Deep Freeze 2020
« on: December 10, 2019, 09:51:53 pm »
Well its time..... the snow and hard water have arrived.
Time to start thinking about camping in the cold season.
Deep Freeze will soon be upon us.
For DF 2020 we are going to a new location. It is still in the Sudbury area but on the east side.
For many years we have all benefitted from the knowledge and skill of Scouter Joe. Whether it be poles, firewood, water holes or map discussion, it seems Joe has been there for all of us.
Well this year Joe is on the injured reserve list and if Joe can't make it to DF then why don't we bring DF to Joe ?
Joe has graciously offered up his property to us cold (and hot tent) campers with some sweet amenities to boot.
Joe has 50 acres of virgin forest, ~ 30km of hiking trails across from his front yard, sweet, fresh running water and firewood as far as the eye can see, well as far as Georgi can see. LOL
Feb 15-23 stay for it all or come and go as needed.
Bring your own stuff or mix it up with a couple others and share your space.
***Entrance fee is booze/beer to the first tent on the left  ;)
we will plan a pot luck night (either wednesday or thursday night) inside a luxurious tarp shelter with lighting and there is an outdoor fire pit
There are approx 15 tent sites for hot tents marked out and tons of room for cold tenters. There is a thunder box somewhat central and for those who require more privacy, a rather decadent outhouse for those who need pampering. 123 parking spaces for vehicles give or take and an area for viewing the starlit nights.
since this is Joe and Carol's private winter residence, send Scouter Joe a private message and he will give out the exact location for the winter extravaganza.
Any questions..... ask away.
Hope to see everyone there.
If I have missed something then someone else update my info.  :)
The site previously used is still available but you know you won't have any fun if you go there including a plowed parking space.

The main planning and information venue for this event can be found over at the Canadian Canoe Routes - Winter Camping forum

I shall be there. Hopefully for it all.

Keeping an eye on this, even mentioned it to my wife last night.  How about a few shout outs why it’s worth a 2 day drive, one way.  Thanks.
I have been reading on the CCR thread. 
Also looks like record snow this year up there or did I misread that?

Just googled old threads and realized I asked the same question in 2017.  Oh boy. Yea it looks like I’m going to have to wait a bit longer until I can make it. Thanks. Best wishes.
