we will see.

I set up the tent last year in the yard and got lots of practice digging it out.

I did not have a stove then and didnt camp out. Now I have the stove and will camp out.
January 20 usually brings out the minus 40 C and F at home . If I am chicken I can bolt for the house.

By then maybe I will know something about what I am supposed to be doing. Will be using the outfit of tent and stove in two weeks.

littleredcanoe, if you're at all nervous about winter camping, coming to DF is the best learning experience. We won't let you freeze and there's a lot of experienced people to learn from.

Debbie Do!!! I'm so excited that you're coming! I totally missed you last year. Cliff made for a terrible girlfriend.

I"ll send you a PM and we can start the party planning!

Hello all. After reading about your DF trip, it seems like it might be fun. I am seriously considering coming out for at least part of it. I will know more as the year progresses, but as for now, count me in. Just had some minor questions if someone in the know wouldn't mind private messaging me.

Thanks

LUrambo, nothing wrong with "PM's", but your "minor questions' are probably the same questions others might have. And therefore would be helpful if made public. PM if you want, but that's why this forum is here. :thumbup:

I'm guessing that a nearby motel won't be a problem for the night before and night after.

The big question is -- what do I do with my truck for the week? Leave in the train station's parking lot? If so, how safe?

Parking it any distance from the station might be an issue with sled and gear. (Although it would be fun to see me snowshoeing down main street pulling my sled.)

thoughts appreciated.
Ted

Hey Ted,
There has been no problem parking a vehicle for the week at the station in the past. They give you something to put on the dash so they know you've gone up the track on the Budd Car.
Local motels are also close by too..
Hope to see you out at DF11... it's a blast...
Cheers,
Al 8)

Ted parking at the station has never been a problem, lots of people do it.
Enjoying hearing from all the people that are planning to attend the 10th annual deepfreeze. Especially you Debbie :clap: . Looking forward to February. under 100 sleeps now[94]. Lots of time for winter to drop a ton of snow on Nitro creek before we get there.
Bill

I am thinking more and more about this. I have to work out a sleep system if I let the stove go out. Mine wont work below -20 unless I simply add another down bag and use it as a quilt. Help!

I have a tent and stove but its way too much for one. Seeking roomate. Snowtrekker 8x11 Shortwall Hybrid and Knico Alaskan Jr stove.

And I don't have a sled though the local hardware store has a pile of Paris sleds. Which one? ( I live next to South Paris)

Also possible carpooling as the drive is LOONG!

P.S. I can knit some wicked warm boiled wool mittens!

Don't let not having a sled stop you . I have an extra sled here and you are more than welcome to use it . Will easily hold all your gear and it pulls easy . scouter Joe
