Overcast: Padjelanta -12

New week, new trail companion. The usual gang of R+V and yours truly was broken up this year as R+V decided to take a road trip to the USA in July. So for this year’s longer trek, it ended up being me and Miss C only, as we aimed for Padjelanta and the Padjelanta trail for 6 days.

There and Back Again: Katterjåkk -12

First trek of the year was to be a short one with Miss T. She’s a outdoors champion that recently moved away from Stockholm, and St Jacobs Chamber Choir, to work in Kiruna in north of Sweden. And for reasons I can’t really remember we’d talked about me coming up to do a short trek together. Said and done! The plan, somewhat [...]

Ending the Winter Hiatus

December was kind of full. Not only was work piling up, but I’m also involved in a chamber choir and various vocal ensembles. So with 12 concerts booked, including a short tour in Holland, I had to fight to keep the running in the calendar. This post continues at The Run Smiley Collective, go there and finish it!

Ammarnäs -> Hemavan 2011

A new year, a new part of Kungsleden. The crew this year was V+R together with little sister C, but also an old acquaintance in the form of Gustav who went with us a short hike a few years back, and now graced us with his presence again. This was to be a warm-up for a longer trek into Sarek later this year. However, for various reasons the [...]

Saltoluokta -> Kvikjokk 2010

This year we continued our quest to do the entire length of Kungsleden. And when I say “we” I mean R+V (as usual, I’ll have to come up with better nic’s for you guys) and V’s little sister, miss C. As usual we really looked forward to it. Actually, V had been doing lists and planned the stuff since… er… well, last year I guess.Our [...]

Backpost: Abisko -> Kebnekaise 2009

I was about to set down this years trekking memories when I realized I have not documented all of last years trips. Oh my… So I’d better do that then eh? My memory being what it is, this is the trip me, V+R did between Abisko and Kebnekaise last year. We’d decided to Kungsleden one bit after another and also that we go south, [...]
