    Great post Blaze! Love the idea of the tealight candle. I am always drinking warm tea or coffee when I'm in camp. Looks as though that keeps a cup of water warm at all times without having to waste a bunch of fuel.

    Enjoy seeing the countryside where you are from. That was a great place to hang, nice to see the sun come up and down over the water.

    Cheers

    What a beautiful hang spot! Thanks for taking us along.

    I'm thinking of making a small wire stand to use with a tea candle lantern and cup as I don't use a big enough stove to hold the lantern inside. I think I can get a bit of light, too, if the windscreen doesn't go all the way around. Thanks for inspiring me.

    That shot of the sunrise from the hammock was pretty amazing. Thanks for sharing your trip.
    I was just in Santa Cruz, CA and walked in the saltwater. That was way too cold for me. If your water temps were anywhere near the water temps in CA, you are a brave man...

    Great vid, Blaze. Judging by the quality of the homes in your videos, Denmark clearly has a higher standard of living than most areas of the US. Are you biking through the rich folk neighborhoods or is that the typical Danish home?

    Also, your land use (zoning) laws must be radically different from ours - we tend to relegate commercial/business to its own area, farming in another, and housing in yet another area (we also separate low-income housing from rich folk housing 'cause the rich folk don't want to rub elbows with the commoners). Whereas your countryside looks like the different land uses are intermixed substantially.

    Also, I noticed barely any trees as you biked through the center of town. Why is that? I live in a coastal community in New Jersey, on the Atlantic Ocean, and my town would seem to be anti-tree as well - I have no idea why. It just fascinates me when people choose to denude their property, or their town, of trees. I suspect that builders/developers the world over like to start building on a tabula rasa as a matter of convenience. Then they begin to think that the austerity of a treeless landscape is somehow cleaner and more beautiful than what existed before the bulldozers came. Go figure.

    Can't wait for the next vid to see more of your world!

    Yes, I did it out of a sudden impulse, but in hindsight the chandelier called for it.
    I would be very surprised if I am the only one doing it.
    And at second thought, there could be an issue with germs in lukewarm water.

    Drinking alcohol is nice, but afterwards hell brakes loose.
    With cold water it is the opposite. Going in it can feel like hell, but coming up out of it you enter paradise so to speak.

    Next video, and I will try to show you some of the more “beautiful” aspects of the city.

    Hi JayS.
    When I am sleeping I like to have as little light in camp as possible, so placing the chandelier in the Bushbuddy serves two purposes.

    Hi SilvrSurfr.
    The housing you saw in the video is for ordinary common people. In Denmark thus far, people have had more or less the same standard of living (except maybe for the super rich), at least if they stayed out of bad luck and spend their money in a sensible way. And as I see it, rich and poor mingle.

    I should think the attitude towards zoning and trees is the same all over, more or less.

    And in one of the next videos I will show you an amazing aspect of Denmark and how we have leveled the playing field so that all can be playing.
    Best,

    Blaze, I just enjoy the journey to get to the hang spot. The countryside is beautiful. The diversity of gorgeous homes and cottages along the way is wonderful. Where I live the more wealthy you are the closer to the hills you are. It looks as if the homes and people are spread out all over . Just spectacular! I bet the gentle sounds of the water rocked you to sleep like a baby.

    That sure is some beautiful country you've got there, Blaze.

    Thanks for sharing the pack with me. I'd never thought to get an old backpack and just strap it down to the rack, but it makes a lot of sense to have a small daypack along. Genius!

    It sure is soothing to listen to the waves as you drift off to sleep. I just wish there were more spots to do that near me; most of the coastline is so developed here in Florida that one can't hang most places there. Even the state parks along the coast won't let you hang (yet!).

    I borrowed your candle trick for this past weekend at the 2nd Annual Florida Hang out in Ocala National Forest, and it worked a treat. Thanks for the idea. It meant that I could have a cup of coffee and then a cup of cocoa without having to heat water twice (or keep a fire going in my wood burner).

    That water looked cold! I sure hope that everything went okay with your bike once you got it back home--saltwater isn't something to play around with. Though, considering the way you take care of your gear, I suppose I shouldn't worry too much about that.

    I look forward to seeing more of your beautiful city in the next video.

    Here in Denmark the most expensive land is the land with a view of the sea.
    And having lived just at sea level for some thing like 18 years, as I recall it, gives that sound a special meaning to me.
    And thanks russmay for watching and commenting.

    You are welcome FLRider.
    I decided 15 years ago that I had had enough of the crowded city environment so I left Copenhagen and settled down in the country side. Never once looked back.
    And glad you too are using your little chandelier for more than light.
    As for saltwater and a bike, it is a killer. When I returned home the front gear shifter had got stuck, so a good rinse down with water and then a spraying with WD40 did the trick.
    And I will do my best not to disappoint you with the next video.
    Best,
    Blaze
