Hi,

I'm not on your trip but was fortunate to do CFD one year previous to your departure date and I'm pleased to say you'll have the time of your life, its epic.  The dogs are wonderful, the scenary pristine and not seeing anyone for five days is bliss!!  We didn't get to see the Northern Lights but nobody cared as the real fun is with the dogs and on the sled.

Two pieces of kit I would take that are not mentioned on the list, some wet wipes for washing (very basic conditions) and your own high quality balaclava as the one provided is not very good.  We had temps in the -35 to -40 region out on the lakes (it was -32 at Mounio on our last day) and as you're going at about the same time of year it could well be similar, maybe even two balaclavas!

Have fun!

Hi Phil,

I'm also going on this trip - really looking forward to it. Have never done anything like this before. 

Thanks for the tips Lee! Will definitely invest in a couple of balaclavas!

You're more than welcome for any advice I can give, soooo envious of you lot!

One other thing I thought of that caught out one of our group, the cabins have no electricty and she wasn't able to charge her camera batteries :(

Hi

Really looking forward to joining this trip on Sunday! Never been anywhere so cold, so worrying I am not packing the right stuff!
