Crazy holidays and the Double Birkie
Wow, what a crazy month! We had a film showing at the famous Korkki Nordic thanks to Mick and the Ski Hut. We then went on a huge tour of the state visiting family and spreading holiday cheer and fear. Then on the return to Duluth I pulled out and skied the 90km double Birkie, the length of the race course, then back. From there we then headed up the North Shore to Gunflint trail and the Bearskin lodge for three more days of skiing with a great posse of friends. Needless to say, I am a bit burnt out at this point but so it goes. The snow is good, sounds like there is a warm up coming so we might as well squirrel away some K's!
