 Dear bloggy friends,

You are all invited to campsite number 20 at the Minnesota state park where we are living again for the next few weeks.  We are hosting a sauna, right here at our campsite.  A sauna is a small room or hut, heated and used for bathing or mental and physical relaxation.  The sauna is Finnish, but has close relatives in other cultures: the Russian banya, the Native American sweat lodge or inipi, the Turkish hamam, even the Japanese onsen.   (My info for the proper names of these steam baths came from

 We just decided that temps in the 90's and humidity in the 80's should be good for something, and we decided a sauna would be the ideal activity.  However,  everyone is to be clothed.  No nudity allowed! BYOBST.  ( Bring your own beverage, soap and towel!)  The sauna will be right in the great outdoors of site 20, no hut needed,  or fires to attend......just sit and sweat.

And, if you get too warm, we just had the air conditioning fixed in the trailer, so we can come on inside to cool off and relax.

Hope to see you soon.

Gosh - never thought about it but I guess we've got our own sauna right here too. Ole will love that as he's a Finlander! I'll have to inform him that he doesn't have go build one now. He tells stories about taking a sauna and then running out and rolling in the snow in the winter or jumping in the lake in the summer. Uff da! Just not for me.
