Exploring Luksefjell with The King

The area was wiped out by the plague in year 1350. You can find old signs from the Medieval Age where German mountain men a.k.a. “Garpenes” was looking for silver. There has been a lot of local battles between farmers from Sauherad who took over the mountain after the plague and the general population.

Driving through this mysterious and beautiful mountain, valleys and peaks, you kind of sense that. The weather was extreme – snowstorm and minus 15 degrees with a windchill of -35. Visibility was limited and suddenly you could be surrounded with heavy fog.

No need to say I enjoyed the safety and excellence in handling difficult conditions by the Discovery. There is just a feeling you can’t describe to others if they haven’t driven a Land Rover before. It’s a combination of excellence, quality, power and safety. You feel like the king on the road, but not in a bully kind of way. A gentleman. If you’ve never tried one before, you wouldn’t know what I’m talking about – and I can only recommend you to try one at your local dealer. Then you’ll know. I guarantee it.

A truly magnificent area where I love to be. You feel alone, your senses gets boosted and you can almost taste and smell the history that surrounds you. I can warmly (cold) recommend a visit if you haven’t been there. But be safe. Weather can shift in a second and it’s not a place you wanna get stuck unprepared.

Why you should always wear wool when hiking and being outdoors in general

There’s something about being close to nature. Feeling the elements, touching our roots, finding our way back to something that we actually are very familiar with. We all have it in us, but many have forgotten the true connection with the world around us. We place ourselves in buildings so smart, that we dont have to do much anymore. We take the elevator, not the stairs. We push a button to open the garage door or order food online if we dont bother to make it ourselves.

I’ve been there myself. I worked behind a computer screen and all I could think of was getting everything automated Read more

My best hiking and expedition tip that everybody should put on their list

Of course the list of important gear, clothing and other stuff concerning safety is important. But there is one thing that I always pack first. And it doesn’t matter if it’s just a short trip or a longer hike/expedition. One thing is always key to remember. Everything can go wrong even on the most simple trip. You can fall, you can get ill, you can meet others that are having a hard time. So what is it then? Food! And not just ordinary food. A full meal. But how do you pack a full meal? That’s the best part, it’s already been done for you and it only takes 8 minutes to prepare. Read more

Some call it loneliness. I call it freedom. Some call it bad weather. I call it the beauty of nature.

It really depends on the eyes and how far you’ve drifted from your own roots. We all are created to live in nature, we just have learned to build houses that are so fantastic, that we don’t have to do shit anymore. And that, over time, transforms humanity. I was there myself. Read more
