Nordkapp – Day 6 – Trondheim -> Mo i Rana, 480 km

W drodze na północ

On the way up North

Riding and once again riding north marked this day. I did not stop along the way, beyond the fjords and the tunnels. I spent a prolonged stopover on shopping. I stocked up the local bakery, dairy, fruits and some vegetable produce and the local value price store. In the evening I got to the camp near the town of Storli in the area near to Storforshei.

“Light” a mess of things in the review …

Since it was raining, and I was really tired, I booked into hotel accommodation instead of my tent in a small camp house at a cost of 350 NOK. Although the camp was aged, it’s clean and very pleasant. Renting a house allowed me to embrace things. I noticed that one trunk was leaking, I think from the top? I had food in it, generally the entire kitchen. Fortunately, everything was packed in bags, so there were no losses. I checked the other two trunks and both were dry. I’ll have to check and fix its vulnerability, but after returning.

Advice: In Norway, there is a lot of camping, so there is no problem finding accommodation. Before planning a journey to places where I planned to stay, I always checked out several options by reading the reviews and ratings. I was never disappointed, though halfway through I stopped at random places. When I was simply tired, I turned at the first place I encountered.

Equipment: Camera, GoPro and stuff like that. It’s definitely worth investing in a good webcam that can be attached to a helmet. Sometimes, there is no time or ability to stop, and the views are great. Do not forget to order a remote webcam and mount it somewhere on the steering wheel, as close to the left hand as possible. A few batteries would be useful as well as an efficient charger. It should also take a good camera. Still, no smartphone is substitute for a good lens.
