7th Annual WI Frozen Butt Hang
Dates: Jan. 12-14, 2018
Winter hammock camping season is here and I would like to invite all who dare to brave the cold to join us for the 7th Annual Wisconsin Frozen Butt Hang. This event is family friendly.This year, the hang will be on a private 40-acre location in Waupaca, WI where I teach survival and wilderness medicine courses. There are tons of good trees for hanging and lots of firewood. I’ll have the parachute shelter set up over the fire area which already has a ridge pole for hanging pots. The hike in is a short one this year only about 10 minutes making this very accessible for both pulk sleds or packs. In addition, just over the property line from the site is the ice age trail if anyone wishes to hike in from north of the property.
We’ve have had some of the coldest winter hangs the Midwest has to offer. Current record is -41F (2016 WI FBH)
Not sure if your gear is up to par? There will be a beginner overnight trip Jan 6th-7th at the same location. I host this beginner trip each year and will post an official thread soon with more details.
