In reply to Mr_Lang, May 1, 2002

I have a cousin here in the US that packed his camera, laptop and whatever, and traveled the perimiter of the United States. His goal was to write a book. He photographed and interviewed people all along the way and I believe it took him about 6 months to finish the trip.

I don't know the outcome of his journey, but I bet he could help with tips for a trip like that.

I'll look into that:) Actually I have a bunch of friends from back
home that race rally cars... Just local heroes- no big names, but
If I'm lucky I'll bump into them if I go to the right racing strips
at the right time:] Might get some interesting inside shots if I'm
lucky:] I heard earlier that one of them might enter with his
streetcar to Pite-Drag. Not shure if thats gonna happend, but It
would be fun:)

Like I say- I have about 2 weeks to travel south and if I get as
far as Anderstorp I'm shure to stop by:)

Any other interesting places to visit? Altho Norway border to
Sweden- Its amazing how little I know about our brothers in the
east... Bet It'll be interesting to learn about their country:)

I'll keep posting as I plan my trip... Still have some variables
that havent been calculated... Like the car... I have to do some
serious mecanical work to get it into shape, but in 2 weeks time
I'll drive back to my fathers workshop and get my fingers dirty...

Mvh. Mr_Lang

Great! Let's see it!

I'm American but spent lots of time in southern Sweden (Anderstorp)
and have family there. Like Norway, Sweden has wonderful people and
very beautiful countrysides.
Since you mentioned that you are going to a drag strip I just
thought I'd put in a plug about the Scandinavian Raceway in
Anderstorp. Its an ex-Formula 1 track with much of its racing done
in Spring and Summer. Some of the biggest names in racing have been
there and it still continues to host some very exciting racing.
(Swedish Touring Cars and Rallying are some good examples)
I look forward to see your voyage thru Sweden, great idea! PLease
keep us posted and give us the website (if different from this
forum) that you'll use to show pictures and give details of your
trip. Make sure to keep your camera dry though as it rains a bunch
in Sweden.

Tack!

If you ever drop your camera into a river of molten lava, let it go, because, man........it's gone!
