We left the camp early and went straight for the gravel. Actually managed to go 125 km without seeing tarmac at all. Downside to that (a very small one) is that lots of the fjellvege (mountain roads) are privately owned and charges from 0-20 kroner for mc's to pass. You quickly run out of coins. On the plus side - it's off season here and no ones home in the cabins on the "setra" (highland farm area).

Along the way we came to a "Tollbooth Command Center" where this one woman (troll) managed no less than tree toll roads! She took our 15 kroner/bike and did tell us the the road we planned to go to Elverum was in bad shape and very soft. Instead she guided us over the highlands of "Birkbeineren" and gave us an extra 25 k's of gravel = win :)

We entered Sweden again, and now camp out in the woods on the border between Norway/Sweden. This must be the quietest place on the trip so far! We are 5 k's in from the nearest public road. There hasn't been a vehicle here since the snow past - for sure. No wind, no rivers... And definitely no traffic notice. Even the vampires left :D

We are 50 k short of Malung where we pick up the trail again. Doing a fair bit of gravel tomorrow and heading for Lidköbing where we are gonna visit Touratech ( supplier of stuff for offroaders).
Then hitting the gravel again - direction Copenhagen!

... oh yeah - household reindeer trying to jump out and kills us are now switched out wif house sheep and brain dead lambs :)
