Snow Goose Parka

Many thanks to those of you who have contacted me with advise and tips about my future.  i really appreciate it!!

Last weekend we were at the cabin again and I did a spot of fly-fishing.

I caught a perch

and a Grayling

We forgot to take Kelly’s potty with us, so I built one out of plywood, scraps of wood, a piece of camping insulation matt and an old plastic container.

Kelly was so pleased with it and it worked so well, that we have decided to keep to use as “the cabin potty”.

A friend of my dads sent him a down jacket that he bought in Canada in the late 80’s.

It is made by Snow Goose which was the original name for Canada Goose

and the style number is 1990.

If anyone knows more about this jacket I would like to know more…..was it military issue for example?

I tried to run a tourist business when I moved here 6 years ago and there was very little interest, so I think I need to find something to do that there is demand for up here.  I’m considering going back to education (I left school when I was 16 without any major qualifications) and studying to do something completely different for a job e.g website building.  here is a website that I have built without a great deal of knowledge; http://www.nattavaara.net/.

One thought on “Snow Goose Parka

  1. You don’t need to go to school for website design – have a look at Lynda.com. I used their lectures for my degree course.
    There may be more call for tourism than you think, you just need to change the angle that you look at it from – online tourism could do a lot without the physical labour.
    You are already half way there.
