112 Oriole, Elmira, ON
I know I am going to get a lot of backlash for doing this, and Tim, I apologize in advance, but I have to bow out of organizing this trip. I have just found out that it is IILEGAL to camp overnight on Hockley trail.
As to the rest of the trips I have planned, people, don't worry, I'm committed (:
This trip is a practice trip for learning navigational skills in the bush. I am still new to this, I just needed a practice trip and wanted others to join me. I plan to camp overnight and will show people what I have been shown by others in this group. Topographic maps for the area are available at
You can purchase a compass at KW surplus cheaply.
Coghlans deluxe map compass is a good choice.
Friday--Meet at Birdland Plaza in Elmira around ten am then drive to Orangeville.
Saturday---Explore, then head back.
Questions? Concerns? Email me.
(: Please read Tim's list for what to pack.
If people want to share equipment or have further questions about the trip, I will be at the meet up on April 8th. I will bring copies of my map and compass notes and the topographic map we will be using. (:
