Last night there was quite a heavy snowfall so this morning we decided to go for a walk up into the forest outside the village, along the logging trail. it was seriously hard going as it was a constant climb and the snow adds a completely different dimension to walking.
There were many animal tracks along the way and no human had been for a few days. Of particular interest was the tracks of a mother and cub wolf which went on for miles. We saw a few roe deer, they stumbled out of the woods onto the track, barked in panic and then ran off before i could get the camera ready.
Absolutely stunning scenery – perfect for a winter camp.
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.

Snow at last, Edward. Maxpedition Shoulder?
Hi Dom. More snow than you could believe. There is literally nothing which isn’t beneath thick white. Alex and I have just returned from walking the dog in a blizzard. Hardcore. My face hurts.
I’m afraid it’s a Chinese made Maxpedition clone rather than a Chinese made Maxpedition original. I wanted to see if the design suited both my style and my needs before investing in an original. I still seem to return to my old canvas Czechoslovakian backpack though. Time shall tell….
Are you sure you don’t want me to send you one of my surplus to requirement ones?????
You’ve only got one… you wore it at the Wilderness Gathering. Thanks for the offer but I’m still not sure if it’s my thing. I’d much prefer a Belstaff canvas and leather jobbe 🙂 That’s on my bucket list for this year.
