Christianshøj Shelter to Højderyggens Shelter
A dull, unspectacular day. On and off drizzle, mostly through forest on wet, partly muddy trails.
Two things worth mentioning though:
I rejoined the official E1 today, after leaving it in Halmstad. It feels good to be back on it!
Second point: planning. I couldn't just do nothing at all yesterday. So I risked an outlook for the coming days.
From yesterday's Christianshøj shelter it's roundabout 250km to Flensburg. My goal: arrive there on the 29th at sunset. 6 days, roughly 40km days. Ambitious but absolutely doable since the terrain is generally flat and fast going.
The itinerary looks like this:
24. Christianshøj to Norre Snede
25. Norre Snede to Jelling
26. Jelling to Baekke
27. Baekke to Vojens
28. Vojens to Rodekro
29. Rodekro to Flensburg
Usually, I never plan my hiking itinerary so detailed as I don't want to be too fixed on the schedule. But I thought I'd do an exception. Let's see how it works out.
These long days also mean plenty of walking in the dark. Today it were more than 3 hours. While I don't particularly like it as it uses a good amount of concentration not to get lost or to stumble into things (especially in the forest), I find it kind of intriguing as well. My world is reduced to a small buble: only as far as the beam of my head lamp reaches.
