Hello Benni
What an amazing spirit you are .
Visualising you alone on a glacier looking for an exit point is beyond words.

Benni saved me from a fall by diving to my rescue with no thought of his own safety. He got right there with me , and stopped us both rolling off the edge.
Such spine. I had never experienced such selflessness before and was left with the feeling that Benni was superhuman.

Condolences to friends and family.

CU later Benni

Dammit!

Benni was one hell of a man! I remember him getting to exit #6 in about 45 minutes, jumping and landing, then jumping OUT of the boat to swim back to Lysebotn. Here I thought Dag Atle was the strongest man in Norway, then along came Benni.

Then a hot chick who shall remain nameless had some fun with Benni, sneaking up on him during the boat ride back and pushing him overboard, fully dressed and napping. Unfortunately Benni had his wallet and cell phone in his pockets, so our hot chick had to replace some valuables, but that was AFTER Benni climbed back aboard and body slammed HER into the fjord. At least she had time to empty her pockets...

Then, because we always love to have fun, the two of them did a two-way off the side and back into Lyse Fjord.

Later, while cooking a feast for the SBK regulars, Benni and his buddy came to the staff apt. and helped with the cooking. Smart boys, those two.

It was a pleasure and a joy to have known Benni. Only the good die young...

Peace Benni, you're in the best of company now.

X O
Karen
