I'm pleased to say this will once again be an international gathering. Right now planning on 3 of us coming in on Saturday or Sunday and staying until Saturday or Sunday. This could be shortened on either end, or a few days missing in the middle by 1, 2 or all 3 of us. Hopefully we'll get our normal lot in downtown DF.

If that sounds a little vague it goes to the basic fact that apparently miracles of life cannot be scheduled in advance.

No matter what, we will be there sometime and really look forward to seeing everyone!

Hi all,
Nice to hear that you're going to have a large and international crew for DF this year...unfortunately I won't be able to make it again this year.
Who's waiting for the miracle of life to happen Tony? Congrats in advance.

Unfortunately Sebastian and me will not make it now. Not sick or feeling bad but I am scheduled for a test around deep freeze time . Doctor wants results first before I do strenuous activities. First miss for me :cry: :cry:

Hi Deep Freezers
For the second year in a row I will have to do with out the pleasure of being with you.
This year is at the instance of my Cardiologist. In October a great medical team replaced the
Aortic valve in my heart. I feel great and I past my stress test with flying colours. I am in a Cardio Rehab program and the I have a the strong desire to come to DF.
I hope to join you all 53 weeks from now. In the fall I hope to be in touch with you all to work out the details . In May of 2019 I will be 80 years old. If I don't feel I can carry at least most of my weight I will not come. It is very important to me to be able to pull most if not all of my full share.
I camped in the DF parking lot and visited the DF town site in June on my return from visiting Tuktoyaktuk. It was a thrill.
I hope you all have a great and safe Deep Freeze.
Sorry to hear your news. I know your pain.

Hello everyone, yes, I'm going to try it one more time, but this time it will be without Chateau Moe, it has been retired! Scott has taken over the housing responsibility with his new abode. Scott, Mike, and I will arrive at the campsite Sunday morning.

Billy, Sebastian, sorry to hear you won't make it this year, hope things turn out well. Who's going to catch fish??

Dave (OAF), I know we won't see you at Deepfreeze this year but I guaranty we will be thinking of you as we sit staring at stars and contemplate life while sitting on the new throne you dropped of in Kitchener for transport to Deepfreeze . Thanks .

Joe, thanks again for all the preparation you do on our behalf, greatly appreciated, see you on Sunday.

P.S. if permitted, would like to transfer the Chateau Moe location to Scott's new tent.

How is the ice fishing situation?

I remember Billy having some success the one year we were there, but it may have been on the next lake over (Smokefox?).

We're considering bringing our pop-up fish hut, if it's worth it. We'd have to make it a separate trip, but it sounds like it's relatively short.

Looking forward to it

I was at the Deep Freeze location yesterday. The area has a thick icy crust and were expecting some snow this week! The trail is packed via snowmobile traffic from the trapper. I seen the trapper and chatted for a few minutes. He mentioned he fell through the ice yesterday! He is OK. He mentions there is so much snow on the lake that some areas are not frozen over very well ven though we have been in -20's for weeks.

I should be there this year not sure what day I will show up Saturday or Sunday. Looking forward to this years camp out.
