    as of 22nd, the forecasts all agree it will get cold. How cold is another question... yr currently state around -6, which would be good. https://www.yr.no/place/Finland/Eastern_Finland/Vesanto/long.html fmi agrees: https://ilmatieteenlaitos.fi/saa/vesanto?forecast=long .. and then foreca is similar: https://www.foreca.fi/Finland/Vesanto/15vrk Let's see what happens. A few days of plus will not cause us too many problems. - Bret

    all of your registrations are with Aki (I asked for a list earlier and got one), with the exception of Madcek. The group size is compact this year, with around 10-15 cars, I will work on that one in the next days. - Bret

    I got a picture from Trackmeister yesterday of the Beetle on the ice. He reports 28cm ice. It was seriously cold Thursday evening and Friday, that's helped a lot. As far as he is concerned, we are good to go. There is only one minor problem (which is mine and his): there's no snow on the ice to mark out a track. That's great news for the ice thickness as it will get thicker faster with no insulation, but it does mean we would actually like *some* snow in the next week or so, If you haven't already booked with Aki and want to join, please do so. - Bret

    we went through this in some detail last year: for him, the quad is an option, and it's the easiest one, but slow; the small tractor is the next good option and a lot faster. Also: with weight pushed onto the ice via the plough, there's a better distribution than just on the wheels... I went through this in detail over Christmas with a relative and I'm astounded at the level of ingenuity I hear about to get the ice clear as early as possible. - Bret

    agreed. I spoke with Trackmeister earlier, he appears to have the track free so it can ice. But there's still only 10cm, which isn't really enough. We will talk again soon. He is still hopeful that there will be a track and it will be driveable. I will try to get hold of Aki tomorrow, it's a public holiday here. - Bret

    habe ein Termin mit Trackmeister um den Trackzustand zu besprechen morgen. Wenn er das geschafft hat vor 2 Wochen auszugraben, dürfte es noch gehen. Sonst wird's knapp; -8 ist gut aber mehr wäre sehr nützlich. Iisvesi und Pielävesi haben genug - 16 bzw. 23cm - aber er will sicherlich 30cm sehen. Weiches Eis hilft uns auch nur bedingt. -5 Nachts und Tagsüber 0 geht halbwegs, denn das Wasser ist schon kühl. Aber viel dicker wird der Eisschicht dadurch nicht. Ich melde mich nachdem ich mit ihm gesprochen habe. - Bret
  9. ja, passt. calling @HellSoldier und noch ein paar anderen... - Bret

    finally got hold of him. He seems to think he has 12-14 registrations, which is about right according to my calculations. In other words, your emails have arrived even if you haven't got the replies back yet. - Bret

    ok. I tried to call him the other day, he did not yet call me back. I will try to find time tomorrow. In other news, I was wondering about the ice situation - it looks like Iisvesi already has 9 cm, which is *really* good. 17cm snow also already at Vesanto, here there's just a sprinkling. Happy I'm not travelling again until probably early January.... - Bret

    Wetter hier im Süden inzwischen voll auf Winter eingestellt. Noch schwankt es zwischen + und -, aber nicht viel. Eissituation ist noch "normal", sprich noch gar keiner, aber das wird sich auch noch ändern. Newbies herzlich willkommen! - Bret
