      After cycling over 100km yesterday, it should be a little more relaxed today. The weather shouldn't be so bad from noon on either (I can confirm, because on the way back by car it is pouring out of buckets).
      So a slightly shorter tour through the former Muttental mining area. A green paradise in the middle of the Ruhr area. Here nature has regained its part.
      There are all kinds of old tunnels (or their entrances) to be seen on the mining trail. The Nachtigall visitor mine was of course closed.
      It was really adventurous on the last kilometer.
      Here the path was closed due to felling work. We then wanted to take a detour via the road and then come back to the original path in the forest, but it was still closed here as well. So we had no choice but to go cross-country. It was a bit adventurous, but that is often part of TheLintorfer's tours 😉😎.
      So in this case only partially suitable for running after.
      I took this tour a few years ago, this one is better for running after:

      I used today's bridging day to drive down routes that are now simply too full on the weekend. The plan worked, there were a few people around, but it wasn't too crowded.
      I was able to drive quickly and thus end the tour with the first raindrops.

      It was supposed to be an experiment. Navigation without komoot. So I looked for a nice tour in an area that I had only known from mountain biking and was able to start the experiment.
      This time should be navigated with Outdooractive. Now I really appreciate how sophisticated the komoot software has become 😃. If the frequent voice instructions with komoot are sometimes annoying, Outdooractive is the complete opposite. At first there were no navigation instructions at all because a package still had to be downloaded. It doesn't cost anything, but maybe it would have been better to do that at home.
      But the announcements are definitely more confusing than helpful. Instead of just left, it is announced, for example, to turn back now. A correct announcement was rarely made, which of course required a constant look at the actually quite good map material.
      Well, what you see here is the recording that I made with the watch at the same time. It wasn't that easy to find the images so that I could upload them to komoot.
      Which, by the way, just like longer comments, still only works really well via the browser.
      So, that was a tour today in which the technology was in the foreground, but we were still able to enjoy the well-visited area very much. As always, just take a look at the pictures to get an impression.
      If you are interested, the tour on Outdooractive can be found here:

      Today another Bergisch foray was on in summery weather. I should have done half of the forays now.
      This is very asphalt-heavy, which is completely ok considering the topic.
      Rest as always, see pictures.
      @ Outside crew, here are a few miles for the fundraiser. Not much, but every kilometer counts 👍🏻😃.
      All Bergische forays are summarized in this collection:

      On Friday mornings, my otherwise well-filled meeting calendar usually allows a more extensive run. This morning it was particularly difficult to overcome the bastard. It was still so dark outside and the rain clouds were ready to go.
      But what use is it, appointment is appointment 🙄, so on and off 🏃.
      It was cold, it got wet and the star chickweed was not at all like "I show my beautifully shaped papers" and was closed and hung its head. But not me like that, with my head held high, I walked pretty much alone through the quiet forest and enjoyed the water cooling from above and below.
      Stay positive and have a relaxed start to the weekend 😃.
      Sunday should be really nice, so enjoy the sun in your gardens or the sauna atmosphere in the top floor apartment, who knows how often this year there will still be an opportunity 🙂🙃😉

      Today I explored a previously unknown area. A very beautiful area that is reminiscent of the Dutch national parks, e.g. De Meinweg.
      Unfortunately it turned out during the tour that it couldn't be walked as planned. Numerous paths were closed, partly because of game protection, which of course should be respected.
      However, it was a bit surprising that the south-eastern entrance to the Diersfordt Forest was locked (km 2.58), which meant that it was a not inconsiderable detour via country road. So if you want to pursue this tour, you should perhaps plan to go directly to the north entrance, near which you can also park (directly at the radio transmitter at km 5.35).
      The small detour to the Waldsee should also be approached from the north, which saves you having to walk twice.
      Since I know the area a little now, I will take this into account in the next planning.
      But the area is great and is a great alternative to the Netherlands in these times, we'll be back 😀.

      So that one daughter has time to bake a cake, the other daughter has kidnapped her mother on a short hike with the dogs.
      Nice round 😃

      A day in Elfringhauser Switzerland always feels like a day of vacation and it is practically on the doorstep.
      Inspired by a tour of 'Jingle Bells', thank you very much.
      Most of the time it went over fields, meadows and through forests. Little asphalt and yet a relatively long stretch of road, which, however, could not be avoided.
      However, this was compensated for by a lot of landscape and distant views.
