I made it! It wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be so that means that anyone can do it.
There were a few days when I wasn’t so keen on going out, mostly due to the weather, negative something degrees with wind or being really tired. But as soon as I got out, poof, the negative feeling was gone.
I and Jon was out on a 7 hour hike yesterday and during those hours we covered roughly 20km. A days work!
We went on the John Bauer trail and the after a few hours went on our own little side track to make a nice circle back to our car.
We were hoping for some rain and heavy winds to test out some new rain gear but at first we didn’t get any but that changed after a few hours and then we got some nice down pour for about an hour or so. I thought I had packed my rain pants but I put those back in the closet and opted for some stuff to make pancakes instead (which we never did, haha!). So I just had to make due with my rain jacket which preformed very well through out the day. Must say that I like my Patagonia Torrentshell rain set very much. I’ve chosen the Patagonia jacket as my outer layer instead of a GoreTex jacket.
This is photo is taken at the end of the day. I’ve got no rain pants but I’ve got pancakes in my backpack 🙂 The city of Jönköping in the background. And if you look closely you can see a small hight on the high ground to the top left and that’s basically where I live.
