Started duck banding this week. The moult is still going on and things are slower than normal. We have a few canoe camping and hiking trips under our belts and are going on another overnighter this week.

Nothing really new in the winter camping gear but really love my Zpacks duplex tent for summer use. The sled dogs are as tired of the heat, humidity, and flies as us.

Hoop has surfaced. He has a new canoe trip posted to his YouTube channel.

Saw the first small flock of geese fly overhead honking yesterday - made the blood get all excited for opening week in a 2 1/2 weeks.

Shot 95 the other day and hit low 90's more times this year than last and in the playoffs again, hope we play well.
Went canoeing with my daughter and pup and heading out next weekend with son in law for back country canoe and fish weekend.   

Have a 2nd sled to get ready for winter so I can drag Chris deeper than we can walk!  ;D ;D

and my bathroom is almost finished being renovated.

moved the toboggan to my shed if that counts as winter related

Was on a canoe trip last few days, checking out moose hunting spots.  My first use of the snowtrekker every year is during the moose hunt, second week of October.  That's not that far away kids! Quit yur belly aching, -40 will be hear soon!

Give us a break! It is 30 degree C  here and humid.

A good time to order winter gear though as it is pleasantly cool down in the basement where I do my sewing.

Hello,

Check out the ski package I have for sale. I don’t really want to part ways with this set, but I need to raise funds for other gear. Here is the link to the Kijiji Ad:

I would be willing to ship at the buyers expense.

Other Winter Camping Gear / Re: Cheap LW overbags

I ordered one. If nothing else, it will serve to protect my bag from dirt and grime. Couldn't go wrong for the price.

I'll be very interested in your take on the bag. I did contact the business and advise them that there was a serious market for good quality overbags in the US/Alaska and Canada if they used 100GSM to 125GSM insulation and I got a polite reply. Because of an increased belly girth I also ordered a pair of ski pants and I actually believe their -30C temperature rating [ when used with appropriate under layers] seriously heavy duty pants and very warm due to the effective windproofing

Also available from the US site for $17-USD Much cheaper than the Australian price I paid but taxes are so much higher here as is freight cost

My skiing and snow camping is over for the season due to ongoing health issues but I would buy 2 of these and use them together in preference to the Wiggy overbag, lighter and warmer and so much cheaper, although 1 is sufficient to use here
