Missing Cold Weather, anyone?

This past weekend, Cris went to Lapland for a convention related to his business...(for those who are not familiar, it is a territory in northern Scandinavia, where Sweden and Finland come together, it is on the edge of the arctic circle!!)

Here Cris trying out a motorsled... (he went on 80kph/, something like 55mph on this...)


Cris standing above the frozen sea...


By the second day he got so used to the climate he was calmly hanging outside like this with -8 (17F) temperature!! What a lunatic!!


He really adapted himself very well to the climate there while everyone else was about to freeze to death... he surely enjoyed a great weekend!!

Hey Cris said it was a mega blast.. maybe you can take her out for a spin (well, more like a glide...) and she may change her mind Well it is too late for this season anyway, you will have the whole spring and summer to convince her!!
