Hike, zip line, via ferrata and have fun!

Thinking of trip to Camp Fortune or aventure Lafleche on gatineau side of the water for zip lining, aerial adventure and maybe a hike. Would be game to bike over to camp fortune as opposed to drive as well if people were interested. Chat over lunch after adventure.

      Really sorry, but two of the 2 pm group are out. Unfortunately, I have hurt myself and am not the most mobile. Hopefully someone can take two spots in the 2 PM group. Angela, you have two more spots for the ride.

      June 28, 2013

    • Steve

      My friends chickened out because of the wet weather, so it is just me. More space in the 2 pm group!

      June 29, 2013

  • Angela h.

    Carmen cant make it so if anyone else wants to join there is an open spot.

    June 29, 2013

  • Carmen

    Angela I will meet you at 1pm at 180 Lisgar.

    Hey guys... Sorry i haven't kept up with this. I had a family thing come up so i am going to have to cancel (i think i was in the noon group). Thanks so much for organizing this though... I hope everyone has a blast

    June 28, 2013

  • Noel

    Too bad Sara! Thanks for updating. Any 2 from second group welcome to come out for 2pm. Second group needs to call and book though for noon. Angela- see you at 1:10.

    1 · June 28, 2013

  • Angela h.

    For those meeting at 180 Lisgar my cell number is[masked]-5714. Please text if your running late or get lost ect ect or not coming at all

    3 · June 28, 2013

  • Noel

    Ok- anyone listed for 2pm- let's keep reservation. If you are on second list please give Camp Fortune a call for noon spot. We still may all cross paths. For rides the meetup points seems to be 180 Lisgar at 1:10pm tomorrow. I will be the tall skinny runner looking for a ride.

    June 28, 2013

    • Angela h.

      180 lisgar has a very large door step area and I will be sitting there waiting.

      1 · June 28, 2013

    • Stephanie H.

      I will be there around 1 and I am a Chinese girl looking for a ride! Thank you guys and see you there!

      June 28, 2013

  • Alain G.

    I prefer 2pm also.

    June 28, 2013

  • Noel

    Have heard we have closer to 20 people potentially coming out Sat. Will call Camp Fortune and see if still ok.

    June 28, 2013

  • Noel

    Hey folks- sorry for delay! Camp Fortune Aerial adventure/zip-lining is booked for Sat June 29th at 2pm for a group of 10-12 of us! Cost should be $35. Check out the Camp Fortune website for more information and directions.

    If it is nice out I may bike out but looking to see who is driving over. (I live in Hull - but could meet someone in Ottawa)

    If you are sure you are coming out - please email me at [masked] and let me know if you are or can take someone else. I will make a list of people who have confirmed. Reservation is under my name (Noel Paine).

    Bring some refreshments as it could be hot but also could rain/thunderstorm (have to watch weather). There are also beaches not far for anyone looking to cool off after!

      Is the reservation adjustable? We are up to 18 now, and I'd like to bring another 4 :)

      June 28, 2013

  • Stephanie H.

    Oh. It's rainy day:(

    June 28, 2013

    • Angela h.

      I forecast is very often wrong and a little light rain is actually better because its a bit of a work out and I have done it a few times and its much better if its cloudy or a bit of rain.

      June 28, 2013

  • Stephanie H.

    Can I also get a ride if possible?

    June 27, 2013

    • Melanie

      Where on lisgar?

      June 27, 2013

    • Stephanie H.

      180 lisgar

      June 28, 2013

  • Karen

    Are there enough spots reserved for one more person? If so I'm in. I will drive and can take people.

    June 28, 2013

  • Stephanie H.

    I would like to join

    June 27, 2013

  • Sara

    Myself and a friend who is visiting would love to join you. Would it be possible for us to catch a ride with someone. We can meet you anywhere the buses go.

    June 17, 2013

    • Angela h.

      I can drive from downtown. I live very close to the court house

      June 17, 2013

    • Angela h.

      Hey sara can you meet in front of my apartment at 1pm at 180 lisgar.

      June 26, 2013

  • Angela h.

    Just wondering if a group reservation has been made yet. If the reservation is for 2pm then you have to arrive by 1:30.

    June 19, 2013

    • Carmen

      I will be there for 1:30 on the 29th. See you there and thank you

      June 22, 2013

    • Angela h.

      Hey we have to be there at 1:30 so can you meet me in front of my apartment at 1pm

      June 26, 2013

  • Noel

    Oh and like someone else has already mentioned - we should all aim to be there for 1:30 - they will remain open unless there is thunder and lightning. should be fun!

    June 26, 2013

  • Noel

    Hey everyone- glad for all the interest! Going to try and reserve a spot for about 12 of us for Explorer Aerial Adventure at Camp Fortune. Will confirm time, cost etc very shortly. Cheers- Noel

    2 · June 24, 2013

    • Melanie

      Hi Noel, any word on cost and what time this event goes to? Looks like camping is cancelled so will go zipping...

  • John D.

    Hi Melanie/all. That's what I'm seeing also, but it also looked as though the weekend itself was no-go from a few other posts below. I'm not available myself for the current (22nd) weekend, but may be depending on what new date/time is (ultimately) chosen - sounds like fun! Cheers, J

    2 · June 17, 2013

    • John D.

      Hi Melanie! Well, I knew this would happen sometime - now I can't make THIS time, either - got my MOJO (meetup group) workin' - same day & time with the MOJO folks. So while everyone here will be risking life & limb (actually, very safe - don't panic!), I'll be playing guitar in Greely. So many meetups, so little time!! Sounds like it will be a great afternoon - Enjoy! Cheers, J (ps lemme know how the exhaust repair worked!)

      June 19, 2013

    • Steve

      Darn it, now I have to choose between ziplining and MOJO! It's a tough call, but maybe ziplining this time.

      June 23, 2013

  • Melanie

    If my canada day camping gets cancelled I will go to this.

    June 23, 2013

  • Noel

    Hey folks- from all the feedback and comments have changed tentative date and time to 2pm on Sat June 29th. With enough yes responses will try and book a group at Camp Fortune. If date works for you - let me know as well is you have a car and room for someone else. :)

    June 17, 2013

    • Angela h.

      I am free on June 29th for 2pm. I also have a car and have room for 3 people. I live downtown.

      June 17, 2013

    • Melanie

      I think I can make this day and time.

      June 22, 2013

  • Carmen

    I would like to join on the 29th at 2pm, can I get a ride Angela. I could get to the Court House in Elgin St.

    June 18, 2013

    • Carmen

      What time do you need me to be at the Court House for the pick up.

      June 19, 2013

    • Angela h.

      If the reservations are for 2pm then you have to be on site by 1:30, which means leaving around 1pm
