    Video from The Archipelago Trail.

    ###


    On April 28. I went on a trial hike testing my equipment. It turned into a 3 days, 2 nights hike of awesome beauty.

    Below is the video, "The Home Trail" and some pictures from the hike.





    First night.










    Stopped for lunch and a nap.















    Second night.













    My destination, the sea.

    It was a surprise to me that I has such beauty outside my door so to speak. Though the video and the pictures doesn’t do it much justice.
    Thanks for watching.

    The hike was a big susses and a nice break from the routines that I have had lately. I have been studying certain aspects of world history that has an imminent influence on what happens today.

    The Wheelie. First time in serious use and I love it. Though when going light, nothing beats the backpack.

    Yes it for sure served me well that two wheeler. Tilting it onto one wheel on the small tracks on the hillsides worked great.
    And mighty glad you liked the report Shug.
    Yeah, all secure in DK.

    We are on equal terms then. I love the wild beauty of USA and Canada. Guess the grass is always greener on the other side of the sea.

    Tremendous trip. And the days picked could not have been chosen better. This past night we has frost and to day brought hail.
    Good luck with the weather and your Hike.

    Well Bill, I might look human, but I am a bum at heart. Who’s land I was on I don’t know so I might have done something illegal, but compared to war and warmongering, my sacrilege was small. Stealth is the way to go in Denmark on less you can find a designated camp spot for the night. Though the authorities are softening some what up. One can now camp in most state forests.
    And Sweden. Sweden is unique with its “allemansrätt,” the right to roam.
