19th August

Off to Scotland tomorrow! The gear has been selected, weighed, listed etc and awaits packing tomorrow. All up weight for the Kungsleden looks like starting at just under 30 lbs. but 9 of that is food and water. Today I went on a little tester hike, just 13k. I wore my Turkish gear, ie shorts, short sleeved shirt and Keen sandals. The latter kept my feet reasonably cool, air temperature was around 27, but I was constantly worried by getting small pieces of grit under my heels. They never amounted to anything, and only once did I have to stop to take of a sandal, but, as I said, a constant worry. At the moment I am minded not to use them.
