The Winter Camping Rendezvous moving to Ely will prevent me from attending, so I've cooked up an alternative for me and my family, and anyone else wanting to attend. In the spirit of the Rendezvous, and my general laziness around planning stuff, there will be no speakers, no schedule, and no agenda other than to hang out and do what you want to do. There's some primo groomed xc trails (Smrekar trail system) a mile or two up the road, there's hiking/snowshoeing trails within the campground, and its on a lake for those who like to ice fish. Or hang out and sip bourbon.
I'm not terribly imaginitive, so its being called the Wisco Winter Weekend for now. I've created a Facebook event for those of you on there, it's a public event so respond if interested:https://www.facebook.com/events/697602333723972/
