"We were in the middle of a two week epic trip. Driving a '94 Corolla around the jagged, arctic, and fabled Lofoten Islands. Camping, climbing, and eating all sorts of strange "Norwegian sea" fare along the way.

Throughout our trip, my brother and I kept coming back to one specific quote one of us had read in a soggy, tattered, broken spined mountaineering book we'd brought along: "To live only for some future goal is shallow. It's the sides of the mountain that sustain life, not the top".

After waking up atop Reinebringen, and enjoying some excellent Norwegian kaffe, we realized it might be the first time either of us could seriously argue to the contrary."

Great camp spots can be anywhere, even in full view of civilization. Blake sent us this photo of his setup looking over Santa Barbara and we hope his lady-friend was as psyched about it as we are.

Lights, Camera, Action

Sometimes, traces of civilization can become impressive scenery out in the distance from an exposed camp spot.

Westfjords

Overlanding is one of the more badass ways to find a campspot in the Westfjords of Iceland.
