Re: Camp

I wanted to report on an ongoing controversy that has recently arisen, pitting the skiers against snowshoers here at camp.  

The snowshoers have claimed the right to trackup the SKI trails with their snowshoes.

The snowshoers feel that the chores and hair combing they put it in, day in and day out, all vacation long, gives them the right.

Up until this point the skiers have stuck hard to their dogma of "pure" trails with "pure" tracks, ski only.  It has been a point of contention, and the fight over first tracks has been downright ugly at times.

Well now the two sides have come together.  No longer are the slowshoers relegated to secondary terrain.  They stomp right in the ski track and sweep wide in the corners providing extra large turning zones for those who chose to tele the big curves on Big Hill. Part of upper yellow set aside for single track ski purity.

In addition the extra grooming has given rise to a new sport called Snow Gymnastics.

Kumbaya.

Re: Camp

Sounds totally "camp" worthy to me. Tell them snowshoers to blaze their own damn trails!

There's no point arguing with snowshoers. Even when they're wrong, they're always right.

Re: Camp

At our camp there's only one boss. When he speaks or does something,we listen and we  do not question his actions. Sounds to me like you better start listening to the boss

Re: Camp

First work day at camp is slated for Sunday. It's firewood day. The guy who owns the farm we hunt heats with wood so we fill his woodshed for letting us hunt the farm, he won't take any money from us. It usually takes about 4 hrs to do 35 cord. 3 crews of 3 and we knock it out.

Re: Camp

4 hours to do that wood?  Is that cutting, hauling, splitting and stacking?  If so, that must be some kind of record.

Camper - you can come shoot stuff on my land anytime.  Not much to hit except my neighbors though.  And hey, I won't even charge you or make you stack wood

Re: Camp

Just saw dads video....priceless. We used to have a camp with a core group of around 10 guys. We lost the land to a State conservation easement. Some guys were 4th generation. It sucked.

It's all cut. We'll split, haul, and stack. We're on a farm so we have all the proper equipment to be very efficient, plust having a dozen or so guys makes it go quick. It's also for an outdoor furnace and not a woodstove so they're mighty big chunks.  We're also highly motivated to get done quickly cause that's when the beer and veni speedies come out.

Oh man that totally sucks!! We have about the same core group, we're closer to 8 guys. You guys ever try and get another camp going?
