2 Wheels, 2 Planks: Norway Withdrawal

After a month of pedal-powered skiing adventure in a truly fascinating corner of the earth, we are all back home in Vermont again – safe and sound. To the wonderful country of Norway, the weather gods and the many new friends we made along the way: We cannot thank you enough for the abundance of unforgettable experiences you provided us. So THANK YOU again! Also, this trip would not have been possible without the great support of so many others along the way (see list below) – Thanks again to all of you as well.

Settling back into life here in Vermont, it will take us some time to sort through and begin sharing some of the images and video we captured. Thanks for your patience, and please stay tuned. In the meanwhile, we’re planting out the rest of our garden, tending to some other project deadlines and savoring so many great moments from the trip, while they are still fresh in our minds.

Here are a few of those moments, brought to life through our photos…

And a special thanks to: Black Diamond (Tyler M., John D. and Sarah), Onion River Sports (Kip and Chas and the crew), Smartwool, Surly Bikes, Pacific Outdoor Equipment, Patagonia, Ibex, Garmont, Skout Natural Foods, Mammut, BOB Trailers, Ortlieb USA, Smith Optics, Brunton, Pale Morning Media (Scott and Matt), VisitNorway, VisitTromso, WEND Magazine(Sami), Alf and Gunnar at Koppangen Brygger, David and Ana at Camp Kviteberg, Asbjorn Rygh at LyngenAlp.no, ski guide Jimmy Halvardsson, Per Arnerberg, Tore and Anna, our families and our friends.
