    Turner, what are you guys doing at the winter market? Selling/displaying, or shopping?

    And is this connected to the bushcraftuk arctic expedition? Are you a guide?

    From those going from BCUK, we've mostly all done the arctic exped before or lead parties professionally. I did the exped last year.
    This is on BCUK as "Jokkmokk meet"
    I'm not a guide.

    I'm just a shopper, really only going to check out the market, explore the area and meet up with the BCUK'ers there before starting the trip proper up north. A few days to acclimatise too.

    Sorry Turner, between work and hunting, it doesn't look like I'll get off more than 15-18 feb, the 15th and 18th will exclusively be for driving 700 km.

    It would have been cool, but the driving time / hanging time ratio doesn't make it fun for me, so I'll pass this time.

    Stupid work, always getting in the way of the really important things.

    No probs Joz, thanks for letting me know

    If you or anybody else changes their mind and wants to join in the epic artic hanging fun, it won't be too late til a couple of days before I leave.

    I'm on the Spot GPS website after the 11th Feb, so you can see where abouts in Sweden I'm frozen solid into my hammock.
