Hei Zwerver!
(Og deg som skal til Norge.)
(And you who are going to Norway.)
Jeg leser i posten din at du skal til Raubergstulen, mellom Lom og Skjolden, Rv55.
(I'm reading in your post that you are going to Raubergstulen, between Lom and Skjolden, Rv55.)

Har du et nytt og bra kart? (Do you have a new and good map?)
En smal fjellvei som var stengt før, er åpnet for motorsykler og biler uten henger / tilhenger!
(A narrow mountain-road who where closed before, are now open for motorcykles and cars whitout a trailer!)
Du tar av fra Rv.55 ved Turtagrø og kjører opp til 1300 m.o.h. (meter over havet), gjennom Fardalen, til Øvre Årdal.
(You leave Rv.55 by (at?) Turtagrø and drive up to 1300 m.o.s, through Fardalen, to Øvre Årdal.)
En fin tur i fint vær, men glem det i overskyet vær. (A nice trip in nice weather, but forget it in cloudy weather.)

Og ikke glem Dalsnibba! Rv.63, ca 15 km fra Geiranger, ta med kikkert! Veien fra Rv.63 opp til Dalsnibba har mange svinger (er svingete), omtrent som de i de Italienske Alper! (And don't forget Dalsnibba! Rv.63, ca 15 km from Geiranger, bring a pair of binoculars! The road from Rv,63 up to Dalsnibba has (have?) many curves, almost like those in the Alps!)

Hvis du er i nærheten av Vinstra, Kvam, Otta og Vågåvatnet: Prøv Rv.51 ved Vågåvatnet / Vågåvannet, og sving inn på Rv.257 ved Randsverk, og ved Kruke kan du velge en smalere vei nærmere Heidal (en gammel kirke og noen veldig gamle hus). Elva Sjoa er populær å rafte i.
(If you are somwhere near Vinstra, Kvam, Otta and Vågåvatnet: Try Rv.51 by (at?) Vågåvatnet, and turn in to Rv.257 at Randsverk, at Kruke you can choose a smaller road closer to Heidal (an old church and some wery old houses). The river Sjoa is popular for rafting. (''Rafting'' is a Norwegian word! Almost... )

Vil du kjøre en muligens hullete og humpete fjellvei? Mellom gamle setre? Der de har sauer, (og som de for mange år siden) lagde smør og rømme på setra?
(Do you wanna drive a mountainroad perhaps full of holes and bumps? Between old mountain-farms? (Summer mountain pasture). Where they have sheeps, and they used to, (many years ago) made butter and créme fraîche on the little farm?) (A Norwegian seter: A summerplace for de animals like sheeps, goats and cows, and the milkmaid / dairymaid. Typical Norwegian before, now a rare thing. Tast the goat-cheese!! In the shop you find a ''light-variant'' called GUDBRANDSDALSOST, 99% of the native eats it several days a week!)
Ja!? Sving av fra E6 mellom Kvam og Vinstra, kjør mot fjellet Gråhø, sving til høyre ca halvveis, og passér Sulseter, sving til høyre igjen, og du er på E6 ved Vinstra.
Yes!? Turn from E6 between Kvam and Vinstra, drive in direction the mountain Gråhø (Grå=the color grey), turn right halfway, and pass Sulseter, turn right again, and you are on the E6 at Vinstra.

Kanskje du vil gå på en isbre? På Jostedalsbreen? Jostedal Breførarlag organiserer spaserturer på breen, for unger og voksne. Du kan ringe de på telefonnummer: 57683111.
(Perhaps you wanna go / walk on a glacier? On Jostedalsbreen? Jostedal Breførarlag organize walks on the glacier, for kids and grown-ups! You can call them, phonenumber: 57683111.)

Og hvis du er i Oslo en onsdag kveld på sommeren, må du besøke Tyrigrava! Det er 100 - 500 motorsykler der, avhengig av været! Det er en vanlig kafé, og det er vanlige motorsyklister som bor i / ved Oslo som kommer. Hvor? Finn FjordCamp og Tusenfryd på kartet, sydøst for Oslo, nær E6, ved Gjersjøen. Tyrigrava er mellom FjodCamp og Tusenfryd, på den gamle hovedveien.
(And if you are in Oslo a wednesday evening / night on the summertime, you must visit Tyrigrava! It is 100 - 500 motor-bikes there, it depends of the weather! It's a regular café, regular people who lives in the area. Where? Find FjordCamp and Tusenfryd (an amusementpark) on your map, south-east of Oslo, close to the E6, by Gjersjøen (a little lake). Tyrigrava is between FjordCamp and Tyrigrava, by the old mainroad.)

Hvis du sender meg din reiserute, så kanskje (bare kanskje!) jeg kan gi noen tips % råd!
(If you send me your travelling-route, perhaps (perhaps!) I can give you some tip & advice!

God tur! / Nice trip!
Hilsen Liv. / Greetings Liv.
 
Hi Liv!

Mange takker for travelinfo!

Because off too much work I have to rescedule my holliday; I,m
leaving for Norway on sat 14th of july..
In the first week I plan to go to Lysebotn first, where I'll meet up with my brother who's travelling with a EML-PanEuropean combination. From there up to the Sognefjord and the Geirangerfjord. I've been up Dalsnibba twice, once with snow and once in clear blue sky, beautifull!
From Geiranger I want to go inland to Raubergstulen, where I'll stay some days in the mountains...

I saw in another post that you are planning to go to Italy; do you want to go to the Stelvio rally on 7,8 and 9 july?
I hope to get a day off on friday to go, some clubmembers of MTCHolland will be there.
If you go, plan your arrival on friday; there's only a small
campingplace, which is a bit betterr to camp then the free camping in the fields around the rally site; the place is garded
24 hours a day..
Need more info about nice routes ect? Just mail!

Hilsen,
 
LIV,

I JUST READ YOUR INFORMATION ABOUT THE MOUNTAIN ROAD IN THE LOM AREA, I AM LEAVING FOR NORWAY ON SUNDAY AND WILL BE RIDING ALONG THE RV55 ON MY WAY UP TO THE NORDKAPP.

HOW GOOD OR BAD IS THAT MOUNTAIN ROAD, AM I GOING TO FALL OFF?? I AM NOT EXPERIENCED IN OFF ROAD RIDING BUT IT SOUNDS GOOD.

AND CAN YOU CLARIFY, CAN YOU DRIVE FROM OVRE ARDAL, OVER THE MOUNTAIN TO THE RV55. AND CAN YOU GET LOST????

ONE MORE QUESTION (YOU MIGHT KNOW THIS TOO ZWERVER), I HAVE READ THAT ON THE FERRY FROM BODO TO MOSKENE, LOFOTEN YOU HAVE TO TAKE YOUR OWN STRAP TO TIE DOWN YOUR BIKE, HAVE YOU HAD ANY PROBLEMS WITH IT. ALSO I READ THAT THE HURTIGRUTEN IS THE BEST OPTION IN ROUGHER SEAS, IS THIS RIGHT. DO YOU THINK I WILL HAVE TO BOOK MORE THAN A DAY IN ADVANCE???? PERHAPS THAT WAS MORE THAN ONE QUESTION.

LEAVING ON SUNDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bodo-Moskenes ferry

Big Gordy,

I took that ferry twice and no problems! You can "tie down" your bikes, but you should take your own straps, there not much availeble on this ferry!
Last year there where only 3 bikes per ferry allowed, and they were placed at the side of the ferry with not much poss. to tie them down, so I had to park the gs on the sidestand with the pannier against the wall (using my gloves as protection).
But like the first time we had a real calm sea so no problems !

Hope you have a great time up north!
 
cheers zwerver

I'LL TAKE AN EXTRA PAIR OF GLOVES THEN, AND HOPE FOR CALM SEAS. I CANT WAIT TO GET THERE, I'VE SEEN TOO MANY OF YOUR PHOTOS.........I WANT TO SEE IT FOR MYSELF!!!

ENJOY YOUR TRIP TOO.

Hello Big Gordy!
Don't worry!
Rv.55 has asphalt enamel, and you won't fell off!
Øvre Årdal - Rv.55: Yes! Great road, mountains! (Øvre Årdal - Turtagrø.)
:cool:
I'll send you more soon,before saturday. Promise!
:angel
Geetings, Liv.
(? What is a gordy? It's not in my dictionary...)
 
Big Gordy,going to Norway.

:) Hello!
Welcome to Norway! (Velkommen til Norge!)
First: Don.t worry. (Først: Ikke bekymre deg.)
Rv.55: Lom, Raubergstulen, Turtagrø, Skjolden, Luster, Gaupne: Asphalt enamel. (Asfaltdekke.)
Two buses can meet everywhere. ( To busser kan møtes overalt.)
If you fell of your bike, it is because you are turning your head, looking at the nature! ( Hvis du detter av sykkelen din er det fordi du snur hodet ditt rundt, mens du ser på naturen!)
:beerjug:
The road from Øvre Årdal over the mountain to Turtagrø at Rv.55: (Veien fra Øvre Årdal over fjellet til Turtagrø på Rv.55:)
This is an smaller, narrow road. (Dette er en mindre, smalere vei.)
When I was there 3 years ago it was an asphalt enamel, perhaps with some holes now. (Da jeg var der for 3 år siden var det asfaltdekke, kanskje med noen hull nå.)
The first few kilometres from Øvre Årdal there are some hairpin curves uphill with guard rail, not easy for two cars to meet. (De første få kilometerne fra Øvre Årdal er det noen hårnålsvinger oppover med autovern, ikke lett for to biler å møtes her.) (Car with a trailer is not allow.)
After these few kilometres the road is much moore easy and relaxing to drive, I promise! (Etter disse få kilometerne er veien mye lettere og avslappende å kjøre, det lover jeg deg!)
And in good weather you can look at the highest mountain in Norway! (Og i pent vær kan du se de høyeste fjellene i Norge!)
Get lost on this road? No, I can't rmember any cross-roads. (Kjøre deg bort på denne veien? Nei, jeg kan ikke huske noen veikryss.)
And you will not be alone in the wilderness, with hungry elks who want to eat you!
(Og du kommer ikke til å være alene i villmarka, med sultne elger som vil spise deg!)

Blimey, it looks like almost everybody on this board is going to Norway this summer!

I'm off there on 26th July from Newcastle to Bergen. I'm staying in Alesund but hope to do a bit of touring round too.

Anybody else in the area at that time?

Richard.

THANKS FOR THE REPLY.

IN ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTION, A "GORDY" IS ME, IT IS SHORT FOR MY NAME GORDON. I WILL PRINT THE DICTIONARY, ALTHOUGH I AM CONCERNED BECAUSE YOU HAVE PUT SHOTGUN ON THE LIST. I HOPE NOT TO HAVE TO USE THAT ONE.




RICHARD.......BY THE 26TH I'LL BE IN SOUTHERN FINLAND INTO WEEK 4 OF MY TRIP. ENJOY YOURSELF.


CHEERS BIG GORDY

Hello Big Gordy!
First I correct my self:
Hailstorm = Haglevær
Shotgun = Haglegevær.

Don't worry! You can use the shotgun to clear your road:
If there is something / someone ahead, for example a camper/carawan, an indian, some Swedish people, a crocodile, sheep, or a rattlesnake! But don't shoot the wolfes and the native!! (Do I lie? No, i never lie (I think...))

Beware of:
Policemen measuring your speed.
Gravel/sand on the asphalt enamel.
The elk, specially at sunrise and sunset.
And I'm not kidding now.

Enjoy Norway! God tur!
:beerjug: Liv.
