Man murders camera in Lapland




























These are some of the boys and girls who took us on our Husky Safari.

Finland – and Lapland in particular – was a fabulous experience. Never seen so much snow. Never been so cold. 

Falling off the dog sled and crushing my Canon 500D Camera with my ribs was also an amazing experience. The Doctor in Ivalo says that I have at least 3 broken ribs and maybe 4. 

He gave me permission to fly at the last moment so we got home as planned. The camera is totally pulverized and is probably beyond a rebuild. I will post some photos on Picasa in a day or two. Life is a bit of a struggle at the moment.

I'm so sorry to read this. I don't think anything hurts worse than broken ribs. Take care of yourself!

Holy shit! I was wondering what happened to you.

Uh...Happy New Year?

(In all seriousness: I hope you feel better soon).

Sounds like a great trip, except for that tech/body breaking moment.

You're a victim of hoon huskies?

When you said you were off to Lapland for Christmas Jim and I thought you were kidding. I've been safer in my three Sydney-Hobarts and Jim in his 14. Mind you, one can suffer damage on arrival!

Happy New Year to you and Cate and the cats from the White Street crowd :-)

Thank you all so much. You are much too kind to a complete Dickhead!

GT's camera, circa '92 is of much smaller caliber and thus less likely to inflict death or worse on impact. Get well soon
