No , the thing about buying the food was the bargain and far less than a DVV summer vacation . The lads offered me a tip to Chernobyl which was about 100 km , the boss firmly said no . It is now banned as the sate wasn't getting a cut , not safety !

We were talking about when transistors took over . I would say 1967 is my best guess . I think the Apollo project was partly responsible . Like lighting a fire the interest doesn't need space to fuel it now .

Technical advice if possible . Would adding a capacitance multiplier ( single MOS FET , in place of PSU choke ) to a SE tube amp increase second harmonic distortion ? It looks to me it does . I said to myself it is an amplifier , it must being doing something ? I could try a Darlington made up of TV transistors as I suspect they would be very linear as a current amp .
So, DVV is the guy taking burgeois vacations here?

While Nige is the guy who takes pedestrian vacations?

Yes, if you prefer instead of freezing to feed mosquitoes.

You can live there for free, no need for $200. Berries, mushrooms, fish, meat, honey, cedar nuts, you name it. But be advised that The Master of Taiga (siberian forest) is Bear.

Can you identify them because their scat has little bells in it and smells like pepper?

Hence the saying "Russian Bear"?

A few days ago, I caught a program on Nat Geo (which I like watching on occasion) about a guy living in the wild in USA for research purposes, whose best friend and inseparable partner is a grizzly bear. Really looks surreal, you see a man walking and a damn big bear trotting next to him like a puppy. They live together, they fish together, they even hunt together, and share equally each and every time.

The man says bears are great friends, so long as you always remember that they are bears and you think like a bear, rather then attributing them human characteristics.

That's a tip for you, Nige, if you should get to Siberia.

If I had lived under communism I am sure I would have been sent before now .
Bears , who needs them ? They fish for salmon so can't be all bad . It was recently discovered that the Panda is a bear . I think we might have guessed . DNA does tell us the most unlikely things !

It is said running at them is the only defense . It is so rare anything does it might just catch them off guard ( reportedly it did work ) . They are said to run faster than Usain Bolt . They can smell you 50 km away .

Unfortunately that guy met an early death:
"Treadwell was discovered dead and partially eaten by one of his beloved grizzlies at his campsite in Katmai National Park in the fall of 2003. His girlfriend, Amie Huguenard, was also killed."
Zoom lens is your friend. Bear (or moose, elk, etc) isn't.
