Combine with a couple "no bus" days, this week has eaten up all my free time this week. Tomorrow I am going to drive up to the park with the boy and have a look around at our potential sites but obvious mobility issues mean that it will be mid next week before I can get out of the car and go for a hike to find a spot.

    As far as the head count goes I am definitely attending. Anytime after noonish I can head up to the park on the Friday. I am still waiting on scheduling regarding Monday so there is a good chance I am staying till the end but a small chance that I will have to head home Sunday evening.

    I will report back as soon as possible and will monitor the thread to make sure I have a look at all suggestions.

    Cheers

    Cedar.
    Hey Cedar, hope your son feels better soon. How long does he have to wear the cast?

    I still need to purchase snowshoes...

    Put me on the confirmed list for arriving Saturday morning and staying until the food is gone.

    I'd like to thank all those intrepid explorers and those people with knowledge of the area. I wish I knew the area better to add my two cents.

    All I can say about snowmobiles is, if you're camping near a lake, especially a large one, it doesn't matter where you are, the echo of the machines roaring in the distance will find you. That was my experience hanging over New Years.

    I should be able to go up early, leaving from Toronto. May be able to offer a ride to an eager early bird. Or at least co-ordinate with those trail-breakers. Both my snowshoes and I are in need of a workout.

    I'm camping with the Scouts this weekend, so I get to test all my gear. I'd advise others to test/check their stuff beforehand as well (backyard or park). Make sure it's all ship shape and Bristol fashion and can safely handle the temps.

    I'm thinking about pulling a sled. Winter stuff is heavy. :P

    Man, you guys are brave! Depending on if it is unseasonably cold and/or stormy, Y'all could really end up testing some extreme temps!

    Do Y'all allow deep south redneck rebel types over the border up there? Won't happen this year, but joining in on a hang like that could be a major adventure for a southern boy whose record in a hammock is 10F!
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    You're more than welcome to join us Billy Bob! My nickname is Bubba afterall. Chard coined the term "EGL-Eastern Great Lakes" hangers to include our hammock brethren south of the border. Last year us crazy Canucks got down to -13F. Who knows, it could go lower this year. 10F is nothing to sneeze at!
