Backpacking North



Every so often I read a post on a blog I am following that reminds me of something I've done myself or that I really enjoy. In the case of Mark Roberts' blog, Backpacking North and his post on his Vaattunkilampi Overnighter both apply. This wonderful bit of writing, with some evocative photography, reminds me of my Glaskogen trip when we stayed in almost identical shelters to the laavu Mark used.


It's a post worth reading.

  2. Thanks Wurz but I've been persuaded to the Rab Infinity especially as the weight seems to be overstated by Rab - a medium seems to be far closer to the Yukon (depending on the down fill of course).
