Back to Norway

This will be short because my arm is broken. One week to go in the cast and I am chomping at the bit. I hope to come charging out of the gate with a rowdy run down the Pilar stretch on the Rio Grande.

This season I want to get back to Norway, back to my roots. We moved to the US shortly after I was born. I have lived in 4 different countries and 8 different states in the US. Norway is definitely one of the most amazing destination kayaking places in the world: spectacular scenery, free camping everywhere, super friendly people, and the steepest rivers out there.

These pictures are from a more recent trip where a couple Kiwi buddies (Eden Sinclair and Jonathan Ramsey) and I spent the summer kayaking.

My best advice for a trip. Fly into Germany, buy a car, load it with alcohol, and drive into Norway. Alcohol and cars are brutally expensive there.
