    Default Cabin fever!

    Is anyone interested in an overnight trip to an old restored ski cabin?

    GC1HR0V

    Spring Brook Shelter Cache

    There is a cabin that sleeps 6, with a fireplace, tables and firewood! The trail in is about 2-3 miles and climbs about 500 feet. Tents are allowed also. The trail is open to skiers, snowshoes and snowmobiles!! (Sorry, no atv's) Dogs are allowed 24/7!

    I thinking about making this an event on the Jan 17th weekend, if there is enough interest and if the cabin is available. This might be the perfect oportunity to try out your gear before the BIG winter campout!
    The farmer gave permission to place the cache in the field, but the bull charges.

    Default Well, you know....

    I went on this hike to the cabin with tat on Sunday. We were both impressed. Pulling a sled to the cabin will be moderate to difficult work, but can be done at any pace. I can't wait to do this and will cohost the event with tat. The hiking/snowshoeing during the day should be fun.

    Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

    I'm having such a hard time believing you would say something like that after all the nice wood I gave you. Granted it was all wood that could not be split by me, but you are so much younger and stronger that I didn't feel it would be a problem for you.

    Wink Come on Vic, lets be fair

    Atoms are easier to split than some of that wood was. We had an engineer there (Tom) with all his protractors, slide rules and logarithms and he couldn't get it to part either. I think they just wore down the woods' will to stay in one piece by constantly calling it bad names. Or was that you they were calling bad names. Hmmm I can't remember. Anyway, that was some bad a** wood you had there.
    Happy Trails!
    Yeah it's a Jeep thing!

    and don't forget to mention that my enviormentally friendly chainsaw was also unable to even scratch that stuff...

    Vic's wood had much more heating value: Splitting only one log was enough to keep warm for hours! The wood at the cabin will only warm once, then it is done.
