Making every day field day

  • SOTA: LA/TM-049 Holtankollen

    SOTA: LA/TM-049 Holtankollen

    Too much crappy weather lately, so both the 11-year old and myself really needed to get out a bit. And even though one of us would rather stay home and play computer games, we both went :-). Not really sure how much snow we should expect, we went for something safe and simple. Hotankollen in […]

  • SOTA: LA/TM-013 Vestre Vealøs

    SOTA: LA/TM-013 Vestre Vealøs

    Starting the year of right with another trip up Vestre Vealøs. I was there August 31. last year too. I’ve got to say the weather was more that a little bit nicer then! Took another route this time, walking up from the west (Lensmannsseter). About 3.2km, and 250m elevation. The trip up was icy, but […]

  • SOTA: LA/VF-013 Jordstøyp

    SOTA: LA/VF-013 Jordstøyp

    Last activation of the year, and I was hoping to do a 2+3 pointer, but didn’t manage to get away before 2 in the afternoon. So, I had to make do with an “easy” one. The walk up is only about two kilometres, but the total ascent is close to 250m – and most of […]

  • Every day should be field day: Frodeåsen

    Every day should be field day: Frodeåsen

    Time for a break from Christmas related activities; let’s get out of the noise and up onto higher ground. I’m lucky enough to live in a city, and still have access to nature and high-ish ground within walking distance of my home! Was planing a SOTA activation today, but that didn’t happen! So the next […]

  • JP99: Tromsø/Storsteinen 421m

    JP99: Tromsø/Storsteinen 421m

    I’ve heard Tromsø described as “the Nordic Paris” – but I’m pretty sure people saying this falls into one of three categories; 1) People that has never been to Tromsø, 2) People that have never been to Paris, or 3) People that has been to neither Tromsø nor Paris! Not to say anything bad about […]

  • F/LB5JJ or When in JN18du…

    F/LB5JJ or When in JN18du…

    I asked my boy where he wanted to go for our autumn break, and was told we should go to Paris. No further explanation as to why was forthcoming, but I suspect it has something to do with the fact that Lionel Messi now plays for PSG. If you don’t know who Lionel Messi is, […]
