"Moosing around the world" Personal Page by Rusket


My moose is called Rolv Helge, but we use only his second name, and pronounce the french way, you know, without the H. It then becomes Elge, and elg in norwegian means moose :-) Elge travelled around the world on top of my backpack for nine months 2001 / 2002.

Where is Elge in the first picture? He was the photographer, offcourse :-)


Caught in the act!


Elge is very kind. Each time one of us felt tired, he volountered as a pillow :-) Like here, waiting for a train in Cleveland Ohio.

Moose in sunset

In older times "every" home had to have a picture of a moose in the sunset. This is my version, Elge sunbathing on a lovely evening on Waikiki Beach.

Elge in the Pacific ocean

Elge and his human brother on the boat going to Abaiang. The waves were high, and poor Elge got seasick :-( He totally agreed with his brother in going by air on the return trip.

Elge in Africa

Elge was pleased to see some of his distant african relatives; impalas.

Scary moose

Most of the children and som of the adults in the masai village were afraid of Elge! But this woman and her little daughter were brave enough to get photographed together with us :-)
