The winter that was not

Not much activity here on the blog lately. The most miserable winter for a long time is to blame, as well as some health issues (still not resolved) following the worst flu in my adult life.

Over the hills and far again



On the way home from the bikepacking trip in Vindelfjällen two years ago we started planning the next similar outing. Fairly quickly Jämtland came up and the idea was to go last year. However, last September I was personally forbidden to be away from work due to an important audit and we were unable to reschedule it and the trip was postponed with a year. It isn't easy to find common time when everyone is middle aged and have lots of other responsibilites. Last week it we finally managed to go there, though.

Söderskär trip


I participated in a kayak club tour to Söderskär south of Borgå/Porvoo as assistant guide. The target of the trip was the Söderskär lighthouse.

Kallan



The area north of Mikkelsörarna is pretty much mare incognita for me, so a trip there was to be expected. I even got a native friend to join me for a weekend trip.
