Journeys

Motorway E75 in KotikangasThis morning I’m supposed to leave for a journey by motorcycle to Lapland. But from my page about the weather in Oulu I read:

Report for Oulu, Finland.

Last update: 29 minutes ago, at 05:50 EET.

Wind: 2.1 meters per second from southeast (140°).

Temperature: 0 °C

The temperature felt like -3 °C.

Pressure: 1026 hPa.

The sky was overcast from a height of 30 meter Visibility: 250 meter.

The visibility was 550 meters with no distinct tendency for runway 12 and 625 meters with no distinct tendency for runway 30.

Weather condition: fog.

A little bit foggy, in’it? And feels like -3°C? Voi että! But I’ll leave anyway. If I get frozen, I will miss the whole winter and wake up fresh and ready the next spring… mmm it sounds interesting…

Update (21:08): Just got back (+3° now outside). After all I did it. The journey was: Oulu – Kemi – Rovaniemi – Övertorneå – Haparanda – Kemi – Oulu for a total amount of 590 km. A bit foggy, always cloudy, but it was great! And I have also been in Pisa!
