Ökna east of Vetlanda is one of our most popular offroad areas, located on the South Swedish Highland. The large area has a big hight difference from the top of the mountain and down to the river.
And lots of trails, The Long Trail being the most popular. Lots av water/mud holes due to rain earlier this summer.
We were 40 cars and ATVs, a good figure on a Wednesday. The temperature reached a new high with 29 degrees Celsius! But on the Highland the wind is refreshing and there is always a lake nearby for a cool dip: Lake Ökna.
The local Club Vetlanda ATV served superb local lunch with bacon, hash potatoes and lingonberry jam, plus traditional hamburger. For the first time the food stand was located by the gravel road through the area, right in the middle of the offroad action, easy reachable for everybody.
Tomorrow Thursday July 10 we drive SOT Greppek-Oskarshamn. Our largest offroad area with 127 hectars and free driving everywhere! Superb local food. Kroppkakor, "Body cakes", with lingonberry and melted butterwill be served, plus hot dogs. The Gunnarsö Camping south of Oskarshamn is our finest on its own island in the Baltic Sea.
