Today is the day we leave Kirkenes, so for the finale went HUSKY SLEDDING!!!!! There were five sleds in total, two of which were the guys guiding us though the track. As we rounded the first corner, mum and Olive's sled hit a bump, and mum was thrown off with the sled dragging sideways. Olive's head was scraping along the ground, then the sled hit another bank of snow, and flipped back upright. Olive was crying because mum couldn't get back on sled so the girl helping get the sleds going, jumped onto mums sled and hit the brakes. It took several minutes of confusion for that to happen. In the meantime, dad and I had no idea what was going on because we had already taken off along the track. The first we knew about it was Olive speeding around the corner with no driver. The cause of the rampage was that the office dog got out and bolted the wrong way and Mum and Olive's dogs chased after it. The huskies only have one gear.... GO! The only real control you have is the brakes which don't work very well. That makes it really exciting when every thing is working, and a bit of a disaster when it's not. Olive and Mum were very very brave and got back on to the sled, and congratulated each other after every new bump. I loved it, and I enjoyed seeing bumps up ahead and asked dad to go faster.
