Here they're just supposed to learn handling weapons and skis at the same time. They ski ahead in the tracks, and stop every 15 meters or so and fire 3-4 rounds at the targets some 150 meters ahead. Sounds easy, but try doing this in -29, with skis, ski poles etc, while at the same time keeping track of their comrades in the side lanes, thinking about security and so on. If you have never done it, there's an enormous potential for getting things wrong

Sun setting between the snow-laden trees just before my mobile phone battery gave up in the cold. Again, the pictures don't do the beauty justice.

I'm wondering, what proportion of Scandinavians are proficient skiers? I'm guessing a lot.

I'm guessing not many Danes on a per capita basis. I'd think that there are more Swedes and Norwegians that are good skiers.

A quintessentially Minnesota day this morning. Breakfast of eggs, coffee and biscuits. Then a trip to the Mall of America to see the ice castles. Hit the public park on the way home with the sledding gear and kids enjoyed sledding down the slopes. Hot cocoa and tea at home after.

Tomorrow expected 4-8" of new white stuff.

Any THREADster from back East that can comment re: the Nor'easter? How'd you fare?

Whoops-gotta run. Turn in the box.

Also, hope Shanilec didn't hurt himself after the Gophers men beat the snot out of UND a couple weeks ago. Gopher women freakin' rule in college hockey this year.

Hi all,

ORIGINAL: Grollub

On work this weekend. Flew up to the northern parts (close to my original home) to check out and evaluate one of the courses (Basic course in subarctic environments) that the college are giving in cooperation with one of the northern regiments for the Officers Training Cadet School.

Seems I'm in a funk, just as last time I was up here in January. Temp is, once again, -29C ... but again, blindingly beautiful.





Very nice pictures Per - thanks!


Leo "Apollo11"

Not only am I a regular nerd, but apparently I'm also a network geek. Someone on Reddit posted this picture with the explanation that it was the IP address they found "the world's most dangerous hacker" at in the show NCIS.

I got the joke.







Skynet?


OK... I see that i have to educate some of our thread brothers here...

The address depicted on the screen is not true Internet address - the address is private one and belonging to local network!


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/192.168


BTW, whilst true Internet IP address can be only one in the whole world the private IP addresses can run into billions (i.e. everyone can have 192.168. )...


That is a joke? You guys are weird.

Hey Des,

The turn's up for you.

@ Dixie: On a totally unrelated note, did you know that some of the American heavy cruisers come equipped with Type 61 "Long Lance" torpedoes in scenario 2? Seems as though you can't keep 'em off / away from 'em.

Add in the Finns and you're mostly correct.

But are the Finns 'true' Scandinavians or kind of 'honorary' Scandinavians?

My understanding is that Finns know how to ski at birth.

Schani called and informed that two places have offered him a job... he just has to decide between the two.

Good news for a good friend!!

He said to "warn" you all that he'll be back.
