General Winter Camping Discussion / Re: Where in the world is HOOP?

UPDATE:

Im happy to report that I've heard through a trusted source that HOOP is well and doing just fine.  He's busy taking care of other matters and will be back here in the near future.

Im looking forward to more videos and commentary on his YT channel.  :)

Good news indeed. Thanks

I sweat like a horse doing any kind of work no matter what the temperature but not so much on my legs.
Feet is another matter, I have used antiperspirants on my feet for what seems like forever

I do hope that Hoop is OK
As for transferring to a Facebook group at least here there is very little data mining going on and no irrelevant advertising popping up every 3 seconds
If he is ill or injured I wish him a speedy recovery

howdy gang,

I reached out to a fellow in Hoops location who knows him in the Physical world.  The response I received was limited as they didn't feel right responding to a rando on the internet but he would reach out to him and let him know people were concerned about him.

Life takes us all in many paths and priorities rise and fall depending on the urgency at the time. 

I see two major concerns here - one we are concerned about the person who did so much to get all of us into winter camping and helped provide this discussion platform, and the second is the business side of the site and the users needs. 

I hope the first is resolved favourably for Hoop.
The second is somewhat reliant on the first; however, I suspect that like trackshare and other forums this will eventually be replaced by facebook groups once the costs become prohibitive for the number of users remaining active and willing to fund it.

Enjoy the summer season everyone in the Northern hemisphere, and enjoy winter for those in the southern! I will still check back regularly but my attention is now on backpacking and canoeing!

Last activity was Feb 6/19. I contacted him before that suggesting another fund raiser. He replied saying yes. Not a peep since. I hope all is well with him!!!
