Arrival Romsdalen!

Yes! We are finally here! Romsdalen! Another idyllic and fairytale like place. We will stay at Soggebru camping for over a week and use this as base for further exploration of the mountains and valleys around here. Romsdalen is a Mecca for BASE jumping and Anders is finally going to use his BASE equipment that he has been dragging along all summer. To get to Soggebru, we had to paddle the river Rauma upstream for 7 km. After 2 exhausting hours, we got ashore at this small and old fashioned camping. The camping has been used by BASE jumpers for years and when we got there we were greeted by a legend in the BASE community, Norway’s oldest BASE jumper, Tore Nagel. Tore is not far from turning 70, he has cancer and smokes like a chimney and he is still actively jumps of cliffs. This guy is a legend and he brings a lot of laughter where ever he goes, a perfect person to have in camp for a week.
