    I think Mizzy would be good for me as well. A parking lot will be good for unloading, organizing and getting underway. The trail would be easy to follow and when Jayson marks the turn off for me and other Saturday arrivees, then that should also facilitate find you guys.

    I'm certain flagging tape will really help, but be careful not to overdo it. I can just imagine a stream of irrate snowshoers getting sidetracked off the main trail and dropping in for hot chocholate, especially if the EGL side trail winds up being the more heavily travelled one with all the people coming. Maybe flag tape a sign onto a tree where we branch off the main trail that reads...


    <---- Alognquin Mew Lake SnowShoeing Trail<----
    ----> EGL HANG ---->


    Just an idea.

    Anyways, I see my doctor Tuesday .

    Hey everyone. A week away and I'm just updating the roll call. We still have not officially decided on a site but issues like parking and safe unloading are certainly factoring into people's preferences. Mizzy lake trail has gotten a few votes but not everyone has chimed in.


    Roll Call

    Confirmed
    Cedar 328 - Arriving Friday
    Chenvre - Arriving Friday
    Deep Thought - Arriving Friday
    Jayson (and Austin) - Arriving Friday
    hankster747 - Arriving Friday
    Bubba - Arriving Saturday
    Lofty and son - Arriving Saturday
    Mongrel - Arriving Saturday

    Possible

    I'm also coming friday morning now, hopefully to be breaking trail with the first group.

    I have no preference on spots as I am an Algonquin noob. I have to go by the experience of you fine folks.

    is anyone planning on fishing?

    Austin and myself will be at the West Gate by 11am. Will then be proceeding onto the Mizzy Lake Trail and into the bush. I think we will be aiming for a point close to (45* 33' 39" N, 78* 40' 19")

    Chenvre, icefishing is not allowed inside the park. We need to stay on Crownland for that.

    Greetings People

    After doing a little testing with my new HDPE toboggan and 16x48 Huron snowshoes on the fresh snow that fell on Friday, I decided that doing a lengthy hike into the back country is not conducive to my state of physical fitness. The idea of the trip for me is for some fun and relaxation. However, if I am going to need a vacation from my vacation when I get back, then I defeated the purpose of going in the first place.

    I'm going to do some solo camping in the area I was in last winter off the Mew Lake campground.

    Have fun on your trip everyone.

    Cheers

    Brian
