Strangers are just friends waiting to happen - Part 1

So I finally met up with Odd today, Bergen's other blogger with a perchent for light and simple backcountry travel. As with some of my other 'outdoor' friends we met through blogs and Twitter. If there is one thing I've learnt is that not every 'internet weirdo' is, in fact, a weirdo. Some of them are cool people who share your passions. We both ski, hike and backpack so we had plenty to talk about. We're both waiting for 2012 Alpacka Denali Llamas too so we've each got someone to learn with, probably a good idea...

We spent a rare Bergen weather window blasting round Vidden, the cirque of hills not far from my house. There was plenty of snow up there but it's been packed down by wind and rain. Skis would have been an overkill and snowshoes, well, we talked a lot about the alternatives :) We talked cameras, trips, skis and packrafts and shared chocolate chip cookies. It was a good afternoon. Thanks Odd. Don't be a stranger.
