Trail Angels of the Year

They provide tired, hungry and thirsty hikers with help and relief. Martin & Christina is of course the most outstanding Trail Angels of C2C 2014, but we met some other good people along the way from Kalmar to Varberg. 

Per-Erik Johansson i Brändebomåla. Our first camp was at a beautiful spot, some 26 kilometers outside Kalla Per-Erik had arranged with water, firewood and an outhouse. Big thanks!

At Grönösjön Runo Jonsson let us put up our tent just by the beautiful lake. Then we had a nice dinner, cooked by Fieldkitchen 102, and invited Runo and his wife down to our camp. Thanks for the hospitality!

Last year Irene Hildingsson and her daughter brought 50 liters of water to our camp at Hedasjön. This year Irene was ill and couldn't come, but Jörgen and I visited our favorite Trail Angel in Kosta.

Elisabeth Pettersson wasn't present in person this year (the picture is from last year), but she once again let us sleep at the local Missionskyrkans camping site by Eskilstorpasjörn. A great camp, even though it was very windy this year. Elisabeth has welcomed us back. Nice!

A friendly neighbor at Eskilstorpasjön, lost his name, brought out some AC outlets in his outhouse, so Börje, Jocke and a bunch ot others could charge our phones. A small help that means a lot when you're on the trail with your smartphone.

Nennesmo is holy ground for C2C. And of course Martin Sanell was there even this year with kanelbulle, coffee and limonade. We had a rest in his garden, while Martin's daughter Enya eyed us with amazement and some suspicion: Are these guys really lightweight..?

Lantmännen in Grimeton delivered this year, too! Coffee, bread, cakes, WC and good spirit. Ida (picture) made the coffee. She therefore has a special place in our heart.

It's great when people help with the basic things; all honor to them. :-)

Yes, Mattias, that's great and make me really happy. Especially the churches have been very kind to us.
