Three course dinner

At this writing  our adventurers  is enjoying a three-course dinner in Saltoluokta, where they have rested the dogs and themselves since Sunday evening. They figure to go again tomorrow morning early, and hope that
after two days of heat wave that there should be snow left all the way up to the final destination. Upon arrival, it rained: (

Yesterday (Sunday) they drove away Rapadalen to Saltoluokta, then the trail went over a steep mountain Decision Christina and Hakan to save the dogs as much as possible, they drove around, instead, this was 23 km extra, but the dogs loved the ground that was variable with no major differences in elevation.

The last few days, they have been up for about 60 km each day, it has been perfect weather and super nice terrain. Just such a terrain that dogs love so they have average of 10 km / h.

First reindeer they have now encountered, Christina would try to take pictures, but of course got the dogs right at this moment get wind of the reindeer. Luckily, Christina got a stop on the team is well ahead
of the first reindeer.

They met Laila Nilsson and his family reside in Kvikkjokks mountain.
Laila managed to take some really nice pictures of them and has sent them to me.

A lot of coffee breaks has indeed Christina and Hakan had time for, hm really wonder if it might be good for weight, Hakan. When they drove past Pårtestugan (Saturday) was they were met by Berta, who is hosting
the cottage. Invited for coffee and cakes, and yesterday they stopped at the cottage in Sitojaure Anders gave us homemade carrot cake and coffee ...

Looking ahead, there will be mountain huts every mil so from now it willnot go as much gasoline (as they drove through the nature reserve so it can not burn wood) to get to the water for the dogs.
That's it for this time / / Pernilla
