{Pre-meet dinner at 6:00 in Tony Roma's in the Mall for anyone who wants to join us.}

For this monthly meetup, we will be discussing cold weather camping. What to wear, what to use, and where to go! We will discuss layering, tents and sleeping bags, and helpful hints and tricks to keep you warm! Also, we will update you on the new backpacking trips for the winter/ spring, and talk about doing a week long trip sometime in the fall!

Look forward to seeing all of you!

p.s.- If you noticed, I changed the date, as I will be in Arizona riding bikes on the 4th!

    Frank was very informative on winter clothing and gear. Glad I was able to make it, and learn some more info.

    I was thinking around 6:00-6:15. I'd prefer a restaurant setting, like Tony Roma's. Easier to find each other, easier to talk, closer to Sun & Ski. And Vic can bring his Asian food; they won't mind. So, I'm making an executive decision,-- anyone who wants to eat can meet us in Tony Roma's at 6:00-6:15. First one there, grab a table or booth.

    Frank, wow! this is a important topic. I hope my work schedule permits me to attend. I'm a die hard woodsman from New England and camped in the deep snow most of my life. I'm a certified scout master and lead any where from to 20 to 40 boy scouts into the winter wild several times a year. I do hope I can come. If I can help -let me know.
