    Video : Packrafting in the Swedish Archipelago

    My business sometimes takes me to interesting places, and I've used that opportunity to meet up with HF members. I had business in Stockholm last week, and let moski know I was coming. He suggested we do more than meet over a beer----how about spending a weekend out in the Archipelago doing a packrafting trip? Of course I jumped at the chance, and am extremely grateful to Moski for doing the planning, food purchases, and acquisition of a packraft for me.

    Of course I brought a camera, and so now the rest of you can get a taste of what it's like to drift around in beautiful spring Swedish weather with nothing to do but eventually catch a boat back to civilization.

    Nice vid Grizz. Great scenery and friends in far-away places. What more could one ask for. Thanks for the post. And thanks to Moski for sharing his homeland.

    That was great stuff Grizz !
    I don't think i sounded that strange after all

    How come that Swedish boat guy knew all about Dutch
    Is he really that famous ?

    This video was very nicely made,
    it even had footage i didn't knew about and i was there

    That was fun, let us do it again sometime .

    Will we see you at the Alpacka adventure in Scandinavia ?

    +1 on the great video comment, looked like a very nice and mellow outing.

    Very nice scenery, looks almost like home except from the rocks
    I gotta get me a packraft - looks like to much fun....


    Edit: Is alcohol-laced birch a Swedish specialty?
