    I might have an extra pair i can bring. Are you a big.guy and will your gear be on a sled or your back. Shoes will only carry so much weight!

    Chard if you want I have got the green light for three nights...crownland and icefishing sounds like the best to me!

    I'm going to see what I can do to make it a three night trip. If we had a nice basecamp, it'd be nice to have two full days to just hang out, especially if we could do some ice-fishing. But as Deadeye wisely advised last year, the ice'd have to be safe.

    You have my attention Chard. I'm going to have to see what else is kicking in February, but I am attempting to make arrangements.

    If my doctor okays my ankle I'd be up for it. A base camp like idea could allow people to come and go if they can't do 3 nights (or for those without the fitness needed for snowshoeing all day).

    We certainly won't be snowshoeing under a load for more than an hour or so, depending on the trail. I'd still like to get back into the bush and away from busy trails and noise. Base camping it would be nice if we wanted to have a little leisure time to get out and fish, practice bushcraft or just have a wicked snowball fight!!! If there's going to be a lot of us then the trail to and from the cars will likely be easy to walk on the way out.

    Sounds interesting to me. I will get back to you after I work on "she who must be obeyed". Are we pretty firm on this date?

    Hey DRF, glad to hear you're interested, but it's still a bit early to be sure of the exact date.
