Hey All,

For those of you (like myself) that are stuck with jobs and stuff, where are you all planning to do you summer road trips.

So I'm planning on:
- Metcalfe
- Halfway Dump
- Bon Echo
- Afternoon jaunts to the Glen

Anyone else have any cool plans?

Hey if you want to drive I'm cool with that. But, I don't think it can be done in a weekend either.

If you're considering Bon Echo, I'll be custodian for the Canada day weekend. Let me know if you can make it and maybe I can catch a climb with you.

On call sucks. Actually I'm constantly on call I try not to let that interfear with my weekend activities. Now only if the damn weather would behave... Why is it beautiful on the week days and pouring rain on the weekends around here???

I think we're out of Blackfly season in Southern Ontario. But, in season ussual rule of thumb anywhere close to slow moving water bad. Further North... Bad.

I'm heading out from Guelph to the southwest for the month of August, other than that I'll be at Nemo after work during the week, and Lion's Head any weekend with nice weather. This summer has certainly sucked for climbing in Ontario though, could it rain anymore?

Christian: did you talk the gf into Bon Echo yet? I may end up opening the hut up Friday morning for climbing but won't know until later this week. Sat/Sun/Mon is definite though.

Hey busy weekend for me but myself and Xen_monkey did manage to get to the Glen for a bit of bouldering. Had to wage war with the tourist to get a parking spot but once we got parking and down to the Glen it was pretty quite.
