“Travels to a Different Time” : 10July1975: Fauske, Norway: Mystery Woman Disappears : Obnoxious Norwegian

The girl, I don’t know her name, was up at 7:30 and took a shower and was on the road. I was next and packed up and hit the road. Picked up by some Frenchmen. Next ride with a Norwegian and two girl hitchhikers he had picked up. The girls got off at Narwick and we continued on. The roads here are not that great and there are many potholes. We had to take two ferries. They were heading off in a different direction so they let me off at Fauske where I really had to stay as I had no Norwegian currency. I stayed at some hostel but it was more like a cheap hotel that members of some club can stay at. Most of the guests are old and have cars and money. I checked in and rushed out to get some food as I hadn’t eaten in 24 hours. Ate well and returned to my room to do a wash. I met a German guy and played some Frisbee. While we were getting ready for bed some weird Norwegian guy stormed in and demanded we turn the radio off. I could have slugged him.
