The skiing was fun and from ski hill lot to hotel room in about 15 mins. Nice on the hill at 70 degrees and the Snowbowl has some pretty fun runs. Sounds like you guys had quite the adventure, must of been a bit scary to be on that kind of deadline and having to rearrange a few times. Hopefully all the bike parts get to the destination at the same time and you will be riding again soon. Did you buy any extra parts for the toasty 400??? This has been fun to follow and to see the sort of pioneering you are doing as far as getting a bike to the arctic circle. WR Dave.
