30.12.2007 Common training

At the top of Helsinki...
The Christmas was behind and it was time for the last common training of 2007 and also to start to burn the extra calories consumed during the feast. In a fresh Saturday morning rain we started to "climb" with loaded rucksacks to the highest point of Helsinki, the "Jätemäki" in Malminkartano. After 470 steps we reached the top and there the rain was accompanied by gusty wind. Three hours later with aching thighs we decided that climbing those 470 steps over 20 times we can call it a workout.

The weather forecast is finally providing some hope about sub zero temperatures and hopefully some snow to the southern Finland also.

The expedition wishes everyone top feelings for the year 2008.
