The last two weeks I’ve been working with the Norwegian army in Setesdalsheiene in the southern part of Norway. I’ve been with Hærens Krigsskole (Military Academy) and its been normal winter courses based on Nils Faarlund’s and Norges Høgfjellsskole’s philosophy.
We had very good weather both weeks, cold and stable temperatures with little or no wind. Even though it’s been two weeks of work the day’s was never hard and it felt more or less like recreation, at least for the body. Setesdalsheiene has Norways most southern population of wild rain deer and we was lucky and met them many times. We believed that we once counted around 400, but it’s hard to tell.
