So nice winter weather today that we decide- I and my mastermechanic ”Nalleolut”- make some Icetrip on Saimaa Lake. The car has allready NOS Hakkapeliitta wintertyres with studs and right, Saab 96 original dimension 155-15. I installed one new set in allready early novenber just if its coming nice weather  for ”sunday” driving.

The Iceroad is located in Town Lappeenranta and its so near as just 10km from City center. Its typically privat made road in Eastern Finland Lake disctrict; local citizens who migth live in islands want to make shortcuts. In this case, because of ferry, time saving from island to the city centrer is 15 minutes. When driving this type of roads, you must understand that car insurance is not valid ! So you drive on your own risk. By the way; my dad has similar yearmodel and coloured V4 between 1971-75, and my mom tell us that one time late spring hole family was driving round Saimaa Lake. Suddenly, just a moment coming back to the beach, our Saab´s baktyres get thru the Ice… It was near that hole family drown down ! So be careful, take common sense with you and dont take any risk´s as my dad did .
