The Kungsleden Trail, Sweden. By Max Maloney

Hi Mont Team,

I have recently returned from my trip to Sweden hiking the Kungsleden trail and would like to share some of the photos with you guys. I am a big fan of Mont and rave on about it here over in Europe. I am currently studying in Germany; due to COVID I haven’t been able to get out too much so this trip was extra special.

Some trip details.
The Kungsleden (kings trail) is a hiking trail in far north Sweden which starts in Abisko and traverses 440km over mountains, rivers and forests finishing in Hemavan. Many reindeer roam high in the mountains which are bred by the local Sámi communities. Those willing to forage will find an abundance of mushrooms and berries adding some freshness to one’s hiking cuisine.

We were hiking in late summer (August/September) and experienced a bag full of weather; snow, sleet, rain and sometimes sunshine. Typical mountain weather I guess. The remoteness and open space reminded me what I miss about Australia. As Europe is quite densely populated it’s not always easy to find awesome remote nature. One pro is that the trial heads are all accessible by public transport.

Mont gear that featured on the trip includes my Mont firefly tent, Austral rain jacket and Sun Hat. Kept me dry and warm.

With warmest regards from Leipzig, Germany.

Max Maloney

Australian longicorn borers are known worldwide for their ability to aggressively infest eucalypt plantations. In Australia, too, longicorn outbreaks have struck plantations in Tasmania, Victoria and Queensland. By contrast, outbreaks of longicorns are rare in native eucalypt forests. Why? Well, it’s not clear, but the current theory is that to be successful, longicorn populations must develop in forests that are persistently drought-stressed. In plantations, a single species is often planted over a varying landscape that is, in some cases, too dry. Native eucalypt forests, however, generally comprise numerous species leading to a patterned landscape of species that is more resilient to stress.

Over the last couple of days I have had a couple of short forays into Mount Field National Park. This magnificent park has landscapes that range from temperate rainforest with beautiful waterfalls to extensive alpine areas with some stunning mountain topography. Mount Field National Park, along with Freycinet National Park, were both declared national parks in 1916, making them the oldest national parks in Tasmania.

Fall protection needs to be fast and easy to setup to ensure it is used when it is needed. The right gear will only add a small amount of time to your site setup, stay out of your way while working, and be easy and intuitive to use. The first part of your Fall Protection System, the anchors, can be make or break for the efficiency of the system as a whole. Read more below about choosing the best anchors for your next job.
