Another perfect day on 21st Sweden Offroad Tour 8-24.7 2016!
Over 50 cars showed up at SOT Sågbacken-Hästveda. Weekends are always good. 10 of the cars were from Denmark! No ATV.
Sweden Per Persson from Veberöd is planning to go all the way - all the days in his Jeep Wrangler 1997 on SOT 2016! Quite an achivement with 17 offroad days. "This is my holiday!"
Dane Michael Bröndt and wife in a Jeep Cherokee 1998 have taken part in SOT every year since 2003! Their SOT clip on youtube.com is a success with over 60000 views!
The weather was superb for offroading; 20 degrees Celsius, mostly sunny, rain the night before. The beach no option.
Hästveda has doubled its area. The north one are leaf trees and wet, the south one is pine trees and dry. Completely opposite!
Hässleholms Militärfordonshistoriska Förening, Hässleholms Military Vehicle History Club, showed a military tank from 1940, Swedish made, and even drove som offroad with it!
Hästveda Folkrace Club served as usual their tasty gulasch soup with creme fraiche and knäckebröd ("hard bread") with cheese. The atmosphere was great at the lunch area.
Tomorrow we drive on the old roads of SOT Paradiset-Karlshamn. Truly a paradise with beautiful nature.
SOT Gröndal-Eskilstuna Sunday July 17 is back on the tour! We have now updated the map and program.
