It was nice being able to sleep in a tent for a few nights this past year; I like camping and look forward to taking Max and Mina…
There are a couple of nice outdoors themed links I’ve been wanting to post, so:
Unforgettable Vacation In Karelia – Nice photo set from Finland or Russia, can’t tell which. (It’s hosted on English Russia, so watch for pop-ups.)
Then there’s this clip from a film called Alone in the Wilderness:
This kind of stuff just fascinates me – I often wonder if I’d be able to handle a month or two of solitude.
The guy’s homepage is here.
I’m acquiring the full video as I type this, so I may write about it again.

Notice the Karelian Bear Dog. You need one for this sort of wilderness adventure, but beware of the challenge in having this breed as a “pet”. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karelian_Bear_Dog
If you do go, have fun roughing it. But don’t take Mina with you or she’ll make life miserable for you!
