Since a while, I've been planning my visit to Finland with Arkelion and spend time with awesomesauce TwilitTiger in real life finally. Meantime I'll be participating as a photographer of IFFS European Championship Sled Dog races with Igor Tracz's sled dog team- and that race will be happening on 6th-9th March (we'll be from 7th to 9th).
Here is the website of races if anybody is interested: ec2014.vul.fi/
I must say, I'm very excited for this little adventurous experience and very happy to visit Finland- where my half of bloodline is Finnish (and so is my last name). A hello for awesome Finnish people
However, unfortunately things are starting to be more complicated. Since we, located at Helsinki area have to get to Metsakartano (Rautavaara) but the problem is that we cannot get without car (the closest railway station is 40km away, so basically we are missing any transportation by that amount) and my musher friends can't pick up us due to stake-out and so on.
I was wondering if there is anybody who is from Finland (or who is outside, but interested to visit that race) that can drive a car, and is interested to see race- would like to join with us and we all could get to that place for a couple days? We all are more than willing to share costs of gas and accomondation
I'd absolutely recommend going up on that race, it will be amazing experience. Plus, you'll get to meet our top mushers and dogs!
Just we thought that it doesn't hurt to ask
