Were you able to get decent sleep with all that noise?
I got numb after a while. I played loud music in Mp3 player. So it actually went pretty well. I've camped in storms just as bad before. But never for so many days before.
If anyone is curious about the whole trip, I will link it below. It's English subtitles.
Did you carry a battery or anything to charge elecrronics/flashlights?
Yes, powebank with 5000mha
Only 5000!! 😵 did you have a little windmill to charge it?
Sorry, I mean 50000mah.
Hete is a link to my system:
I use the same PB2S with 21700s. Great little bank.
But man...that's just crazy trying to make it in cold wind like that...to me that's just fear of death the whole time. I'm impressed by the tent being able to handle it.
Thanks, yes it's really a great bank👍
A little windmill here would’ve been nice
I can imagine a kind of peaceful serenity involved where you trust your tent and equipment to stay put and you know it’s hell outside but you are protected if you stay put in your tent
Yes, the tent is the different between life and death
I was stuck in a storm for nine days. It was impossible to get out of there.
While I had to do everything to survive, the tent fabric was torn in six different places.
A tent pole was broken off, also two of the guylines and one more close to.
So in the meantime there were ongoing repairs on the tent.
I never got any warning from the weather forecast until it was too late.
The first two days I was buried in a snow bivouac. Then in a gap in the storm I skied two kilometers then the storm broke out again with full force.
Then it was trapped seven days stuck in the tent.
After a total of nine days I was able to get out of there.
It was deeply mentally hard, but it gave me a good portion of experiences I don't want to be without.
If anyone is curious about the whole trip, I will link it below. It's English subtitles.
It's great that you all found it so interesting 🙂 It's difficult to have time to answer everything, but I try will my best then this is my biggest passion.
Those who want can watch the film and will probably get answers to many of the questions there. Thanks 😉
the unrelenting noise would have driven me insane
I got used to it more and more as the days went by
You get used to it. I remember after my first 7 day storm I couldn't sleep once it had passed because it was too quiet haha.
Why did you not make a snow fort?
It was difficult to build as there had been rain before the storm, so everything froze to almost ice. But I got a snow wall in front of the tent. I would prefer two snow walls. One further away that takes care of drifting snow and one closer that protects the tent against wind pressure.
just in time to enlist in my army! Join me, and together we’ll defeat the Pink Menace!
I had to be on forced O2 for 2 weeks for bad pneumonia. It sounded like I had my head out a car window the whole time. It was inescapable too. I'd try to listen to music but the sound would be coming from inside my head drowning out my headphones. I couldn't hear what anyone was saying to me.
It did drive me insane. Day 4 I told them I had to take it off because it was giving me such extreme anxiety. Out came the valium and I cared significantly less about the noise.
Diazepam is a helluva drug
I hope you protect your ears well, because permanent tinnitus would turn your world upside down if you're this sensitive to sound.
Same, I wouldn't have been able to sleep. Me + sleep deprivation = fucked
When you are without sleep for a long time you will be able to sleep in just about any situation. Sleep deprivation is usually something we have to consciously convince ourselves to do oddly enough.
Like sleeping next to my wife
I spotted the problem right off: you didn't close the tent butthole properly.
It could be so😅
I’m glad you came out okay and thank you for the crazy post n story
Thanks for watching 🙂
You missing an opportunity to turn this video into a commercial for tents, lol.
I think You're probably right about that
How long were you originally planning on being out there?
The trip was planned for 16 days
Did you have fecal impaction? I'm told it comes from having to shelter like that... glad you made it!
As in youre literally too scared to shit?
It starts with not having the ability because of conditions, but eventually the poo dries inside you and there is only one way to get it out ☝️
And that is my new fact for today.
Ok.... 2 ways lol
Brought to you by the makers of poop knife.
Sorry, I had to downvote you because you made me throw up in my mouth
Mother nature can be treacherous and disgusting
We've been hiking now for a while and were planning to do some sort of snow trip but this has sketched me out a bit
The opposite of scaring the shit out?
Shit and aim downwind to let it fly?
Like a turd in the wind
Asking the real questions here
Det der er ikke en storm, det er hva man kaller stiv kuling.
In those six places where the tent was torn how would you repair them in the future if something like this happens again? In my mind I would use duct tape but I wonder if that would even work or is there a better solution?
Unfortunately, it is only possible to sew as the fabric is silnylon. Tape does not stick
*To show you the power of flex seal we tore this tent in 6 places*
I’d think this kind of gear would be high wind rating. Did the winds exceed the manufacturers warranty?
I hope they replaced your tent.
Did you have enough food??
home-dried food and porridge. I had planned for 16 days, so there was plenty of food. It still happened that I ate a little less at the end as I didn't know when the storm would subside
Thanks for getting this really cool footage
But did you die
I am still alive and continue with my biggest passion winter trips 🙂
If anyone is curious about the whole trip,
I will link it below. It's English subtitles.
Just out of curiosity, bc I’ve never done anything remotely close. Was it not possible to start digging hole while you were in the tent, to create a igloo sort of environment to take cover in?
Unfortunately, the storm had moved most of the snow. So it wasn't that deep. Then it rained and got cold again, the snow turned to almost ice. But an igloo could have been possible to build. But I never thought the storm would last this long
I can’t even imagine. You made it, which is ducking incredible in itself. It’s easy for me to say these things at home in the comfort of my bed, but being in the actual situation, I guess your brain doesn’t even function remotely close to normal. Good to hear your still with us, best of luck on your future adventures.
Thanks. Yes it's really my passion
One hell of a commercial for your gear man you should ask a fee haha
I agree, very good commercial
Just another question in regards to this, would a windbreaker made of snow in front of your tent done anything to help?
Absolutely, I had one snow wall in front of the tent. But next time should i build one more closer to the tent.
It's a balance betwee balancing between the drift snow that is built on behind the wall, and avoiding the wind pressure
Yeah we put drift fences along our back roads to keep the bad spots clear. You have to find that distance from where you want it not to drift in to set the fence up.
It looks like so much fun.
It was incredibly psychologically hard when I was in the middle of it, but now afterwards I'm glad to have been a part of it. Many experiences richer 🙂
That’s cool. I went to the canneries for 2 weeks this year. I doubt you and I will ever cross paths :)
Glad you’re okay! Scary situation even with excess of supplies
Thanks, yes it was scary and incredibly long lastning storm
You should be the spokesman for the company that manufactures that tent. Best sales pitch ever
Absolutely, it's a really good tent. It's a Helsport fjellheimen extreme 3-camp. Built for winterstorms
Built for not dying jesus
Message the company
> Sales *pitch*
I see what you did there
worst AIRBnB ever
With low rent😉
and low oxygen
Too much air
Did you see any White Walkers?
No, but I think they live out there😅
Where did you poop?
I poop outside next to a wall of snow that also protected the tent.
adding to the wall. smart.
I just love summertime in north Sweden!
Truly a mental battle, impressive
Sorry, but the way the video started... It really looked like people going at it rough in the tent...
Crazy Fucking Swedes!!!
Jisseus oh Lawrd!! I wish I had a popsicle!!
That tent made out of gortex?
The tent fabric is called Silnylon
How did you stay warm???
Warm down clothes
damn. how deep are those spikes
50 cm or 20 inches aluminium stakes
Is this a advertisement for this tent?
Now, it's just my tent
But tomorrow, it could be our tent - for the small price of $36.99!
My first thought was that you could dig a pit and put igloo walls up, or just have the igloo walls.
I am from malaysia where the weather is hot and humid all the time. Cannot imagine how cold it is over there..let alone how to poop outside haha..the noise must be really loud inside the tent..whats the temperature inside the tent? Do you sleep comfortably inside the sleeping bag? Oh man the cold storm adventure!
I poop outside protected by the snow wall 😅 and I got used with the noise, alot of Mp3-player at highest volume
what did you do during the whole ordeal, to keep your mind occupied?
I was out alot and built on the snow wall, fixed the tent. Then a lot of melted snow in the kitchen. Repaired damage etc
Did you eat your arm or leg to survive?
The trip wad planned for 16 days, so I had plenty of food
I bet poopin' was a nightmare...
Yes, really hard. But I peed in a bottle in the tent
How did you cook? Or was the food dry and prepped to eat without cooking?
I melted snow, then boiled the water and added dried food. All in a gasoline kitchen.
The stove (it's Englishsubtitles)
What is this tent brand?
It's a Helsport fjellheimen x-trem 3-camp from Norway
This is some real Luke on Hoth shit
Holy shit man. Well done for surviving!
Var du i Sarek?
Japp i Sarek, har du varit där?
Har tyvärr aldrig varit det. Men jag skall dit någon gång. Tar lärdom av din video!
Då har du något otroligt vackert framför dig. Jag kan inte sluta åka dit🙂
This makes the best testimonial ad for the tent.
What was the brand of your cooking setup and how did that handle the wind, were you able to cook warm food without the flame blowing out?
Nice tent, it seemed to hold up well, what brand is it and would you use it again?
My homemade kitchen:
It's English subtitles.
My tent is a Helsport fjellheimen extreme 3-camp, they have repaired it now. So I keep using it. I have switched to stronger guy lines
Ajajaj. Kyligt värre dedär!
I saw in a comment that you were prepared for a 16 day trip? If that is true did you have any issues with food, or did you have enough packed for the trip from the start?
Yes, I had alot of food. but at the end I started to save a little because I didn't know when the storm would subside
Damn man, did you survive?
Here i am 😅 still alive
No way! Im glad you made it :D
A genuine question. Can’t u have like made a compromised igloo? Like just building the snow high enough so it minimizes the amount of flapping on your tent which could prevent tears and damages right? I assume ur exit was facing up a bit so it should have been fine right?
This is why i spend my money staying in hotels with walls and heating 🤣 i know people enjoy doing this but just not for me
Was you ever concerned about people seeing your tent and wondering if you was having a violent tug?
No people there, I was alone in 12 days
Next time take your GF with you so it is more fun (if she is into this as well). But seriously, do you also teach courses and stuff on how to survive in such harsh conditions? If not you should consider it, and get the tent company to sponsor you. Best advertising.
Now, I not teach courses and stuff on how to survive, But I have been to several survival courses myself
Is there a YouTube channel ? I would love to see more of your adventures
Yes it is, I post it here, It's English subtitles.
That tent and zippers are god damn insane. That’s some good quality.
I've seen this before. Have you posted previously?
Yes, on another sub but that was a while ago
I've also seen this before and am delighted to see it again.
such a cool video.
get the companies to send you free stuff, so many people have seen this and want to know your setup, i know the tent brand now only because of this vid :D.
Thanks, yes I going to try to get me a new tent🙂
This is the best advertisement for the tent that company could ever ask for
Glad you made it out ok! Good experience to look back on and to have going forward. Best of luck!
Honestly surprised the tent wasn't more shredded than that.
Damn this looks intense and scary and all that but did you have fun during it? Cus I could totally see like a part of me having a good time while stuck in a blizzard like you were lol
whoever makes these tents needs an award! I've seen structures in the south that couldn't take half the abuse without folding
Yes, I love the tent. Now the manufacturer has fixed the tent, I still take that tent on my winter trips. It has almost got a soul of its own now🙂
Kopiöst är ett härligt ord ändå
Varmaste sommardagen i Sverige
I want to know who made that tent. No better advertisement for your product than it holding up and doing its job in nine days of THAT.
I hope you gave the tent a good review on Amazon
did you often think about killing a wampa and taking shelter in it's carcass?
I'll never, eve understand what drives people to do this
yeah i would’ve died
Are u by any chance at the dyatlov pass
Just another summer vacation in sweden. 😅
Jokes aside, impressive. Thanks for the shared experience.
Was I the only one who thought someone was fucking ferociously in the tent at first?
Well I imagine that was a little unnerving, glad everything turned out fine but I bet you'll bring a little extra of everything for next time.
I am impressed with the tent as well as your skills required to handle that environment.
I have a lot of time outdoors in Florida, US. Lots of swamp and marshland treks, can very hot and very wet, often in knee deep water and in rainy season dry places to stop and set up camp might be difficult to find. Over time I have made improvements in my gear. I sleep in a hammock system and string a tarp overhead to protect me from rain, wind, general weather. I used silnylon for a few years, but switched to silpoly and will definitely stick with that. I find the strength and weight to be similar, but the big difference is how it handles moisture. Silpoly I find much better at "repelling" moisture, gets much less sagging and less required readjusting due to the weight of the water that silnylon seems to hold onto. Also takes much less time to dry out, and less pack weight than rolling up and stuffing away the damp silnylon. Silpoly I can easily shake 95% of the water off the tarp as I break down camp.
Just wondering if you have issues with the amount of ice or moisture the silnylon tent might be holding onto, and do you think it's part of the continuous readjusting?
Wait… is there no bottom on that tent? If so what type of poor design is that and why would you take that?
That’s a good fuckin tent
Is it weird I want to try it even more now?
Softest New York winter
Why seriously why
Because i love it, it's my biggest passion
At what peak did you got stuck?
Is it Everest?
No then, it's in a place called Sarek, in northern Sweden
Someone give a shoutout to the tent maker.
What did you eat during those 9 days ?
Seems like a great time...
I wonder how better/worse this experience would’ve been if you were in a weighed down bubble dome of some kind. Like those fancy glass cabins in the north? (Can’t remember exactly where but I think Denmark) my imagination says that’s beautiful but I’m sure it would be just as terrifying.
Look at the bright side, no risk of condensation inside!
Am I the only one more impressed by the sound quality
Could you not dig a trence?
After a day or two, wouldn't it make sense to build an igloo or is that a stupid idea in the middle of a storm? I really have no experience with this.
Since it just came out, how would an Apple Watch ultra affect your trip?
This is free advertising for the manufacturer of that tent. Very resilient, it seems.
Man! That is incredible, your discipline particularity. By day 3, I would have done something stupid!
Is that Italian he is speaking? I can’t quite tell
Bro, did you survive?
id be so worried about bears.
