On the southern shore of Sandungen, in the Forest, Oslo kommune.

Today's battleship location is: G 2



Take all the necessary stuff and cycle. It'll be about 35km up the steepness that is Stubdalsveien, so I guess I'll take my time. But I hope to collect some of the immense amount of mushrooms that have sprouted during the recent rainfalls.


  • Power outage. I think that's the Internet's way of telling you to gtdo and go hashing. I'll just have to take care of the fridge first. -- relet @60,1568,10,2571 11:01, 14 August 2010 (MESZ)
  • Indeed. Power came back the moment I left the house. It's an expedition! -- relet @60,1481,10,2510 11:21, 14 August 2010 (MESZ)
  • Next 5km will be uphill. Oh joy! Last time, I gave up half way up. -- relet @60,1272,10,3624 11:51, 14 August 2010 (MESZ)
  • Geo-horsey roadblock. Maybe some Omgponies too. But being equestr-ignorant, I couldn't tell them apart. -- relet @60,1236,10,3959 12:37, 14 August 2010 (MESZ)
  • All that cycling must have been good for something. Enjoying the view on Storflatan with my breakfast sammich. -- relet @60,0903,10,4144 13:07, 14 August 2010 (MESZ)
  • Second breakfast: Raspberries! Woo! -- relet @60,1169,10,5103 13:45, 14 August 2010 (MESZ)
  • Ooh, coverage! Been hiking for the last 3km, then along a path that I would have called a creek, until that very muddy mountain biker shot past me. Coordinates reached, too! -- relet @60,1142,10,6185 16:49, 14 August 2010 (MESZ)


The turning wheel museum. Damtjern is known for its kjerrats, which use water power to transport timber up the hill. 
...along wooden water viaducts like this one. (Although I am quite sure this is not the uphill track) 
The steepness inspired people to organize the Kjerrathlon, up and down the hill. 
A roadblock! 
I bet they just want to collect the toll. 
Insert toll here, thankyouverymuch. 
Close horses are hard to depict. 
Mushroom season! I went on a photo safari! 
A grass stole the focus from my raspberries! 
A lake taking a leak. 
Geosheep are curious too. 
The path I went hiking along. 
I'll certainly take the opportunity to classify some of these sometime. 
But now and here they are only for their ...erm. Artistic merit, or something. 
This helpful sign says "way" 
Fact: Sheep like to distract from their inherent boringness by lurking in scenic locations. 
I found gold! (Chanterelles to be exact) 
Stupidity distance 122m - X marks the spot. 
Coordinates reached! And for once the accuracy did not constantly try to underbid my proximity. In fact, I wasn't able to get it any lower. 
Prominent hash-feature: A vertical wall 
Prominent hash-move: A stupid grin. 
There sure are a lot of lakes in Norway... 
..providing ample opportunities for scenic campfires. 
The Red Sea 
Whee! Looks like fun! If only I had my swimming trunks with me. 
Fact: Sheep like... yeah. 
Crêpes chanterelle.. the final product looked a bit better, but it didn't last long enough for a photo. 
The path taken by yours truly. 27km of cycling and 4km of hiking - and back on a slightly different track.
