Snowshoes and Solitude
« on: December 29, 2008, 09:59:06 pm »
Just finished watching this DVD. Two thumbs up.

It was not as how to as I would have liked but it did show some great things like the lampwick ties on the snowshoes. Showed how it is to travel in very very deep snow in snowshoes and the progression of winter and more importantly spring. It talked about giarda and demonstrated how traditional clothing is effective in keeping warm in temperatures in around -40 to -50.

Overall a good DVD to go in my collection

I was supposed to find it under the Christmas Tree, but Canada Post could not deliver it on time. But as Georgi pointed out she got it from Les's website.

Wouldn't you?  Being naked in the bush is something everyone should experience at least once.

Yeah, but "sharing" it is a little kinky.

Poor Les; We go from watching his video of Surviverman to Nudity. ::) Is streaking on snowshoes an Oxymoron ? :-\
I think the whole bunch of us should put down our mouse put on our snowshoes and get out in the bush. :-*

There is good nudity and bad nudity. "Birthday suits" are in general not so horrid to look upon if they be neither wrinkled nor over inflated.

I, for one, have altogether ceased to look the mirror these days, what with some features of my own birthday suit being well wrinkled, while yet other features have become grossly over inflated.
