I am wearing a homemade personal flotation device made out of ripstop and bug netting and the bags in front and back filled with my water bottle of 2 litres and my 'pillow', a wine bag of 3 litres. Not something I would wear for white water rafting to be sure, but for this trip I deemed the risks of ending up in the water as close enough to nil.
If you follow the 'Ts' long enough, you will find a green valley. Like here at the town of Sulitelma where the self propelled part of my journey ended.
The gear used and the shelter that I made for this trip will be treated in separate articles coming up.
