Halloween 2014

Last night we celebrated Hallowe’en at the house. Ye gods it was cold but it wouldn’t be the same doing it at the flat. The house has an atmosphere and ambient very conducive for candlelight and creepiness. We had both fires going but the temperature just wouldn’t climb. The kids wrapped themselves in wool blankets and we watched horror films and then told each other ghost stories. It was great fun as always.

Another reason I like Halloween is that it’s the only celebratory festival where the kids look forward to it for the ambient and activities rather than for presents and materialism.

My name is Edward O'Toole and I live in one of the wildest, most beautiful parts of Europe, in the Carpathian Mountains of Eastern Slovakia. Life is an adventure - both physically and metaphysically... I've been living out here for the last 22 years, along with my wife, 3 kids and Jack Russell. My main interests involve bushcraft, prepping, survival and wilderness living (self-sufficiency and self-reliance), ecological, green, smart and natural solutions, motorcycles and motorbike club life, writing and art (I have 7 published books), and exploring the paranormal.
