LightHeart Gear Hikes Coast2Coast Sweden

This month, LightHeart Gear founder Judy Gross will be taking on the Coast2Coast hike across Sweden, and we can’t wait to hear all about the adventure. She will be trekking from the eastern coast of the Baltic in Kalmar to the western coast in Varberg, with the total distance around 248 miles. The event has been held annually since 2013, and attracts hikers from all over the globe. Coast2Coast Sweden was originally organized by Jörgen Johansson and Jonas Hållén, who continue to aid as guides for the event each year.

First and foremost, I am very fortunate to have a wonderful husband who manages my food and mail drops when I’m hiking.  He not only enables me to hike, but actively encourages me to follow my dreams. He also feeds the dogs, the cat, and manages the house and LightHeart Gear while I’m off gallivanting around the world.

I have been preparing my own backpacking food for the past 10 years.  Whether you’re going out for two, or 200 nights, you’ve got to eat. Especially when you’re pumping out 10-12+ hour days, hauling a pack on your back.  As the miles stretch on, food often sits in the forefront of your mind.   Unfortunately, choices for food on the trail can be limited. There are options though. Options you can do yourself at home with a little prep and a little dehydration. Meals can come to life at any campsite with just a bit of boiling water. Once you  start dehydrating your own meals, you’ll never want to settle for store bought backpacking meals again!
