We started in Örebro without knowing if it would be possible to go all the way.
03.19 am, breakfast in the hostel in Örebro.
03.43 am, entering the taxi to go to the ice.
04.00 am, on the ice at Rävgången in Örebro, ready to go.
05.45 am, sunrise.
Underwater streams had destroyed the ice on the canal and river connecting the lakes
so we had to take a taxi. (The taxi transfer is not included in the measured 184 km.)
07.49 am, taxi transfer from lake Hjälmaren to lake Mälaren (see above).
12.14 pm, an interesting passage.
12.27 pm, arriving at Hjulstabron.
12.29 pm, Hjulstabron.
12.46 pm. There was no ice east of Hjulstabron so we had to walk for 61 minutes before
we could enter the ice again.
13.18 pm. Same as above.
14.19 pm. The same passage as above from another angle.
15.20 pm, at Sparin.

17.42 pm. Stuggle with the ice until the end.
17.59 pm, less than 1 km to go.
