FLBMX put on a second annual Florida Gold video contest to go along with the skatepark contest series and we decided to participate this year. So this is pretty different from our typical style of videos. Music and bike riding. That's it. No sleeping in cars. No setting up tents in illegal places. Just a BMX video filmed all around Florida.

So this turned out to be more of a hiking documentary than a normal video. I ended up just narrating behind the camera while we hiked for 11 hours. This hike is kind of the reason this whole trip started. We saw photos of people sitting on the edge of this famous cliff (Trolltunga) and decided to book tickets to Northern Europe to see it for ourselves. We started out in Karlstad, Sweden where we stayed with Danny's friend for a couple of days after leaving Stockholm. Then we started our 3 day mission to Norway. We slept for 2...

So this is clearly part 2 of this Whipsnake trip. We once again show up in the pitch black and set up camp in the dark. This was Tristan and Zach's first trip up here so they were beyond overwhelmed by the insanity of this place.

We rode all day, took a tour of his art scattered throughout the woods, and eventually started...

So we went to Whipsnake again. (The hidden skatepark in the middle of nowhere in South Carolina with no address or phone service.) But the video was so long that we split it into two. So there's technically no footage of Whipsnake in this video. But we did stop at a park in Georgia that has a stair set and several handrails in the middle of a bowl corner. We also slept at Zach's Grandma's house (again) and rode another incredible park the next day.

We made it to Stockholm first try. We're getting a lot better at this whole not missing our bus thing. We built the bikes and dragged our bags a couple miles to the closest skatepark in hopes of finding somewhere to leave our luggage. Sure enough, we met someone while riding that offered to hold our bags in a warehouse while we were in town. Scandinavian hospitality strikes again. Danny and Viktor flew into town later in the day and we stumbled upon another skatepark, ate free Moroccan food, and slept in a public park before heading out to Karlstad...
