Clarification of the expedition goals, scouting trip in Scandinavia, outreach and communication plan, signature of sponsorship contracts, contact with the media... the Striders and their Nordakalottleden team have indeed been pretty active!
In May Rachel and Kamil Jagodzinski drove through Northern Norway, Sweden and Finland to get information and make on-the-field contacts. This trip will be detailed in a separate post.
Now back in Switzerland it is all about serious training for Rachel and the dogs, mapping, gear testing and solving some logistics issues. Believe me, the next three months are clearly going to be busy, yet interesting! Don't miss out our next post on training workouts due later this week!
