“Operation Musketoon” Film version

Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) and producer and everything, Tom Edvindsen, launced a film version of the “Operation Musketoon” tonight. Mostly the same as the serie, but with some modifications and…yeah a film. A strong story of brave young men, who set out from the Orkney to execute an almost impossible sabotage operation in Glomfjord, Norway. September…

Perfect day in Trollheimen

In this Corona time, I have put my self on the ground. No-fly at the moment. So was looking into my archive for something unseen. And found one of nicest day in my home mountains. Just two people in the mountain that morning, and weak wind and perfect flying conditions. An memorable day!

Winter in Hell

The winter in Hell has been on and off each second day. For the first time I could paddle the side river of Stjørdals River called Leksa river wintertime. After several days with storms on the coastline we got a storm flood. And I could tick off a record going up into this river. Have…

Christmas Tradition on NRK

Nice experience to observe that Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) have made the series “In Jan Baalsrud´s Footsteps” into a Christmas and New Year tradition. Six year on the row. It shows the interest of an amazing history and the core values: “The will to survive” and “The will to Help”.  Jan Baalsrud had a miraculous will to…

Should wish I had more time to be out, but that’s it 🙂 Have been much in Trollheimen area training during November and lots of good experiences and memories! #speedfly#teamwendy#stjørdalfoto#Trollheimen#swing mirage#surnadal#runegjeldnes#nature

SKI SEASON STARTED

Had the pleasure to start the ski season last weekend. Found snow in Storulvan mountains on the Swedish side. Skied all the way up to the summit of Geitryggen. However, very little snow and hard to find landing spots. Lucky with the wind direction from North West 7-8 m/s. Only direction on the mountain for…

Favorite mountain!

Had a lucky flight just before the snow finally covered the mountains in Trollheimen. The home. On take-off left wingtip had a hit in a rock, which was really recognized. When landing I recognized I had a 10 cm hole in the left outer celle on the wing. Not so pleasant afterwards, but the wing…

Greenland Nunataks first ascents.

In July, a 23 years old dream came through. Climbing six of the Nunataks we saw when walking Greenland lengthways in 1996. And first assents of them all.  Fantastic weather, fantastic team and fantastic experience. Arrived Narsarsuaq airfield on the 13th of July and flew out onto the icecap on 15th of July with four…

Local Summer Flight

The summer has been busy and weather not so good for flying when at home. But had a nice flight back home at the farm early July. Waiting for an hour to clear and got the flight with good lift:-)

Wintermoods Northern Norway

Had the pleasure of spending six weeks in Northern Norway through January and February. It do something with you, and its good. The darkness. The Aurora Borealis. The changing cold weather. The blue red light. And you know the sun is on its way back. Got some nice trips in various weather and had some…

Some few days at Union Glacier, Antarctica Logistic Expedition Camp, doing the last preparation and training. Then 7th of December we were airlifted…

Last flight in Trollheimen 2018

Got many nice mountain trips in the “home” mountains in October and November. But often it was too windy or “bad” wind in the hight so I had to walk down as everyone else. However I had luck on some trips and had some amazing flights without turbulence. The heading says it was the last…

October is gone!

Has been a good October month even a lot of bad weather. Have had visitors from England and I have been out kayaking or canoeing with my Ally. Or up in the mountains. It has been lots of snow, and it has been lots of rain and windy. However have got some very good moments…

Season First Skitrip

Had my first ski trip this season 7th of October. Local mountain on the Swedish side in, Storulvfjellene. Put on the skies out side the car and started the trip up onto Geitryggen. Perfect conditions all the way up and nice perfect wind from South West 5 m/s. Got a perfect flight down again.

Just a perfect day

Have had many mountain trips this Autumn. Always hoping for a flight as well. However it has been few of them, because of strong wind in the mountains in September and October. Then it is extra nice when everything is perfect. Walk on the first snow in Trollheimen. Some wildlife. Beautiful view. Just a perfect…
