Everything

A cabin-goes doesn't only have to cope with the weather, but might have to make an Apocalypse Now! style journey inside his/her head. Company will not make this experience any easier. We can't help much with this, but we can offer some damn good clothes and kit for your little retreat from civilization.

If you don't recognize yourself, get out of here right now!

Pick your kitchenware with care

The amount of luxuries is a divisive question. Some want electricity and running water; others look for a Spartan experience. However, a matching set of dishes and cutlery is out of place at most cabins, so be sure to mismatch mugs, towels and spades. Thinking about porcellain? How about ugly aluminium instead! Hell, buy a strong German stainless steel cutlery set too!

Dress accordingly

Fashion is also best left to the city, choose relaxed and nature-proof stuff to wear instead. Don't get your #1 clothes sooty and smoky, but roughen up your surplus jacket to add character to it. Use those camo patterns! Dirt won't even show on them!

The Finnish summer often plays tricks on you, so be prepared: there's a 5 sec gap between these photos!

Take it easy

Whenever possible, take it easy. Field cots and hammocks are excellent choices for loitering, but also provide a place to sleep for passed out guests (or yourself).

Don't forget aids!

Prepare for accidents too! The cabin should have a dedicated stash of first aid items, but a smaller kit is good to have on you at all times. As a preventive method, drink plenty of water too. Canteens are most suitable for this.

Have fun! We hope you'll survive!
