Nordic Skating is on

Finally the Nordic skating season has started for real, in conditions one can usually only dream about. The archipelago of southwestern Finland is getting ice, and the area of new ice without any snow is growing rapidly in the current cold temperatures.

Yet another winter overnighter

This time there was some colors, so it feels motivated to write a short blog entry about the outing. On Friday-Saturday night I made a fatbike overnighter to Vajosuo, which I'm making a video from. On Sunday-Monday night I went on another overnighter with the 12-year old.

Winter in the Kurjenrahka National Park

We currently have a really nice winter in the Turku region in southwestern Finland. Hence a little ski overnighter in the Kurjenrahka National Park seemed the proper thing to do. Jarkko and JJ joined me. I also had another motive for the little trip: I wanted to do everything we didn't do in the winter survival course two weeks ago. Nice skiing, lots of good food and warm toes.

Vigu Survival specialization, part 3/3. Winter survival

At the end of January it was time for the final course in the Vigu (Wilderness Guide) specialization in survival and bushcraft. This was also my final Vigu course, at least for now. I should graduate sometime during the spring.
