This morning I was taken by surprise in many ways . Yesterday evening, I let most of my packing stay on the bike, and just brought inside the cottage what was needed for the night. As I was eating a very tastful meal at Tankavaara Gold-Village and was getting breakfast there as well - I did not bring food inside. So - whom did I meet when I was leaving the cottage in the morning - sitting at the front of the bike, still chewing?
Yes! A squirrel had actually opened the bags on the bike - unfortunately not really gently - and had come over 300 g of choclate cookies
Well, after repairing the bags as good as it could be done with tape, I finally started off towards Sodankylä - about 100km to go - I hope I will get there before night.
When such a big distance waits, it is good to know, that I have been offered a place to stay over night - at Camping Sodankylä Nilimella. www.nilimella.fi. Juho Vuontisvaara did agree to offer a cottage - despite the fact that the camping site had already closed its reception for the season - that was really supporting and wonderful. Thank you Juho and Nilimella!!!
By the way: here is the article that was published in Inarilainen 3 october 2012:
