I'll contribute to whatever is on the menu. Ted
    We're aiming for site 134 adjacent to the heated washrooms. I've been in touch with the park superintendent and he knows we're coming in. Just say you're with the hammocking gang and you should be alright.

    As far as food goes, Valens has always been more of a bring your own, but sometimes someone brings something to share; potato salad, cake, pie whatever. The only danger is that everyone brings a side and there's too much. We've also had fun doing some camp baking as well. A little junk food never hurts. You need to keep those calories up. That's my excuse anyway.

    Liam will be there as well


    Initial weather forecast looks nice - won't be breaking and cold temperature records - but should make for a nice hang

    Hi all - (don't post often and usually join in under Jayson +1) but I had a great time last year and was thinking of joining in this year again. However I'm no longer a tree dweller and have rekindled my love of sleeping on branches, sharp ice and other items on the ground. You hammockers mind anyone using a tent?

    Well, err,, after having put it to the executive, I think we can allow one or two ground-dwellers in our midst. What has my curosity piqued is the reason you've returned to the cold, hard ground.

    Incidentially, mankind's greatest greatest evolutionary advancements arguably came after we left the trees.. so maybe you're on to something... Na..

    I thought I would give a head's up to anyone planning to go to the hang at Valen's. It has been closed for a few weeks due to the ice storm in December. There is still no electricity for the washroom. I talked to the front gate and they hope to have the power up this week. It might be a good idea to phone later in the week to see if they are allowing camping yet.

    I know HOYH and all that but it strikes me as funny to close a campground because there isn't any electricity. I know staff needs a warm place, pipes freeze etc. but still kinda funny.
    Hope all goes well and you don't get cancelled. I wish I were going, electricity or no.
