The group: A great gang to get sore feet and blisters together with!
Most talked about tent: Johanna Straub’s Trailstar tarp with innertent from Oookworks. Made of cuben/mesh with chikara floor.
Heaviest pack: Martin Johansson, 25 kg, including a carpet (2 kilos), not including the cheese.
Biggest misstep: Poul Kjeldgaard sank down to his thigh in the bog Store Mosse.
Lightweight breakthrough: Ulla Engberg skipped her 40 year old 2,7 kilo Fjällräven tent and bought a ordinary tarpaulin from Plastman i Västberga. Weight: 400 g. She also made a stove from a kidney bean can (and put a Trangia burner inside).
Most talked about food: Kanelbulle!
Yogier of the year 1: Martin Johansson, who first politely declined a ride with a female stranger, but later ended up at her home for dinner, shower and breakfast.
Yogier of the year 2: Ann-Sofie Ölander and Marianne van Ginhoven got Frau Röser in Järnboda to give them coffee, kanelbulle and a ride. Frau Röser had politely declined the yoging of other hikers just an hour earlier!
Keenest hiker: Ulla Engberg, who took a round trip around Trälsmo and saw the same street sign three times. With the detour she added at least 3 km to a day when we walked 37,4 km. Some just can't get enough…;-)
Fashion statement 1: Marianne’s cuben fibre fetish. From mittens to tent...and everything in-between.
Best piece of advice: ”Always prewash your dirty socks before putting them in the machine” (Carsten Jost).
Media star: Allan kept the reporters busy. Now he's going to be featured in a Swedish horse magazine.
