    I'm really hoping I can make it out. Sounding better and better. If I get the green light, hopefully you guys won't head in too deep.

    Looking at Google maps, this area appears to be a decent spot. Its on the NW part of the lake and its tucked in at the base of a SE facing hill. It also appears easy to get to since its just east of an old railroadbed that the trail meets up with. The roadbed might be a good spot to veer off the trail. It would make it easier finding you guys.

    Sorry gang it's official. Next stop MRI. When I asked about snowshoeing this weekend I got the "are you serious" look.

    I'll keep watching this thread in envy. Have yourselves a fantastic time and be safe. Bring back lots of pictures.

    Cheers,

    Chard

    I'll have to be on the IR list with Chard. Doc looked over MRI results today - next stop orthopedic consult. I'm probably stuck with car camping for the next while.

    Have fun guys.

    Here is a picture I took of the area from my Basemap program using Ibycus 3.2 Topo.

    *Note, My Ontario Trails GPS map and my Algonquin Park map shows that the Mizzy lake trail is an ~11 km loop from 60 up to West Rose Lake and Wolf Howl Pond (Ibycus 3.2 doesn't show that, for some reason the east side is cut off...I'm downloading 4.0 now).

    I take it parking is at the Mizzy Lake Trail head on the north side (Arrowhon Rd) or Smoke Lake parking lot across the road on the south side?

    I'd like to meet up with the Friday Morning people, if possible. I'll be staying until late Sunday Afternoon...if all goes well

    WEATHER: Mild weekend?
    Friday
    Cloudy with 70 percent chance of flurries. Low minus 7. High minus 2.
    Saturday
    Cloudy with 30 percent chance of flurries. Low minus 13. High minus 4.
    Sunday
    A mix of sun and cloud. Low minus 16. High minus 7.
    Monday
    A mix of sun and cloud. Low minus 14. High minus 4.

    If it's permissible, I'd like to drop by and meet some of you on Friday or Saturday after you're all setup and settled in.

    I recently purchased a used Hennessy (without suspension system), made my own tree straps and whoopie sling suspension, and spent my first night in a hammock last night in my bedroom (my wife's out of town so I took advantage of that to put in some wall anchors. ). Because I don't own any of the gear for winter hammocking, I can't camp overnight, but I'd welcome an opportunity to meet some of you veteran hangers and pick up some pointers.

    You are more than welcome to stop by. I don't think anyone will be heading on the trail much earlier than 11:00am on Friday. Saturday may be a better day to visit since it would give you more time to hike in and out. Looking forward to meeting you.
