    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!

    Great video. Loved hearing the roar of that waterfall! Great music too. Thanks for the report. Sorry you lost a hiking pole in the effort.
