Morten Hilmer"s video from the trip https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYqEK4RFKUM&t=5s
Date: November 2020
Day: 11°C (52°F)
Night: 2°C (36°F)
Hours of daylight = 7.5
Location: Scandinavia, Denmark - previous viking country. North Jutland - sea, spruce/pine and hardwood forrest. Some of the most remote in Denmark, but a lot of people in Denmark so limited how remote it can get. A lot of birds and deers etc. No bears, only a few wolves - nothing dangerous for campers. If you want to do the same in Denmark you need to be the owner or get the owners permission.
Consuming: Water, juniper tea, bread, duck, oysters, soup with duck meat, raw cow meat, dried sheep meat.
A few questions:
1. Who is Morten Hilmer?
A nature photographer from Denmark and a dear friend of mine. Morten is specialised in Arctic and Nordic wildlife. I am currently living together with Morten on his farm in Northern Jutland. Morten has filmed some of the footage in this video.
2. What kind of bread were you baking?
In Danish is it called "snobrød" which can be translated into "twisted bread". It is a very common method in Denmark. Some of the benefits of "snobrød" is that you can watch the bread during the baking process to make sure nothing gets overbaked and the simplicity of not needing any cooking gear. "Snobrød" is also very quick to bake, only about 15 minutes.
3. Did you catch any fish?
No. Pike was the goal, but no luck.
4. It has been a year since your last video... What have you been up to?
Sorry. I have spent the time learning more craft - mainly log cabin building and old constructions of forge welded axes.
Some of the gear used in the video:
1. Pants = made by "Klattermusen"
2. Boots = made by "Redback" original boots
3. Tent = made by "Tentipi" Safir 9
4. Knife and axe = homemade
Video gear: Canon EOS RP, Canon 50 1.8, Røde videomic pro+, iMovie.
