    I will probably not write a trip report, maybe I will do some short stories about certain things that happened, for example my 20km nightly solo-hike....

    It sure was!
    We had a little bit of adventure but mostly we just had a really relaxed and good time out there.

    You´re totally right about that one!
    Actually he never tried that!

    Hmm, does that mean that Moski is a loser?
    Or does it mean that we are bad friends not reminding him?

    But we did manage to make a longboat out of 2 packrafts.
    It wasn´t such a success as we hoped for, maybe we had a tree that was to big and heavy. But it was fun trying!


    Buy the way, when we had lunch the last day out on an island in the lake Rogens I forgot my GSI Halulite Minimalist and my Kovea Supalite. I didn´t realize that until we had made camp in the evening only 1,5km away from the car. I got a little grumpy about that mistake and after an hour of thinking it through I packed all my gear, left Moski and Joz and went paddling/hiking to my car.

    When I got to my car I rearranged my pack and packed only the packraft, my lifevest, my paddle and some snacks to eat and went out on a 10km nightly hike back towards Rogens. From the car I could follow the trail and it took me 1hr 45minutes to get back to the lake. At the lake I filled my packraft with air, paddled 50 meters out to the island, collected my gear (and talked to the german guy), paddled back to land, deflated and packed my packraft and went hiking the 10km back to my car.

    It took me in total 4 hrs and 10 minutes from my car and back again plus an extra 30 minutes before I could get into my hammock and go to sleep.

    But it was worth it!

    My precious minimalist.........
