In this video from the GoExpo Winter 2018 in Helsinki you can hear what you can do in Saariselkä during winter time.
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.

Recently, I received a new cooking set from Trangia which I am planning to use together with my Bushcraft Essentials Bushbox LF Titanium hobo stove (more about it below) but also on campsites with fireplaces or with a gas burner.
Last weekend I went to the three days Packrafting meetup 2018 in Teijo National Park which has been founded in 2015, has about 79.000 visitors per year, covers an area of 34 km2 and has 50 km2 of marked trails.
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.
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.
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.
