30-Days Hiking Challenge

Alright, so here’s the deal…

I need to get hiking again and the best way is to put some positive pressure into the mix and make it a 30-days hiking challenge.
For the upcoming 30 days I’ll put my pack on and go hiking. On weekdays it’ll probably gonna be pitch black when I go out. On weekends the options are better for daylight hiking.

I have a trail that passes next to our house that I’ve hiked several times that I’ll use for the most part. We also have a hill/mountain close by that I’ve challenged myself in the past to run up to the top, it’s only 343m high but it’s a good 100m ascent that’ll kick your butt if you’re not prepared. Two ways up, the road or the stairs, you figure out which one is more interesting, haha.

This will kind of be a taste of a longer continuous hike, “thru hike” if you will. Going out everyday as long as I’m fit to do it. On Tuesdays I’m doing sports with colleagues so that equals to the hiking as it’s high-cardio stuff. Since yesterday we’ve had magnificent weather, +6C and sunny, however it’s still February here in Sweden so I suspect it can change on a whim.

The rules:

  • Minimum 5 km per day
  • Will always be done with a ‘full pack’
  • You can’t trade days, i.e. skip one and do two the next day unless sick or injured
  • Tuesdays are off unless the other activity is canceled
  • Proof of execution will be posted on Twitter using the hashtag #30DaysHC

If you want to tag along you can also post your pictures under the same hashtag on Twitter. Good luck!

It’s been awfully quiet

Is this thing still on?

It’s been quite quiet here for the past months, since May really when I completed the TGO Challenge, crossing Scotland. I could blame it on a lot of things but mostly it’s been work and I guess somewhat of a broken hiking link, not feeling it, but really wanting it.

I usually do the “big trip” during the summer holidays but now it was earlier and that has left me with fewer days off from work. Also hiking has been competing with our new vehicle, ‘The Bus’. VW California Ocean.

However I have a few projects coming up…

A photo project that’s halfway done, just need to do some writing to finish it.
Videos! Yes more of those, two long term reviews I want to do and maybe some other stuff. I’m also planning the summer trip of which destination I won’t reveal just yet. It’s mentally 90% set and I’m looking into other options as well.
In April we’ll do some exploring too with a road trip in Europe, won’t really be listed here but still, will be taking some days off to do that. If you follow me on Twitter you’ll probably be able to tag along.

A big THANK YOU is also in place. I receive a lot of e-mails via the about/contact page which I really enjoy. Sometimes it’s about gear (most of the time) and trips/maps and just general nice people from literally all over the world dropping by to saying hello.

I love it, so keep sending ’em 🙂

Happy trails!
