Top-to-toe nylon, as promised
|So stylish... (I do like my hat, though.)|
So, last week Mr Robot and I went for a session driving huskies. We booked through a firm called Into The Blue, but the people who own the dogs and host the experience are Arctic Quest and you can book direct with them. It's not really an occasion for dressing up, so I piled on lots of wool and topped it all off with waterproof coat and trousers.
This little madam, Willow, ran off to investigate rabbit fur when she was pulling me! I tried to avoid hitting her when she came back and overturned the dog trike. Good job you get helmets and joint pads, eh?

|Our home for the night|
We stayed overnight in a Sami tipi. It has a wood burner inside, so when we woke up the next morning I lit the fire and got straight back in my sleeping bag! Arctic Quest provide proper arctic sleeping bags, booties, throws and so on, and everything you need to cook with. We cooked our evening meal outside, though.
|A cold morning - the lake is frozen and there's snow on the hills!|
Trip was fully paid for - it was Mr Robot's birthday present last year.
