I arrived today in Oslo Norway for several days of winter survival training. The goal is to get on some Nordic skis and head out onto one of the plateaus.
Temperatures are going to be around 0 f which will hopefully allow me to better understand layering techniques in these extreme temperatures. For the trip all I have is a bivy, a sleeping pad, and my down bag. No tent or tarp for this adventure.
Sleeping will take place in a snow hole one night and then an exposed bivouac on the second night. Once again the goal is to better understand what kit I need in order to survive a 10 day adventure by bike in these temperatures and conditions.
I will post pictures, provide some kit reviews and report on what did and did not work once I return.
Oh, did I mention I have never ski'd before....
