My Virtual Outdrr Birth

By alecf720 2013.08.07 in Uncategorized

Dear Readers,

This is my first post on the outdrr.com network. I look forward to contributing my news and views on everything related to the outdoors, and, of course, reading the other great blogs here. To briefly introduce myself: my name is Alec Forss, an Englishman living in Stockholm, and an active canoeist, hiker, hillwalker, forager, and wilderness advocate. I am also a freelance writer who specializes in using words, photos, and audio to tell compelling stories of nature, people, and adventure.

I have been fortunate to have spent time in some of the most alluring wild places left in our world. I have canoed in the Yukon in northern Canada, spent months exploring the far north of Scandinavia, and climbed peaks in Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. While these have all been great adventures, I also enjoy a simple stroll through the countryside and finding something green to add to my dinner.

See you on the trail,




I have always had a strong wanderlust and interest in the natural world and other cultures. From hiking as a boy through the jungles of Borneo, collecting fossils on the Swedish island of Öland, and visiting the primeval forests of Bialowieza on the Polish-Belorussian border, I developed a passion for nature - and especially the world’s remaining wild places.
