    Eastern Great Lakes 2011 Year End Soiree

    With three “Seasonal” Group Hangs and many more “one/two” nighters, 2011 has been a great year for Hammock Camping in Southern Ontario! Here are some of the adventures we’ve shared:

    Eastern Great Lakes Hang - Winter 2011 - Trip Report
    Eastern Great Lakes Hang - Spring 2011 - Canoeing into Algonquin Trip Report
    Eastern Great Lakes Hang Trip Report- Fall 2011 -Sunny with a Chance of Flurries

    Moon Rising Over The Bridge Hang
    Ontario 2nd Chance Fall Hang - Valens Conservation Area
    Loons in the Echo
    Overnight Hang on Long Lake

    Before plunging into the holiday chaos known as “December”, we’re going out for one last night to raise our “Environmentally friendly” alcohol containers (not the fuel, the other one!) in a toast to 2011 and the trees that support our way of life. Please join us for the night or drop in for a visit, all are most welcome but please let us know if you're staying overnight ASAP!


    Date: November 26th to 27th, 2011
    Where: Rattlesnake Point Conservation Area - Site #17


    Couple more Rattlesnake Shots

    Most of the facilities within the park are closed for the year but washrooms, running water and Firewood will be made available!

    Address: 7200 Appleby Line, Milton, ON L9T 2Y1

    Driving Directions:
    • From Hwy 401, take Hwy 25 south to Steeles Avenue, head west on Steeles to Appleby Line, drive south on Appleby Line for 3 km
    • From Q.E.W, take Appleby Line north; 1 km north of Derry Road on top of the escarpment
    • GPS Coordinates: 43.471 -79.913

    I'm scheduled to work but I'm going to see if I can make a switch. I'll post if I can go ASAP.

    Count me in and I will be sporting my new Karo Baffle Underquilt too boot. Odd Duck has also been making noises as to trying her first winterish hang.

    Ill keep working on her.

    Count me in for staying the night. I was hoping to get out once more this month to do some tweaking to my winter setup.

    Let's hope that some of the local area hangers that haven't been out for a group hang can attend this one. It is always great to meet new people.

    Cheers

    Too far away for me

    I did get a good hang at Bon Echo this fall though. Great walk-in / paddle-in site.

    I'm in.

    I as well will be quilt building, perhaps with one or two members of the Odd Duck team.

    Based on the awesome results of Ryvr's underquilt, I should be quite warm. I may or may not be pimping a lazy Ryvr bridge.

    I now own my own thread injector, time to lean some new skillz.

    Oh Yeah!!

    Count me in...

    One word... BBQ

    If any Hanger's south of the border are interested, Rattlesnake point is only 90 minutes from Buffalo. It'd be great to meet some of you.

    No heated washrooms at Rattlesnake, your “Canvas Condo” might become prime real estate if it gets colder than expected! How did you answer the “Two People Sleeping In One Hammock” poll??

    What’s your take on the Chrysalis, are you enjoying it?? Bon Echo is a great park; we’ll be returning at least once next year, which lake were you on?

    BBQ for sure, the Tripod is all ready to go!!! I’m not big on “group meals” but I will be bring a plethora of Steak and Shrimp kabobs.
