– my personal views on all walks of outdoor life

The blog’s dead, I’m alive

The blog has been dead for the past four months but don’t worry, I’m alive.

The winter has been extremely busy with work which luckily means lot’s of time outdoors and if not outdoors, then doing laundry and preparing for the next tour. That’s also the reason why the blog has been in coma for a while. More on skis, less behind the screen.

Please accept a few photos from the past winter as an apology. More blog content – words and photos – coming later. Maybe in June…

This winter I’ve been skiing and camping in Finland…

…and in Sweden…

…and recently in Svalbard.

But the winter ain’t over yet. At least not for me.

Later this week I’ll head to Greenland to guide a small group across the Greenland icecap from West to East which should mean another four weeks of skiing and living in a tent for me. Though the spring in Finland is tempting, I can’t really complain.

You can follow our progress on Social Hiking and read daily blogs (in Finnish) on the Avotunturit blog.

So, enjoy the spring also on my behalf!

And if you’re interested, I’ll be at the Erämessut in early June so come and say hello! And later in June you can meet me at 64° Wild. After that, I might disappear in the woods for a holiday…

    Thanks Martin! Also nice to see that someone is still reading the blog. Have a great summer, hopefully plenty of outdoors for you too!

    I’m still reading it too! Good to see you are v much out and about!

    Ive been outdoors a lot but army style (means digging a hole to live in and getting no more than one hours sleep at a time!) and looking forward to heading off on my own soon. Hope we share that boat back in Svalbard or even a vodka in Barentsburg!

    The army style doesn’t sound too bad either. I liked my 12 months of the Finnish version of it. 🙂

    You know, vodka comes (only?) in bottles in those places so sharing sounds healthy. 😉
