Hey another random link to some pretty cool stuff. Where's Wolf these days, he's sure to love it!

A Norwegian documentary was made about a guy who lived and traveled around Sweden Finland and Norway for the year, living mainly off the land, meeting up with people at various stages.
He hiked in with his canoe and then paddled for a bit before putting it back on his back. Its a pretty full on story.

Some of it is up on Youtube and the first part can be seen here -->
Obviously its effort to read the subs, but its defo worth it in my eyes.

You can also legally download high quality version via torrents, if you have the technical skill to do so, however each file is c.700mb, and at a guess if you aren't aware of what torrents are then the youtube clips might be a better call.

english subs --> http://subs.hopto.org


Found via Hiking in Finland, a pretty worthwhile blog to read --> http://hikinginfinland.blogspot.com/

I know this is an old topic, but I eventually got around to watching this - it's brilliant!
Simply amazing outdoors experiences over a wide range of activities and the Norwegian language is lyrical. Very easy to download from UlsterWalker's links and any free program like VLC will play the subtitles. Worth the small effort.  8)

I thought thread was going to be Ulster Walker talking about a year-long adventure in Scandinavia.  He's not about much.
