about an hour.
I put Liam to work cutting down a tree and chopping wood - That warmed him up nicely.
morning temp -27ºC ( the other thermometer said -27.5ºC - so Im using that one for my temp ! )
After a little breakfast we got packed up and headed out .
After a cold night and a memorable experience I can't wait to get out and winter camp again
