    I had some misfortune with my health, but now i try to setup a bushcraft school in Norway and i need help with building a good path till the waterfalls, help with building base-camps on the property that is 5000 mål big with mountains lakes and forrest and river, in the future building log- or of grit cabins a six-corned cabin with fire place, setup parachute camp etc , but for now most the paths , a bridge and setup good fens with the wood we find in my forrest, i can teach or being thought how the things going to be done. i tried to get it done on my own but it is growing a bit above me. 2019 will be focused on building a type of prospector tent cabins, with materials we can find in nature and mixed with what we can find. and improve an outdoor toilets system with a bush-shower and a sauna. it all will be not heavy heavy work but it will be fun.

    i live up in the mountains of Valdres, not to far from me are the famous Jotunheimen and bitihorn where the snow is on top the whole year, there is the biggest open museum in Fagernes etc. etc. i have an old but charming house, that needs some tlc, but there are two bedrooms and a shared shower, you can setup your camper, tent or teach you to build a A frame with a rope matras, or help me to build a rustiek off grit cabin on the site where you can stay in
