Zu Fuß unterwegs im Raum Lüneburger Heide, gerne...
…alleine als Hund-Mensch-Team zum Seele baumeln lassen & auslüften
…in netten Gruppen beim Ultrawandern
...mit netten Menschen an meiner Seite als quality time„Nur wo du zu Fuß warst, bist du auch wirklich gewesen“.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
In hazy weather, it was time to walk the dog and the hiking buddy, who was in poor health. While the hiking buddy enjoyed today's very good air quality on the Ilmenau and the Ilmenauniederung and left the dry local heating air at home, the Labbi celebrated one Kneip water bath after the other.
For a Sunday there was relatively little going on on the circuit, which is otherwise popular with dog people, cyclists and joggers.

After yesterday's water trail, which didn't really pick me up, today I had to do a route that I enjoy and that has something to counteract the gray of the day. In local areas around the village, on the educational trail. With a few (due to the weather few) good encounters & nice exchanges of words, the forest cemetery, which owes its uneven terrain to the scree deposits of the glaciers from the last ice age, full of energy & is a place of power for me, with over-motivated cyclists, interesting highlights and a little speed training for them long-distance hiking season beginning in spring.Note: on the gloomy day, there weren't more than b/w photos today.

Finally sun again - the perfect time to crawl out of the winter lethargy, to slip into the hiking boots and to test and push the limits after the varicose vein surgery.The Westergellers water trail is one of the local educational trails. Not a long journey and the subject of water for a retriever bred for duck hunting, at 2 degrees above zero, almost perfect.The nature trail was very nice in places, had some great highlights and brought back great childhood memories. We played a lot on the Brünbach as children and when we had to go home in the evening when it was getting dark, we didn't often come home dry. Water is magical and so many children from the village met by the stream after their homework. Sometimes there were arguments because the boys mostly wanted to build dams while we girls wanted to let our boats drive... what kind of problems were those 😄Despite all the reminiscences, we didn't finish the nature trail. The rest of the way would have passed the waterworks and back across the village. Asphalt, unspectacular.

The winter solstice, also known as Thomas's Night, is the astronomical beginning of winter and the return of the sun. As the day emerges from the night, the year is reborn in the middle of winter. The winter solstice marks the birth of the new year. Year after year in an eternal cycle. Also called "solstice" - the standstill of the sun - in English usage.
As of today, the days are getting longer again and we are celebrating the return of light.... and what a great performance that was !!
I hope you all out there enjoyed a sunrise as majestic as we did on a magical day.

The latest craze is to hike through pictures or messages.So here is our house of St. Nicholas (which was broken off shortly before due to unreasonable off-grid conditions, completely soaked clothing and a pronounced “touch-me-at-your-feet” attitude).By hiking this route, we automatically and directly qualified for the title "Ultra-HardcoreOfGrid-Long-Distance Hiker".What initially began with a funny idea to send the best greetings to Santa Claus to all real and virtual hiking friends out there, formed with increasingly soaking clothes & quiet, increasingly heated monologues into a loud "what the f * ck" and im Afterwards at home there was a quiet shake of the head 🙈So here it comes:Dear hiking friends, my favorite WanderLabbi and I send you the best greetings to Santa Claus; put your biggest boots in front of the door so that something fits properly 🎅🏻 Have a great St. Nicholas Day everyone out there ⭐️P.S .: No more funny motif hikes from me at this point ☝️

The “Hike through Christmassy Hamburg” is a hiking event organized by the ultra-wide hiking operator Nordmarsch.There was no time limit, the goal was to be halfway sober by 7 p.m., without sinking into one of the markets in the goal to pick up the stamp in the hiking pass.The start and finish was in the Schanzenviertel at the old girl and on the circuit, in compliance with the current corona-related requirements, we passed 11 Christmas markets for almost 15km:
the ChristGrindl market, the Winter Pride Christmas market, the Spitaler Strasse Christmas market, the Christmas market on Gerhart-Hauptmann-Platz and An der Petrikirche, the historic Christmas market, the Hafencity Christmas market, the Christmas market on the Fleetinsel, on Jungfernstieg, on Gänsemarkt and Last Blut Not least the Santa Pauli Christmas market.The Christmas markets were fairly divided into 3G and 2G, with the 2G Christmas markets being much more relaxed and atmospheric; This was checked very carefully: anyone who did not meet the requirements was immediately out, everyone else qualified for the next line in order to dial in there under observation with the Luca app.We walked past some Christmas markets because the lines were simply too long or at the 3G markets there were simply too many people who couldn't understand the word “distance”.All in all, it was once again a great, successful hiking event by Nord-Marsch. Thanks for a great day.... between Komoot and my iPhone there is currently apparently a disharmony ... this time Komoot only took some of the photos with them when uploading the tour and mixed them up ... but something is always there.

At the start of the weekend, the first two-digit door in the Nordmarsch Advent calendar should be opened. Once the nature trail around our little muggish village is 11-12km.That’s the plan. The wind, back again, whistled properly around the houses and Father Frost conjured up bizarre ice formations on the puddles.Halfway through the route, however, it was over; the hunters had similar plans and without further ado closed the forest, through which the second half of the educational path and our way back, should go, completely for the weekend. Thank you Merkel ✌️

During the night it stopped raining & the wind died down. The thermometer shows a crisp 2 °.So get out of bed BEFORE getting up, so that my favorite hiking buddy and I can sit at the PC in the home office on time for the start of work: Bread rolls want to be fetched, the dog taken and the chickens released.The athletic unit was rewarded early in the morning with a warm, freshly laid egg (I think by Waltraut), followed by a hot shower and finally freshly brewed coffee with the anticipation of fresh, crunchy rolls during the breakfast break.Klärchen shows herself from the best December side and shines with the prospect of a weekend on little Friday.All of you out there: have a great day :)

Just in time for the run-up to Christmas and the aggravations caused by the pandemic, almost all well-known ultra-long hiking organizers have conjured up great winter challenges out of their sleeves.Since last year one of my favorite organizers for ultra long hikes #nordmarsch had sensationally got me off the sofa with the winter k (r) ampf and chased me out into the freezing cold, the registration for the winter k (r) ampf 2.0 was already in Sack and in April Bags.In addition to #Winterk (r) ampf, Nordmarsch has the free advent calendar on offer: each number of the corresponding advent calendar door has to be run through completely once, the order of the doors is irrelevant and freely selectable - since the upcoming variceal surgery slows me down a little and everyday work also wants to have his attention, my four-legged hiking buddy and I won't hike all the little doors - but what a great action that is: challenge accepted 💪December 1st - door no. 1: the plan was a loose 7-8km after work ...
Just in time while the PC was shutting down, Petrus opened the floodgates and after the first 100m there was a great facial peeling due to the combination of insane wind and biting rain and also felt hail in between, which can probably keep up with the best fruit acid treatment (for further beauty tips follow me on Insta 😉). When changing direction with a face with a wonderfully rosy blood supply, the SuperWind pushed so much from behind that you couldn't help but increase your speed and, with renewable energies, you were pushed through the soggy terrain between fields, corridors and forest like an e-bike .Komoot did a great job again after the reinstallation; which you can't say about the battery of the iPhone, because it hoisted the white flag without prior notice and was done (probably it was up to the user ... in the freezing cold with 40% battery level, there are simply no 98,000 photos in it 📸😁).Although canceled, it was a great tour for a clothing and equipment check ✔️#machenistwiewollennurkrasser #nordmarsch #winterk (r) ampf
