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.

This Guy Was Attacked By A Bear, Shark, and Rattlesnake

This Guy Was Attacked By A Bear, Shark, and Rattlesnake

You may have heard of this insane story. Dylan McWilliams, a Colorado native and outdoor enthusiast, was attacked by a bear, a shark, and a rattlesnake – all in the course of 36 months. This went viral a couple months ago, but as stories continue to circulate about animal encounters and attacks this summer, it seems relevant to revisit how 1) this is insanely crazy and 2) odds are it’s not going to happen to you. According to National Geographic, the odds of all three of these incidents

Singing Park Ranger Will School You On River Safety

Summer is officially here – river rats rejoice! The water can be enjoyed by all, whether your choice of vessel is an inflatable inner tube or an actual kayak. Rivers, however, are ever-changing. They can vary from a dry trickle to a knock-your-Chacos-off kind of current. And as this park ranger reminds us in the best possible way, don’t be stupid. Check the weather, wear a life vest, and perhaps bring a paddle. Happy Friday folks, and stay safe out there this weekend.

Life certainly comes with its challenges. But for some, those challenges far outweigh anything else, especially when you don’t get to pick your battles. When Tate MacDowell and Brian Mcdonell were diagnosed with colorectal cancer in 2016, they came face to face with life’s fragility. Never ones to back down, they vowed to make the absolute most of it, and set their sights high: to beat cancer and resume their lives by climbing the Grand Teton. Stay tuned for the official film release coming
