Xmas Bunker

Eve of the eve... not much time, heavy rain, slush on the road... but I wanted to get out and about. And visit another bunker.

According to the Lynx database of the remains from the Soviet occupation of Porkkala, there's a bunker at the end of Tammitie (the Oak Road) near Humaljärvi lake in Kirkkonummi

Just that the road was slippery ice, barely wide enough to fit my car, ditches on both sides, and no way to turn back. And now I was stuck, unable to continue. Or rather, if I would continue I'd not be able to get back. So I backed up two hundred meters and found a more reasonable parking spot.

And I found the bunker, too, it was visible far from the road actually.

The bunker turned too to be the standard smaller Soviet bunker mode that we've already seen many times. Long entrance tunnel, beautiful green moss on the top entrance, and collapsed/blown up gun hole. But not all standard bunkers seem to have had a wall in the middle of the main room. Here they did, like the in bunker in Lindal as well.

Most of this bunker was quite untouched, main entrance would still have been crawable, the small side room and the entrance tunnel were intact, but again a few stones had been dropped on the top entrance, and the gun hole side of the bunker was partially blown up.

I had my drone with me, but it was raining too heavily for the drone to be flown.

WATCH: Two Climbers Fall into a Crevasse on Mt. Everest

Sure, climbing Everest might no longer be the adventure it used to be with glamping, pay-to-play summit ascents, and permit issues. However, the dangers are still very real, like when crossing massive crevasses through the notorious Khumbu Icefall. Two climbers were crossing a crevasse on a ladder while roped together, falling in after the ladder collapsed. According to the climber’s report, both were okay.

First, you need to watch this video all the way through to truly appreciate what a spectacular whipper this is. We’re not sure what’s more impressive– the solitary foot that desperately clings to the rock as this climber loses his battle against the force of gravity, or the fact that this guy survived unscathed. A healthy reminder to wear your helmet, for the most unexpected of whippers.
