This has been talked about a little on the Sub Zero Crew thread but I think it's time to start checking out the interest.
We're organising a meet up in the Swedish town of Jokkmokk just North of the Arctic Circle. it will coincide with the famous Winter market where the Saami congregate to sell their reindeer, arrange marriages and sell their crafts and wares to the public.
There are usually lots of other activities and events around the town on the run up and during the market too.
Outside the town the conditions are typically Arctic with all the usual pursuits available that normally implies.
Damian is currently looking into some travel, shipping and camping options.
Date wise the Saami Market formally runs from 7th to the 9th of Feburary 2013 but events start to happen a few days before that in the town.
I'm aiming to be out there from the weekend of January 26th to 10th February, travelling inclusive.
If we can get the basic infrastructure of the trip in place there is probably no reason why dates can't be somewhat flexible around that.
Some Arctic experience is going to be necessary as the temperatures can easily be as low as -40°c with wind and heavy snow. Everyone will be expected to take responsibility for their own safety and well being. This in not a course or a package holiday.
We've got no definite idea of costs or details yet but the question at this stage is who is interested...
