After a short flight from Tokyo where I was staying the previous night, I arrive at Memanbetsu airport and meet my friend Satoru Higashitani (a.k.a. Gum) and his son Todjiro (a.k.a. Monkey). Getting to know each other through Instagram, we met to paddle together during my first visit to Japan three years ago and, since then, became friends. This year I am joining them on their holidays in Hokkaido and the first river we plan to paddle is the upper section of the Kushiro river, which we also paddled last year.
The advantage of living in Santiago de Chile is that, just outside the metropolitan limit, lie different hiking and trekking areas, national parks, volcanoes and glaciers. Many of the trails can be done within one day with options of expanding it to two days.
Today, I had a chance to test our new Bushcraft Essentials Bushbox LF Titanium. I was looking for a wood burning stove which comes in a light package and the The Bushbox LF Titanium is probably one of the best stoves which I could find online.
We discovered Bushcraft Essentials this year at the OutDoor Show in Friedrichshafen and were quite excited to test them ourselves. The Bushbox LF Titanium generates good heat, is foldable and weights around 270 grams.
