We lost a lot of time the first kilometers because of struggle with thin ice but finally it
got better.

A smaller incident but Måns had luck, he got away with a wet shoe.

At Kvicksund.
We skated towards Kvicksund on the north shore. To our surprise and disappointment
there was no ice on our planned way back on the south shore...

...so we had to order - and wait for - a taxi. We lost 45 minutes of skating by this.
(The 7 km taxi ride is not included in the 130 km of the tour.)
