Winter Wonderland Trip - Planning Session

Let's meetup and plan out specifics for the upcoming Winter Wonderland Trip. As the trip approaches, let's nail down some logistics such as carpools, trail meeting destinations, and campsite plans. We'll take a look at some weather reports to get a better idea of what we'll be facing. We'll also sit down with the map and plan our specific route(s). We can come up with a food plan, and also an updated group supply list. For those of you that have camped in the winter before, please bring a list of what clothing you'd normally bring for such a trip…so those who haven't winter backpacked before can have a frame of reference. I will provide some examples of clothing I think is necessary. If you have any questions about specific clothing, please bring it with you! The veterans amongst us can help narrow down a packable collection for you.

As with previous planning sessions…I would ask that this meetup be reserved for only those planning on going on the trip. And I would also like to ask those members that ARE planning on going to make this meetup. Please let me know ahead of time if you are unable to make this meetup, but are still planning on attending the trip…exact numbers are important for this. Also, please let me know if you are willing to drive and if so, how many people can fit in your car/truck.

I will try to reserve a few tables for us, and as always, look for the HW Compass at the pub. Please email me with any questions/concerns. Hope you all have a happy new year!

Regards,
El Cap

    Going to try to do this hike, but may have torn the cartilage in my right knee. Will see how it feels in three weeks.

      Sorry I spelled your name wrong when it's right in front of me.

      Thanks, Petra. It's already feeling a lot better. Supposedly, butter to coconut oil is a one to one ratio, but I've found with baking, you need less. So maybe if the recipe calls for 6 T, you could start out with 4 T and then add more if it seems dry.

    I can't make the planning meeting, but hoping someone can send me some info afterwards. You can email me through my profile or I can be reached at[masked]-0872. BTW, I live in the Columbus area so I will just plan on meeting everyone at the trailhead. Anyone else from this area?

    My brother and I (whom still needs to join this meet up) can pick up anyone from the east side. We live in South Euclid. Let me know. But plan on making the planning meeting.

      Ok. My brother Tom will be there too. Just give me a place to meet, like a gas station or coffee shop. I figured we will meet between 6:15 - 6:30 in order to arrive on time. We are leaving from South Euclid from Warrensville and Mayfield area.

    I'm going to do my best to make this winter trip, but I don't think I can make this meeting. I live on the east side and don't drive.
