Get yourself a IML (International Mountain Leader)…

October is running fast, and we are soon in November. This week has been hectic. Now the IML training in Sweden has started. I arrived to Enaforsholm in Sunday afternoon, and at 08.30 the training with supervision from two members of UIMLA techical group started. Day one the focus was on navigation. The conditions has changed a lot since the reconnaisence, a snowlayer of 40cm was covering the ground. We adapt to the circumstances, but the training was done as expected anyway. The evening was spend on weather forcast and understanding of how the weather can be predicted. Day two it was the technology that was in focus. Day three it was rivercrossing among emergency bivouacing. After lunch it was time for the two days expediton. With a interesting start with micro navigation in dark, I think all was on their toes. Late in night, the group ended up to the place for the camp. Fast the ten tent went up. The next morning the navigation training kept on. Also a lecture about medicine etc. take ita place in a windshelter (all participant with face mask of course) At six a clock the next campsite was in seight and all got their tent up as fast as the day before. Friday morning we started the hike towards Valadalen. With Lunndorren and Harjangsmountains in the fund, would be a better ending of the training. Five very intensive days, full with knowledge and pratical training. Summing up as one of the best week in life I would say. And to be with friends with the same values of it, marvelous. So from me, get yourself a IML for your guiding or start your own training for becoming a IML certification…I think that was all for today. Tired, and sort of empty feeling. Missing the group, the mountain environment. But happy to get Italian coffee…

See ya soon…
