Sad to hear jimmay. Look after yourself. I missed the New Years campout at Mew Lake due to a cold and I am glad I didn't push it and go.  It would have been a struggle to do it.  Say hi to T and we may see you later in the season.

We should start putting the Wintertrekking patches on the front doors of our tents like this.
A great way to invite fellow trekkers in for a mug-up and wee dram.

I think the canvas tent with a stove pipe sticking out is a dead giveaway as to who the winter trekkers are.  They may not be members of this site, but these people would be in the know when it come to winter trekking/camping.

As mentioned we're going to the Wilderness Canoe Symposium or I'd join y'all.

If anyone shows up without, their patch, be sure to get their toboggan lic. number and forward it to me so I can put them on report.

Won't likely be out until the following week.

Cheers,
Ken

I am not sure if or when exactly we'll or I'll be up.  I have been trying to leave since 4am this morning with out much success. Tomorrow doesn't stack up to be too promising either. Maybe Saturday or Sunday hopefully. I'll stay up for a few days next week. It seems (even as I write this 2 more projects have arrived to start as usual yesterday) that the getting away is the problem and not the staying away.  On that note, do we have any idea how many members from the forum will be up over the weekend?

I have everything out drying from a four day trip I just got home from. Should be all packed back up for Fri. We'll be there Fri night.

Sorry to hear you can't make if Jim. Wanted to see the new set up.

I'll be there for Saturday and Sunday, but hanging out with hammockers somewhere between Mizzy and Source Lakes.  I have to be back at work for Monday.  Have fun everyone.  Hopefully we get another chance to get together before the snow is gone.

Have fun and be safe everyone.  The forecast for the west side of Algonquin is calling for 10cm of snow through Friday morning.  The rest of the weekend looks good and will have at least 1 night in the -20s.

Cheers

Brian

This web address is the Ontbirds report from APP. It was posted last evening by Ron Tozer. It includes all the goings on in the park this weekend.

Great stuff OF. Sorry didn't get time to look it up. There ae many activities around the park. At the visitor center they have put a road kill Moose out in the marsh area. The center has a large viewing window looking out over acreas of the park. The wolf pack will find the Moose and start their feeding. This will occur at different times through out the day as the wolves return to eat. So far only one lone Wolf has found the moose but by the weekend there will probably be a pack around it by then.

I'll be on site 14 for the weekend.
