Saturday 13.02. View from the train / d bridge. Here's That's where I'm going. I mean come. Go not difficult. In the sense that the snow is not very deep, about 20 cm, but, not very easy. In the sense that the weather is cloudy, snowing and everything merges into one light gray stain. Visibility is almost zero. Only occasionally snow dissipates and you can see the outline of the coast.
14.00 Passing 2.2 pounds on the ice, going to the beach and a little wandering in the woods, I decided that I'll live here. Wander through the forest is much more complicated, because the wind is not the same as the ice and snow around the waist. This forces to stay in the first available spot, but this is not worth it. Believe me, it is better to half an hour to crawl in the snow, and choose the right place, getting up into the first and then regret it. Just search and ye shall find. Do not give up and do not accept compromises. A place that I have chosen is well protected from the wind relief, with a perfectly clear ice, snow depth will suit me, next I saw a lot of dry pine trees, the ice I can hardly see. In short, this is the case when the best day to lose, and then five minutes to reach. Itself is very similar to snow caked lumps of sugar. It is impossible to model. Cut bricks from it too. Make a decision to build a shelter type overlapped gap.
14.15 First, try to dig his hands and sidushku. But the way is obviously inefficient. Besides quickly become wet and strongly freezing fingers. Very quickly, the thought comes to dig foam. Staley it at the bottom, next to knead snow legs and feet also throw it to foam. Then unload the foam near the shelter and do the same in the next section of the gap. The method proved to be very convenient and efficient.
14.40 Pit ready. It fits foam and not much space left in the end nogah.Pod trampled and compacted stairs to descend.
15.00 To cut down six floors hardwood logs. Before you hack foot dug snow around the tree in order to cut down the roots and nothing was lost. Made 6 poles, and the tops and branches promptly inserted from the top.
15.15 Covered the design cut-dry nylon and top birch, which started up in the morning for firewood. Some places do not have enough tissue remained hole. There planted more small twigs.
15.35 Well, of course, all covered with snow. Absorb need for thermal insulation. Where the hole had to make branches were slit. That is good. Carbon monoxide poisoning has not been canceled, and these slots will provide excellent ventilation.
16.10 House ready. It's time to go fishing. I go out on the ice in order to keep an eye on the place for a catch. Back and looked back at the same time. Beautiful.
16.50 Since the time to sit with a fishing rod I have no fish I would not quite athletic ways. Equips three trap for pike and go to my already-drilled wells.
17.10 Here's what a cocked trap with bait impaled.
17.15 And this is how it looks in the hole already.
18.10 Now it's time to eat. With the help of a chain and an ax drank showered and shred small pine tree. Well-established method of using foam digging a pit for a bonfire. Kindle a fire, start melting the snow. By the way: I do not advise to move away from the fire as long as it does not melt under the snow. At this stage, it can instantly go out at the most unexpected moment, and for him to constantly look. By this time I was a little tired, and cold. On this to start doing a lot of tea, which I drink with sprats, dried and condensed milk.
21.00 Quickly refreshed and vospryanuv spirit continues to operate in two directions: Harvested wood for dinner and breakfast (to be filled up and shred another pine tree), and prepare a solid dinner of rice porridge with stewed meat and dried chives. There is a nuance: even if you have just a bite and do not feel hungry all exactly bedtime to a full meal. The fact is that in the forest your body uses more calories than in the city (especially in winter). And, once you get hungry at night, and it will happen, you will inevitably begin to freeze. And this is where you come to your own personal BS. Out of this situation, only two: either quickly eat something, preferably fat (lard) or sweet (chocolate) or chatter from the cold. So that a large portion of meat porridge had to be very to the article.
21.45 Now it's time to bed. At night, the entrance to its burrow I CURTAINS camouflage overalls, clutching his ice screws and wood, and put the bag bottom.
21.50 Asylum is quite ready to accept the host.
Infrom the camp at night so my looks in a flash.
A like this without a flash.
22.25 The interior is not pretentious, but is designed in the same style. In the background, a bathrobe and a backpack. From the ceiling hung pants and shoes. Of course I hope that they will dry out, just in that position, they will freeze in a fairly natural position, and in the morning wakes them easier to put on.
EI, my friend, Boker, a floor lamp and bedside shelf.
Pozharny shield includes an ax, a flashlight and a bag with candles and matches.
Sunday 11.20In Boots feels like skiing. Practically bend. Happy thought of how it would be worse if I put them under his head. 🙂 (That's what I did when sleeping in a piece of polythene. Pants I was put under a sleeping bag. Both one and the other was a big mistake).
12.00 Made a fire, cook breakfast. Legs are thawed. Actually it was only half an hour for this trip, when I was cold. Today wonderful weather today. On the snow there is no hint. A little later the sun came out at all.
12.15 While preparing breakfast consisting of rice porridge for condensed milk with raisins and butter go check traps. Alas. Rabatskoe happiness away from me. All traps are empty. Can blame gluhozime can my ignorance of the reservoir, but it is one of the few cases where such a trouble-free gear remained empty. Well, okay. Visible, not destiny.
13.40 Backpack collected. Time to go home. I looked at the memory. Thanks to this house, it's time to another.
