Lapland Part 1

Yes ! I’m still here and still kickin!

I needed a break from the daily mindset of cancer and since my last post back in July 2017 which was pretty grim I’m feeling fit as a fiddle. Sure, had a few ups and downs but who hasn’t ? Since then I have done my bit of traveling, made a short film on the benefits of exercise dealing with cancer, recorded 5 episodes of my upcoming Podcast “ Cancer Confidential” and of course upgrading my web page.

You can get the links here shortly, so always stay tuned for this Dude will abide.

The travels include the Azores, Newfoundland, Lapland, 60 miles above the arctic circle and of course my home stomping grounds, The Adirondack Mountains woohoo ! Of course new travels on the near horizon that include Stockholm, Lisbon and Faial, Azores.

So lets get started with some images of my travels to Lapland.

Drive from Luleå 2 hours northwest to Jokkmokk and then Flying in by helicopter from Ritsem to Staluluokta., About 60 miles above the Arctic Circle.
