or Russian Misery Tourism (c)
The car and camper got an all around pre-winter check. Yesterday I filled all four cans with propane, and am testing the outfit for winter worthiness thoroughly over the weekend.
If anybody wants to do a winter trip either along the Tersky edge of Kola, or to Lovozero, or anywhere else, I’m game. I’m marketing this type of travel under the slogan of Winter is the Soul of Russia (c) although, realistically speaking, there is likely to be a lot of Russian Misery Tourist (c) in it.
Please write to firstname.lastname@example.org (with a copy to email@example.com) and tell me just how you want to immerse yourself into two of this country’s main products, which are (a)snow, and (b) if not true misery, then prolonged discomfort for sure.
The vehicle is equipped with a 220v power supply (above)that consists of two batteries, two converters, and a generator. Redundancy supreme! There also is a warm toilet (below) and a few other things to make
freezing in the tundra, surrounded by wolvesto make travel easy and even enjoyable.
Basic bathing facilities can be easily arranged. A portable shower/outhouse designed to work in seriously sub-zero temperatures, will soon be ordered.
