    Hello all:

    Rekindling my love for outdoors, done mainly dayhikes here in Finland.
    Getting ready for retirement years. Background in boy scouting in 1960s,
    some wandering in woods during conscript army duty in 1980s.

    Found you by googling. Looking forward to learn from you all.

    Personal anecdote:
    Got my first tiny & sharp puukko when I was round 7 years (very typical in 1960s Finland)
    for whitling and making whistles from willow. The scars in my left hand have almost faded away...

    Pete, the magnet for mosquitoes (my family and friends love me because of that)

    I'm also a mosquito magnet... I get bit first, often, and the most compared to anyone I know around these parts.
