Day two. At night temps were around zero, so warm clothing was essential. Carinthia tropen sleeping bag provided good sleeps still. As breakfast was eaten we continued our hike. Destination was about 13km away.
It's a long way to the top.
You can see norways snowy mountain...
One goal for every summer holiday is going to the lappland. This time it located to "paistunturit, utsjoki." It also was first time to my partner and our dog to be there.
Good 900km and 13h drive to destination.
First hiking day was a little shorter, no exact plan where to camp. After getting...
Savotta finnish defence forces sleeping mat is really good for 3-season use alone. But for -20 temperatures, r value isn't enough. I think it's somewhere 2-2.5 on that pad. Put fjällräven ground mat under it or thermarest ridge rest on top of it and you will be close to 5. Thickness is the key...
Of course. :) It's winnerwell brand.
It has worked well, used it few times now. It warped a little on first use, but I think every lightweight stove does that when it's burned first time. It's fast and easy to assemble...
I have varusteleka puffy jacket too, its really good for 3 season use. Have it always on my rucksack. Planned to use combination of those two jackets when i'm in winter conditions.
That's true, its not cheapest, bought it at varuste.net sale, was about 100e cheaper than normal price.
I live in northern savonia, with my partner and dogs. :) Mikkeli is a nice city, especially in the summertime. And Yllas gets even nicer in winter. Views are great when you head north!
Well, like TLM said, it's not nice when moose hits you when driving 80-100km/h, I have few close calls when...
I have three setups to choose from.
DD ultralight tarp + hammock (if on area where I can find trees)
Carinthia tropen sleeping bag
Spring and autumn, when temperatures are between +5 to - 10
Tarp or nova explorer tent + titanium stove
Carinthia defence 4 bag
Me and my friend decided to go out and a bit refresh skills living in a wintery forest. Headed in to the woods on friday when sun started to come down and skied few km's with headlamps lightning our path. Went quite slowly to avoid sweatting, because temperature was -21c.
Found our planned...
I'm 30 year old bushcraft and hiking enthusiastic from Finland. As I love to see pictures from others trips, I try my best to post pics from my trips. I've been doing long trips to lappland, and northern Norway. Also lots of shorter weekend and one night trips. Sleep about 30 nights...
