    Default Cabin Fever 2011

    http://coord.info/GC2KV4Z

    I have written my letter to Camden State Park requesting the weekend of January 14th to 16th for the Cabin Fever Event. For those who are not familiar with this, it's a winter camping experience not to be forgotten. Watch the date carefully, there is a chance I may not get the weekend I requested. My second choice was the following weekend.

    January 4th = I've got confirmation from Camden State Park and we have the cabin booked for the weekend of January 21st to 23rd.

    I believe you came in on Saturday. A couple of us skied back from the cabin and met you.

    Default Sleds

    Try any Yamaha dealership. The good ones start around $10,000!

    Sometimes the road less traveled is less traveled for a reason.

    Last year I used one of our kids old plastic sleds, and it was fine. At first I thought it would be too small, but TAT's right; too big a sled makes you bring too much stuff! I agree with Hollora, too. Wrap it all in a tarp or plastic in the sled so stuff doesn't fall out. If I remember correctly, there was one runaway sled last year that took off into the woods a few times on the way back!

    I tried to make this last year . . . by sled . . . but broke down . . . the only time my beloved Skidoo left me stranded in the woods . . . newer sled this year . . . if there is snow I may try coming in by sled to say hi.

    I got mine at Aubuchon http://outdoor-living.hardwarestore....ed-147520.aspx

    Almost any cheap sled will work, but if you get a wider one, it might not tip over as easily. A smaller one will keep you from taking too much gear.
