Good job, Paul.


The JoLawesomeness is just too powerful. We must surrender to it and let it sweep us away like a Norrland avalanche.

The spare part had to be shipped from somewhere in Germany, that was the main reason it took so long. The fact that the car was nearly 20 years, and of a brand that was never popular in Finland, is probably why nobody in Finland had a fitting spare part.

Oh, and about a month after the car was fixed, it turned out the problem was not the clutch but the self-starter. But that happened back in civilisation.

Oh, memories. Finland is one of those things that seems a lot smaller when you're an adult.

Every year we would go to visit my grandparents in the Texas panhandle (the Norrland of Texas only hellishly hot), and every year the rear tires on the car would overheat (because my parents overloaded the car with enough crap to last through a Norrland winter) and we'd have a blowout. The annual limp to Idalou and hope they had the right kind of tire was always fun.

Never had to wait 11 days though. I think the longest wait was four hours for a new tire to come in from the big city (i.e. Lubbock) to the gas station in Idalou.

These days, of course, the gas station is probably self-serve. But the tires are radials, so they might not explode as readily.

In Norrland they are, yes.



This car was out in the Norrland winter for three minutes and look what happened. This is why there are no cars and no auto parts in Norrland's auto parts facilities.

Only reindeer and bad-tempered tennis players can survive in the arctic conditions.

Re: Johanna-Jenny Larsson

Also, this kind of "building surface" is pretty common in the Arctic. Because… I guess it's useful. Not being a construction engineer I don't really know what I'm talking about.



But why the heck they use it in the tropical end of Sweden… dunno!?
