First pic- left foot in Norway, right foot in Sweden- on the Gjefsjo lake. (note: no w...

Re: To pulk or not to pulk?

Nice job! My wife (an RN) was an NPS Rescue Climber on Denali for the 1994 season, based out of the 14.200 foot medical camp. She pulled a Paris pulk up there (with rope leads) which was quite a hassle as they were all rigged together for glacier travel. She said the heavier gear and provisions were...

Re: To pulk or not to pulk?

This is the French (+2 Quebecois) pulk party that we ran into on the Saltfjellet near the end of our first Norway trip last year. We followed their nice track out to the arctic highway, only time we did not have to break trail during the whole trip. I asked them to tell me where they are skiing next...

Re: To pulk or not to pulk?

I originally bought the channels to hold the poles from Grant, the "guy in Minnesota". They were too small for my 1/2" ball-joint rod-ends so I sent them back. I fashioned these larger ones using the hole-saw method that I saw on a post by the Yukon chapter of the Alpine Club of Canad...

To pulk or not to pulk?

I say Pulk! Off to Norway-Sweden for a 21 day trip next month. Last year had 56 lb pack at the start, ugh. Ran into seven French skiers with pulks (only skiers we saw that whole trip), seemed like a good idea...so I just fashioned this out of a Jet Sled Jr and some fiberglass fence posts, a few ball...

Re-drilling a ski and ski strength?

I have decided to use NNN BC Magnum bindings on my upcoming Norway tour. I was going to splurge for new skis but the dollar is in the toilet and I am in Europe so all of a sudden that is a pricey affair. My Madhus Eons presently have Super Telemark 3 pins on them. I asked Rottefella and they said th...

Re: Alico Ski March Boot

These are excellent boots, the US Marines just bought 2,500 pairs of them to go with the 2,500 pairs of Asnes Combat NATO skis they just bought. They have been training a lot with the Norwegians and have a rotating deployment up there now. I think they were a bit embarrassed by: a. their in-the-clos...

Re: Second trip up north, last May

Hi Al, sorry just saw your response- Normally ski 20-35 km per day, the average being around 24km which is a nice day's tour in this kind of terrain which is variable from flat lake, rolling gullies, mountain skiing, and a bit of everything esle. Navigation can be time consuming as well, unless you ...
