LLT: Parkbos Gent

The last “Lustige Lochtingterters” (LLT) hike of the year takes us to my own “backyard”, i.e. Parkbos Gent, Westerplas and the village of Sint-Martens-Latem. Conditions couldn’t possibly be better to offer us a true LLT experience thanks to intense downpours of rain, flooded trails, slippery duckboards, remains of snow and ice, mud and low temperatures …

One of the members of the group is celebrating his 80th birthday and to everyone’s surprise he manages to walk the entire 20+ km without issues.

LLT: Jodoigne

After a windy and rainy episode I make a 20.5 km hike with the gang of the “Lustige Lochtingterters” through the slightly hilly pastoral landscape in the vicinity of Jodoigne / Geldenaken, crossing the language border on a number of occasions. Trails are seriously muddy, but apart from the odd shower towards the end of the day, weather holds up pretty nicely.
