Back to civilization - various subjects

After two days of job related activities at Ilsetra (I have experienced much worse!)

No electricity nor other modern facilities, just a lot of time - and a lot of snow. This is a brief presentation of a typical Norwegian winter activity, in my opinion an excellent form of recreation.

When back I discover a frustrated builders community but I don't think this will have any further impact on the great sharing of experience and ideas on the web except everyone will be a bit more cautious about posting intellectual properties - which was, the way I interpret it, the intention of the designer - at least I will. Keep it up guys! I will by the way be happy to answer any questions regarding skiing.

I'm consistently covered in dust these days.
