    Default Third Annual Winter Campout.

    Camping in the winter...what kind of a "nut" does something like that. Well come to Abbot on 3/7/09 and you'll get to meet lots of us.

    This year we have decided to do things a little differently. First off we are holding this years event close to the highway, so that getting to the event will be only a short walk from the parking lot of a hundred yards. Secondly is the parking lot (which Number Seven is keeping plowed) which will let us keep the vehicles off the road during the night time hours, which has been a concern in years pass.

    The reasons for holding the event close to the road is to allow those not use to winter camping the added security of being close to their vehicle, for that mid night escape if necessary. Also any of our members who were not able to join us the pass two years because of the 1 1/4 mile walk each way, can now come (at least for the daytime) and hangout at the fire, cook some hot dogs, play some games, do some snowshoeing, etc.

    So mark the date on your calender and come join us for a fun filled day doing what we all do the best....Bull....ing.

    Shucks, Di and I are "camping" at San Juan that weekend. Maybe next year.
    Sometimes the road less traveled is less traveled for a reason.

    Yes it is! It is right off of Piper Pond and miles of trails. And, with all this new snow, the trails should be perfect!!

    Jake, just to add to what Tom has already said, because I know what a whimp you are. The trail passes close enough to the campsite that you won't even have to get off you sled to cook a hotdog or to eat some of the Whetstone Mayors beans. LOL

    I loved those beans . . . and the biscuits were mighty tasty too . . . heck I might swing up that way and "break" down again just to have dinner at his house again.

    Uh . . . that would be my brother-in-law or brother . . . in the past three weeks my brother has broke his Yamaha suspension and a high winder fancy part that prevents the snowmobile from moving any faster than sloth pace.

    As for my brother-in-law . . . ever since he bought the RX-1 he has had pretty good luck vs. his old Polaris which has lost both skis, had a gas cap that wouldn't turn on right, had an oil cap that wouldn't turn on right and well there was about another half dozen problems that it has had over time . . . and yet it always got my brother in law home on its own power . . . by the way if you come down that will be "your" sled.
