I had my first chance to get out and about on the snow mobile on Friday, driving about 50kms in total.
Here’s a picture I took at midday and shows quite well that the sun is now only just appearing over the horizon (but at 7:30am we have blue sky)
Knowing that I would be cooking coffee later in the day I collected firelighting material in advance. The temperature was only -13 so this Old Mans Beard lichen was a little damp.
I put damp firelighting material in my shirt for at least one and a half hours and my body heat helps to dry it, so when I was ready to make fire the material was dry
One of my tasks while out was to find a Christmas tree (Jul gran in Swedish) and after a lot of searching I found a nice shaped tree
The tree looked really good once Teres had decorated it
