After returning from our through-hike along the Swedish mountain range I ponder the shelters that we found providing protection from rain, wind, and bloodsucking bugs. We carried a tent and I find it amazing how little you need to get up and walk with a little food and a good night’s sleep.
A tent for Swedish mountain is always a compromise between weight, safety and comfort and I am glad we found a good balance and didn’t have to freeze too much.
That said, we slept inside whenever we could.
in fading sunlight,
to the rivilets murmur
we’re falling asleep
Today we are writing Haibun with Mish at dVerse and we are writing about shelter. For me, it was obvious that this could reflect the importance of a good shelter when we walked 1320 km in 60 days. We were very happy with our tent, but also with the cabin system in both Sweden and Norway, meaning we could get a sleep inside when the weather was worse than it was in the picture above.
