Day 25: A taste of icing..

Light air/light breeze Partly cloudy
67.16551°N -49.64680°W | 882 m | Distance today: 29km | Total distance: 542km of approx. 600km

At the moment, we are moving in an area filled up with blue ice (icy terrain). But anyway, even if skiing conditions requiring soft skiwax, we can still manage quite well. And there are only 19 km to cover, before leaving the ice cap!  Tonight the boys are sleeping in the open air. Otherwise we can tell you that Kristine is hoping to join the bicycle race Trondheim- Oslo (540 km, exactly the same distance she has been skiing so far on the ice cap), and Maria is going to make a third attempt climbing Kebnekaise, the highest mountain in Sweden.

The correct answer of the informal "toilet paper"-competition is 13 rolls. The lucky winner is Alex, and a result of this he is getting an extra package of Real to his loving companion, Ulrike.
