Bald Lake Cabin

    So, Marta has rented Bald Lake cabin for us (thank you!) for Thurs night. We have 2 parking passes included with rental, pretty sure the State Park pass is OK too. I'll have the Subaru and room for 2 riders and stuff. (or 1 with dog) We can meet at Freddies in ER to carpool and caravan at 8 or if you're going directly to trailhead we should be there 9:45 or so. If you're meeting at Nancy Lake please let us know. If you want to carpool from Anchorage try to set that up in advance.

    Cabin is only about a mile or so in from trailhead. Friend from Talkeetna said they got 7 inches of snow the other day. I'm bringing skis and snowshoes too. I'll bring an espresso maker and enough coffee to share. Mark, don't forget your mug :)

    Just bring the usual-sleeping bag and mat, stove, food, clothes, drink.We'll probably have to melt snowwater unless there is an unfrozen creek nearby.

    I so enjoyed our Adventure. Simple things like sledding at night, watching Juneau bounding with the sled on the way in, skiing on the lakes with the snow so deep and trees animated with icing-like snow, untouched so far by traffic except wildlife. Giggling on my bunk listening to funny stories...

    Mark and anybody in Anchorage; If anyone is interested in getting back to Anchorage by 6 maybe 7 on Friday, I'm interested in carpooling from Anchorage (drive or ride/pay gas). Leave around 7:30ish? Bringing wood/firelog + sled, shovel. Thanks for the lantern Mark, that will be sweet. Mark, is this the cabin we stayed in a few years ago?

      I'll check with Lilli in the morning to see if she'd rather wait till 10ish or go earlier and meet you guys at the cabin. I'm definitely taking my car to Peters Creek, that will make transferring gear a little easier. I'm all packed. I'm really flexible on time, just looking forward to getting out of town!

      OK, I'd like to make use of the daylight so I think I'll just drive up. Shooting for around 8 to leave. I have been there so I might even find it...

    We are dog-ful by the way with 2.5. I left one spot in the cabin empty so we won't be overloaded, I'm pretty sure Lilli is coming also so there will be 5 of us.

    Any interest in carpooling? I'm bringing Champ but he can ride in back if needed. Could carry myself and 3 others.

    We can get Bald Lake for Thursday. Nice cabin out at Nancy Lakes. Easy to access from winter trailhead with many options for skiing or snowshoeing to Lynx Lake. Close enough that I could load the sled with wood for heating.
