We would like to congratulate our colleague Kaloyan Peychev ‘Kofe’ with the success of his big summer project “The Big E”. Kaloyan completed the three longest marked mountain routes in Bulgaria in 26 days. With a total length of almost 1300km and more than 85000m altitude difference the route “Big E” was a great challenge in one of the wettest summers in years in Bulgaria. Rain, thunderstorms and all kinds of mud accompanied this 26 days experience. The lack of a planned support team and pacers made the value of this accomplishment even greater!
