I've been on the lookout for the Northern Lights for a while, and haved missed them a couple of times.
When a friend asked if I wanted to go dog sledging in Finland, I thought this was a great opportunity to possibly finish my quest for the immer eluding Aurora Borealis, and at the same time experience the quite unique mushing, ice cold weather and lots of snow.

University was closed for the Day of the Flemish Community.
The weather was good, birds were tsjirping, my legs were aching for some action.
And that's when I decided to do a large bike trip.
After some deliberation on remote-but-not-to-remote places, I decided to go for Tilburg, a city in the Netherlands, about 100km from where I live.
Tilburg is a large city of more than 200 thousand inhabitants in southern Netherlands.
Tilburg already had a castle in the late medieval times, but it wasn't until the 18th century, when Napoleon gave Tilburg city rights, that it became a city of some importance.
During the Industrial Revolution it became more of a mayor city, when wool factories were constructed, making it the wool and textile city of the Netherlands 1.
After the second World War, it would hold the position but the economy imploded due fewer government money being poured into Tilburg.
Culturally, Tilburg houses two concert halls, three theaters, three cinemas, and some jazz bars and other smaller music venues.
Besides the famous modern art 'De Pont' museum, it also has a museum about textile and many galleries and local artists.
Now that we got Tilburg covered a little, theoretically, it was time for the real thing.
After some preparations, I left on Sunday around half past twelve.
WARNING 1: this is only tested for the 2GB version. It will probably brick the 4GB version.
WARNING 2: performing an OTA update from Android 5.1 to 6 will remove the root capabilities, so you'll have to redo the whole process. For 6.x (Marshmallow) the process differs from the 5.x (Lollipop). The post is updated to show where the steps differ.
Have been looking for a way to root my Lenovo Yoga Pro Tab3 10.
Here's how I did it.

Format a 4GB SD card and insert it into the LYTP3;
I sometimes look at the intervals table of my workouts of my favourite run loghttp://runningahead.com.
It's missing a speed column though, which I sometimes prefer over a pace.
This little script adds it :)
