This month Mark and Jonathan chat it up early in the morning (for them) with Jonas Haug, Steiner Bukve Witsø, and Didrik Abrahamsen from Amok Equipment in Norway. We chat with them about their experience bringing such a unique product online and how they develop it. After that, they discuss some of their experience camping and living in Northern Europe.  Finally, everyone shares a little bit of their memories and talks about camping equipment that they’ve been using for years.

After chatting with the guys from Amok, Jonathan and Mark discuss knots vs. “bling” for dealing with the age-old question, how will you hang your hammock and tarp?
