2nd Minnesota Frozen Butt Hang
Calling all Old Dogs, Gray Hairs, Sourdoughs & those with frozen brain cells to the 2nd MN Frozen Butt Hang to be held the 20,21 & 22 Jan 2012
The hang will be at Sturgen Lake, MN at Camp Miller. There is 330 acres of prime Boreal forest. So the harvest of fire wood on site is no problem.
There are x-country ski-trails, lake for ice fishing. It also borders General CC Andrews State Forest that covers over 7,500 acres with 40 miles + trails.
The temps will be from 20F up to -35F.More then likely -15 to -30F .Camp will 1/2 mile + from parking. This will be a little thinner of the widge hang then last time with no warm tent or backup. Unless you have slept in the snow bank before and liked it this may not be the hang for you.If you do not have the gear and skills for those temps this may not be the hang for you.
But if you don't mind a little frost bite. A little suffering thats good for the soul. A whole lot of challange and great comradere around the stew pot hung over a northern fire. It may be just the outing for you.
This was posted in last years hang by Fourdog so I'm moving it so everyone can see it better.

Since the Wisconsin hang is about 5 hours closer, and I'm not sure I can get two 3-day weekends in the same month, I might only be able to do the WI hang.
Truth be told, I might just look for the hang that has the lowest temps. I'd like to see what I can handle. LOL

Pretty sure I am a go for this one
I have been thinking of coming up a day early, possibly even Tuesday, and possibly staying a day later, leaving Monday.
Suggestions on places / things to see?
What is the closest lodging in the area?

Ugh, that's Pinewood Derby weekend. As a Scout leader, I just can't miss that.
You know, I never feel like I'm very "busy" but every time one of these group hangs is scheduled close enough for me to think about going I always seem to have something going on. I must be busier than I think I am.
If your lucky enough to be outdoors, your lucky enough!
Thing1 and I will likely arrive on Thursday... long drive, so we want to spend more time there, ya know!
Here is historical data for Bruno, MN, temps in January.
