    Jinx your saying 15cm like its a bad thing! Now I'm going to be disappointed If we dont get snow. Keep in mind Winter is my prefered season!

    [o]TTeR, if I would have started wishing for snow, then the likelihood of it happening would be greatly diminished. Winter is my preferred season too, since I am really prepared for it this season. So firmly in the area of Murphy's Law and reverse psychology, wishing for the opposite of your desired outcome generally makes it happen. (I think, err hope)

    So in that vain, I will still pack my 3 season tarp.

    Cheers

    I'm so confident that we're going to have beautiful, hot temperatures that I'm not even going to bring an underquilt, a top quilt or heck, even a tarp!!! There's no way we'll get anything like cold weather, rain or, banish the thought, snow.. Absurd!!!

    Come on guys, this is Canada in late November!!!! It'll never happen!!!! That should do it

    P.S.: X-Ney on the X-Ney. That should confuse the weather gods

    Geez, Chard, I split a gut laughing at that. Indeed, taunting the weather gods like that should bring on the first dumping of snow and cold temperatures for the winter season.

    The current forecast looks like we could wake up to rain showers at 5c. Tropical weather or not, I'm looking forward to trying out my new DIY hammock sock I finished this weekend.

    On a totally different topic, are we prepared for a deluge of vehicles? Do we have ample parking or is it time to coordinate car pools?

    Only 2 cars will fit on site but the lower parking lot is close by so we'll be fine. I have to call the park this afternoon, they need my email address to send my that printable copy of the permit. I will ask about the rules for parking.

    Why, why do you guys taunt me so, Im not trying to make your "winter" camping this nice but I will keep going till it is 24 degrees if I have to.
    You know every time I check the weather network it is up another degree. Keep taunting if you like .... its really working.
