Summer time…

So it is summer again. The good thing with summer is that we can relax and plan the upcoming adventures and challenges. From my side the workout has been a bit more of cardiovascular. This because of the entry to tough Viking obstacle race in August. So the arms has been challange of lots of meters of monkey bars…So one workout at the extremefabriken and also one military obstacle track. But a lot of trail running as well…But more obstacle workout is up to come…

New clothes for testing will be the Patagonia Nano puff vest. A real good layer two vest. With its prima loft layer it is easy to bring, light and still warm. For us who likes vests it is a real good Product.

Poles from Black Diamond has often been a good complement, especially when trail or sky running. The Distance z poles will be tested at the moment. This Product is for Three season, and not for Winter is my view. They are very light, and easy to use. I will use them for running.

The story of theis week will be from Jamtland again. The year

 

Jamtlandia Enafors, at this time the hotel was opened, and we could by soft drinks and ice Cream. 

1980. Ten Young guys in the 15th, and there leader a 55 year old ex paratrooper shall do there first mountain hike. The night train starts at lunch-time, and will arrive in the morning at the Enafors Railway station. I look out from the train window. The view makes me excited, expectant and tingly. We started the journey directly from the train. The trail to Snasahogarna and Ulvatjarn was the target. The first nigt we spend in the tent just below the Silverfallet. A nice shieling with the sound of the waterfall. The next morning we get up early, the sun was really hot but we took us up to Snasahogarna and to a Plateau Close to Getryggen. When the tent was up and the dinner was done, we climb the peak of Getryggen. Nisse our leader said -Do that you boys I will be sitting here and waiting for you. When we arraived to the tent Three hours later he was sitting outside his tent and eating a choclate bite like eating  a sandwich. The next day we checked the map and started the hike for Sylarna. A couple of hours later, we arrived to the Place of the old Mountain station were we pitched our tents. Some of us, Went to the mountain station to buy some softdrinks and candy(at this time there has been a fire at the Mountain station so the only Place that was left, was Klappen as you can see at the Picture. So there was a Little kiosk were we could by some Coca cola) . Afterwords we took a bath in the sylriver. Cold and refreshing. The next day we startet early though we have a long Days hike. This dady the Blahammaren mountain station was the target of the day. Everything was smooth until we reached the mountain station. Nisse our leader was very quiet, and we was a bit concerned over him. Early next morning, he looked at us with a Pearl of sweat over his lip and forehead and said: -boys, I Think you can call the helicopter now. We run up to the mountain station(at this time there was no cellular phones) and asked them to call the rescue helicopter. our leader has kidney stones. The helicopter comes and we had to reach out our own way dawn back to Enafors. The sun was shining, it was mid July and we Went down to Sevedholm and Rundhogen, and walked the E14 to Enafors were we pitched the tent across Enaforsholm. This was my first trip in the mountain, and there were more to come…But I have to thank Nisse for bringin us up to the area. It will Always be in my heart and soul…

See ya soon…
