2011 Trip – Day 2

Distance Average Speed Max Speed
35.8 km 9.9 km/h 32.5 km/h

Conditions very poor.  The base of the snow has melted and the surface of many trails is prone to collapse.  I chose a trail through the forest and going was very slow.  I must only stick to the main trails when the sledge is heavy.

Lunch and siesta at Jänisvaara.  Timo dropped off a new gas cylinder.

The afternoon running was better, but the dogs were getting tired.  I went very close to Jussi’s place and travelled back mostly on snowmobile trails which were practically the only reliable routes.

In the evening I tried to read Alan’s unpublished book (Green & White).  I think it could be described as a bit of a curate’s egg.
