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.

Enrico Veronese didn’t let the living nightmare that is currently Northern Italy prevent him from pushing the limits of his sport. With strict orders to remain inside to prevent the spread of Coronavirus, Veronese put up a bold first ascent of a new route. The new climb, is rated at 55° E5, M9, 5.14a, making it one of the hardest of its genre (whatever that genre may be). It even included a ski descent of his driveway and a bivy on a sketchy ledge (READ: his balcony.) RELATED: Stay

If you're looking for a sport where the main goal is to get close to death without actually dying, proximity wingsuiting is hard to beat. That said, we can't keep sleeping on proximity speedflying, which clearly approaches, if not eclipses wingsuiting's inherent sketchiness.

Sure, people are climbing harder routes these days, but in 1968, it was still a guaranteed full-on adventure. That’s exactly what the Fun Hogs – Yvon Chouinard, Doug Tompkins, Chris Jones, Dick Dorworth, and Lito Tejada-Flores – were in for during their legendary 5,000-mile road trip from California to Patagonia in 1968. Their goal was to summit Cerro Fitz Roy, but they knew the trip would encompass so much more than that. RELATED: Stay Stoked - Your Guide to TGR's Best Free Content Mountain
