  • 1 hour in forest.

    25 000 mosquitoes. (Ouch! Finnish Air Force.)

    2 500 blackflies. (Ouch! Finnish Stealth Fighters.)

    1 300 gadflies. (Ouch! Ouch! Their bites really, really suck.)

    12 lizards. (Cute.)

    1 adder. (Hurrah rubber boots.)

    3 elks. (You don't wanna mess with elks. They have bigger horns than fighting bulls.)

    1 mountainous pile of bear shit. (You don't wanna mess with Mr Bear or His Shit.)

    14 litres of blueberries. (In addition to all animal slapping, animal watching and animal bewaring.)

    It's summertime.
