81,409 Steps At Gatebil Rudskogen
Again in 2017, I hiked a part of the so-called King’s Path (Kungsleden) in North Sweden, a path that’s roughly 440 kilometers (270 miles) lengthy. I walked a route that was roughly 60 kilometers, and it took me every week to finish it with no stress, stopping for a break every so often at stunning vistas and having fun with what nature needed to provide. All in all, it was a really stress-free and fulfilling week.
At Gatebil Rudskogen 2022, I walked, ran, crawled and climbed 54.2 kilometers or 81,409 steps. To me, that’s fairly spectacular contemplating that I did it over one weekend. Granted, the iPhone Well being app isn’t 100% correct in the case of what number of steps you full every day, however it’s the closest factor we now have to an computerized step counter.
Listed here are a few of my highlights from the weekend, with a step rely.
Porsche 993/935 – Step Rely: 2,451
For those who do an Google picture search on ‘Wangan Racing’, you’ll discover a image of a Martini-liveried Porsche 935 driving in a tunnel with a small flame spewing from the exhaust. That’s the picture that just about received me digging deeper into Japanese road racing tradition. I’ve wished to see a 935 in individual ever since, and I received fairly shut at Gatebil Rudskogen with this 935-kitted 993 from the ‘No Matching Numbers’ staff. One of the best factor is, it was being pushed to its absolute restrict.
Fredric Aasbø & Olav Haugen Hasdal – Step Rely: 27,931
I ended by Fredric Aasbø’s paddock pit to take a look at his Jon Sibal-designed Toyota Supra. Individuals have been fast to encompass the automobile, and discuss to Fredric and take selfies. What I didn’t count on to see was drifter Olav Haugen Hasdal asking for a photograph, however it’s all the time enjoyable seeing one driver be a fan of one other.
A College Undertaking – Step Rely: 28,051
It’s not simply drift builds and insane time assault vehicles at Gatebil.

A Acquainted Sight – Step Rely: 60,971
I wasn’t anticipating to satisfy any fellow Icelanders at this occasion after listening to that Fannar’s Porsche 944 drift automobile broke down weeks earlier than the occasion.

A Priceless Lesson – Step Rely: 61,221
With so many vehicles coming into Breisladden (energy drift) competitors, I wanted to attend some time earlier than I might seize a picture of Fredric Aasbø. When he lastly arrived I fired away, however my shutter stopped as quickly as he initiated into the primary nook. I appeared on the display screen and it learn ‘No area on the reminiscence card’. It was a rookie mistake I hopefully gained’t make once more.
DJ Aasbø – Step Rely: 71,144
This entire article might have been about Fredric in all equity. Through the after celebration, Norway’s favourite drift champ stepped on stage and spun the information for the folks under. Was there a greater technique to hype up the gang for the upcoming artists? I don’t assume so.
A Drained Doggy – Step Rely: 78,323
I felt this one. An image that explains what I’d appear to be just a few hours later throughout the automobile experience residence. Sleep was one factor I was actually trying ahead to after three days dwelling on the observe.
