New member from Norway

Hi all,

I would like to introduce myself; I'm a Norwegian, 62 years and retired. Live in Norway, but are visiting every year for about 2 months. My wife is from Oregon, so we spend our time mostly there with family and friends. We just bought a used 1995 Minnie Winnie, and we are looking so much forward to start our "new journey".

We have some friends in Hood River that also has a motorhome.

Our experience with motorhome is that we have had two here in Norway, but I know a lot is different here, so I will come back later with many question's. (sorry if my english is poor)

All the best
Hakon

Welcome, I have a good friend here in Calgary Alberta who has relatives in Norway and is always posting interesting pictures on Facebook. Looks like a beautiful country.

It's been quite a few years since I was fortunate to visit Norway, primarily around Oslo. Beautiful country, warm and friendly people! Having lived in Alaska for a couple of decades, I felt right at home in Norway.

Velkommen!

Hi again,

I have two questions for you here (not sure if this is "off topic" but I will try; How much extra gas could I expect to use if I will flat tow a car? (thinking of a Ford Focus or similar)

2. Where will be the best place to buy Roadside Assistance for my MH?
