Good Morning Harlan

Congratulations on the opening of your new site. I firmly believe you have hit a
very required forum niche, and i look forward to active participation on your site.

My area of expertise is the area in Northeastern Ontario north of Temagami to
James Bay, and west to Chapleau, on wilderness Crown Land.

Good Luck, and Best Wishes for Success

Hi Harlan,

Congrat's looking forward to seeing the site grow with lots of input and participation from the many devotees of the "hard water" season. Cheers.

Thanks Harlan for the site.

I'm not a Canook but have doing the winter thing since......well since uncle sam gave me all those green clothes 40 years ago. Needless to say, none of those clothes fit me anymore  :-[, but I have learned to love the 'hard water' season none the less.

Actually, we've got a trip planned for January with a bunch of goom bahs from that 'other' site.  ;)

I look forward to your success here.

Good luck on the new site. Love the Solo paddling site. Just starting to get back into winter camping and this time as an end instead of means to an end as winter camp served me in the past. Very timely. Just bought a sled to make a pulk today!

Hi Harlan,
              I'm a member on your Solo Tripping site and found this site thru that site. When winter sets in ,winter camping is what I do with my free time. I'm looking forward to reading about other winter campers trips,tips and ideas. At 53 years young there is always something new to learn as well having something to contribute. Congratulations on your new site.

Just found this site. I live in central New York .Started doing some backpacking again last year after a 25 yr. layoff. Did my first winter camp in jan. 2007, a friend came with me once but other than that it has been just me and my dog.

Hi Harlan,

Thanks for putting this together! How long has it been up? I know Kevin at Empire Canvas Works had talked about doing something like this, and I was just about ready to e-mail and ask if he still wanted to do it and we would go in on it with him.

Looking forward to this forum. The one from "Backcountry" magazine is more about off-groomed downhill than winter travel. I'm glad you're here!

Be safe,
Hans

Hello,
I heard about this site from Tom at http://www.backpacking.net/bbs.html
I am from Saint John New Brunswick and in winter I like to ski and trudge and winter camp.

Welcome Jak,

Looking forward to hearing about your travels, gear, skills and stories.

The more we respect them, the more we cherish them, the more we nurture and take care of them. That is the underlying principle of Bushcraft.

Hey JAK, I heard about the site from Rick, so now all three of us are here. The difference is that you and Rick will actually get to practice all the good info Hoop and the others have got here.  My winter will be confined to California this year, but perhaps next winter, I can get up North.
