I just booked the last place on this adventure and can't wait to get going, roll on Jan 29th!
Would like to hear from anyone else who is on the trip!
Sorry - almost but not quite! We (husband and I) are going on the same trip, but a week before you. We don't know who else is on our trip, but it'd be great to hear from anyone on either your trip of the 29th, or our trip of the 22nd. I am looking forward to this trip so much...the snow, the dogs, and hopefully the northern lights!
Your not alone Lee - I'm on the trip on 29th Jan and really looking forward to it. I spent a weekend dogsledding last January in Finland with Exodus and loved it so much I wanted more! (well actually I missed the plane - I managed to get the next flight (at no extra cost) and stayed in Helsinki overnight then travelled on and finally got a taxi to the wilderness centre) - a long way for only a day but well worth it On the way home I sat on the plane smiling like a Cheshire cat...... one of the best holidays I had - - I'm certainly not going to miss the flight this time! - Sadly I didn't get to see the northern lights as I was further south, so am really hoping to see the northern lights this time round.
Thanks for the reply. I'm glad to hear its not just me, the guide and a bunch of dogs! :)
From what you wrote it sounds great and I'm looking forward to it even more than before, lets just hope those Northern Lights put on a good show. I'm currently buying all my gear (never knew how expensive it was) and 'researching' by watching 71 Degrees North!
thought I'd have a look to see if anyone else going on the trip has posted any comments! - oops no-one -
Re the gear Lee - the artic gear that is provided is good, a bit limited in sizes though - I'm only 5' and the only one left for me was probably for a 6' bloke - so was a bit long - but once your out with the dogs who cares! - but bring plenty of gloves socks and hats - it may be difficult to dry them as we are moving on each day. Layering is best too. Elaine
I've been keeping a watchful eye on this forum but sadly no one else has responded who is on our trip. I'm booked on via The Adventure Company so the others may not know to look here.
Thanks for the information, I will get a couple more hats and gloves to bring with me. If anyone has shares in Cotswold Outdoors then they are in for a bumper payout following all my trips to their chain of shops :) I have to do more adventures after this one to get my moneys worth!
With a following wind I'm 5'3" so I can see a mad scramble coming for the artic gear.
Have you got all your items?
Hi Lee - I'm not so organised as you.... I've got to practise what I preach and get those gloves and socks this weekend. I have salopettes from ski-ing so will bring them too. The good thing about this kind of holiday is no-one cares what they look like - they just want to be warm! I contacted Exodus this morning and there are 7 people going - 1 couple and the rest on their own. As normal I'm the oldie going - everyone else is in their 30's and 40's - I'm 61 but don't worry I kept up with everyone before! See you on the 29th - Elaine
Nice bit of detective work in finding out who's going, sounds like we have a nice group diversity and I'm sure we'll have a great time.
Following your email I decided to test my rucksack packing abilities, either I failed badly or I have too much stuff! I will try again another day....
Are you flying from Heathrow on the 29th?
Good News that you've got everything sorted, hope you have a great time.
Oh, I think it will be a bit chilly for you next week - http://www.foreca.com/Finland/Muonio?tenday
Oh my gosh...that is freezing! Well, technically, well below freezing! ;-)
I have started packing my suitcase and having seen that forecast, I think I will throw in a few extra fleeces. I think I might be wearing several at one time!
Only two more work days to go, then the flights......Yippee!
