In Lapland, Finland

Post by Hullujussi » Tue Jul 18, 2017 4:26 pm

Hi all,

Here we are, in Salla (in the Middle of Nowhere), Lapland, Finland. Sun is up all night and there are lot of mosquitos :lol: But we will survive :D
So far 2900 km, no problems. Just got SMS from local Seat dealer "Thanks for purchasing new car from us blahblahblah please order our service contact details ..." Is this an omen that "You will need this number ..." I think this was hilarious ... or scary :shock: If my customer (yes, I'm in sales) purchases something I'd rather not to do my first contact with him/her about where to contact in case of problem :lol:
But, anyway, Greetings from Lapland (Finnish one). Charging my batteries ...
Ps: Yes it's a traditional outhouse in the background :) (in this location there is no electricity or running water (well, in the river of course))

Looking good Hullujussi, have you hosed it down yet, I,ve got this one in Nevada White but fitted with 19 inch rims and have only had 2 days of decent snow (February), are you enjoying the Beast, I came from Tiguan to Ateca, I was scared at first thinking what have I done because the VW was excellent, now you would need to cut my arms of to get the Ateca back, good luck and good driving.

Do you have a cottage in there, and do you go there on winter time also? We may see some real winter tests for Ateca then? For those who do not know, Salla is one of the coldest places in Finland. They've had below -50 °C in there sometimes. :shock:

I haven't yet. It's amazing to drive, it is so agile, steering and brakes, exellent :D DSG works like it should be. No complaints. But, as said by Tet70, it's gonna get pretty "chilly" here in Lapland (well, I live 350 km more south but will be visiting this place) in the wintertime 8-) Keep U posted :D

Actually I have both home and cottage here (home meaning the place I was spending my childhood). Wintertests, for sure :D Yes, Salla is one of the coldest, or should I use word "coolest", places in FInland :D
I've experienced -47 °C once here (not in the recent years so I'm afraid global warming has done something ....)

I was just checking the weather in northern Finland. Last night it was -28 C in Salla, and 51 cm (1' 8") of snow this morning. Hullujussi, are we getting some wintery photos soon? ;) How is your 4Drive coping with the half metre of snow? :lol:
