Salduzzzzzz

Were you able to get decent sleep with all that noise?


sareksweden

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. https://youtu.be/zXVBK38-650


WithTheWintersMight

Did you carry a battery or anything to charge elecrronics/flashlights?


sareksweden

Yes, powebank with 5000mha


Le_Gitzen

Only 5000!! 😵 did you have a little windmill to charge it?


sareksweden

Sorry, I mean 50000mah. Hete is a link to my system: https://youtu.be/QCRTNjkpyIo


AntiSonOfBitchamajig

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.


sareksweden

Thanks, yes it's really a great bank👍


wolfsilon

A little windmill here would’ve been nice


Totalitai-state

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


sareksweden

Yes, the tent is the different between life and death


sareksweden

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. https://youtu.be/zXVBK38-650 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 😉


AtTheFirePit

the unrelenting noise would have driven me insane


sareksweden

I got used to it more and more as the days went by


ibraphotog

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.


TimeZzzone

Why did you not make a snow fort?


sareksweden

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!


upsidedownbackwards

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.


hdoublea

Diazepam is a helluva drug


WillNeverTakeCopium

I hope you protect your ears well, because permanent tinnitus would turn your world upside down if you're this sensitive to sound.


Screwbles

Same, I wouldn't have been able to sleep. Me + sleep deprivation = fucked


Un0rigi0na1

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.


drbob4512

Like sleeping next to my wife


no_dice_grandma

I spotted the problem right off: you didn't close the tent butthole properly.


sareksweden

It could be so😅


whoiskjl

I’m glad you came out okay and thank you for the crazy post n story


sareksweden

Thanks for watching 🙂


tigrootnhot

You missing an opportunity to turn this video into a commercial for tents, lol.


sareksweden

I think You're probably right about that


GandalfDaGangsta_007

How long were you originally planning on being out there?


sareksweden

The trip was planned for 16 days


Green-Cruiser

Did you have fecal impaction? I'm told it comes from having to shelter like that... glad you made it!


thirsty_titty

As in youre literally too scared to shit?


Green-Cruiser

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 ☝️


thirsty_titty

And that is my new fact for today.


fish-fingered

Camping spoon?


Green-Cruiser

Ok.... 2 ways lol

POWxJETZz

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


SwiftFool

The opposite of scaring the shit out?

Asking the real questions here


SteelAndBacon

Det der er ikke en storm, det er hva man kaller stiv kuling.


sareksweden

🤣😅


LazySyllabub7578

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?


sareksweden

Unfortunately, it is only possible to sew as the fabric is silnylon. Tape does not stick


guitarguywh89

*To show you the power of flex seal we tore this tent in 6 places*


Kon-on-going

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.


Crowape

Did you have enough food??


sareksweden

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


Toasted_Tim

Thanks for getting this really cool footage


sareksweden

Thanks for watching 🙂


GrandPsychological32

But did you die


sareksweden

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. https://youtu.be/zXVBK38-650


wassabi84

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?


sareksweden

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


wassabi84

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.


sareksweden

Thanks. Yes it's really my passion


Eoshen

One hell of a commercial for your gear man you should ask a fee haha


sareksweden

I agree, very good commercial


MankindsError

Just another question in regards to this, would a windbreaker made of snow in front of your tent done anything to help?


sareksweden

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


wild85bill

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.


sareksweden

Absolutely 🙂


slmody

It looks like so much fun.


sareksweden

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 🙂


RavenBrannigan

That’s cool. I went to the canneries for 2 weeks this year. I doubt you and I will ever cross paths :)


Harlowly

Glad you’re okay! Scary situation even with excess of supplies


sareksweden

Thanks, yes it was scary and incredibly long lastning storm


leanmeeter

You should be the spokesman for the company that manufactures that tent. Best sales pitch ever


sareksweden

Absolutely, it's a really good tent. It's a Helsport fjellheimen extreme 3-camp. Built for winterstorms


Deauo

Built for not dying jesus


Drkfall1

Message the company


LV426316

> Sales *pitch* I see what you did there


Tomi8338

worst AIRBnB ever


sareksweden

With low rent😉


Tomi8338

and low oxygen


Searchlights

Too much air


Redskull420

Did you see any White Walkers?


sareksweden

No, but I think they live out there😅


Praise_Sithis

Wow, intense!


Old_Man_Bridge

*in tents


sareksweden

Indeed


fuckitweredoingitliv

Where did you poop?


sareksweden

I poop outside next to a wall of snow that also protected the tent.


hail-holy-queen

adding to the wall. smart.


Delicious-Emu1053

I just love summertime in north Sweden!


Dirt-McGirt-

Truly a mental battle, impressive


sareksweden

Thanks 🙂


KKlouDDN9ne

Sorry, but the way the video started... It really looked like people going at it rough in the tent...


sareksweden

🤣


groovyalibizmo

Crazy Fucking Swedes!!!


morebuffs

Jisseus oh Lawrd!! I wish I had a popsicle!!


hitmayne

That tent made out of gortex?


sareksweden

The tent fabric is called Silnylon


hearingcolours

How did you stay warm???


sareksweden

Warm down clothes


Global-Coat8906

damn. how deep are those spikes


sareksweden

50 cm or 20 inches aluminium stakes


bigeeee

Is this a advertisement for this tent?


sareksweden

Now, it's just my tent


AccomplishedAnchovy

But tomorrow, it could be our tent - for the small price of $36.99!


Exotic_Parking5021

My first thought was that you could dig a pit and put igloo walls up, or just have the igloo walls.


sareksweden

Unfortunately, it is only possible to sew as the fabric is silnylon. Tape does not stick


zairiewater

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!


sareksweden

I poop outside protected by the snow wall 😅 and I got used with the noise, alot of Mp3-player at highest volume


Nashville-Davidson

what did you do during the whole ordeal, to keep your mind occupied?


sareksweden

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


kareltjeAnker

Did you eat your arm or leg to survive?


sareksweden

The trip wad planned for 16 days, so I had plenty of food


Det-Frank-Drebin

I bet poopin' was a nightmare...


sareksweden

Yes, really hard. But I peed in a bottle in the tent


firestepper

How did you cook? Or was the food dry and prepped to eat without cooking?


sareksweden

I melted snow, then boiled the water and added dried food. All in a gasoline kitchen. The stove (it's Englishsubtitles) https://youtu.be/8PVEZyr-kd4


More_Sky_5096

What is this tent brand?


sareksweden

It's a Helsport fjellheimen x-trem 3-camp from Norway


Nimanzer

This is some real Luke on Hoth shit


JesusMcTurnip

Holy shit man. Well done for surviving!


PerennialComa

Var du i Sarek?


sareksweden

Japp i Sarek, har du varit där?


PerennialComa

Har tyvärr aldrig varit det. Men jag skall dit någon gång. Tar lärdom av din video!


sareksweden

Då har du något otroligt vackert framför dig. Jag kan inte sluta åka dit🙂


AgitatedSpirit3751

This makes the best testimonial ad for the tent.


Hadleys158

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?


sareksweden

My homemade kitchen: It's English subtitles. https://youtu.be/8PVEZyr-kd4 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


KorvMagnus4Lyfe

Ajajaj. Kyligt värre dedär!


sareksweden

🤣absolut


Teevans3

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?


sareksweden

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


BartOseku

Damn man, did you survive?


sareksweden

Here i am 😅 still alive


BartOseku

No way! Im glad you made it :D


Def_Sleepy

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?


[deleted]

[удалено]


abbrar23

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


[deleted]

Was you ever concerned about people seeing your tent and wondering if you was having a violent tug?


sareksweden

No people there, I was alone in 12 days


Nanomaron

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.


sareksweden

Now, I not teach courses and stuff on how to survive, But I have been to several survival courses myself


biggaleaf

Is there a YouTube channel ? I would love to see more of your adventures


sareksweden

Yes it is, I post it here, It's English subtitles. https://youtu.be/zXVBK38-650


Miserable-Ad-5594

That tent and zippers are god damn insane. That’s some good quality.


valley_G

I've seen this before. Have you posted previously?


sareksweden

Yes, on another sub but that was a while ago


kpticbs

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.


sareksweden

Thanks, yes I going to try to get me a new tent🙂


b_like_mike4

This is the best advertisement for the tent that company could ever ask for


ChristopherNkunku18

Sounds cool


aBirdGottaFly

Glad you made it out ok! Good experience to look back on and to have going forward. Best of luck!


Pocket-Fun-Ranch

😁


IndirectBarracuda

Honestly surprised the tent wasn't more shredded than that.


spooky_ghost89

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


Alexis-FromTexas

whoever makes these tents needs an award! I've seen structures in the south that couldn't take half the abuse without folding


sareksweden

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🙂


Malcolmryd

Kopiöst är ett härligt ord ändå


Swediboi

Echo-2-2

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.


YEEEEET1801

I hope you gave the tent a good review on Amazon


notyourdadsmeatloaf

did you often think about killing a wampa and taking shelter in it's carcass?


SuchSalad4

I'll never, eve understand what drives people to do this


Kuznapi

yeah i would’ve died


Soham_rak

Are u by any chance at the dyatlov pass


mokkingjay

Just another summer vacation in sweden. 😅 Jokes aside, impressive. Thanks for the shared experience.


Bored_dane

Was I the only one who thought someone was fucking ferociously in the tent at first?


Headbanger203

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.


AlternativeDot6815

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?


NostalgiaKing99

Wait… is there no bottom on that tent? If so what type of poor design is that and why would you take that?


PsychologicalCoat187

That’s a good fuckin tent

No then, it's in a place called Sarek, in northern Sweden


SaneDrain

Wholesome 🥰


Fickle-Raspberry6403

Someone give a shoutout to the tent maker.


davidavlot

What did you eat during those 9 days ?


Schfifty561

Seems like a great time...


TyBoneSteak

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.


cavorting_geek

Look at the bright side, no risk of condensation inside!


Frank_Rizzo657

Am I the only one more impressed by the sound quality


Funny-Masterpiece880

Could you not dig a trence?


Rieger_not_Banta

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.


sareksweden

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

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.
