It’s important to keep fit in this hostile world so I love to run hike trails to relax and absorb the beauty of the Swedish nature.
Route 1: Electrical Power Lines
Today I did a Electrical Power Lines hike which I started at 75, 1932. Not sure if those smaller poles with wires are part of the electrical net, but it didn’t matter for my run. Everything was perfect. The sun was shining, and very important no machines in sight. And to make sure this was going to be be a good fitness exercise, where I could run fast when needed I packed a minimal backpack. Just enough to make it back alive if things got rough.
I ran until I reached the big masts at 79, 1101 and started following them, keeping an eye out for seekers and listening for the oh so familiar sounds of the machines.
The masts stood in a more or less straight line and crossed some rather open fields where I was obviously open for attack by machines. I decided not engage in fights if I could. I would just keep running, hoping this day was my lucky day. Afterall it was supposed to be a relaxing run. So far so good!
On the next picture you see that at a certain point the lines bend slightly to the right. Leading toward a more wooded terrain. Here it was trickier to see if machines were close. Also it was getter darker. After a mile or so the power line ends at -3148, 1616. Close to an area called Glennaröd.
I had just time to take the last photograph, when I was almost spotted by a trio of angry Hunters. Time to go prone and flee unseen, get home, get a shower, and dream of an another hike cross country.
