    Some major planning has already been done and I'm 99.9% sure a site has been secured. Waiting on Fourdog for the date, but most likely will be in January, so keep your calender open. That's the story I'm sticking to.

    Hey guys I will be making a thread about this hopefully pretty soon. The plan is for sometime in January, and the location will be at Camp Miller north of the Twin Cities. So stay tuned for more information.

    Cool! I'm glad I brought it up.

    My fiance wants to come to this one, if I can get her equipped well enough in time. I think we really just need to get her insulated pants and overboots...and buy or borrow some snowshoes. The rest she's pretty well setup.

    In the conditions that are likely, it's not just about having the right gear, as I am sure you know.

    If we can make it, Thing1 will accompany me. She has about three years experience hanging and hiking in snow above 4,000' with temps down to zeroF. She and I will be using traditional gear: wool, mukluks and anoraks on ourselves, and Molly Mac Gear canvas Hamaraks on our hammocks!

    Calling all Old Dogs, Gray Hairs, Sourdoughs & those with frozen brain cells to the 2nd MN Frozen Butt Hang to be held the 20,21 & 22 Jan 2012

    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.
