    Camping trip in NNY, 2/10-2/12

    Where: Polliwog Pond, at roughly N 44 20.380 W 074 21.030.
    When: Friday, February 10th @ noon, until Sunday, February 12 @ noon
    What: A winter camping trip in the Adirondack Park in upstate NY

    This will be our 5th year doing this trip. It can be very cold and very snowy, so don't underestimate the power of the winter cold in the ADKs.

    The coordinates bring you to a car camping basecamp when everyone will stay the first night; some people will snowshoe out to a remote site for the second night.

    It's a great time/way to test gear, hang in the cold, explore the ADKs, meet like-minded crazies, visit the ice-castle in nearby Saranac Lake, maybe watch a zombie movie in the cold, lay out on a pond and watch the stars overhead, etc.

    If you have questions about this trip and/or would like to come, please reply in this thread.

    I might be up for that! My new Zeppelin is rated only to 20 degrees though, maybe a bit more as it has a couple of ounces of overstuffing. Would I be warm enough? I have a poncho liner as well with some shock cord through the ends plus plenty of thermal layers to wear.

    It was a great time!

    It was a super trip with cold sleeping and no fatalities for all...5 of us slept in hammocks on this trip, it was about 9 below this morning, and my hammock setup worked incredibly well!
