Well, the NFA tour is underway and our first "mission" was to spend 3 days in a large wooden box, aka a Bear Hide. It's about 3 meters long by 1.5m wide and a similar height. There's no running water, electricity or "mod cons" so you have to share it with someone who you know really, really well!
You can't stand up (unless you're really short) and shouldn't venture outside, so the three nights confinement were spent sitting at the observation slits or lying down. We did venture outside once or twice to stretch and I came out resembling an elderly Quasimodo. Oh, and it reached 30c inside.
That's the downside. The upside is that that it is beautiful. No sounds other than nature. No traffic, voices, or electronics. Unfortunately there were no bears either, so we'll try again later on! There were Jays, Ravens, Seagulls, and Cranes - a pair of which brought their chick up to feed. There were mosses, lichens, blueberries. Nature in all its glory with just us looking at it.
