Deep Freeze 2018 February 17 to 25
« on: October 23, 2017, 06:55:47 AM »
Hi all winter campers . Went in this afternoon with Carol and our young grand daughter to check the condition of the campsite . It is in very good shape and I also took the pruning sheers cutting any in croaching brush from along the trail in .
 Thought I would post this now in case anyone needs to arrange vacation time for this . We will be going in at the same place as last year at about Kilometer 74.5 on Hyw. 144 north of Sudbury .There is a parking lot on the left (west) side of the road that we get the trapper to plow for us . Any one interested please reply here or send me a private message . Also any questions or concerns please ask . Any one new to winter camping , this is a very good place to try it out and see many different  setups . If you are cold tenting there is always a warm tent if you get chilled .Having said that you are responsible for your own safety and outfitting . There are plenty of experienced campers to give advice if required . Hope to see all the regulars as well as some new campers . I'm sure you will enjoy it as much as I do . There is a 10 Dollar a vehical charge for  parking to pay  the plowing . See you in Feb. scouter Joe  8)

Are the kids coming?
Even if they are I will miss them. See you in Waterloo.
I have a date with loving woman in Granada.

I intend to be there this year. Missed out on last year's, and was disappointed. The snow can't come soon enough.

I've read about this the last few years, wish I could go but it's just to far from NYC area.   I wish we had something closer here in the North East.  I read about a Vermont gathering but that's in a few weeks, not the Deep Freeze.   Do you know of anything else going on closer?  Thanks..one day, maybe when I retire in 2023!

Well, unfortunately I won't be able to go this year. I'm actually leading a winter trip myself, as I'm a full time guide. I guess the bonus is I'm getting paid for it, although I'd prefer to go to Deep Freeze this year. I guess there's always next year. Hopefully I'll see lots of pictures and trip write up from DF2018.

Sorry to hear you can't make deep freeze this year . Was looking forward to meeting you . Hopefully next year .
 Conditions are looking really good for this year There is about 18" of snow and even this warm weather and rain won't hurt that . If any thing it should settle it down a bit and make getting around much easier . scouter Joe

I work the first (Family Day) weekend, but expect to head up Wed for a few days.  Really looking forward to another fun time at the event.  Hoping for a cold one!
