    Sorry to hear about that Jayson, you'll both be missed.

    On the flipside, I'm sure it'll be nice to get out and do some solo tripping. Where do you think you'll be heading? Trout season will have opened by then, so you might wat to bring a little rod and basic tackle for some of the creeks you might be crossing.

    Future hangs

    Hey everyone. I thought I would introduce myself. My name is Ian and I'm from St. Catharines. I'm going to have to sit this one out but I am 110% interested in being a part of future hangs. I'm just going to have to figure out a way to break the news to my pregnant wife and two year old.

    While we should all bring lighters/fires-steels as a back-up, does anyone who's coming feel like making the trip a little more interesting....

    • No use of lighters
    • No use of lighters or fire-steels (hardcore )
      Note: I've got a flint/steel/char-cloth kit if anyone wants to try their hand


    Firesteels should have a 100% success rate with suitable tinder. No one's going to go hungry/cold for lack of a fire.

    Been wanting to try my hand at a bow drill for the last few years but never found the time/incentive. Also never used flint, but would like to. Is flint harvestable around here?

    Sounds like a blast to me! Gives me a reason to hone my fire skills when I'd normally just break out the zippo.

    End of May is a nice time in Ontario! Let us know when you want to come over...pretty sure we could get at least a small group together!

    No worries Crash. Keep your eyes open for something happening in the summer. (May 19th is my older daughter's birthday btw)
