Today they left Ammarnäs hostel, where they filled up with both food to themselves and to the dogs.
The point was not that they should have stayed here the night between Sunday and Monday but weather report promised rain, they did not have all the equipment wet again when for many nights to come will have to do quite a solo.
They had nice run yesterday, but a bit warm. In the afternoon they left the mountains to come down in the valley when it was cooler and clearly showed the dogs a new ignition. They can tell that they work better at lower temperatures. So would it be too hot now, they will run in the early morning and late at night, resting during the day.
When they leave Ammarnäs, they are not sure which of the routes they will take it there's two, King's Trail and Pajala trail. But we will soon notice. The next food depot is Jäkkvik.
The heat has also been hard on the snow layer up but the hope is clearly that it should remain in snow so they can complete their trip.
