My winter hikes have thus far included day trips and weekend long treks.
I’d go as far as to say the gate theory applies here – gas leads to harder substances.
How does one pitch a tent in a 33 meters per second wind? And how does one try this out in Jämsä?
I confess, I’m an autumn or a winter type.
The night in Muuratsalo didn’t offer too many surprises. Unless you count the car almost getting stuck in snow, the sudden overcast weather, a fallen sledge in the woods and a broken headlamp.
Winter camping has always had an unpleasant undertone and more than once I’ve woken up in a cold lean-to or a frosty tent thinking “wow, this is one rude awakening but I suppose it comes with the territory.”
Our blog is full of virgin flights and now you get to read about our very first ski hike.
