I will try to go from Haukeliseter to Haugastøl.

This is a trip that I possibly parts.

Part 1 From Haukeliseter to Dyranut

Part 2 From Dyranut to Haugastøl

Some of the routes I've been before but most are new routes for me.

When I go from Litlos to Besso I will take a detour. I'll take the trail to the east by Bismarvatnet. This trail goes to Hansbu. So I go up Dimmedalen. It should be a lot of mountain flowers there.

 

I see that this will be a tiring trip with many long routes, but with nice landscaping. I have to take it easy and take only a cottage at day. My heel spurs as I have had for 1 year and 8 months can I now recognize that beten have been much better. Did not know any of the meniscus in a long time, so it looks good.

When I start this trip is hard to say. There is something about snow and weather conditions to do. Could maybe start part one in July and part 2 in the first part of August.

Also, my health should be OK. Do enough to continue to keep me in shape.
