Not much Island left

June 28, 2007 at 11:07 am 5 comments

Well, leave it to Brandon to start serious blogtroversy.

 We’re in Leknes after a fairly eventful morning. Let’s just say that we camped on the beach and did not identify the high tide line with complete accuracy. Let’s also just say the the Mountain Hardware Trango has a very impressively waterproof bottom. Let’s not talk about that much any more, suffice it to say, it was quite funny to celebrate another Bad Trip Leader Day, which you must celebrate at least once a trip. 

 Tonight we will head to Å at the end of the Lofoten, and then we will ride our amphibious Musk Oxen to Væroy or Røst and catch one last island before the long journey back.

 The people in Norway eat lots of Ice Cream, but its either soft ice or the generic packaged kind. Even cones are packaged. Oh how I pine for Bedford Farms…

    Let the blogtroversy begin!

    So, your attempt to use your waterproof tent as a musk-ox-powered ferry to Trondheim has been successful, and soon you will return to America, where you will visit and be surrounded by people who want to subscribe to pants.

    We will welcome you back. Here in America, it is hot. I recommend you bring the ice cream.

    the photos have been amazing.

    love, TO

    Ah bad trip leader day. I too have misjudged the high tide line, misunderestimated the lia-bilities of my participants, and said “its only a trust fall”

    See you soon!

    I am not laughing at the thought of you waking up to the lapping of the waves on your tent.

    OK, maybe I’m laughing a little bit. I’ve never got caught, but I have woken up a few times to stare at the ocean in an accusing fashion to make sure it was where it was supposed to be.
