So, we just got back from vacation yesterday after 9 hours of driving. We saw some pretty scary drivers on the highway, that passed where there wasn’t passing zones, sped thru farms. SCARY drivers, the best was the 3 beemer drivers that passed us when we where north of the Artic Circle that passed us on the way to the ferry dock, they just ended up having a longer wait than we did. Lame.
The town we where in northern Norway had tourists, they where all over dressed & looked like idiots walking around the town in their hiking boots & pants. We only got half a day of rain & it wasn’t really raining, just spitting. We hiked Fagernes fjellet & climbed nearly 1000 meters in 3 hours. Very cool. The pictures from my previous post is taken from the top over looking the mountains & the town.
It was a good vacation, but boy am I happy to be home again. The last day of driving was the scariest & the weirdest. Some dude in a mobil home who was having engine issues signaled to pull over on the highway then proceeded to Freak when we passed him at 10 miles an hour. Again Lame. I think what the left the biggest impression on me was the way the people drove in the bobils as they say here, there mobil homes. There was one guy at a rest up above the Artic Circle who kept circling the rest area because there was Plenty of parking but he appeared to not know how.
The bobils & the trucks that drifted over into our lane where scariest on the trip. I was relieved yesterday when we pulled off our exit & into our driveway done with our trip. I am also happy we didn’t attempt to go to Lofoten this year, next time we’re up there maybe when it’s not July or fellesferie we’ll go. Till next time, stay in your lane, no drifting.
