Uneventful trip on Ferry.  Long wait at Helsinki railway station.  Thought had compartment to self, but slightly drunk Finnish dock worker appeared just after train had started.  Got some sleep, but train seemed to have square wheels.

Got sled sorted out quite quickly and after helping to get a couple of other groups off I left after lunch.  Headed N and found Marco’s special route never driven before.  Went all way to near road and then back via Jänisvaara.  Very tired and soon to sleep.  Lots of snow during day and night.
