Week Long Winter Camping Festival

Janet Rice-Bredin reported in her blog of the 8th annual Deep Freeze winter camping expedition began this week in Sudbury, Canada. Every February, people from all over Ontario and some from New York State spend 8 days camping on a remote northern lake. They load their gear which is tied to sleds and toboggans onto a special train called the Budd Car and get off at some predetermined point along the railway tracks. Then they trek a few kilometres to a lake and set up a sprawling campsite with many tents and the occasional igloo. Most of the tents have wood stoves, but some do not.
