    Ontario Second Chance Fall Hang - Valens Conservation Area

    Greetings

    Some of us couldn't/didn't attend the most recent Ontario Hang at Algonquin Park this past weekend.

    Now is your Second Chance, so to speak, to get out this fall and use your hammock gear. I know I have gear that I am testing both 3 season and winter.

    There are 2 possible dates for this hang weekend, and I've made this a poll, so pick your option.

    The hang will be at Valens Conservation Area (car camping). There are a limit of 6 people per site at this place so multiple sites may be needed depending on the number of people attending. The site we usually get is about 100m from a heated washroom with running water. So no issues there.

    I know I am going for 2 nights. Obviously just showing up for 1 night (Saturday) is a viable option too. For those that are able to car pool, it is advisable as there is also a limit to the number of vehicles per site.

    So who is in?

    Cheers

    Brian

    My weekends in the fall and early winter are filled with either work or other commitments. Unfortunately I cannot attend either. The way things are looking I may not be able to get out until the New Year.

    Bubba, we shall see you in January for the first winter hang of 2012. This should give you some time to get that winter quilt set on your Christmas list.

    Just a note. If you're not going to this hang, please refrain from voting in the poll for a date as it will skew the results. Also if you are going, please vote and put a quick reply in this thread indicating as much.

    Cheers

    Hey BrianWillan,

    Sorry you weren't able to join us on the Fall Hang. Although there was a gruelling portage and cld nights, it was a lot of fun.

    I won't likely get out on another Hang before our Winter Hang next year. I've got to build up a few more brownie points with the Missus. I might try to steal away for an overnight somewhere nearby, but only for an evening/night/morning. If I do, I'll pm the local usual suspects.

    Hey Chard

    I didn't really expect many of the Algonquin Fall hang crew to join in as it will be a short notice trip for them. Even though it is currently listed a 2 night hang, if you can only pop out for 1 night, come out late Saturday afternoon and stay the night. As you know, the more the merrier at a group hang.

    Cheers

    Brian

    Though the poll seems to show otherwise, if it's the 1st weekend I'd be up for at least one night.

    We shall see what the poll shows. I think once Sunday evening rolls around we should have a decent idea of how many people are interested in going. At the moment there is one result in the poll that is from a member in the USA, which I doubt will show up. So in reality the results are 1 vote for each option.

    Cheers

    That's great, Distortedaxis. One night out is much better than nothing.

    Things to keep in mind is that there is no grill/grate for the fire pit.

    Cheers

    Thanks for the invitation Brian. Weekend of the 14th is definitely out for me. Hoping to free up Sat. 22nd, but won't vote until it's firm.

    Cheers!
