    Canada>Ontario->EGL->2019 > Valens, Nov 23rd 2019




    Hey gang,

    Just like last year, a bunch of us are going to head over to Valens for an overnighter after the 3rd Annual Winter Camping Symposium held that Saturday afternoon, November 23rd at the University of Waterloo.

    Hopefully we'll get our traditional site 134 or somewhere thereabouts and enjoy a hot fire, good food and maybe even a bit of gear swapping.

    For all those regulars, we'll see you there. For all of those new folks interested in coming by to enjoy some good times, everyone's welcome even if it's just for dinner.

    See you there!

    I'm going Friday night. If there are others, we could carpool to the Symposium. Whet Newdell is probably coming Saturday with a load of firewood.

    Tickets are sold out online.
    I've got 2 friends coming up from Pittsburgh on Friday. We have our tickets. An overnight in my backyard and then we'll head up to the symposium Saturday morning and then stay at Valens overnight.
    I don't think I'll be bringing my swap gear as the car might be a little packed.

    LOL! I was camping with the PA folk this past weekend and we were discussing our plan of action for butter tarts.

    Hiya all,

    If anyone's who's planning on coming out to Valens has a Smokehouse hot tent, I'd be much obliged if you brought it out so I can have a look at some of its features.

    Also, if anyone has a Bushbox LF from Bushcraft Essentials, I'd love to see one of those in action as well.

    So demanding!

    Cheers.
