Journal Entry:
Spent most of the day chaufered aroound by Tove looking for a travel agent. Finally found the student agent (Kilroy) and spent over an hour in line. Finaly got my ticket to Paris for Jan. 5th.

Did some shopping for the cold weather (long underware, sock and glove liners, and a hat). It's says something (not sure what) that my airplane ticket and the underware cost about the same. Rushed home to pack.

Ceicle and Christian picked me up about 4:30. we spent an hour or two getting the supplies divided up between cars and then it was off to Geilo. Got there around 10:15 and had the gear ferried up by snow mobile. I caught a lift in the trailer of the snow mobile on the second run.

Talking with one of the people at the cabin, Anika it tuned out that we had a common friend (a guy I rowed with in university). Small world.

Interesting observation on Norwegians: there are 15 of us at the cabin, I think there are 13 mobile phones.
