FF Harry is telling you NOT not to make fires! We sail the waters every single day. We meet a lot of canoeists and most are taking the fire-prohibition seriously. Some are not. We dedicate this blog-post as a warning for all of our English-speaking friends on the water. Many of you read this blog and we ask you please to reconsider use of open flames, even when camping on islands. As of right now there is hundreds of small or raging fires all around this part of Scandinavia and I think most would agree that there is no need for more heat this year.
Every single record is broken, then only record that can break this years dry, heat and warm summer will be the years to come. If you read this and has already made your fire for the night, please wait one extra day and water well before you leave your fire-site. There has been some close calls around already.
For our Scandinavian readers, here’s our report as of friday 13th of July:
We feel sorry about having to post this warning, but we’d rather not have to assist the firedepartment into the late darkness again. The fire was put out by the morning. This time. 🙄
Btw: we now have 50 cent off on melted chocolate!
