After a big breakfast and taking some Ryvita and cheese for lunch, I went back to the railway station to be sure of the logistics for my departure at 7:30 on Friday morning from Oslo to Motala, Sweden.
In need of bike lights, I went to a general sporting gear shop and bought a small head and taillight for the Vatternrundan. The rule say the light cannot be flashing and these small ones say they lasted 30 hrs on steady.
Being a nice day,I walked to the fortress and spent a couple of hours in the free military museum. It was interesting and gave me more history of Norway's independence and attempted neutrality in WW2. The seemed to have been at war with Sweden or Denmark for 900 yrs.
there was a big cruise ship berth right at the fortress.
I went for a short bike ride and then packed my bike and met Kitab for a final catchup.
It's an early start and I just need to print my starting sheet for tomorrow night. Weather predictions look good (19 - 6 degrees c and partly sunny) for 300km overnight bike ride.
