A Norwegian man trying to evade his country’s mandatory quarantine system by skiing back from Sweden got busted after getting hit by bad weather and requiring rescue. The Guardian reports the man was working on a construction project in Sweden and wanted to return to Norway to get some documents. To avoid the delay of a mandatory quarantine and cross the border undetected, the man who is in his fifties set off on skis for the 25-mile journey over difficult terrain described as “cold, wet and fairly high mountains.” 15 miles in he hit a bad patch of weather and a local reindeer herder eventually came to his aid. The man was handed off to local police who put him into a 10 day quarantine in a hotel before they will pursue any repercussions for his actions. Uff da.
