Some things we are planning are going okay, and others are not going so good. Right now, we are getting a list ready for camping in Finland and Russia this summer. We are also getting some gear ready for it too (should we bring climbing stuff????).
Hopefully that will be us!! --->
But soon the fun will begin! We gotta buy our air plane tickets (on Feb. 7th, theres a BIG sale at STA), and get visas, get train tix, book hostels, etc.
At that same time, we gotta get things going for our wedding, which now has shifted to July 8th. On Feb 15th, we must secure our permit for the park, and reserve a tent. Then there is the rest of the stuff to do.
And on top of all that, we're trying to make the student exchange to Denmark work. We are having trouble with the ABET accrediation stuff. More on that later!
Well anyways, the exciting stuff:
-We're getting a set of the Faraday Flashlights, the ones you shake and make power by induction.
-We're getting a First Need portable water purification system, so that we never run out of water. You can even purify a puddle of rainwater, and it'll taste great!
-Nicole is getting ready a homemade book/guide of the National Parks in Finland. I'm gonna put one together about Lake Baikal and the area. We have a book about the railroad, and we also have on on Moscow.
So thats about it for the update. Hopefully I can provide more details as time goes on!
