Today I started the first stage and I come, all the sudden, inside the atmosphere of Polar expedition. I'm absolutely happy. And happier after the tension of the last days: my luggage and equipment was missed till yesterday. So today, I've been checking all the materials and I started at 10.30am from IVALO ....Me, Myself and I, and my dear friend the sledge...Destination Seevetijarvi, on the other side of the lake. I go up the river IVALO during 2 hours.
The landscape was awesome, with the forest and the colorful houses along the way. When I arrived at the lake, I was surprised by the magnificent views: A great extension of iced water splashed by small islands.
The temperature was fine, between -10 and -18 degrees. I did 26Km in 6 hours... quite fast for me... the prize was a hit with a nice fire. Tomorrow I will wake up early and I'll do it more relaxed.
Now I'm having a rest in front of the fire, alone, in peace, only with the wild nature. I'm happy! ...Thank you for following me!!
