My legs didn’t feel too fatigued yet. I calculated that I would be home at around midnight. I continued to trek along Haukiväylä leading to Haukipudas. I crossed the Nelostie (main road 4) as well as the railroad and after a few kilometres I turned onto Haukiputaantie towards Oulu. In Kello I gave into my craving and stopped for a pizza and a beer at the Restaurant/Pizzeria Ala Turk. The evening was getting darker. During the last kilometres the soles of my feet were getting sore. I swigged down my evening coffee at Shell Pateniemi. I wasn’t home until at around half past midnight. According to the GPS, the journey to test the new camping chair came to a little less than 67 kilometres. According to the, in this case, more reliable device i.e. the pedometer, the distance was 64 kilometres. I’d finally conquered the challenge that twice before (in 2011 and in 2013) proved too much for me. Thanks to the light and compact camping chair, I was able to have comfortable and strength restoring breaks often enough.
