Hamburgsund, Sweden.

A car ferry with a 130 meters long crossing, do you know of any shorter than this?

Yes, the 75 meter crossing Högsäterleden in the county of Värmland. It's the shortest public ferry crossing in Sweden.


More info [Swedish]

Netherlands has some really short ferry crossings. Reason is that channels must be kept open to navigation with some specified clearance so bridges must be tall or movable (= expensive)

Examples: 1 (82m) and 2 (114m). Actually, the second one is a rather serious gap that needs a tunnel ASAP.

It is a punt actually, but it can take a car as well and and there are around 10 cars daily.

Why is your room temperature so high?

Yeah, I'm getting sweaty just looking at that. Anything over 20 is too hot for me

OMG almost 26°C....

In my appartment I adjusted the heating so it will only start when it's under 15°C,for example this night, it only went to 17°C and I didn't used it... (In my room I use a big confortable duvet and I sleep fine ).

The main advantage of a low heating is the difference with outside is much lower (compred to 25°C, 15°C is 10°C of difference that you won't feel when you go outside! )

It was the mid-room temperature in a room where walls were cold because of no heating for several weeks. The starting inside temperature on Wednesday was -17. The remote controlled heating capacity was able to raise the temperature to +10 only. Therefore, I turned on 4 kW extra heating fans yesterday evening. Now, I have dropped the temp to the normal +22, because the walls are now warm. Warming up a freezing cold house needs this kind of a shock wave approach.

Be careful, fan heaters are really the worse : their heating efficiency is very poor, all the heat is going on the top of the appartment/house (it cost a lot for a poor result) and it makes the air becoming very dry...

The best is to look at something that keeps the heat inside (like oil bath heaters and the others much better that we make now), but convectors/fan heaters are really the worse kind of heating...

I assume that's your mökki (holiday cottage) then?

Don't worry. At these latitudes, we know rather well how to heat the houses and how to keep the warmth inside.

Short ferry crossings in Italy:

Adda river near Imbersago: circa 80m

Mouth of Livenza river between Caorle and Porto Santa Margherita (active only in summer): circa 140m

Ravenna harbour canal: circa 140m

True. The chimney sweeper visited in the morning (mandatory every 3rd year by law), and I traveled here yesterday for preparations. Usually, we do not stay here if the temperature drops under -20. According to the weather forecasts, the temperature will soon raise a lot, and the weekend will be nice -5...-2 degrees.

Has anyone used regularly OSM as route planner? What do you think about its reliability? Does it usually suggest the most logical route or leads you through small and slow local roads?

I wouldn't recommend it. Its reliability is strongly influenced by the density of road mapped, which in turn is strongly dependent on how many good mappers are in a determined area...
