Anyway as soon as we docked I was off the ferry drove north towards where I was hoping to be able to set up my base, only 29 km from the ferry. After less than 3 km there was a brilliant lookout point that had recently been completely cleared of snow. So thats it he thinks and camped up for the night. I had taken a look at the skies which were not particularly threatening and a few snowflakes were floating around.
Similar adage to that applied to camping in the bed of a Wadi. Never rains in the places you find them, except the night you camp in them. Same last night.
I woke up at about 4:30 thinking it was eerily silent and slept on a bit. Finally it was just a wee bit too eerie so I took a peak out. Only had a really heavy snowfall and bloody noggins here was snowed in.
As it was still snowing, jumped up cleared the snow off the van and putting a great deal of faith into my studs, drove out. They did a sterling job I must say, poor old engine groaned a bit but all worked out fine. Another time I was thankful I opted for four wheel drive and the biggest engine VW put into the T5.
Reminder lesson learned and alls well that.....
Got to the village Ramberg, where there is a camp that I'd used before but it is usually summer only. Nothing ventured etc., I stopped into the restaurant that is part of it and always open and lo and behold I have a base. Asked if we could do a deal as I was intending to stay for at least four week. This brought a smile to the good ladies face and instead of the usual € 31 per night plus electric I get to use it all in, incl.,wifi, for € 6 per night. Not bitching about that.

So lets wait and see what develops, today and tomorrow just chill and check out a few locations. No stress.
