Imagine hosting a Finnish guest to your own North American backyard sauna. Imagine not just any Finnish guest, but one of the world’s leaders in sauna building, technology, and design.
Imagine joining the sauna session are also a few neighborhood buddies. Imagine everybody enjoying several hot rounds and cool downs cracking a beer or two, laughing and chattering away like long lost friends.
Imagine the Finnish sauna expert feeling right at home in your own backyard sauna
Imagine relaxing with us between rounds, and between some laughter:
“How many saunas have you had your hands in?” a neighbor asks.
“Thousands.” Responds the sauna expert.
“How does this sauna compare to the ones in Finland?”
“It’s good.” Looking around, he adds: “it’s primitive.”
Four attributes of a primitive sauna:
1. Tucked into a corner in the garage (close the changing room door to keep the cars out).
2. With a 5 gallon pickle bucket for löyly water (free).
3. Equipped with a well aged sauna stove that gets less expensive each time you fire it up (patina sold separately).
4. With an ability to host neighbors and Finns, cooling down with smiles on their faces between sauna rounds (beers brought separately).
“A sauna need not have to cost an annual salary.” A primitive sauna is one that becomes a part of you. Like a baseball glove, old school fishing boat, or your favorite fishing pole, sometimes the more you use a favorite possession, the more comfortable you are with it.
A new sauna is only new one time. Then, each time you use your sauna, it will become a bigger part of you. More primitive.
Is your sauna a primitive sauna?
If not, get out there and use it some more. You just may be complimented in the same way some day.
