    I thought it is about time I post some images again.
    These are three images from my last expedition north of the arctic circle.

    1 week without any villages, water from the glaciers only, almost no tracks, and what is worst .. no bridges across rivers ... in other words I was having a good time there :)

    1: myself

    2: my portable home (15 years old, and still in top conditon .. well, that is Hilleberg tents)
    [​IMG]

    3: some of my only friends out there (reindeer) .. taken from within my tent.

    Yes, took a helicopter from the village of Kvikkjokk to a Same summer camp north of the Sarek massif and from there I walked through the Sarek massif back to Kvikkjokk.

    Just me, my 28 kg backpack, my photo gear, my boots, that's it :)

    OK, you would meet people sometimes, either Same people looking after reindeer or some keen hikers.

    So here is the answer that I asked you in the continuation thread. You were there all on your own. Wow. Did you start talking or singing to yourself after a while (gregorian chants or so ;) ;) ;)) ???

    no, never sing Gregorian chants.. that will scare away the reindeer and attract bears! ;)

    And I actually met some people, a swedish couple I met right where number 3 was taken, we apparently had the same taste for a campsite ;) (number 3 was actually taken from within my tent).

    Funny enough, I met the same couple again three days later, where we then radio-ed a Same village to send us a boat to pick us up.
    There I had my first shower after over one week .. that was a cold-water outdoor shower of course ;)

    If only I remembered when my dad and brother were up there ... but my brother was still a school-boy at the time and is older now, too :shock: (good to know this fact does not only apply to me).

    well, your bag might be as long for your white L-beast, but not as wide ;)
