We arrived in Saxnäs. Before heading off to the Ransarån river we had a special gig in a fishing shop. The fishing shop in Kultsjögården was a real treat after a long drive. They served excellent coffee and food right next to the fishing gear.
The concert was soon to start when we realized that we would have to do some improvising; we didn’t have neither a drum set or a working guitar amp. Håvard used an acoustic guitar and Fredrik made the drum kit using Trangia pots and parts of the furniture. Still, we felt at home. Probably because we have had so much practice with odd setups while jamming in the car. The audience seemed to like it after-all.
After the concert it was once again time to blow up the contents of the JFF-car on the parking lot and re-packing most of it in our backpacks for the next day’s hike. With the amount of equipment, personal clothing and all the food, it usually takes 3-4 hours to get it done. I wouldn’t call it exactly army style, but somehow we managed to divide 160kg of stuff between the four of us. The rain that started in the middle of it didn’t help at all, but since the forecast for the next day’s expedition was looking good, we maintained a “cautiously optimistic” mood.
