Just to let you know that may find it difficult to keep producing videos ever two weeks. The reason for this is i have a full time job working in a restaurant and Winter season is nearly upon us, so this is a very busy period work wise, and my free days are getting limited, but stay with me as i am producing videos still, abiet at a lower rate. I plan on bringing more Hot tent videos in some snow covered forests here in Finland, where i will hike in with forest skis. The magical season is nearly here everybody :)
Many thanks for all your support
FIRST TIME HOT TENT CAMPING / Polish Laavu & a 18kg Finnish Wood Stove
Did I enjoy my first time in a Hot tent with a wood stove? What did I think of the Polish Laavu? How did the Finnish 18kg wood stove perform?
I spent a night in a Polish laavu, low morning temperatures, but thankfully I had a Finnish wood stove.
I also show my Tepee that I built 7 years ago and my outside Toilet, that I built 3 years ago. All built using materials from a forest in Finland.

Hike & Overnight Hammock Forest Trip in FINLAND.
Tiilikkajärvi is a 34 km² National Park here in Finland. And we are going to explore a little part of it. Viewing amazing lakes and forest paths that take you to soft sandy beaches. The chose for this trip was my DD Hammocks superlight system.
Swinging freely among the tall Pine trees while watching a Time lapsed Sunset was a wonderful end to the evening. And in the morning enjoying a wonderful fire that put the scent of the forest back into my clothes. Come along and view a little of a Finnish National Park, some soft music adds to the film

i just wanted to share with you a few pictures of Kaisa and mines recent overnight canoe trip to Tiilikkajärvi National park, here in Finland. We had a great time just relaxing, swimming and eating. Unfortunately i didn't film this one as we both just wanted to chill. As always a big THANK YOU for visiting this page and for all your support. I hope you all had a great weekend and i'll catch you on the next one! Peace & Love Simon and Kaisa
Im looking forward to those colder nights in the Finnish Loue open shelter
What's your favourite Fall time shelter? Have you slept outside before? Did you enjoy it? What was the coldest temperature you slept in?
Drop me a message on my Instagram/Facebook or head to my contact page and hit the keypads. I look forward to hearing from you :)
The Loue is designed for a fire to be in the front of the shelter, great for those colder bug free nights
This shelter can be supported in many ways. Two examples are below, but you can also tie the front to a tree via a long cord, this gives you a lot of room in front. When i have a fire in front of this shelter i tie my cord half way down the poles on both sides and pull outwards thus eliminating the cord in the middle, and then a fair sized fire can go in the center.
