    Considering the snow depth in the area of 20+ inches we will be fine with snow for water. It is not that big of a deal to carry a bit extra to assure there is enough

    The current site has a great hang area with lots of hang spots for over 20
    Trail in is reasonably level, usually packed base for most of the way
    Good area to set up the canopy

    Fire wood is available, but we will need to range out a bit wider for 3 days good burning

    If Madhob gets a look at the options in the close area we should be fine.

    I know there are other areas around, but a hang site reasonably protected from wind, with enough trees so we don't have to disperse far apart, and on a lake or water, is a bit hard to find.

    I would say start looking for next season, and if a perfect spot is found, with an on site inspection, we can do it.
    Now we are strapped for time before next Wed to get a "on site inspection" of any place, if no one has been there before.

    Some of the other spots I know near Finland, near the SHT, are quite rough to get to with a pulk, have most everything, but enough trees to hang a group, and have been picked of firewood.

    If someone allready knows a perfect spot, and has been there to confirm it I'm in

    here is a birds-eye view of the parking lot that TonyYarusso was suggesting. It looks as if it would easily hold enough vehicles. All someone needs to do is call the DNR and ask about plowing. I might be willing to head up there to scope it out.... if people are interested.

    I just looked a GE also. There is a cut over area on the east side of the lake. The cedars might be south of that.

    It really needs to have a eyeball on it before any changes are made.
    Cedar firewood is not very attractive, even less than pine in my list

    I just looked at the weather, keeps looking like it will be warmer and warmer. 20-30 during the day and 0-10 at night. Maybe we will get some below 0 temps. Just figured I would share. Still a week out so anything could happen.

    Personally, I would think that not changing the location at the last second is the better option. There may be better spots out there, but showing up and realizing it won't work for 20 people would really suck.

    Plus, it's really fun telling everyone I'm going to Finland.

    +1 agreed too late to confirm.

    Can we get coordinates for last year's hang?
