My Locale Scandinavia
About Me I'm new to lightweight backpacking , but I have hiked several times in the Scandinavian mountains. Mostly from hut to hut, but also one longer 6 day trip through the Sarek wilderness. I've also day-hiked on Corsica and in the Durmitor national park in Montenegro. Most of my hiking nowadays however is done only in my imagination since I have two lovely kids aged 2 and 1 to take care of.

Fuel consumption
Great article. For once it doesn't give me à "must have" problem since I already own a bushbuddy. One thing I miss a bit from the report is an estimation on fuel consumption. I us...

Maybe a warmer tent?
These articles were truly excellent. Among the best I've read on bpl. The weather in Washington seemed pretty close to what you can get in Sweden sometimes. Very few people use tarp tents he...
