Tomorrow is the day when I complete the huge part of my adventure/expedition: hiking, packrafting and skiing the length of Norway, from Lindesnes to Nordkinn. And now I'm rushing. Weather is about to break on Sunday morning, it's the last call for pictures and filming, otherwise I won't see a thing. For the last two hours I've been fixing my skis. Why? I had to buy new skins. And? Perhaps it's nothing, take out of the box, replace and go. Not really. Btw, new bindings (skipping the fact I'm having issues with them) a week ago, now new skins. Who does that at the end of winter?? Package that arrived yesterday to Mehamn contained wrong size. Yeah, I got wrong skins. No, I can't buy them anywhere. It's Finnmark. The nearest shop would be like 700km. Buying online from south of Norway 1-3 weeks awaiting as locals say, depending on weather. After the shitstorm of trouble I'd be shocked if they were right. Length is fine but they're too wide, so with surgical precision I need to cut them right (60mm to 45mm of the width, 200cm long). I thought I'll use my razor's blade but I was given one perfect tool from someone cool. The problem was the front clip. It would slide way too far down (60mm wide instead of 45mm). Taping around inside the frame was a solution and I left the old one there to prevent.
Nordkyn Peninsula (Nordkinnhalvøy) is what you can see in the background. Picture taken one evening 2 or 3 days ago. Up and down, up and down.
