OL-leiren bestilte 1500 egg gjennom å oversette via Google Translate. Men det slo feil. 15.000 ble levert på døra. Vi ønsker lykke til og håper at de norske gullhåpene er glade – veldig glade – i egg: :D

I purchased a Norwegian jacket this evening. It is made by Bergans.

I usually buy Swiss jackets (my favoured brand is Mammut) but I love this colourway.

Per, do you have a view on Bergans jackets?

Am trotting around Lembongan Island these days, carrying my trusted Bergens ryggsekk. So does my wife. To bloody hot for the rest of our Bergens kits.
Most of our winter outdoor clothing is Bergens or HH, come to think of it, so is our tent and sleeping bags. Been using it for decades, well satisfied.

Haven't been paying much attention. Slow wi-fi, if any, bloody hot, a few small Bintangs. You know.
Apparantly the egg did work. :mrgreen:

What? Tiny Canada beat the mighty USA. :shock:
I'll be damned.
No surprises from Skegness.
Last day at Lembongan. Off from Denpasar, via Dubai for Oslo with Emirates.
Thirty and sun here, minus 14 and two meters of snow there. Looking forward to making snow angels in my Speedo, just to show off my suntan. :mrgreen:

I'm not grumpy, I am happy for those f***ing, boring, suicidal Finns.
Good riddance.
