Anyway, I had a brilliant idea, we are going to put our own 3-person tent up for this cyclist who said he'd turn up around 10pm (it's daylight all night here). This will save him having to put his own up, and save him having to pack it away in the morning. If his own tent is damp he can open it in the sauna to dry. Bottom bearing of my blue bike re-greased so I'll cycle to the village limits and pilot him in.
Little does he know what he’s let himself in for.
Yes, he was happy to use our tent. It's a 3-person tent so palatial for one. And Pirkko's Thermarest mat to save him having to dig his own out. All good, food provided, and a beer, and few mosquitoes on the verandah/terrace. Pirkko has bought a device to keep them at bay and it seems to work. He has ridden here from Helsinki in 4 days, that's about 90 miles/day.
Quiet minds cannot be perplexed or frightened but go on in fortune or misfortune at their own private pace, like a clock during a thunderstorm.
I hope that I never become famous and someone trawls my contributions on this site looking for the odd post which may be offensive.
