Memory March

In December 2015 it was 120 years since Astrup death. Pneumonia put a stopper to our planned Memory March to Hardbakken in December, but it was finally made a reality last weekend. A fantastic ski and sled journey up the steep hills to the Monolith and a great test of my reconstructed Astrup-equipment.

Will post more pictures and text soon.

Yesterday I was interviewed by the NRK about Astrup and the E&K project.

27 of December is the 120 aniversay for Astrup’s death and a series of short talks will be broadcasted on the local NRK radio shows in Hedemark and Oppland in remembrance of the great explorer.

Thanks to Audun Kristiansen who wanted to make the story!

 

 

Astrup’s sled finished!

December2015  update: Finally got around and lashed the sled together with my wonderful and knowledgable grand uncle Hasse Lønne this fall. Read more about the process in the Making section

Have begun planning two overnight test runs with Gisle on the Femund in January and Februar 2016.
