    Got back home yesterday. No rocking, no swinging, no cool wind under my tarp, no view over the lake, no morning splash in the freezing water, no snakes, no need for 'special techniques' to poop, no mosquitos, no fire, no woodchopping, no killerwasps hiding in a tree, no mushrooms, no food in a tube,...

    No fun! I wanna get out there again!

    I would like to thank:
    - Swede & family for the hospitality and the arrangements. Great job! We felt right at home. You guys are a great team.
    - Hank for his pure awesomeness, the cognac and the great stories of Swedish topless women although he never did manage to find some on this trip.
    - Piotr and Kitty for their company and keeping the pace low. Otherwise we would have been in Gnesta on monday afternoon.
    - Dutch for all the tips & tricks, great stories and great laughs. And for the soothing sound of snoring which, I'm pretty sure, kept all the wolves, moose and bears away.
    - Joz for being such a great example. It really looked like you've been canoeing and hammocking for all your life. And thanks for the invitation to come up to the north for the winter Skaho some day. That sounds really nice.
    - And special thanks to Sofia for the extra work of sewing the tarp and getting a bugnet for Jasper. Too bad the bugnet didn't do the trick but I think we changed Jasper from 'Hell no! You can give me 20 more hammocks if you want, but I'm bringing the tent on this trip!' to 'I slept pretty good that first couple of hours. Maybe I'll invest in a bugnet and bring this thing to Italy with me.'

    Thanks all and see you next time!

    Hi all! Just want to thank everyone who went on this trip for all the good
    times and late nights with all the chatting and wood burning!

    Hoping that we will make a similar trip for next summer! ^^

    Im currently preparing for my next paddling trip and wont probably
    get time to do a proper trip report until next week.

    I would like to thank:
    - Swede & Sofia for being awesome + too much to list.
    - Hank for bringing his axe. duh!
    - Kitty for forcing me to perfect my canoe steering.
    - Dutch for niche biz inspiration and conversation. Also for confronting my dilemma of not knowing how to tie a knot.
    - Joz for your help organizing the trip. Plus his great strong/silent roll --if we saw wolves I'd be the first to run in your direction.
    - Dutch guys (not the american), for all the booze, good stories and for choosing the ant island for us.
    - Astrid for being a gracious host/welcome ambassador and helping setup kitty's hammock so I didn't have to strangle her in it.
    - Oliver for always believing in me that I could understand Swedish. ...thanks buddy. :/

    Thanks all and see you next time! +1
