    This is Honningsvåg / Nordkapp

    Well, I can find lots of other villages and towns, but I haven't found a thread dedicated to Honningsvåg and the other Magerøya villages. There must be an awful lot of really good photography of this stunning area in other threads, what about trying to bring some of them together?

    Sounds like fun Ombugge! The Daisybell technology they use now sounds so simple, yet clearly very effective. If you have a helicopter!

    From PoloUK's post earlier: http://www.radionordkapp.no/nyheter/...es-se-videoen/
    This reminded me of when I was on MTBs back in 1965/66 and being called on to use our guns to start an avalanche in this same area of Mageroya.
    We fired off a few live rounds from our 20 mm. Oerlikon gun from a safe distance, watching snow cascade down the mountainside until it hit the water and making a mini-"tsunami".

    Brrrr! The kind of weather inviting you to stay in the warm at Honni Bakes with a good capuccino.

    Bringing you lot back from the peaty products of the Highlands & Islands to Nordkapp - the weather continues - to the point that the kommune has chartered on of the Gjesvær tourist boats to do a shopping run!

    Jura, that's a favorite!
    Lagavulin also makes sense.

    I'm expecting a proper Finnmark summer Yves - sun, rain, snow, hail, wind - all within the same 24 hours!

    Is that the kind of weather you expect for your next vacations in H'vag, Mark? In case don't forget your survival rations...

    Yup - been like it for ages now, particularly through reading www.radionordkapp.no every day to watch what's been happening on Magerøya. Last week the snow plough (brøtebil) driver got stuck in his lorry for over 24 hours - as did the snowblower driver who went out to rescue him! (http://www.radionordkapp.no/nyheter/...i-broytebilen/)

    They had the helicopter out with its clever pulse generators to move the avalanches (http://www.radionordkapp.no/nyheter/...es-se-videoen/), then another load fell. Various of the hurtigruter have taken exciting routes past Gjesværtappen and Nordkapp (http://www.radionordkapp.no/nyheter/...undt-nordkapp/).

    The man who went out to fix the ventilation at Nordkapp has been there six days - eating his way through all the food that the hurtigruter passengers haven't eaten because the buses can't get anywhere (http://www.radionordkapp.no/nyheter/...-snart-en-uke/) - and now, as the article says - the supermarkets are delivering by fishing boat (http://www.radionordkapp.no/nyheter/...or-bestilling/).

    The boats have got in every day though, and Widerøe is actually managing a pretty good service into Valan airport.

    This has been great fun to watch!!
