    It is inspiring to see the number of people that are going to be coming out to Valens to do some cold weather hanging. It may be a first that a 3rd site will be needed.

    Cheers

    I have a couple of people from the Hamilton/Burlington area from wintertrekking.com that are going. One is getting his own site and the other is prepared to get a site if he can't fit in anywhere else.

    The staff at Valens may be shocked at the number of people staying the night for the first weekend over 2012. Although they should be used to us hammock hanging people by now.

    Just over 1 week to go.

    Cheers

    Brian

    So I have spoken with the BOSS and we will be coming down for the night.
    Problem is we will have to sleep in a tent. Received an email with tracking number of our HH order and Canada Posts expected delivery date isnt till the 9th.

    But we will still make the trek in expectation of meeting some good folks and learning some valuable tricks to hanging!

    Oh and I will bring a trunk full of wood.

    Google says its a 7 1/2 hr ride up there for me. I was thrown off by the forecast temperatures but then realized it was in Celsius. Its tempting.
    Gotta find my passport and see if it didn't expire.

    Then down to Florida for the next weekend..............

    Hey Bubba

    I don't know about converting my wintertrekking.com friends, but I am sure they will get the gear tour and the opportunity to try out some hammocks. So it is possible.

    Cheers

    Brian
