Silvåkra marathon, one of her many projects. Ida decided to get ready for and run a marathon. Why not do it right from scratch and arrange one yourself. She and Tobbe had an open invitation that attracted runners, bicyclists and horse-back riders. A fantastic arrangement, extremely wet though, that we look forward to again next year.
True colors – This day was probably not meant for me as my bike left me no peace. I had to kick like crazy and decided to give up the race. When all others were on the gate for the first moto the bike started and I ran to get in position. I had a really good start ahead of most but ended up in a spectacular crash wide open in 5th gear.
Kinekulle is a magnificent creation. We always thought Spring was ahead in Skåne, but when PK’s refreshingly young mother chased us on the mountain trail, we got lost in the beauty of the early blue anemones, for the first time this year.
The snow came in. We rushed out to find a rough day but bravely fought the gusty winds and hail and heroically struggled to find ourselves eventually on top of the Billebjär mountain. No fear are the words …
Well, the ol’ man rocks. It was my day at Saxtorp. The yearly Enduro Special was an easy kill where most youngsters were left behind. It made me feel good to enjoy the score board keep me up top: 9 of 121 in my class, 12 overall of the 246 5-lapers. Third in FMCK Malmö.
Crossing the border to Blekinge showed to be a successful move. This year’s growth of ‘funnel’ chanterelle is no challenge.
1st week January 2006
We stayed in Tore’s house in Edsåsen, quiet and away from the Åre yuppies. Spent the week exploring the pists and tracks on many slopes. Ended up with a refreshing snowmobile ride at -20C, no wind, and clear blue sky.
