    Ah inov8 roc lite 295, my favourite summer shoes. Wish they still made them and wish they lasted better!

    @Enzo I had to modify the roclites with some neoprene glued on to the heel area because they were too thin and I always got sores on my heels. After the mod they have been fine and they are still going strong. They just look a little worn.

    Great to see you here Brian. Have been following your blog more closely now that I have moved down to Malmö. Hoping to do some trekking on Skåneleden this spring and your blog has lots of good information :)

    @JonB Thanks Jon. Wow, your not far from me in Copenhagen then. Might see you on Skåneleden some time. Is the move to Malmö permanent? Great you can use the info from my blog. I was also excited to read about your Tramplite shelter. It's a bit of a shame that they are difficult to purchase.
