    Well I guess I'm back on the not being able to attend side of the fence. The rest of May is not good for me. This weekend was looking really good for me but unfortunately Mother Nature has other plans. Postponing makes the most sense given the situation.

    At this point I still want to get out and do some kind of camping so maybe I'll do a car camp just to get out and sit in front of a fire and sleep outside in my hammock.

    It's not much of a consolation but does anyone want to turn this into a car camping group hang?

    Hey Bubba, I'll make it up to you on our next hang. It's just that the the idea of going for an early spring trip without wetting a line for trout is something I just couldn't bear. This is my annual pilgrimage after all. Again, I can't believe the ice and flooding this year. Pretty amazing!

    No worries. I want you guys to get out for some trout! If we had an impromtu car camp this weekend you could take you BB for a test drive.

    I can't make the long weekend but I'd accept the consolation car camping this weekend. Bubba, any thoughts on location?

    Canada>Ontario>May 2013 - EGL Spring Canoe Hang - May 2013 - Planning Thread

    At this point, is there any chance we would still be on for this weekend? I have to give a 48 hour notice to AO, so there's still a day or two but even as promising as the forecast looks, it doesn't look like strong winds are coming to help out our conundrum.

    I'd still love to get out this weekend regardless. Bubba, Im listening...

    The rescheduling should be fine, ill confirm later this week when things settle. Stoopid ice!

    I haven't changed my reservations so technically we might be able to still go if the Park gives the "all clear", but I just don't think it's fair to anyone to drag out the timing on this. Mother Nature's is giving us the cold shoulder this year. Maybe she's just giving the trout a chance to fatten up a bit more before we get there!

    If we don't go up this weekend, then I likely won't do a car camping trip but will wait for the trip. I've burnt many brownie points with the wife this winter and have run out of "get out of the doghouse free" cards. Besides, I'd need to arrange to pick up my daughter in Brantford on the weekend.

    Hey Keg. If I was going to go alone I was going to head up to the Pinery but if you're interested as well as others we can just do a Valens hang for convenience as it's more central for many people. I'll PM Taliesin96 about the crown land option but at this point I've started to resign myself to convenience, semi-luxury and a shorter drive.

    ...
    Valens is a fair drive for you to car camp but it's familiar and it is a good option for multiple hangers. If you come for two nights then it would be more worth it.

    That's too bad chard but I won't be surprised if you show up.

    Are you thinking solo canoes, or pairing up, rentals, etc? Or too early to decide the details?

    I'm from Haldimand County, about 4-5 hours from the park.
    Sorry I won't be able to meet you this time around. Maybe in the fall. Hopefully you can make it on the Victoria Day weekend.
