    My wife and I will be spending the month of March in sunny Florida, so that should help us in the wait for Spring. ...and yes, I will be taking one of my hammocks and tarp with me to FL.

    Mort, keep watching the trip planning section for a hike & hang in March around the Central Florida area. We usually are in the Withalacoochee Forest around then, east of Tampa. We would love to have you join us!!

    After meeting Gary, that statement doesn't surprise me one bit. He's on a whole different level.

    I agree. My area got some lake effect snow yesterday. We went from none to about 6" in a couple of hours. The temperatures were well below freezing for a week or so and now my local forecast calls for rain and temperatures well above freezing.



    Indeed, snowshoeing is great fun.


    You call yourself Canadian??? We are supposed to get rain come Tuesday and Wednesday. Leave your canoe out in your yard to satisfy its thrist.


    Cheers

    Hahahaha!!!! Nice!

    Trust me I'll be out soon as the rivers are ice free. Already made plans to paddle the Kattawagami River for roughly the time the pack ice leaves James Bay. Should hit high water and no bugs

    I long for summer, too. But, at least in the mountain west, things are dangerously dry. I'd welcome a few really wet, snowy months. I don't want a repeat of the fires, dry mountains, etc. we had last year. It'd be nice to have full lakes and flowing streams again this summer.

    I live by the wasatch front and the mountains are so tall the trap heavy poluted air until it wind or rain comes in an d the n the polution disapates or is blown away. More heavily crowded air means it is harder to warm up thus the cold spell. I don't have winter gear nor do I have the money to attend a nearby hang so I am waiting for spring so I can get out there. But if you come to utah your apalachians would look like hills. I have been to the east all hills to me. Any way I hate winter. Anyone interested in planing a hang in utah in a couple years we have some good stuff up in utah county for hanging (Ashley National Forest and Uintah Wilderness).
    Bacon and Camping makes me happy.
