The post is split in two. English and Norwegian.
Day one features a set of calibrations. The route, driving, stops for food must be organised so it fits all of us and the scooters. We arrived at our destination in Lena municipality where the engineer lives. However, the first day was not without challenges.
The programmer knew that the back shock absorber was weak. Over every hole, the scooter starts bouncing like a boat. The more holes. The worse the bouncing become. So, we stopped in Drammen to buy a new one. However, later that day. The programmer hit a hole downhill with slightly higher speed than usual. Which made the scooter hit and break the fuel filter. Resulting in fuel spilling out over the tire. Fuel got thrown out in the air over the engineer on the scooter just behind. They stopped at ones, cooled the exhaust to prevent fire and tightened the fuel hose. Then changed the fuel filter. We were set to go again.
When we arrived at Lena. We went straight to Gjøvik hospital. The stonemasons foot had grown big and he walk like Gollum. We didn’t take any chances about blood poisoning so better safe than sorry. While waiting for the doctors, the architect and programmer started making a conspiracy about amputating the foot. Sending pictures of the hospital and the foot to friends. I can assure that everything is fine. Though he still walks like Gollum.
For notice: This is not the same foot he damaged during pole dancing last week. It’s the other one. He lost a heavy rudder on it.
First day was interesting. The engineer and programmer worked on their scooters in the garage for the evening while the stonemason and architect hunkered down. The journey have just begun.
