Octopus & Chive Salad
at Peace Dam Campsite (WHERE)
-Hwacheon, Gangwon, Seoul, Korea-
with MtG, various members of Backcountry Camping
Despite the group’s name, a trip organized by Backcountry Camping typically involves a setting up base camp at a formal campsite, accessible by car.
The Peace Dam is a dam on the Bukhan River. Located a few kilometers south of the border Demilitarized Zone, it was built as a protective measure in case of (natural/accidental/intentional) flooding from the north.
Backcountry Camping trips – all Korean camping trips – also involve copious amounts of food and drink, often consumed deep into the night (see most recently 1.144 Grilled Yangnyeom Galbisal).
Combined, MtG and I brought a Chinese theme to the party (e.g., mapa tofu, spring rolls, gaoliangju) (WHAT).
