Last weekend I went to the cabin
I was concerned that there might be a large amount of snow on the roof and when I arrived, I was that I was right.
After getting a fire going in the stove, I cleared a path to the wood store
and then to the toilet.
I decided to make some lunch before beginning work. I had with me some sausage, bread, butter, whisky, cheese in a tube and a packet of hot chocolate + some chocolate raisins. I also found a tin of frozen Baked Beans in the cabin, so for lunch I had sausage and beans.
After that, It was time to get up on the roof and start removing the snow. Fortunately my father-in-law was nearby and called in to say hello and helped with the snow removal.
It took about three hours to remove the snow
To give you an idea of the snow depth, the next-box in this picture cannot be reached during the summer without a ladder!
After my father-in-law had had a coffee, he headed home. It was starting to get dark, so I kit the oil lamps and started making a leather pouch for my 8×24 Opticron binoculars. My evening meal to accompany me while working, was chocolate raisins and some whisky.
By the end of the evening I was a little drunk, but very pleased with my pouch.
The next morning I made Chaga tea and fried sausage and made sausage sandwiches for breakfast.
After breakfast I made a pouch to hold my First Aid kit.
For the closer on the pouch I made two holes in the lid and two holes in the front of the pouch and then threaded a match through the holes.
After lunch, I headed home again.
