    KebTrek09 - a slight snag

    So me and a friend from work decided to hike the northern parts of Sweden this summer. 9 days, 130 km, and a detour up Sweden's highest mountain, Kebnekaise.

    He's a ground dweller, I brought my BMBH and a pair of sturdy ski poles.

    Here's Day One of that hike: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z-13gyh_df4

    Enjoy.

    On day one, no less!

    If you like the scenery and music, there are more videos on my channel. But be prepared to listen to swedish gibberish.

    I'll confess I sat down this afternoon and listened to lots of "swedish gibberish". You guys sure had a lot of fun - and your buddy's boots! Oh my!

    I know, right?

    He got new ones for the trip, broke them in, and the soles came off. So he sent them back and got replacement boots. He broke those in, and THE EXACT SAME THING happened again! But he's a stubborn bugger, so he brought them anyway, and repaired them with wire when the soles finally came off completely, hahaha.

    It's the exact same route, only we went the other way. We started in Abisko and hiked south to Nikkaluokta.

    And you're right, there are exactly zero trees up there.
