An old pair of shoes and two new ones

August 1st, 2017

My old pair of running shoes, the Mizuno Wave Hayate 2. According to this review it has oustanding traction, but I disagree. A bit moist conditions and I do not trust the shoes at all, the conditions needs to be all dry and not a single rock or tree root for me to trust them. And the shoe sole has started to loosen from the shoe on one of them after what I consider pretty lightweight usage. So, no more Mizuno for me.

So yesterday I passed by the Sport1 outlet next to Oslo City and found two new pair of shoes which I do expect will perform way better. The Inov8 Artic Claw 300 - which is actually a winter running shoe with 16 spikes, but I will use them as terrain shoes in summer time as well. I expect them to have very good grip at all times, even in very wet conditions on rocks and tree roots. The other one, Asics Fuji Runnegade 2, does not have spikes but I also expect the grip to be way better than the Mizunos. Both shoes 700,- pr. pair, so a very good price as well.

So now I cannot complain about the shoes when in Sweden in 30 days - all ready for Icebug Challenge.

Wet car

August 1st, 2017

No side windows, plastic fantastic, but not using waterproofed tape - risky

Seems like the car would be washed pretty well both on the outside and the inside

And off course a disclaimer: I was passing by on the bus, not able to help :-)

Not much, but it is a start - one cloudberry

July 30th, 2017

Out running two days ago, found a cloudberry - not much, but it is a start, tasted good at least

Sootkanalmarsjen for the first time

July 30th, 2017

Today I did for the first time the "Sootkanalmarsjen" (Soot channel march) together with number #1 and #2, click here to see the GPS tracking at Sportstracker. First of all, the diploma earned - and to make things perfectly clear, not my 28'th time, but the 28'th year the march is arranged.

The kids looking at one of the sluices, I do believe it is sluice #14 Dines Soot

Time for a break, which they had deserved.

Things to look at

And the grand finale, a swim in Setten.

Flat start of the day

July 29th, 2017

Walking by the Mondeo just to discover the rear wheel tire almost completely flat. Good thing that I have ordered four new tyres for Thursday. Hopefully I can refill it and it will last until I have driven the car to the service station.

No more cold feets

July 29th, 2017

Finally did the last touch of my styrofoam project, ensuring warm feets when having "Nye Qodlibet" or when Ã…kerland have their band rehearsal. Styrofoam has now been glued to the ceiling in the cellar of the old outbuilding.

Pasture tending - the war against lupins

This year as well, the war against blacklisted lupins, getting ready

And done, burn, burn, burn!

Dust cloud, what?

June 26th, 2017

Couple of days ago, out riding my bike I suddenly saw this cloud of dust. It was impossible to see what made the cloud

But the noise did explain it, and a bit closer - a wheel loader with a road brush.

Copenhagen earlier this week

June 16th, 2017

To: Tuesday. Return: Wednesday. The view

Back home, bought this magazine, would have spent the money better if I had put fire to them.
