Welcome to a moose-themed meetup in Ed … ! We will be visiting the Dalsland Moose Ranch where we will be able to see the moose up close and even interact with them as we will be participating in a feeding session at 11am (supervised by the ranch staff, of course). You can read more about the ranch here: Dalslands Moose Ranch: Experience moose in Dalsland in their natural home

We will also find time for some postcard shopping around town. Our local host @arcticgirl64 will show us the places to go. The ranch has a cafe where we are planning to sit down to have some lunch and sign our postcards.

There will of course be a moose themed meetup card for this meetup! Watch this space :wink:

This same weekend the town of Ed will be hosting Sweden’s largest country music festival, for those who are interested in this, you can read more here: http://www.edscountryfest.se/

Please let us know in this thread if you are interested in or planning to attend. :slight_smile:

Ed is only 30 min drive from the border to Norway at Kornsjø. There is train (VY) going here from Oslo (towards Gøteborg). Take just over two hours. Train from Gøteborg to Ed takes about 1 hr 40 minute.

This meeting plan sounds amazing. You guys are tempting me! :smile:

Accomodation:

In addition to the rental apartment in my housing association, nok 150,- per night (not per person)I have book the one in a friend’s association as well. This costs sek 100,- per night. Guess it’s room for 2-3 persons. I have also room for a couple to sleep in our apartment.

Count me in.
On a side note - Am I the only Swede to sign up this far?

Yes

I’m afraid so … ! :smile: You should promote it to your Postcrossing countrymen. But it’s unfortunately pretty normal that meetups in Sweden are mostly Norwegians :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
