    Mainewoods and I have scheduled a meet up at the Baker Brook campsite of the Great Pond Mountain Conservancy in Orland (just west of Ellsworth) on Sunday, February 5 at 9:00 am. Access is from the North Gate parking area on Bald Mountain Road, and it is about a .7 mile walk to the site. Map here:

    We'll be having a fire, cooking some food (bring enough for yourself or to share if you like), and will spend the day hanging out and palavering about gear, skills, and what have you. We have to supply our own fire wood, so if you feel like bringing a log or two, that would be good. It's winter in Maine, so if the weather really sucks, use your good judgment. Feel free to PM me with questions.

    Mainewoods, my friend it doesn't look good for me this weekend. I am disappointed I can't make it. We are eyeballs deep into the season. Looking forward to Spring.

    Have a great day and stay safe.

    Just a heads up. The road going into the GPMT from the south is a solid sheet of ice. I'm assuming the road coming in from the north is just as bad. Yaktack / stabilicers recommended.
    See you tomorrow!

    I hope the meet went well with a decent turnout. Maybe share a photo or three with us less fortunate...maybe.
