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.

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.

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…

🇬🇧 At home time is precious. Out here, I have cut everything unimportant so I have bought back time. I have as much of it as I need. See you out there on a trail somewhere. Stay safe friends.
