This page will document the adventures of my wife Pamela, and I (Kaare), as we begin our new lives in the great north woods of Minnesota. We live in a small town called Finland, in a log house located 1 mile from Lake Superior. We are surrounded by wilderness, and are attempting to go back to the old ways of the Ojibwe, Finnish and Saami people. We know that this will be challenging, and do not expect to fully achieve this. We hope to integrate the teachings of the past in to our (somewhat) modern lives. I have been living here for nearly 2 months, and Pam will be joining me in just over a week. I have been keeping a video journal, and will upload the entries to this page shortly.
I took this photo a couple days ago, as I was walking by a lake that is less than a mile from my house. We are constantly surrounded by such beauty.
