    The lean to's are for mostly storage but you can grab one to sleep in with no problem.

    Alright.. she may end up having to do that, as she doesn't want to try the hammock thing, and I don't have a.. "shelter for ground dwellers" that's suitable for winter.

    I can't force myself to use the T word...

    Hey folks sorry it has taken me a little while getting back to you. Some of you have asked if there are warm cabins there to use for their significant other who wants to come but won't camp outside. The short answer is yes...but we have to rent them. The areas that we are using costs $45 which I usually cover. If we want to rent the building down below which would give any number of people a warm place to sleep would add another $125.00. This would give us most of one side of camp. Those that have been there before know what this side looks like. It is the building down where we park our cars. It gives us a LOT of room.
    If there is just one couple or small group that would like a smaller more remote cabin the cost is $80.
    If there is interest of any of the options we should move quickly at least to reserve I can pay a little later. Let me know. Thanks. I am really looking forward to this hang. To add a little excitement if there isn't any by now. Raiff and I have some special surprises in store for the rest if you. I am not telling so don't ask. .

    I Allmost forgot- Thank you to Nighthawk for taking the time to look into this, we really apreciate it!



    YYYEEEEEESSSSSS, Then i am in! My wife does not want to be stuck outside so we are willing to rent a cabin for her, i will be outside in my hammock .
    If there are any other women that feel the same as my wife then maybe the women can share the big shelter and they can all split the cost.
    Hk2001 , this sounds like a good solution for your +1, gotta be warmer than a leantoo.
    If we can get a few more +1s the cost would be very minimal for all.
    Please let me know so we can let nighthawk know what option he has to reserve..

    I'll put $15-$20 towards the cabin.

    My best friend, (my +1) wants to TRY a hammock, or the lean to, but I'm still not sure if she'll make it in the hammock.. The lean to, I know she can do, but will still contribute to the cabin in case she needs to fall back to it.

    For the moment, for me, I'm looking at a 4 layer IX (20-25*?) UQ, with the reflectex window thing in between the layers of the hammock. (built myself another DL for this hang, no netting but a stowable 1.1 overcover )

    For a TQ I have a 15* mummy bag and a breathable SOL Space blanket.

    Still fishing for a winter tarp with doors, but if I have to, I'll make one out of the Black coated 70d from DIY GS.

    Liz (the above mentioned +1) will be running about the same setup.

    So please, if there's any holes, or cheap fixes to up the effectiveness of the above setup, let me know. You all have far more experience at the winter thing than I do.

    I intend on ordering a UQ blank from Lost_biker in the near future, and I put down as the #1 on my Xmas list.. but I guess it's up to the wife if she wants to buy me a bag of dead goose for christmas.
