Kemi – Feb 16

We have a lazy morning. A late breakfast and then hanging out waiting for our 11:45 pickup for the olokolo sleigh ride. It’s not snowing but it sure looks like it is going to. And the wind is blowing. Generally, a good morning to hang out. We’re head for the lobby at 11:45 and our […]

Kemi – 2/15/2020

Up late. Somehow I slept right through my phone alarm. I’ve never done that before. Barbara heard it and, when I didn’t respond, she turned it off and went back to sleep. We’re getting a late start but it’s only about 4 hours to Kemi, our stop for the next couple of nights and we […]

Kokkola – 2/14/2020

Amsterdam – 2/11/2020

The flight to Amsterdam is on KLM and we stop at the Gate to check that our boarding passes are legit. The KLM agent says they are fine but she changes Barbara’s seat from the middle seat to a window seat which leaves the middle seat open, a nice change. We board. I check the […]

Fort Mill – 2/10/2020

We’re leaving for Finland. I was supposed to do the 2020 Alcan 5000 but I wasn’t needed for staff and although I have a great offer to compete in the rally, I decided to pass for the first time in years. I didn’t have a co-driver, Barbara wasn’t too keen to be a co-driver again […]
