    Canada>Ontario>Valens>EGL Gearing Up for Winter 2013-2014



    Seasons greetings!!!

    Temperatures are dropping and the daylight's dwindling. Sounds like a perfect time to fluff up the down quilts and have another Valens Winter Hang.

    All are welcome. Drive-to campsites,heated washrooms, showers and plenty of spots to hang a hammock. To top it all off, a roaring campfire and plenty of hot beverages.

    The date hasn't been fixed, but I'm going to suggest the weekend of Jan 17-19 for a one or two nighter, followed closely by a proper back-country winter hang a couple of weeks later.

    Chard..

    I am going to do everything in my power to come to this. I feel like I miss out on so much when I see these threads come and go.

    I'm still enthusiastic about winter hangin' I'm probably going to miss the backcountry trip though. Dates are good for me.

    -Toots will definitely pass on winter stuff

    Chard you read my mind. I was going to start a thread but as always you beat me to it. I'd probably be in for one night anyways. Not sure if the dates are good since I don't have my work schedule for January yet. At any rate, I'll do my best to attend.

    A little winter scenery to get people in the mood.

    Don't let life get in the way of living.

    Another lurker coming out of the woodwork.I've been wanting to attend an EGL hang since I joined hammock forums so I could learn more about "hanging". (spent 35 yrs in a tent.duh!) but every time a hang was being held I was working. **** shiftwork. Been out out on a few trips in my wbbb,time to try something colder. I'll be at valens with boots on! And yeah I dont like to pay to camp anywhere,but I'm going to make an exception this time.lol
    No signs,no fees,no rules,nobody. my kind of campsite.

    Inside outside leave me alone.
    Inside outside nowhere is home.
    Inside outside where have I been?
    Out of my brain on the train,the 5:15

    Hey Chard. Count me in for one maybe 2. Unfortunately my daughter is with her mom that weekend, she is keen to try out some cold weather hanging. I will throw some wood in the trunk of the car.

    Thumbs up Great timing!!

    Hi All,

    2013 has been a crazy year for me and it has weighed heavily that I have not been able to get out with my EGL friends. This is perfect timing and I have no scheduling conflicts so count me in!!!

    Cheers
