Got back from an awesome 5 day trip covering 90km of the Bohusleden, and decided to do something a little different and bigger than my usual trip reports. Check it out:
I focus more on the trip and the trail, and so far have not written anything about gear, sorry gear junkies. But I am sure some of you are wondering, so:
Base weight 3.8kg, plus food 3.5kg, plus water (max volume) 2.2kg = Max total backpack weight of 9.5kg. Did not bother to weigh clothing worn, but it was nothing special–NB trail runners (don't know the model, but they are pretty beefy, not any of the minimal ones), running pants, synth t-shirt, baseball cap, windbreaker.
I normally only hauled about 1.2l of water, as water is plentiful on this trail most of the time. In 5 days I only ran into 6 people total on the trail. Really had a great time, looking forward to writing up the rest of my reports, and of course hiking the rest of the trail. Let me know what you think :)Aug 26, 2012 at 9:40 am #1906126
Just posted my most detailed report yet, with lots of pics, in case anyone might be interested. 4 total so far are up, will probably put up another 4 in the next few weeks.
Feedback always welcome :)

Such a different landscape and hiking experience there than here in far northern California. You're doing a great job. Looking forward to the rest.Aug 26, 2012 at 10:11 am #1906133
Thanks man, glad you like it so far :)
I was born in Los Angeles, CA, and when I was a kid did some trips up to Northern CA but didn't get to the far north.Sep 4, 2012 at 5:05 am #1908907
Okay, finally finished up my reports from a 5 day section hike spanning 6 sections of trail. 64 pictures uploaded. I am planning another 3 day section hike with a friend in October, and of course more reports after that. Between now and October I will also write up a report on one more section that I hiked on a short overnight trip back in April.
