pre "race" nerves!!

sundays the big race - the sesilÄmi!! a 52k "race" across the fjells on
lightweight langrenn skis
- i say "race", its going to take a long time....so i'm glad the clocks have given me an extra hour of daylight!! wish me luck - will let you know how it goes next week - local weather conditions changed last sunday with a warm snap coming in - more snow and unsettled weather so not sure what it'll be like on the day (scroll to the bottom for forecast). kick off is about 9.15 and hope to be home intime for tea, we'll see

Weekends fun!

This is more like what its like here at the moment - went for a easy ski trek up to one of the local cabins at the weekend - Sandvatn and then onto Langavatn - cameras currently in the shop being fixed after some offpiste exploits so no photos - have to make do with this shot of Tomansbu on the otherside of the valley instead - infact taken last year - seems to be more snow around then aswell, despite the weather here in stavanger being colder for longer than either of the past 2 years! first steps on a frozen lake always fun ;~)

Feistein fyr tur

nothing like what the weather is like here today (snow down to the sea!!) but just had to blog this beautiful kayak tour i made last autumn out to the lighthouse on the horizon about 4km into the norwegian north sea, lots of tufted duck and cormorants, remember the waves being a little bit tricky but a fantastic wave surf back onto the beach just in time for a sundowner on the sand!!

Imja-Tse Virtual or Real

Thought this was a fascinating comparison of how close the virtual trip is - below taken "in the flesh" in 98 and the other from Google earth - Lhotse / Nuptse face from middle to the left and Imja-Tse (6189m) under the "l" of Real!!

Ski touring in the wonderful mountainous Jotunheimen region of central norway - possibilities are endless - so perhaps a return is necessary ;~)
