    wastelander Bad English, bare with me

    I don't speak spanish really, but that's what it said on the back of a soda can that was floating down the river this morning.

    Im an old fart from Sweden, new here and hoping to have some educational discussions and hopefully a few good laughs with all of you.
    I'm trying to learn more about desert survivalism because I never been to a desert but it seems to be alot like the snowlands here in sweden, but the other way around sorta.
    I'm all for trading information, so if anyone wanna know something, like if Swedish girls are as easy as advertized, how decomposed fish on a can could ever be considered a delicacy or my meatball recipe, just let me know.

    Good to be here!

    I don't believe there exist enough words which could ever explain that to me. My reaction to surstromming would probably be close to several of these guys...

    Oh yeah.... welcome.

    Welcome wastelander. As for rotted fish in a can, having eaten in a thousand truck stops I believe it's known here in the states as "the special".

    Funny those Tex-Mex
    I believe that the opening should be done underwater (I'll post here so them Macho Men ^^ Tex-Mex don't use their electric can opener in the sink ) and that deals with the smell.

    Ruotsin Girls ehkä Suomen naiset, kova, mutta sen arvoista.
    Miksi sanot, että vain siksi, Scandinavian naiset sanovat, mitä ne tarkoittavat ja haluavat.

    Howdy Wastelander, There are TMs online on desert survival. Get an old Boy Scout Fieldbook for info on different land problems. Water, heat, and critters are the basic concerns. A solar collector really works for clean water. Knowing the plants are important. Traveling at night eliminates a lot of heat related problems but the critters know the same tricks. Oh yes, a bud lives in the Netherlands and says his women are prettier than Swedish ladies--any truth to that?

    The only reason to force yourself to eat a small piece of surströmming with ALOT of chopped red onion, sour cream and a whole potato on the same fork would be that it is served with Vodka. The women of holland are great. I was in Amsterdam to.. Look at the canals and stuff. Yeah, they rock. But I like American girls alot too, guess you go blind for the ones around here.
    The meatballs, use some Allspice and I use oatmeal instead of breadcrumbs, I soak it in water over night or just make porridge, if that's your thing.
    Im having a good time reading up on what's been said on the forum, I like this place! Good work you all put in here!

    Welcome, I look forward to reading your posts. I have a Swedish friend and I can honestly say I have learned much from them. How often have I heard that Socialism is bad, yet your country is booming, so maybe we could say that Socialism isn't bad. I find when at talking with my Swedish friend about US politics, it is always very thought provoking because they are outside looking in.

    But politic aside I hope to learn more about your way of life.
