I found lovely camping a few kilometers outside Lom. It appears to be a wee additional income for people in the country. This was a little farm that had 4 huts for rental also camping and Motor homes with a toilet and shower block. In Oslo I paid €35 per night to pitch my tent. Here in Lom €10.
It was good to get the tent up and it wasn’t raining. I cooked my dinner and slept well.
Next morning was dry. Should I put the lining back in my biker trousers? I mulled it over and decided to put them in. A good decision. I ate my muesli packed the tent and started the trip north.
The sun came out and after 50km I was on the E6 heading north. The road heads over a range of mountains Dovretell. I was delighted to have the lining in the gear. It was cold.
Down into Oppdal where Svi and I got into conversation. She advised me to go out to the Lofoten islands. She asked was I going to Bobø today? This of course put a thought in my head. The weather was super and the going was good. Should I try to make it all in one day ?
There is a trick the petrol stations have here if you buy one of their mugs you get free coffee for a year. They have you bought into their franchise of course. It costs €30. A cup of coffee at a service station is €7. So after 4 coffee you are in profit.
I got one for Circle K and there were no service stations were I was driving. The E6 has loads so I’m in the free coffee zone now.
Past Trondheim and still going well. I try to follow the locals because the know how to do the maximum speed and get away with it. The E6 is the main road north.
By 6:00 I was tired and got into a camp site in Brekkvasselv. Tent up foot made shower. 4 Harley Davidson pull in and after they had settled in I invited myself and my bottle of Powers over for a chat. We had a great evening burgers and bratwursts were shared with me. The midgies were out and we went indoors.
Had a great time. Heading for bed st 12:15 it was bright.
