Preparing Cinnamon Apples with my Dehydrator

Today, I had some time to try out my new dehydrator and to prepare some tasty cinnamon apples.

They are great as a snack and maybe more healthy than the chocolate cookies I eat from time to time which I buy in the local grocery store.

Moreover, you can pack them into mini-grip bags and take them with you on a hiking trip.

For my packrafting trips I was looking for shoes which I can wear together with my dry suite and I came across the KEEN EVOFIT ONE. KEEN provided my a pair of test sandals and I took them with me on my three days packrafting trip in Teijo National Park in Finland.

How I record nature sound in stereo

Recently, I started with a new hobby - recording nature sound in stereo. Previously, I have always used my Sennheiser MKE 600 to record nature sound but I got interested into stereo ambient sound recording. I don't have much experience in recording yet but after reading several blogs I learned that I can attach my Clippy Stereo EM172 like ears on a tree. The tree serves as a human head. In general, I was interested in a lightweight setup and that's why I think the Clippy Stereo EM172 are one of the best solutions for me.

The Alpha PFD by Palm Equipment – Review

When it comes to any paddle sport, one of the essentials for white water safety is your personal flotation device or a PFD for short. There are different types of PFDs that you can choose from (all sorts of shapes, colours and sizes, in fact) and there are different reasons why you would like to choose one or another.

Liesjärvi National Park

A few days ago I visited the Liesjärvi National Park together with Kaj and Catja Koskinen to try our our new Alpacka Raft Gnarwhal which we bought at Packraft Europe who also organised the European Meet-up in Slovenia. Liesjärvi National Park is about a 1.5 hours car drive away from Helsinki and an alternative to Nuuksio National Park if you live in the Helsinki region (and probably also less crowded with people) and want to go hiking or packrafting.
