Beautiful Hike Routes

Hi Gysbert, another interesting hiking route.
The first time i saw this kasematts i thougt it was a part of air ventilation for the bunkers. As i saw the first kasematts at the very end of Ibboholmen near the bridge to Salthamn. It has make me think of that idea. Yesterday I made a hike from Granthorp over the bridge to Salthamn Church and on my way to Dyviks Udde i came along the kasemattes at the Sandviken Camp. I tried to get in because there was a wooden Door at the back end but you can’t open it. I fired a HEP Bullet at it but nothing other happened that i killed myself :rofl:

Route 12: Dry Riverbed Route

spacer2
I started the run from the Klinte bay and followed the mostly dried-up riverbed all the way to Muskudden Port Dam. I’ve drawn a blue line on the map to show the route.


spacer2
I would love it irl to really walk over a dry and stoney riverbed.


spacer2
On the edge of Klinte as I am on the bend some 50 yards before the first Bridge, the sun breaks through. Great, that will liven up the photo’s.


spacer2
I past the first Bridge. Although there are still patches of water to be found, this part is pretty dry.


spacer2
At the second bridge there’s water but it’s not very deep. You see the runner under the bridge? He attacked me in the water. Well he tried…


spacer2
A lot of water here, but still only knee-deep at the deepest spots.


spacer2
Here the route goes up quite a bit. Hope it’s not too slippery.


spacer2
In fact the whole gully rises a lot from sea-level to the basin behind the dam.


spacer2
In the background you can see the elevated railway that comes from Muskudden Port and goes towards the Factory entrance. (RÖ Redovisningskansli Öst) to the left.


spacer2
Getting closer to the dam. Again there are runners here somewhere, I can hear them. Let’s not alert them, they will spoil this beautiful run for sure.


spacer2
Still going up.


spacer2
From where I am standing, underneath the elevated railway, I can see the Dam up ahead.


spacer2
Ok, a bit more water here. Best stick to the sides.


spacer2
There it is, the Dam. I’ll have to climb up there. But with my 7% jump boost on my shoes and 5% on my pants, that should be no trouble at all.


spacer2
Made it. :wink:


spacer2
I’m crossing the dam toward the basin, to have a closer look.


spacer2
Hmm… I think I can jump down on that ledge. It is under water though. Not sure how much.


spacer2
Oops, I can just stand here without going under, but there’s no way back up. Well, there is … fast travel or drowning! Anyways, It was a nice scenic route.

"Route 13: Harvester Dumping Stations

Red Harvester Dumping Stations
spacer2
This route is covering 22 Harvester Dumping Stations locations (aka, Dumping Vaults, Underground Storages, or Red Hatches), where Harvesters go to dump their loot harvest. The vaults can contain all kinds of loot from weapon attachments, to apparel items to help you complete the GZ clothing sets. Dumping stations were also part of the Scout challenges, where you had to loot 30 dumping Stations.

Let’s go, and find some!

Dear Gysbert you did a huge masterwork collecting all these locations and creating the routes. I love this stuff and it gives the game another dimension. The only thing I regret is the absence of coordinates from these pictures and locations so we can with certain ease trace your routes. But I can imagine this would have been a lot more work. Respect!

1 Like

Thanks Ezekiel. I see your point about the coordinates. Initially I created these routes as photo routes to show what a beautiful world Östertörn is, and it wasn’t my intention for others to really run those routes. So I only noted coordinates of places that I would like to remember where they were. So of Power-lines, Trucks or Signs and such, I didn’t take the coordinates for.

With the last route “In-game Maps” I did add some name location or indication where these maps are located, so that people still have a sense of exploring while being pointed in the right direction, if they want to go there themselves.

Is there any specific route you like the coordinates for, like the “Caves Route” for instance. I can see that those are places people would like to visit.

Indeed mate, especially the “cave locations” that i want to collect. :innocent: To make it easy you can put the coordinates in the specific pictures.

I will add them in the accompanying text next to each picture.
