    The hang will be at Sturgen Lake, MN at Camp Miller. There is 330 acres of prime Boreal forest. So the harvest of fire wood on site is no problem.
    There are x-country ski-trails, lake for ice fishing. It also borders General CC Andrews State Forest that covers over 7,500 acres with 40 miles + trails.

    The temps will be from 20F up to -35F.More then likely -15 to -30F .Camp will 1/2 mile + from parking. This will be a little thinner of the widge hang then last time with no warm tent or backup. Unless you have slept in the snow bank before and liked it this may not be the hang for you.If you do not have the gear and skills for those temps this may not be the hang for you.

    But if you don't mind a little frost bite. A little suffering thats good for the soul. A whole lot of challange and great comradere around the stew pot hung over a northern fire. It may be just the outing for you.

    I'm in. My fiance has decided not to go once she read the -30F and no backup/warm tent.

    Will we still have the parachute shelter?

    This would probably be "up north" in Minnesota, though NOT NECESSARILY on the Superior Hiking Trail. In the interest of encouraging participation from all without getting into gear checks or experience, I envision a shortish (3-5 mile) walk-in to a hang site. There will likely be snow (think snowshoes) and seriously cold temperatures. Lows could be sub-zero (F.)

    The actual hang site selection would depend partly on who wants to go and how many there are. I'm willing to do some research to line up a site. If there are "out-of-towners" whose travel would dictate an overnight spot in the Twin Cities on their way to-and-fro, I have floor space aplenty.

    So, this is a very early trial balloon to test interest. If you want to try your gear in winter conditions...or acquire (make or buy) winter gear to extend your hammock kit inventory...get cracking! Clear the calendar!

    Safety Disclaimer: In serious cold weather, you can experience risk of injury or extreme discomfort if you aren't prepared for it. You should NOT contemplate coming along unless you've tested your gear in similar conditions whether in a backyard or a local park. This is not the time to inaugurate stuff you've never used!
    would be better for me the weekend of the 13-15th. I will be 50 years old.

    I would be free during the first week of January but am hosting a Wisconsin winter hang the 13th-15th of January in the Nicolet National Forest in Northern Wisconsin. The weekend of the 19-21st I will be hanging way up in the Porcupine Mountains.

    You who are interested in a 2012 Frozen Butt Hang need a new thread. This one is about LAST January!

    It's not to arrive safely at the grave in a well preserved body,
    But rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting,
    Woo Hoo!....What a Ride!
