Getting in shape.

My desk job is killing me! So today after work I decide to go for a run. The only exercise I get on my job is walking for my car to my desk, about 150 meters and from my desk to the coffee machine, about 25 meters. The walk to the coffee machine I will make every half-hour at least twice. I must admin I'm a coffee junkie.

But after work I went for a run it wasn't that far about 6,5 km and it took a very long time when I was home again but it felt good.

My "Powersong" during running.

I especially like the line "It was a chat-up line built not to impress
More a sleazy remark on her whorish dress " It's genius!!

Some gear to test.

Thanks to Hendrik from Hiking in Finland I will get the opportunity to test the Optimus Crux Lite Solo Cook Kit. I'm looking forward to test the stove and I will be curious how it will compare with my current gas stove the Markill Hotshot.

From the top of the Mountain to the bottom of the swap

Last weekend I decide to go for a walk in the Ooijpolder. Polder is the Dutch word for land reclamation; according to Wikipedia we claimed 1/5 of our country form the sea. Or like the English saying: God created the world, but the Dutch created Holland. But in the Ooijpolder we decide to give some land back to the river and we have give God a change to make something of it. And he did the Ooijpolder is nice natural landscape with a lot of wildlife.

After 20 pictures the battery of my camera died. So this must be it. But I will definitely go back this spring when the water is low and the signs of spring can be seen and maybe search for some wild foods.
