Camp Laanitupa

Came back from a five day family vacation to Lapland. Third year in a row the same thing we could call an adventure in the not-so-distant past: getting a very basic fifty-years-old cottage into gear. First thing is to dig it up from one meter of snow in -30 degrees celsius. Then to dig a path to get wood. Cut the wood. A path to a nearby stream. Break the ice. Carry water inside. First night we got the temperature inside into maybe +13, second night +16, and the third night we broke 20. After coming back basically all clothes have a smokey smell. We all appreciate and cherish the modern home automation again.
