    Hey Brian

    PM me the date and campsite number and I may show up for a visit..... as I am only 15 min from Valens.
    I do not wish to be disturbed - but I can't help it!

    Should we start discussing carpooling and vehicle limits per site now?

    I'm in Northern Toronto and have no problems hopping in a car with internet strangers. Or I can take my motorcycle down by myself.

    Carpooling for those that can do it would be a good idea. From the Valens Rules and Regulations on vehicles.

    Additional vehicles must be registered at the gate. A maximum of two vehicles allowed on site.
    I plan on heading to Valens on the Friday, early afternoon. I will be driving through Toronto via the 401 W and would be willing to pick 1 person up along the way.

    So for those that plan on attending this hang and want to carpool, please post when you plan on heading to Valens and that you can take passengers or are willing to ride with someone else.

    Cheers

    Brian

    I don't own a car and my motorcycle would not be very efficient use of our vehicle limit (or even a pleasent ride if the weather is nasty), but I'll wait untill everyone else chimes in before I decide. Might even be able convince the missus to drop-off/pick-up if it comes to it.

    I live right off the 401 in the Sheppard/Leslie area. I suppose if needed I could take a pillion with minimalist gear between the two of us. Both of our gear would need to fit in a backpack and tankbag though, and they would need to be comfortable on the back of a bike at highway speeds.

    Greetings

    I sent a PM to everyone whose expressed interested in attending this hang for at least 1 night with the site information. If anyone that said they were going to attend the hang and didn't get the site information, shoot me a PM and I will send it along.

    Also for any of those that have been to Valens before for a hang, you already know the site we will be getting so if you are planning on coming out, post a quick message here. Were are already up to 7 or so people that are coming out.

    Cheers

    Brian

    Greetings

    The weather forecast for this coming weekend hang at Valens conservation area is looking favourable at this moment. As of now I am still planning on heading out Friday at midday.

    This is also a quick bump to see if there are any more hangers in the area that haven't seen this thread and still want to come out.

    I will PM those that are planning on coming out my cell phone number in case there are any issues that arise once on site.

    See you all there

    Cheers

    Brian

    Well since nobody has piped up yet, I'll "claim" your carpool seat Brian if nobody has it via PM yet. I live right off the 401 at the Leslie exit.

    Brian, sent you a PM.

    I'm really looking to check out this hanging thing... I'd really like the opportunity to come by and check out everyone's gear if that's possible.

    I'm sad I can't make this one. Would have been nice to meet some new people. Have a good time everyone!
