I am in not,in any way, interested in political turns during war,my honour and gratitude goes totally to the men that made it all happen,especially during harsh winter time war,in frontlines,in the backs of enemy,in the supporting squads and field medical tasks,i salute every person who defended us, by doing something with their own hands...and also to the mothers and folks back in the home´s who had to raise the kids,feed the familymembers with what they had in hands,and it wasnt much.
In modern Finland,thanks to war veterans and gone heroes,i can enjoy freedom to walk in to the woods,set up a fire and enjoy the silence,sounds of the campfire, let my hands warm in the glaze and carry my coffee pot and axe freely.
During war,and long after that i bet average joe couldnt afford a premium coffee,like we do in todays free Finland. I got mine from Paulig, and i can tell you its fine tasting indeed,this dark roast.
Even the pot i have,is traditional and back in the wardays there has been similar designs,that i know. Mine isnt old and beaten,its actually in its first use in that picture,and i thank OPA company for mine. Coffee pots like these fit needs more than well,and this one surely will last longer in camp-fire use,than any aluminium hiking model.
Ill be writing more about this trip later,both in Finnish and in English.
