The year 2012

January was mostly spent recuperating from a flu and sinusitis, though I did have a nice weekend trip to Utö.

February saw the filming of fatbiking for Erätulilla, a documentary TV series broadcasted on Finnish national television. It was the coldest weekend of the winter and I managed to get frostbites on my toes, which limited me a little for the rest of the winter.

March started with a nice winter weather, but saw unneccessary warm temperatures at the end of the month.

April was somewhat suboptimal weatherwise. The spring that started unnecessarily early in March took a break and resumed only in the latter half of April.

May is my favorite month. It so full of anticipation of the summer to come, the nature explodes in green and the bugs do not yet cause any trouble.

In June I went on a nice bikepacking trip in Pirkanmaa with Hendrik and Toni. I also replaced two bikes with a single one.

In July I spent time on vacation with the family, in addition to some local rides and a bikepacking trip where Finland, Sweden and Norway meet.

August was a silent month, except at work. The first half of August probably saw the best weather of the summer, but after that the fall rains started.

In September I had to give up my plan to go to Lapland for week of bikepacking. The situation at work was hectic, and would remain so until Christmas, and there were also all sorts of important meeting at the kids' school. I visited Utö again, though, which was nice.

October had some nice surprises. I spent a weekend on an island in Kvarken and also participated in a very cold and hard Mammoth March.

In November I actually had time for two short overnighters, I bought a kayak and the winter arrived in the last days of the month. Not bad, considering how depressing November usually is.

December was very busy at work, but during the weekends I had time to (childishly) enjoy the winter. At the end of the month I had a nice bikepacking overnighter with Toni under the full moon, a perfectly acceptable way to end the year.
