De kan hämtas på Nordmarkens Kanot Center i Risviken mot en egen bestämd avgift där budet börjar på 1 krona och slutar där du vill, Ring 0573 38060 och bestäm tid för hämtning, Snart körs de till tippen, vilket inte är en bra lösning, men de måste bort, tyvärr.

I like winter.


Some years ago I was up in North West Greenland in the Qaanaaq region and up to Sioropaluk on a dog sledge expedition. I was told by the Inuit ´s that they have 10 month of winter and 2 month with bad snow and ice for dog sledge tours for going to hunt and fishing.  Today we got 5-10 cm of snow and the whole transportation system collapse. No train, no busses, cancel of flight, can’t drive on the road due to stocked car and trucks. Winter is always a surprise for many people. The one, who think ahead, will always be a winner. I´m not thinking of being smart, just to be prepared with different possibilities when winter strikes. Firewood in house, winterised car with some extra cloth, some warm drinks and tools to help me out if stocked in snow and some more things good to have in emergency or problem on the road. I always try to be one step ahead. Be smart say yes to the winter like the people in the north.

Speciel tour in November,


A few weeks ago in middle of October two guy came to do a canoe tour. I told them it was out of our season, but they took off for 2 two day tour. Excellent weather and they came back in good order.
Yesterday I pick them up in Glaskogen, where they have made a 3 day tour to some of our favourite lakes. They had full moon and made a night paddling and were listening to wolf call but no one was giving any sound. It’s nice to have costumer in what we call of season, but it takes folks with good experience, good equipment and a good deal of bushcraft practice.
If things are working OK for them, they will come back later this year for a new adventure I’m told.
