Rog, I was planning to come over to Scotland this autumn though I think I will postpone it to next year, there's just too much to do this year. Avoiding the insects is a good side effect, as well.
Jim, thank you for the kind words. Savonlinna is a beautiful city, especially in the summer. Great hiking around that city as well, maybe you need to come back sometime.
I also met a lot of US Americans from Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan who have Finnish ancestors, great people. I also need to get over to the USA some day, to see that great country, hike and get a trailname!
