I got my Hanwag Alaska today… The very first impression was that they were a bit on the smaller side but then after trying with a variety of different socks I came to the conclusion that they fit me… Went to try them out at a short trekking path (Tornberget)… Walked about 4 km on mostly rocks and they feel just right…
So now we can go to Kebnekaise =)

I’m having a Tea and plan to go for a walk later on…

Oh yes, I’ve got a job, to make a front for a calendar… I’m not sure what the customer want yet though because it came in a bit backwards… I really should go ahead with making my company, there’s customers already… company or no company.. =)
I need to get some sort of a image from the town thou, a image that is good enough to sell calendars… planning to walk there now and have a look around… maybe try to take some shots later on… in the morning…

Yes I know, I haven’t written anything in a really long time. But there haven’t been anything interesting happening in my life lately and I haven’t been in the mood for this sort of things, now I’m so bored that I might just as well…

So where to start? I wonder where I left you… *peaking*… Aah yes the shoes…

I has been around half the country hunting for shoes. First in this town. The range of shoes that are my size (EU 48) and that I like in this town really sucks it’s close to nothing at all, and I need really good trekking shoes course by feet are quite sensitive and getting sore feet is the worst thing. We then went to Kärkkäinen a huge shopping mall about 100 km north of here, over there we found a pair of Meindl boots that fit my foot pretty well but they were high boots  and I’ve never had any high ones before… it might be good since it’s supporting the foot and surely good for wading, they were quite expensive and I didn’t buy them. I bought a monopod that also works as a walking staff thou, that was a good investment i think… When we came home we found an advertisement for Hanwag Alaska, that is supposedly a very good shoe, from another one of those super-malls this time about 100 km south of here. So the next day we woke up bright and early and went to Tuuri, when we got there the largest shoes they had were just big enough to get my feet in them with force, but walking in them would have been absolutely impossible. So we went to Seinäjoki to three different sport stores that just might have my size, but no luck. When we came back home I ordered the shoe I wanted from the net, from a store called “scandinavian outdoor store” in Åbo, I will get them tomorrow. I just really really hope they are fitting now because it was the biggest size available…

So what else… I’ve been working on starting up a company the last weeks, it will be called [CENSORED] and the main idea is that I will [CENSORED]… I just hope that I will get it to work economically, and there are a lot of forms, trademarks, laws and stuff that I don’t really understand… I think that I will have to attend some kind of a “start your own company” course… It’s either start a own company or go look for a job somewhere… And finding a job in the Media is close to impossible at least something that I want to work with…

I’ve been walking a bit lately and also biking… I haven’t prepared any tracks for this post, but I have one laying on the desktop…




This track was from 10th september, I should have more somewhere… If I find them I’ll upload…

It’s been horribly bad weather lately, lead gray skies, no wind, around 7 degrees and just on the edge of starting to rain… I don’t think I’ve seen the sun or the sky for a week and that is starting to get a bit irritating…
