    It's a little early, but I haven't been getting out much this fall so I'm jonesing for a canyon fix. I've only got one trip between now and Freezefest so I'm getting excited. Who else is excited to freeze their butt's off in canyon and spend 5-6 hrs each night sitting around a fire with good friends?

    Sounds like a nightmare! Especially if you are down wind of the smoke. I think I might try to come this year....Yeah, I think I will.
    The "Bad idea that caught on" has spawned marriage's and multiple decade long friendships and partnerships. I have spent countless days in the company of friends I have met at the Fest! Number 18, huh? Yeah, I think I will come.

    Dec 26th - Jan 1st are the (sort of) official dates, although depending on when the dates fall in relation to weekends affects when people start showing up. The first day or two are usually pretty small. I'll be there 27th-1st this year.

    Amanda and I, plus Bella, Everest, and his girlfriend Kyrstin, are planning to attend. We will probably only have a couple days/nights. :(

    You can expect Cody and Brad as well.

    Epic Blarney on the 31st!?

    When’s everyone showing up?

    I’m thinking about organizing a SLC group for fri-sun (27th-29th), and then another group to daytrip on the first for the black hole.

    Black Hole on the first... sounds great! I'll be rolling in most likely on the 31st for a hit 'n run of it, then home again on the 2nd. I'm about an hour SW out of Denver if anyone wants to cram a quick desert blitz with me.

    FIRE WOOD! Bring lots of firewood. This looks like a cold Fest, we will go through a lot of firewood if we have it. Bring a bunch, please!!!

    Well, I'm not sure if the past few days could be called balmy, even by Canadian standards. :D Kev, your past presence was reminisced upon at Sandthrax, hope to see you again one of these years!

    When we woke up this morning, it was 11 degrees F in Sandthrax camp. But don't worry, it warmed up to 16 by the time we packed up and headed home. Downright balmy in Mt Carmel now, January 2nd, 10:30 pm - 12 deg F!

    Word on the street it is downright TROPICAL in British Columbia!
