Apologies for rather late thread for the annual Icetrackmeet.

As title might suggest, we're heading for Pudasjärvi again. And as far as track reservations go, we got the airfield for Saturday and Sunday again. But despite this there should be more on offer compared to last year.

The tentative schedule:
Wednesday
- People passing through Helsinki would have the option of visiting a proper smoke sauna. And a swim in an ice lake. 12eur/person, open until 20.00 and I can definitely recommend, and likely join as well. Or if the schedule doesn't match I'll just fire up my sauna for all guests.
Thursday
- dedicated for getting to our lovely meet spot in the middle of Finland (and nowhere).
Friday
-Yet unconfirmed, but there should be short tourist fligths available straight from cabin backyard.
-Like previous years, renting snowmobiles is a thing.
Saturday-Sunday
-Playing around at the track, eating one moose, the usual shanigans
Monday
-Somber return home. Possibly/hopefully some good burgers in Oulu on the way back

So all in all very similar to previous years, if you've ever been. I'm expecting some beaters (other than mine), many imported drinks, sauna and good tiems. :mrgreen:

Desperate to join you guys but next year is out. Already got a week in Romania in April visiting HWF 3.0's old lodger and her family, and hoping to tie the knot and do 2 weeks honeymoon/roadtrip Dallas-New Orleans in the fall.

I'd like to join again, but I need more action than last time. A sightseeing flight from the airfield sounds very awesome, and a very cold way to die. :D
So, I'd like to hear more detailed plans about what we're going to do at the airfield. :)

My options for actually getting to Pudasjärvi are:
  1. Be insane and join a beater from Britain as a co-driver as they pass my town anyway, then fly back one-way. Needs some Brit to do a beater roadtrip (@Matt2000 / @Davetouch / @Peter3hg ?) and willing to take me as co-driver.
  2. Be utterly mad and take my MX-5 with non-studded tyres on a roadtrip into the cold. Definitely need a co-driver (@shad_68 ? @DaHitch ? @Eye-Q ?) and preferrably someone to convoy with (@leviathan ?).
    1. Take the route via Sweden - 2500 km each way. Possibly joint convoy with the Norwegians (@Adrian / @larswey / @TobiasG ?) from Stockholm about-ish.
    2. Take the ferry from Travemünde to Helsinki (and back). Holy shit too expensive (as in 1.5 * price of flight to Oulu, or even more when going alone).
  3. Be boring and fly in. Would appreciate someone to share a rental from Oulu airport with.
Option 3 is the cheapest, but also too boring. If nothing opens up regarding the other options, I'm likely to stay home this time.

Anything that involves booking a ferry or a flight would be very nice to know soonish, as those things mostly don't get any cheaper. So, if anyone feels like joining me in one capacity or the other, please contact me. :)

If you and @leviathan decide on a car(s) and got time to join with our Berlin forces, my doors are open for a break, before continuing north.

Options 2 and 3 are out. So, either I get a ride with the Brits and an affordable flight back on Monday, or I'm not attending.
