Alone through Värmland

Eight months earlier I had arrived to Charlottenberg with Allan, but now when I had planned to continue further north I was alone. But weather was perfect, warm and cloudless, and this I took as a good sign when I walked out of Charlottenberg. It had taken me eight hours to get here by train, and I had a distance of ten kilometres before I reached the first planned campsite, so even though it was late in the evening the sun had just barely set when I reached the first planned campsite at Billan.
