    Prefer Valens.
    Bringing: my stuff plus firewood.

    Not 100% will all depend on how long we take getting home from Windsor. We are traveling with another couple so...
    check out is 11am so should in theory be to London and my car by 2pm and then carry on to Valens.

    Based on the early exit polls and 34% of eligible voters reporting in, we are able to project that the venue for the EGL Late Fall Hang will be at Valens. I repeat, we are able to project that the venue for the 2012 EGL Late Fall Hang be at the Valens Conservation Area.

    But seriously, we'll likely need to book 3 sites. If it's ok, maybe Dant8ro, [o]TTer and myself can take care of that end.

    Just a reminder, notwithstanding alternate personal arrangements, everyone's responsible for their own food, cooking, hammocking gear and well being. No chainsaw juggling this time please!!! Unless there's a hurricane, we'll have a fire going all evening so hot water shouldn't be a problem and BBQn's definitely an option. In fact, you'll likely have a vast array of amazing foods grilling over the coals.

    Not to be daunted, if the weather looks "moist", let's plan to bring a couple of extra tarps and ropes and we'll put up a pavillion. I'll even fire up my old two burner, white-gas coleman!!

    Finally, for those of you new to cool weather hammocking; if you feel the need to bring a tent as an emergency cold weather backup, don't be shy. I freely admit to bringing both my Hennessy and my solo tent on my first few hammocking canoe trips. We might tease you a little, but we'll be happy you came out.

    Only two weeks away... Looking forward to meeting a lot of new faces and seeing some old ones!!

    P.S. I know a couple of us are into DIY'ing and bushcraft skills. Maybe an impromptu whoopee splicing and/or charcloth, flint & steel fire-lighting session could be fun. Anything but Twister! If anyone has any ideas, please chime up.

    Years ago I saw a great lumberjack kettle boil contest down at Harbourfront in Toronto. Serveral teams of two guys were given a small log, an axe, a knife and some matches. It was a race to get a small can of soapy water boiling enough to have the suds spill over the top. A definite good time! We should make it an EGL tradition!

    To be fair, the first pitch was up to the task, it's just that I had been stupidly sitting in the splash zone. Ultimately, we had half a dozen guys with too much idle time and too much rope for their own good. It's a hammocker thing.
