  3. 3. Wednesday the 2/3- 2011 The things we should bring were scattered all over the house. We felt stressed and wondered if we really would be ready in time.
  4. 4. Saturday the 5/3, sunny and -12 degrees centigrade. At last we will soon be on our way. Some things are still to be put in the sledge bags, the dogs shall have their harnesses on and be put in front of the sledges, then we will be off.
  5. 5. The dogs are excited and eager to get out
  6. 6. Håkan thought he knew the first part by hart so he didn’t use any map. Instead of turning back as we realized we were lost we had a hysteric trip through the woods. There were tracks, and probably scent, from reindeer so the dogs were extra excited. This steep hill was at the end of this first part.
  7. 7. The relief was great as we finally left the woods and reached Dalälven. The dogs worked really hard and the speed was good. After about 1/2h it started to snow and the wind was quite hard. The snow and the wind stung our faces and it was hard to see. This was the only time that Christina used the ski googles.

  16. 16. As we were on our way to Rogenstugan Håkan crushed into a trail cross so the sledge was broken. The nice host at the cottage gave us an old cottage sign which Håkan used to fix the sledge.
