    Eastern Great Lakes Hang - Fall 2011 - Autumn in Algonquin

    Hey All!!!

    I can't believe it, but the prime fall colours at the end of September are only four months away!!!

    This is a call to anyone interested in joining some 'Slingers on a paddle into the piney woods of Ontario's Algonquin Park. Let's get this hang swinging!!!!

    Date: September 30th to October 2nd or 3rd, 2011
    Where: Algonquin Park Ontario

    (3 1/2 hours north of Toronto, 5 hours from Buffalo, 7 hours from Detroit, 8 hours from Sault Ste.Marie: Carpooling may be available)

    Jebus! Chard Your terrible! I'm likely not going to be able to call this one. I'd love to go but between Algonquin Spring Hang , Bon Echo, and My currently scheduled September week rong run (Algonquin Access point 1), I think I'm going to be out of days... Either that or i'm going to have to cancel my short week in June... BLAST!

    ok, did some quick math... With a few days cancelled here... and a little rearrangement of the schedule there... I think I'm in. Don't quote me on that till I talk to the new boss.

    +1 there Dan. Chard you are terrible. Summer hasn't even started yet and the fall hang planning has already begun.

    I usually house sit for my parents who go to Florida for a month around that time. I will see what I can work out. I better kick the physical training and nutrition into high gear. I found that 2 plus hour stretch from/to Tom Thomson and the Canoe Lake portage to be quite taxing.

    Cheers

    Brian

    Gentlemen, gentlemen..

    Your harsh words are most unjust, unwarranted and cut me to the quick...

    I was merely endeavouring to provide sufficient time for any and all interested persons to make such arrangements as they deem necessary to ensure that their calendars are free and that they are able to join us on what promises to be a most entertaining engagement.

    I'm in + wife and son, assuming 4-year-olds are still allowed. By then I will hopefully have finished executing my master plan and we will all be in hammocks.

    Oh Man Odd Duck and I will have to bow out of this one. We are tapped out of vacation days (unless of course something happens to my other trip into Algonquin earlier in September). Thanks for the offer and I am sure it will be another great hang.

    Don't forget the hot dogs, and if I have another fit of inspiration or delusional madness I will be sure to post the recipe for you all to try.

    Ryvr & Odd Duck.
    When you discard arrogance, complexity, and a few other things that get in the way, sooner or later you will discover that simple, childlike, and mysterious secret known to those of the Uncarved Block: Life is Fun.
