D-Day minus 23 15 December 2015: Training Wheels
First practise run with sleds on wheels
The first few days of our journey up to where the snow starts, provides a challenge for people attempting to travel the full length of Norway. Some cheat and use a car,others use a bicycle, and some just walk carrying a mega heavy rucksack. Some really athletic Norwegians even roller ski along the roads.
Our technique is different… We have attached wheels to our sleds. It means we will have travelled the full distance on foot, and solves the problem of weight placing additional strain on our backs on the unforgiving roads.
So today we checked the sleds worked… But thank goodness nobody saw us!
