Final Countdown

Only four days left. Few things yet to be done, though all the big musts are already handled.

Sponsoring took a very nice uplift, when the co-work with Ovi went so smoothly. All the sponsored items for my trip can be soon checked out at the Gear page. Also my first post on Ovi blog was issued yesterday. Another great news was getting second official sponsor by Opettaja-lehti (teacher’s magazine), when it decided to help me we the travel insurance. Thirdly, not being my sponsor but a co-operator, Turku2011 -project thought it would be a good idea, me being their biking messenger – both sides getting maybe some publicity out of it.

On Sunday I will find out my total budget I’ve raised, when I’ll sell all invain belongings at the biggest flea market in Finland.

Biking condition was reassured few weeks ago, when I did a small island hopping bike tour in Åland . 87km/day being the longest distance I biked, it’s still enough for my aimed 25 000km in 14 months.

    Vai että kymäri on taivaltanut teksasiin asti… hienoa. Jos tosiaan itsekin sinne päädyn, niin varmasti otan yhteyttä!

      Kiitos linkista. Eilen oli sellainen myrsky, etta hyva ettei oma teltta hajonnut osiin. mutta pysyi pystyssa. Luulen ettei tuo riippumatto ole tehty liian kovia saita ajatellen. Mutta funtsin asiaa viela.
