They call it winter…

Looks like we’re in for a rather mild winter in the Numedalslågen area . We had a few inches of snow, but after several days of +5 – 10 C, wind and rain, more or less all the snow is gone. Ser ut som det blir en relativt mild vinter i indre Vestfold i år. … Continue reading »

Approximately 15 members of the International Fario Club attended my presentation of potential destinations, when they are coming to fish salmon in Norway in 2012 or 2013.

Maja

Two months have passed, since I had to put my ten year old Wheaten terrier, Maja, to sleep. She turned out to be seriously ill, and I had no choice. Keeping her alive for our sake, was out of the question. It will take a while to get used to not having her around, and … Continue reading »
