Location: Minneapolis, Minnesota
Because we are headed to Scandinavia this year, we decided to postpone our departure until the very end of May in order to coincide with the later spring in northern climes. We left Minneapolis with three 50-lb. suitcases (much of it books and maps and stuff requested by our daughter) and one 58-lb. overweight cooler on wheels, packed with what we trust is a repaired inverter-charger. As far as we know no one questioned this heavy piece of electrical equipment: at any rate, we took it off the baggage carousel in Oslo, without incident and with great relief.

We then stopped at the first ATM machine and picked up our first pocketful of Norwegian Kroner. Then we headed to the only Starbucks in Norway--conveniently located at the airport--and bought two pounds of coffee, two cups of coffee, one sandwich and one muffin: $56 worth. This will not be an inexpensive trip.

The train to Lillehammer was very crowded, but the cooler provided seating for quite a while. When we arrived, we learned that our son-in-law had tried to pick Rover up from storage for us, but the battery had been dead. So we headed directly from the train station to the storage building, only to find that Rover still wouldn’t start; nor did she on Sunday, after a whole day of charging. Houston, we have a problem and it’s not the battery. It’s going to be an expensive one.

And David hasn’t even tried to reinstall the inverter-charger yet.

Addendum: Rover was out of gas!!
