    Lappland -21

    Lappland -21

    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...

    Closed cell foam sleep mat for winter use?

    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...

    Wintery weekend

    Of course. :) It's winnerwell brand. https://www.mokkimies.com/winnerwell-titanium-tent-stove-fastfold-198kg 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...

    It's a foldable titanium stove, goes size of a laptop and weights under 2kgs, so size isn't problem. You can just throw it in to rucksack. :)

    What did you buy today?

    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.

    How to carry oil?

    For oil I use 500ml plastic alcohol bottle with screw top. If it holds cognac, it will hold oil too. And bottle itself is lightweight.

    Hello from Finland

    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...
