    Written by Hendrik Morkel a great blog for any backpacking enthusiast, focusing around lightweight gear and adventures in Finland, Sweden, Norway and many other parts of Europe.

    Worth a read if you haven't already ...

    I think it is very consequent of Hendrik to set off to new goals ,especially with his young family.Also it is quite interesting to read that he is now more "open-minded" to lightweight trekking,since thinking in UL-borders can be very limiting.It´s always about the right balance and he works on it.:thumbsup:

    I believe Ken refers to the fact that Hendrik raised thousands $$$ several years ago for a kick-starter funded UL a-z video series project and has yet to deliver much.

    Understandably quite a few people were upset.

    @Robin Thanks for that.He´s one of the most respected members in the german UL-forum.For me,he always seemed to be ... greedy?!

    I have no axe to grind. I didn't contribute to the Kickstarter project but I know someone who did. He was/is pretty angry about it. There have also been some Twitter spats. As the site became more commercial and promotional, my interest waned.

    Absolutely ok ,but it was quite surprising to get this unexpected info .I don´t have any problems with him,but it is always annoying to hear stories like that (like a friend who burnt 400 quid @ o..k...ks)

    That would be great.If I am right he never made a statement on other forums too.
