Combine all that with my newbishness and that I have my 14 year old son this weekend (and he has even less cold weather gear than I do - I blame his mother) just makes it all seem insurmountable.

    Come spring/summer/fall though, and I'm all over it, and hopefully I'll be able to use that time to build my winter gear supply and join everyone for one or two of these next year.
    Hi Werespaz,
    I could probably outfit you both with winter clothing.
    I don't have any spare under quilts for an overnite.

    You two could come up Saturday morning and day hike the area with us.
    You've seen the picts It's even better than that.

    I'm not exactly sure when we will break camp at the campground and start hiking up to the overlook to find camp #2 but it won't be too early.
    Food is driving up Sat morning.

    O&B

    Looking forward to the report.
    Oh man, I'm sorry trailryder I should have PM'd you an invite.
    I sure will from now on.
    I try to get out and hang in the snow 2-3 times a month.
    It's my favorite time to camp and hang.
    I don't do a lot of long distance hiking though. Blizzard can hit without notice.
    Mostly find a super basecamp with an awesome view 1-3 miles from the car
    and day hike with my snowshoes, GPS, and camera.

    edit: It is only Tuesday, buy a few groceries, toss a few warm things in the backpack, gas up the truck.
    If you arrived a day early or want to stay a day longer I have a spare bedroom and we could drive up together.
    Just something to think about. We'd love to have you join us.

    SUV is packed heading out about 10AM Friday.

    The weather forecast has changed a bit.
    Snow on Friday evening and low of 16F predicted.
    Should be a good test for my new WL full 20 degree UQ.

    Thanks for the invite Bob. I had a nagging feeling a while back that I should buy some snow shoes/Yaktrax, but I didn't.

    Unfortunately, Wenedsday I discovered why the drains in my home have kept backing up. My sewer line is collapsed. It's that Orangeberg crap. Today I had to contract for replacement at the tune of $2200, Jack Hammer up a section of patio, remove some trees and fencing so the backhoe can get in.

    The last few days I've been relegated to washing out of a basin and peeing in the backyard. Hell, I MIGHT as WELL be camping! lol

    Hopefully I'll be back in business by Monday or Tuesday of next week. Y'all have fun.
