I went off-road to the trekking trail at Larsmo, about 15 km or so north of here… I have a pair of trekking shoes that I bought last year after we came from the fells in Abisko, Sweden and they are a number too big for me. Every time I used those shoes I’ve got chafed feet, but I thought that if I put two pairs of socks I would be able to use them anyway… wrong… I got about 4.5 km on the trail that are either 8 or 13 km depending on how you walk, so I was past the point of no return when first the heel on the right foot started to hurt and then the left one followed… I’ve said it before but now I mean it… I WILL NEVER EVER USE THOSE SHOES AGAIN… period.

I also had an encounter with an elk, it was at a rather overgrown part near a small lake, something run of into the forest like elks do when they get scared, I said aloud Are there elks in this forest? and then something ran with a lot of noise to the other direction… I take that as a yes… =)

Hi…

I was going to write every day, that was the goal I set for myself when I started this thing, but for some reason I always seem to forget… From now on I’m gonna try to write more, every single day… (right…)

So what has been going on… I’m not sure what I left off with the last time… maybe I said that I was about to shoot the FSOM orienteering event, I think that was it, well I did shoot it all… three days of scorching hot sunshine in the forest and at the beach, it turned out to be about 2500 photos all in all… what don’t you do for the local orienteering club… (hmm…) anyway the whole set can be seen here http://www.fsom08.co.cc/

Other then that… well I got another lightning shot, it’s not perfect but it’s a lightning shot… I collect them =) …and I bought a gorilla pod… it’s rater cute…

I also managed to get more f**king blisters on my feet… both feet this time, I’m not even sure what happened but I think that I got sand in my shoes when I was walking around on the beach taking photos for the sport people and then the sand was rubbing against my feet when I was walking the whole day… I didn’t notice anything was wrong until I got home… It’s just a bit annoying because I would need to get new shoes for the trek to Sarek later this fall and those kind of shoes needs to be walked a bit before you go on a long (many days) trek… hopefully everything sorts itself out… I guess it will…

Today I went to see a friend and he was drinking and smoking a lot… so I drew him to town and came back pretty quickly… Wonder if the alcoholics have more fun then me because I could use a bit more fun right now…

I am waiting for my father to (maybe) call and want a ride home from work… it’s about 50km south of here… but it might be that he is coming tomorrow morning too… who knows… I guess I could call him and ask but if he is not coming then he is probably sleeping and I don’t feel like walking him up… then again if he would be coming he would probably have called earlier and asked if I could come…… it’s complicated… =)

I really wish my feet wouldn’t bee sore, I could use a really ling walk… but there haven’t been much walking lately..

I’ve got an annoying little sore blister on the smallest toe on my left foot (the one that is the furthest to the left), that’s the excuse why I didn’t go walking very far tonight… I did start out thinking I would go the “normal” 6 km track but it hurt like **** to walk so I turned it to a short track. I has been crappy weather all day today, first it looked like it would start raining for a really long time and then i actually started raining… I’ve been sitting at the kitchen table fixing photos most of the day…

I hope:
a.) I get the crank set for the bike..
b.) My toe turns OK soon..
c.) The weather turns good again soon

Not much but I can’t really walk on the left foot…
(yes I know, excuses excuses.. but it’s my f***ing foot ok)
