Well I contacted the guys from Bushcraft and it looks like they're going full speed ahead . The northern boys feel rain is very unlikely .
I am still planning on being there. Unless everyone else bails out
It most always rains at MI hangs, so it is just keeping the tradition.
I have a 12X16 heavy poly tarp that we can rig up as a rain cover and have a fire at the edge.
It can be just as much fun as any other camp out
I seldom put full faith in the weather predictions, only in my weather rock
BCUSA guys are still committed so I am too . TZ I appreciate your thoughts . If worse came to worse we could retreat to a position a little closer to the trucks .
Straight up rain sucks at 35°, but testing gear in freezing rain could be fun! Just set up in proch mode and hang out during the rain Saturday.
Pack a little more wool I guess . At least be warm while wet .
I'll admit I got pretty discouraged last night for some reason...pack felt a lot heavier than usual, didn't ride well, ran out of room. Not sure what was going on. The larger Jetboil Sumo cup I packed for melting snow really eats up space.
Will repack tonight and see what happens, maybe even try my smaller pack. Also might need to use a compression sack for my 15° bag...it's very light but bulky as hell.
