First ride after winter/ skiing season. I was cycling on the road ´cause my mtb has it´s problems. Too many kilometers done with it. Time to look forward and a new bike for off road rides. Even a thouhg about having a new bike brings so much positive energy for me !

Snow is hard enough to ski where ever you want. I try to go and find some nice new nature spots to seen. Also spending my last days somwhere here. Now, when writing this, I´ve already packed some stuff. I´m moving to countryside. Summer plans are still bit open. We´ll see !

Spending rehabilitation holiday at Saariselkä. Winter, Lapland, snow, sun . The place with it´s surroundings takes all your worries away. Letting you focus just for the current moment. Past has gone. Future is in future. Here and now is good!

Belive it or not but sometimes I´m like these cats ! When visited my "possible next summer temporary accomodation" I was all but lazy. Or well, I wish I could have done more. There´s the fact that life at countryside is not boring. You always find something usefull to do, like fixing or renovating. That´s so suitable for my peronality. I need to keep going on!
BTW: The horse equipments (inqluding stable cats) you see in my picture belongs to my sister´s life. Not mine .

After two years off I went back to try ski orienteering. Weather was perfectly warm and sunny. Course was enough easily orienteering for my rusty brains. On the other hand there were some difficult sections on technical side. It was easy to take short cuts as snow was hard enough to carry me. But at the same time it was difficult to slow down the speed. I amazed myself: zero fall downs for me . Even I had a nice experience I´m not making any comeback to races. Sometimes when, I´m feeling ok and I´ve got the time, it´s possible that I´ll take a part for events. Keeping the speed on comfortable zone has occured to be very hard in reality. I´m still learning this, life you know .

One of the snowiest place in Finland currently is Punkaharju with 60cm snow. I went to ski there. Lovely weather and perfect track ! (https://www.harjureitit.net/)

2019 first mtbo camp was held in Lohja. We stayed in a local sport institute resort. As Finland has some snow during winter it meant that some trainings on bike were bit hard. For me, without a bike, it was easier. Only one time the snow bothered bit my tasks. It was when I took some controls to forest and tried to move fast in a deep snow. My other tasks were easier ones, like muscle maintenance and controlling trainings for athletes.

Aurora hunting safaris are sometimes more succesful than in other days... Anyways, working outdoors is one of the best works you can imagine! Especially with great firends .

Love this real winter with snow and landscape ! I´m waiting to get myself in better condition, I´d want to go and ski... "Better to see than be sorry". So I´ll wait.
