Norway in 1938, Part three

006 Norway 1938jpg_006007 Norway 1938jpg_007Obviously the Chadwick Expedition had landed with immediate plans to enter the hinterland!  One should remember every single road outside of Bergen was loose gravel, and if that is difficult to believe in this day and age, well go back to my arrival with cycle in 1961 and the tarmac ended just 20 kms or so outside of Bergen and was never seen again until the 14 day tour was almost over.  I was given to understand that in Charlie’s day the winter used to play havoc with the tarmac, but perhaps that was just an excuse to either save money or deter the unwise traveller !
