    Hi, im Anders from Norway. Im new to lightweight backpacking. Looking to get som advice and maybe share some advice :) Im currently undergoing the transform to lightweight backpacking.

    Most of my hikes are at the westcoast of Norway as i live in the city of Stavanger. The picture is from one of my hikes there. As for 2016 im going for a summertrip to the Lomsdal Visten National park. I love troutfishing so my to rods are always with me.

    my goals are to go light but also comfortable.

    Looking forward to get to know you all :)

    Hi Anders.

    I'm relatively new to the forum too and I've found it a great place to challenge my thinking on 'going lighter.'. There's some great stuff in the threads.

    Hi Anders - welcome. I'm a newbie too and have found lots of great advice and information here.

    I'm working towards being a full-on trail and trout bum! I do a little bit of Tenkara fishing but going ultralight means I can now pack a full Western fly outfit :D and still be light & comfortable!
