    That's really too bad, but sounds like you and Tracey have a great weekend ahead of you. There's always Algonquin in the spring!!!

    This looks really tempting......

    My only issue

    I don't have a winter sleep system
    but I do have a -7 phoenix and a -7 phincubator I could double up with a -7 down bag and a -7 burrow
    - not sure if doubling up will keep me toasty - any suggestions? comments?

    I'm hoping to test in the back yard -

    Love to - but I'm working all weekend

    I may go out tomorrow night - so far my wife is OK with letting me sleep out in the yard in the winter.

    Right now i have the family day weekend open. But i only have a 20 * F full length underquilt and a Old rag mountain TQ and a BBO topcover and BMJ with doors. i suppose i could use the ORM TQ as a under quilt and a couple of summer bags for topquilts.

    not sure i will be warm enough with just my FLUQ and TQ. I may have to test it out at Valen's this weekend.

    Hi all.

    I hope everyone had a happy and safe holiday season.

    I just wanted to start finalising the planning on our first hang of 2013!

    Let's start with a role call. Please confirm if you can or are seriously thinking of coming and for what dates. Carpooling has also worked out well so please indicate if you can provide or need a ride and from where.

    Dates: Feb 16th - 18th 2013
    Duration: 2 nights - With the option of additional nights for those hardcore hangers with time on their hands
    Destination: Say within an hour or so of Algonquin's West Gate.

    Chard: Personally, I'm aiming at all three nights. Prefer to carpool. Can access vehicle if necessary.

    Seriously working on it.

    Dates: Feb 16-18
    Duration: Two nights
    Destination: In or near Algonquin.

    I can only go for two nights and I am working until 11:00pm (possibily later) on the Friday so the earliest I can leave Saturday morning would be around 6:00 am but even that I cannot guarnatee. It would be nice to go to an area where it would be easy for people to arrive or leave at different times if necessasry.

    Re winter hang

    Working hard to be available and also working towards some suggested locales. Just back from holidays and will be able to confirm later this week.

    Cheers

    Greetings

    I am certainly up for some winter back country hammocking adventures.

    Dates: Feb 16th - 18th 2013
    Duration: 3 nights starting on the Friday.
    Destination: Say within an hour or so of Algonquin's West Gate.

    As for destination, if we will be doing crown land camping, I would hope the destination is far from any snow mobile trail (I like the peace and quiet) and that the parking for cars is plowed and relatively secure. If not, anywhere in Algonquin along the Hwy 60 corridor is good for me.

    I've also taken the liberty of creating a spreadsheet to help with organization of this event.

    Cheers
