“Not Far From Home”: Bikepacking by Erkki Punttila


Finnish bike-packer Erkki Punttila has a constant quest for adventure. Through his blog, PackGoFind, Punttila sets out on his latest excursion, Not Far From Home, with just the right amount of equipment and essentials to remain one with nature

” I really love exploring new places with my bike, but I also constantly hear the call of the sea – why not combine the best of both worlds? First enjoy a nice evening cruise and then hit the trails with your lights on and find a peaceful spot to camp. My boat is an old fishing boat and has a 5.4 liter truck engine from 1972 that has proven to be quite “reliable”. They are somewhat simple machines after you get to know the basics of maintenance and repair. Just like bikes. Remember your first wheel build? Slightly scary at first, but very rewarding at the end.”
