No internet and Birkebeiner 2010

Wednesday, November 4th, 2009

Many things were considered and taken into account account when we booked the bungalow; availability of internet was however overlooked (which will never happen again ;)) and, there is NO Internet in the house, aahhhh! Luckily it wasn’t hard to find an open accesspoint (THX toΒ  a close by computershop!!). Hehe, we are not that far off in creating a new daily routine; parking the car next to the shop, opening the laptops, zipping on a coffee/tea and checking emails, uploading blogposts, etc. πŸ˜‰
The non-availability of internet in da bungalow AND the 5hours time difference made me miss the sign-up for coming years Birkebeinerrittet 2010 which opened today at 09:00h, Norway time. Although I doubt if I would have been able to get in at all; all places were gone in 41 seconds, a new record!! With 16,500 people competing it’s quite a popular mountainbike race, eh? Oh well, I still have two options to enter once again: either I use my NL-address to get a ‘foreigner’-ticket, or I buy a ticket on the net in the weeks before the race (like I did the last two years)…I’ll find my way in, be sure that I won’t miss it! πŸ˜‰
