Posted by VoncooperLLC on September 25, 2012 at 1:30 PM

Our trip to the World Cup finals in Norway started with an interesting day of travel highlighted by someone forgetting their passport, some gnarly turbulence and playing musical cars at the rental lot.  We then had a couple down days to build bikes, adjust to the time change and the culture.  Including stocking the condo's fridge with some expensive food (and later beer) and using the built in sauna.

Gavin at Port Angeles

Posted by VoncooperLLC on May 4, 2012 at 11:50 AM
