Stångehuvud - a small pond within the rocky scene.

The stage the day before was really tough and we felt every bone in our body when we woke up. But at least we had a warm cabin and we were really happy about that. A lot of camper buses were on the camping ground but the lady at the reception told us that for the cabin nobody was coming…
