Mountain safety and challenges…

Another week has past. the training has been good six workouts so far and 270 workouts totally so far this year:-). When it comes to challenge my self I have take a step. I need to train the balance and the ankle, sp what can be better than ..longboard:-).

In a article in the Swedish magazine ”outside”, Morgan Johansson a writer write about the safety in the mountain environment. That we are to cautious, and bring to heavy and to much stuff. (He has also wright the book; Hiking featherweight sv. Vandra fjäderlätt). He means that we should be more careful by the travel to the mountain environment, due to it is more car accidents then mountain related accidents. He means that we got to many forefingers point on safety and security. He got a point, but when it comes to safety from my side there will be no ability to cut the corners.  we can also hear and read in the news of people that need to be rescued, related to the fact of lack of skills or the right equipment. Today it is so accessible to get into the mountains, and having good equipment cant compensate having good skills. So go up in the mountain environment and get skilled, and use a mountain leader or a mountain guide to become more skilled. That is what you pay for. The knowledge of years in the mountain environment, the knowledge of the specific area and equipment..And you, never trust a guy with shiny gear:-)

Next year there will be three tours in the Chamonix area. Between the 8th and 21th of august. So if you interested read about it under news and updates.
