    Smile Video: Come Hell or Highwater

    Had been waiting for a weather forecast with northerly winds for quiet some time. Got that forecast yesterday.

    Another great video Blaze. Looks like you had to do a bit of swimming to get to that hang.
    How cold was the water?

    Thanks for taking us along

    I enjoyed the video of the trip there as much as the hang. Thanks for sharing!

    Super video "Blaze the last of the Vikings".
    Was the water over the bike path because the ocean tide was high?

    I really like how you have customized your cookkit. The tealite lantern/coffee warmer is fantastic.
    The material around the mini atomic and on the fry pan keeping the kit tight with no noise or rattles when hiking is a great idea.

    I sure like the longer video's with more of the country and details about your gear.

    thank you

    It’s a very neat and tidy place around where you live. You must have decent self-respecting people living there. Bike cam was just what the Hammock Forum members have been asking for - the houses are amazing! All the buildings are constructed with pride. What time of day was it when you were cruising through town (not many people around)? Did you “used to” ride to work? Yeah, bikes don’t like saltwater. Yet another great camp site, Blazey Baby! You’ll have to get yourself a kayak... that’s some **** fine kayaking weather. Thanks for showing the map! I don’t want to know how cold that water was! Thanks for showing me around your town, BlazeAway, it was very interesting!

    Well babelfish5, luckily I had a rescue bike while crossing the ocean, but the dipping of the toes was cold. More precisely 4*C.

    Best hanging spot ever TZBrown, though paradise had a snake. It was Saturday/Sunday so quite a few people was out enjoying the good weather, literally walking through camp. Good thing though, that the hang was not a stealth hang, since you have the freedom to roam, from the edge of the water to the max high water mark here in Denmark.

    You know photohiker, up here in the north (as in the south) we don’t just have day and night. We have daglys (daylight), borgerligt tusmørke, nautisk tusmørke, astronomisk tusmørke and nat (night). (This is so on equator as well, but only lasting seconds/minutes).

    Nay OutandBack, we are a whole tribe that keeps heading for the water at winter, and thus are called vikings.
    The cloth that secures the lid on the cook system (and that I use to grab the hot handle on the pot and use to dry it with) is a 1/4 of the cloth that I use as my towel.

    As I recall, twice a day and twice a month there is a high water, peaking once a month. Add a strong winds from the north and it is bound to rise to extreme levels.

    Best,
    Blaze

    Hi Bruciehi5.
    The day was the 40 years anniversary of our Queen’s rule of Denmark, and thus a lot of people were glued to the television.
    And the way I biked was my route to my old job.

    Concerning kayaking, I am a maestro, but had to abandon ship because of back problems. The kayak that I had was this, which I simply put, loved.

    Best,
    Blaze

    Whew ... that's a harsh way to start the morning! But what a beautiful location! Thanks for taking us along and showing some more of that beautiful country side of yours.

    Oh man, Hawk-eye. Hope it did not ruin the morning coffee, in which case I owe you an apology.
    But I do think that the scenes from that unique hanging place should make up for that hardship.
    Anyway,
    best of wishes,
    Blaze
