This is the part of Roadmovie what I have left when Microsoft MoviMaker wipe out after +200 hour work. Bear in mind that it’s uncompleted project what I can’t finalize it is what you see and that’s it. Thank you very much Microsoft I appreciated. Look’s like Microsoft wipes out as offen as US skijumpers…..

I’m working with other software now. Full version Roadmovie will be coming out when it’s ready. I try to do something to rest of the project and if I’m lucky maybe can publish them.

Big screen high res. HD full film available soon…

Video editing

Happy mouse in Vuokkiniemi

I have done video editing on MovieMaker since we finish the KOLA TOUR. I have already 60 minutes ready when I made a test launch and quest what? Of course software wouldn’t convert the project….. Grhhhh.. Only possibility to get profit from that project was split it in minor elements and used them as a web launch of the film.

I bought an other software and now I’m trying to learn how it works. It’ll take time when the whole roadmovie will be ready. Only positive thing of that is I’m creating new ideas and point of view how to do it and what should be the story.

WEB videos will be published soon one after other when I get them ready.

Morning in Törmälä

Hunting day! I feel good and we all started to the Wild Brown Bear Station. Ali, Aki and Jonkko at the direct way on asphalt and we took sand roads with some slides, J Suddenly Ari stopped in the front of me and tried to tell me something. Jaska stopped, looked and jumped in the wood… Sakke hit a big bird and they have to kill it, because it was injured. Jaska catches it and Ari prepared it for dinner, great!

Some hunting, no that was an accident

Later we stopped near a lake and had our last fireplace with coffee and “ugly” sausages, bit sad… We went on and met Jonkko at the WBBS. Aki and Ali were gone because Ali had to work at the next day, what a pity. Ari started with the fire for the bird and we eat that good tasty one with pleasure. Mika and Ari had to leave us too. So Jonkko, Jaska, Sakke, Anja + I went to dinner at the WBB lounge and had a new surprise after dinner: My lovely wife organised a birthday cake, great! We went to sauna and Jonkko and I watched some photos at the sofa…

Circle is closed back in Wild Brown Bear

Sunday, 11.9.2011

Breakfast at WBB and started back to Lahnalahti. We stopped for coffee and gifts at some fuel station. At Sakke`s place we met Jonkko and Jaska. We took off our things from the cars and then they had to go, because of working at the next day, very sad… We made a nice evening with a lot of sauna and speaking about everything…

Tour is over time to go home....

Aki came in the morning and we went to get more gifts for our family in Varkaus. We packed our car and had a good dinner maid by outdoor-kitchen-queen Sakke. Sauna was heated up again to relax our body from that tour. We took some photos and videos in the internet and made party…

Thursday, 13.9.2011

We left Sakke and had breakfast at Aki`s place. Later at the police alcohol control I was glad that Anja was driving… The ferry started at 17:30h and then some stormy weather with waves. Anja was a bit scared and ask to call Sakke to get us out of that…;) We tried to sleep.

Wednesday, 14.9.2011

During the day we had enough time to look the videos and take all photos in one folder. The ferry was 1 ½ hours too late and we were at home at 5:15h in the morning the next day…

Now I want to say thank you!

  • To my wife that she let me go while she is pregnant and had to look for our oldest son.
  • To all of my friends who helped us to prepare everything for that trip.
  • To Anja for the great time while riding, respect!
  • To Lea that she made that nice blog here and organised many things in the background.
  • To Sakke for the organisation and that he invited us to make such a great tour with Dusty Wobbls.
  • To Aki and Ali for all that driving, repairing, preparing and  ….
  • And of course to Jaska, Jonkko, Ari and Mika for a unforgettable adventure with nice guys and new friends…

We see us in the next adventure, greetings

Kay…

The camp in morning day 6

The hard day, and the sun is shining again. We packed the camp and left in the direction to Umba. At the fuel station we had to wait some time for new fuel. Then we went from Umba to Kirovsk at a very hard enduro track of 164km: tracks with big stones, much water crossings, more than enough mud, old bridges and a lot of fun for us of course.

Stony trail

We made a coffee stop somewhere at a really nice place in the woods and Ari took a bath. KTM and BMW were diving during water crossing, at Anja`s bike we had to take some water out of the exhaust J, sometimes I get stuck in the mud and I learned a lot of how to get out the bike of that kind of situation! We made a good teamwork and Ari had a lot of to do with pulling, pushing and riding the bikes through… Respect, Mika always wanted to drive at the last position to film the others and that was not easy with the BMW, which have 40kg more than most of the KTM.

The time was going on very fast. It would be colder later, so we changed our clothes against some wormer and dry ones. 5th and last time wet feet and I think all of us had the same feeling! 😉 Time goes by, then road went bigger and sunset began with wonderful mountains in the front. After a tank stop and 20km we met Aki, Ali + Jonkko at the new camp place. 254km and 11hours later there was the tent build up and food was ready, thank you service team!!!

Last bridge team work that’s the word….

The camp place was nice, but the silly Russian throws everywhere their waste, unbelievable! At midnight Anja came with a birthday cake for me and some gifts from my family.

Happy birthday KAY…

We all were singing and the finish guys tasted “sparkling-vodka”. (some of them hate me for that now J) , good to know, that we tomorrow drive on asphalt! Thanks a lot for that great day…

Something to wash down the Birthday cake

Last camp in Russia

My birthday and I`m feeling much older today then yesterday… After breakfast we all packed the camp in the service car and continue on boring asphalt roads to the boarder. (luck with my condition) Near the border we wait for the car and when they came they told us about a flat tyre at the car and lot of work to change it. We needed nearly 2 boring hours at the Russian border with some stupid paperwork. At the Finnish boarder they looked in my passport and said: Happy birthday and welcome to Finland, thanks… We stopped at the Polar Circle to make some memorable photo with the riders.

Finland here we come, last Russian passport control before border

At the short gravel part to some nice holiday houses Jonkko tried to catch a reindeer. Ali organised a beautiful area with nice woodhouse, real beds and sauna! After sauna and dinner Sakke, Jaska and Mika came with great birthday presents: sauna thermometer, sauna infusion medium, a bottle of special finish snaps and bread. Thank you very much!!! I went early (10:00h) to bed and saw a really nice full moon in the night. 351km riding that day.

Sauna and cottage what Ali arrange

To be continue……
