  • SOTA: LA/TM-010 –  Skrehelle

    SOTA: LA/TM-010 – Skrehelle

    Time for some vertical movement, both for me and Oscar (my son). Winter in Norway makes it too easy to find an excuse to stay indoors. I reckoned Skrehelle (LA/TM-010), with its summit at 553m would do us both some good. And I think I was right. We couldn’t have asked for a nicer day. […]

  • SOTA: LA/VF-003 Ruketuten

    SOTA: LA/VF-003 Ruketuten

    Nice day to activate the third highest point in LA/VF, LA/VF-003 Ruketuten, at 603 metres above sea level. 4.2km each way, with a total accent of about 360m. Beautiful sunny day, and an uncomplicated walk to the top. I had the advantage of walking in the tracks of LA7MHA Tord and LA2IMA Bjørn Ingar, who […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]
