    Couple of photos from one of my winter trips in December. A lot of sun, hoarfrost and ice crystals. There was little snow at that time.

    These are nice! Frost always makes the prettiest patterns.

    How long do the formations usually last? Around here we're lucky to get them for a day or so, though this winter they would have lasted a week or two.

    It also depends on whether and conditions here. Say, from a couple of days to a couple of weeks. The most common occurrence is in the beginning of winter, when clear cold weather sets in after prolonged rains. But it may also occur mid winter when the temperature suddenly drops.


    Ok. Here are some photos from my recent 14 days solo ski trip.

    This is a river I wanted to get to. It is not entirely frozen, but with hunting skis it is pretty safe to move on ice, because of very little surface pressure.

    Guelder rose berries (Viburnum opulus). Common winter berry in our places. It is eatable in small quantities, but is usually bitter. However, in the second half of the winter after some frosts it may become sweet.

    Hey! Thanks for taking the time to post those, I really enjoyed them. I'm actually a little jealous, we don't really have forests like that around here.... or snow.... our 'forests' are kinda like scraggly swampy underbrush with every type of biting insect you can think of... and mosquitos, heh, they say parts of FL used to be uninhabitable because of the amount of mosquitos. ^^;


    Nice skis too, I was trying to check out the lashings they pretty old school, was normally my only gripe with CxC skis is then don't have that quick release the downhill ones have, like when you got to go up a hill and don't feel like doing the whole sideways bit can just shoulder them and go uphill and jump back on them.


    Pretty hardcore outdoors-verine? Is it just sightseeing or training for the zombie apocalypse?

    I'm just enjoy the winter)

    This kind of life is just feels right. The lifestyle I aspire to. It's not a hardcore for me. It is a way for me to compensate for the deficiencies of the human body, because it's really wrong that humans by default are unable to live freely in natural environment in the winter without dependency on civilization. The ability to live in my native environment, my theriotype environment.

    And also it is a great extension of freedom too. Things looks differently with the ability to live in the wild in winter at any temperature, without the need to return to civilization (except food supply, but food sustainability is on the list in the future).

    Also it is a bit of a training. Because I want to be able to do similar trips but in Siberian taiga, with the temperatures up to -50°C (-58°F). And I am pretty damn close to it.

    This. Exactly this. I feel the same way, I was just musing to myself I'd almost rather be homeless ( Ie, in the wild. ) than tread deeper into the bowels of 'civilization', been trying to find my own exit and it's long overdue.
