After having been away for more than a week our cat suddenly came home again. She ate a lot and when done she was totally relaxed.

Trying to access http://www.dagbladet.no/ just now it responded with Error Bad Gateway 502. Whatever reason for the error, I found the custom error page really nice

Bysprinten Mosjøen 2017

May 1st, 2017

Two days ago, Bysprinten Mosjøen 2017, for the 11'th time with my mother in the arrangement committee each year it was finally time for me to actually be there. Had a great time, nice weather all the time made it a superb event.

The start of the prologue

The race

Øystein "Pølsa" Pettersen and Nils Ingar "Nilsie" Aadne realized that they had no chance winning, so in the final they headed right to the hot tub.

Exploring Sund / Sundsmarka

May 1st, 2017

Spent last Friday working from Sund, the place where I grew up just outside of Hemnesberget. After having spent several hours troubleshooting it was a relief that I finally could head out for a quick run. Still a lot of snow in the mountains so running to the hills was not really an option, but then I realized that I could not even remember having been to Sundsmarka ever, always a first time for everything. So first goal was Sundsfjellet, photo taken towards Hemnesberget with Sundsholmen in the middle.

And here at Memmerhaugan (never knew the name, but found it on the map) towards Prestenget, Ramnflåget and way behind Snøfjellet

Exploring Kulstadåsen / Mosjøen

May 1st, 2017

Last Thursday after having spent 13 hours sitting on the train from Oslo to Mosjøen, and a couple of hours sleep I needed to go for a quick run. The weather was very good, actually still pretty hard snow which made it easy to run (should have had more time and a pair of skis...).

Redneck repairing the sand digger

April 23rd, 2017

The screw holes holding the bucket had become worn out and since #3 wanted to use it right there and now and I had no disks available I had to find alternative solutions. So, found an old fish ball tin can, did cut of the bottom and did bend it around the bucket. Voila!! Ready for digging...

Beer tasting at Hellesylt Boutique & Bar

April 16th, 2017

Last Thursday, beer tasting at Hellesylt Boutique & Bar. All beer from Geiranger Bryggeri. Ok, not so much "beer tasting" as "beer drinking", so a good thing that I can read all the details here instead

The white topped chocolate serverd along with Helvetesjølet was named after Kvitegga

Garden tending the last week

April 10th, 2017

The last couple of days, done some garden tending. First pulling up a tree root, no problem when I have a tractor and plenty of tow rope.

#3 helping me out cutting the apple trees

Front loader is such a Swiss army knife, can be used for anything, also multiple garden tending tasks.

Always taking care of my own security, what could possibly go wrong here?
