Summer days of dreaming, cuben and proof reading

After great week in a mountain hut with my family I have now been waiting for inspiration in a lot of areas. It seems to have arrived. I am beginning to discern where my next solo hike will take place. I am also beginning to see how a cuben fiber tent could fit into that trip. And I am trying to rouse myself enough from the holiday doldrums to put the final touches to the translation of one of my books into English.

Scandinavia end to end with Townsend

Backpacking legend Chris Townsend knows more about  hiking in Scandinavia than most Scandinavians. Almost twenty years ago he followed the spine (or The Keel, as it is often called here) of the peninsula that is Norway and Sweden, from the southern end to the northern end. When I mentioned this to the Nordic Lightpackers on our hike in Vålådalen recently, this created some interest. So I asked Chris a bit more about this walk of his.
