just time to do a quick blog while my chips cool to a temperature that wouldnt melt lead. long ride today, more amazing scenary until near Sweden, when roads became a bit more regular allowing me to make better time. had to push on to be near Stockholm to get ferry tomorrow. now in kalstad about 200 miles from Stockholm. man I am tired. still, only about 3000 miles to go. just heard our New washing machine is being delivered on Sunday. is that ever in for a shock when I get home!
