    Read Jono's book. It's all explained there. You get a much better understanding of the current adventure if you can read it.

    This may be of interest to those who like learning the meteorology of the region in more detail.

    Good progress so far. Heading toward Europe's most northerly point. It looks like it will get a bit more rugged soon. Incredibly difficult what he's about to do.

    Looks like a slog in the light wind, but with benefits:

    The forecast from now until the weekend seems to be 'Blizzard'. Jono's last blog post does mention being inside though, so it sounds as if he's found shelter. I hope so.
    Eeeh 'tis grim dahn Sarf.

    I had a nose about on google maps - surprising how many communities there are up there. Most built around reasonable infrastructure. I assume places like that would sort him out without too much bother. Where it will get tricky is when he rounds the northerly point and the coast line gets very irregular and seemingly less inhabited. There seems to be big stretches where there is very little in the way of human life. Finding safe landing spots and staying out overnight would be a big risk.

    Yep. I've also been enjoying Google exploration of the coast of north eastern Norway and come to much the same conclusions.

    Perhaps he could keep warm by snuggling up with the local wildlife?

    Forecast weather conditions look a bit better today, so perhaps he'll be on the move again.
