    Any upstate New Yorkers want to do a winter hang?

    The last attempt in September was a wash

    Would anyone like to go up to the 'Dacks in a few weeks' time? I saw that second site at Moss Lake a month back, it was pretty nice although admittedly on a ridge.

    You NY's should have come to the EGL hangout! It was so close to you. It was great to meet our neighbor to the north and see how they do it.

    +1 on that, Crash. The Eastern Great Lakes group hangs are the stuff of legends. ;-)

    NFA, that sounds pretty good. How do you watch zombie movies out in the bush?

    Do you have a link for that? I can't find it.

    Edit: scratch that, I found it.

    Whew, that's some serious cold! Should I bring my board shorts?

    This is a car-camping trip (although some of us pack out to a more-remote campsite the second night). NFA has a small tv with built in dvd (VHS? I forget) and he runs it off an inverter hooked to his vehicle.

    This will be our fifth annual NNYWCT, the coldest so far I THINK was the first one at around -17F, although the possibilities are always there for -30 or colder...
