The stadium was a lot different from what I thought it was going to be based on watching the world cups from the TV on Eurosport. It was fun to train there on the different trail system; the course was hard but had a lot of fun down hills.
In the town of Rupholding
there was a also an indoor shooting range were we got to do a couple shooting
tests at. It was very interesting and very Bavarian, with lots of painted
plaques of men with beer and rifles…lots of fun.

The town was also very nice, small probably around the small size as Fort Kent but it had a large speed skating rink that lots of people were attending for some weekend races. There was also a sled dog race that was going on the weekend that we were. Whenever we went outside to go run or get in the van to ski we could just here all of the sled dogs going crazy!! They really knew how to bark up a storm!
We are on to Belarus now, having a few problems getting here with lost people, bags and a few communication issues we managed to get into the counry…and are just waiting on a few more people (Maddies crew of Sean and Jean who managed to miss their plane????) and a couple of missing ski and a couple parents and Algis (who's coming late). We are well on our way to having an awesome trip!
