Yesterday Johan and I checked in at million star hotel. No clouds, nice fire and good food. Today we took for me a new route around the lake and I took the opportunity to swim in the cold lake before going home.

What do you do when you finished your job and it’s dark outside? Li and I set out with backpacks including all our gear for a night out in the woods. We ended up running 29km. Living in the moment and in the field of light made from my headlight is pure soul food.

Yesterday evening me and a friend grabbed our gear and ran until midnight. We slept under a tarp and early morning we worked our way back to town and work. If you're interested I.O organise micro adventures around Gothenburg for you.
I’ve heard that you’re big, heavy and mostly up for no good but I would say the opposite! Well you’re not light but you’re stable and durable. When I tell people about a workhorse I talk about you. You always take care of my gear and if for any reason it would weigh over our comfort zone you still carry it with pride. We’ve been together for almost ten years by now and both you and I have had good and horrible endless days.. you’re mine and I will always be yours. We both have more miles in us and…
This weekend I participated in a event with Friluftsfrämjandet. I mainly talked about backpacks and helped people with their packs for a more personal fit. I also helped out with knots and fire steel practice. Fun day!
Warm, Dry and Fed. Why do I always teach people to think about this and why is it important? Please write your best tip! ↟ The image is from Fjällräven Classic 2018. I walked with a group from Taiwan.
Yesterday evening when we closed the store I tied my running shoes and grabbed my 25L backpack. I ran from city center to a lake just outside of town. It took me approximately 1 hour to run there. Simon was waiting with hammocks, fire and food. This morning we woke up and took the bus back to work. ❤️

Måns and I during Fjällräven Classic Sweden 2018. We only met briefly before our seven days of guiding with a group from Taiwan. Doing everything together for more than a week can be hard but we did more than great and so did our group.
We take photos as a return ticket for when Elsa is older and as a way for us to remember our adventures. Last night we spent in a shelter with a friend we met through Instagram some time ago. The hot summer days are over and so is also the fire ban. We enjoyed a good dinner cooked over the fire, talked about kids, family and things we did in the past.
The right of public access. In Sweden “allemansrätten” is a right granted by the constitution of Sweden. The right to have access to nature comes with responsibility to respect nature and animal life. The golden rule of “allemansrätten” is ”Do not disturb, do not destroy”.
I’m here watching the beautiful mountain peaks from a distance. Before I felt the urge to run there as fast as possible, to be there and take it all in, to stand on all the peaks with a big smile and visit the valleys that I could see from them. Today I have a different feeling! I know I feel the urge to climb the peaks because where I am right know is the right place to be. I feel good, I have the beautiful scenery in front of me and I’m already out doing things that I love. I…
Elsa likes her new sleeping bag. Less then two weeks until our family adventure! Elsa has slept in her down suit from Patagonia on our microadventures and it has worked great, easy to adjust temperature by zipping up and down and in addition she can’t kick it off while sleeping. For this trip we’ve complemented the suit with a kids size sleeping bag from Haglöfs (110cm). The two can be used in combination for colder nights and in addition the down suit works as an extra layer of insulation during lunch breaks etc.
Emelie’s Kajka 65W is also packed for the first time for this trip and our equipment list is written. Elsa appreciate the book from Calazo in her own way. Today we will visit the city center for the last preparations and Daniel will get his backpack ready for 7 days as a guide at Fjällräven Classic.
Let’s go on a family adventure in the mountains. We carry most of our stuff including food for 17 days. While planning it sounded so easy.. I know different know. The hardest part is done, everything is in the pack (or hanging on it..). Now it’s time for the second stage; unpack, evaluate, minimize and repack. Still a couple of days to get everything together and get tuned. Game on!
Inspirational or crazy. I guess it’s personal and we all have our own limits. I’m full of energy and positive thinking most of the time but I also have my doubts and sometimes it would be easier to do something else during our vacation. From the beginning we thought about a 85L bag for me and 38L for Emelie but the more we planed and got closer to the dates we realized that 100L for me and 65L for Emelie is the volume we need for this trip. I’ve done a lot of adventures before and during the trips I’ve…
