- The consulate comes out!
On today?s stage I had company by the Danish Consulate.
One senior officer, Lisbeth, and two young trainees came out to help
crewing and even run part of the stage in relay-style beside me. Much
appreciated - and a good chance to begin brushing up my old native Danish
tongue; if things go right there shouldn?t bee so long until I will be on
home ground again :-)
After the stage we had a good meal (at a health-restaurant with a M in the
logo ;-) And the consulate people helped me solve the long lasting problem
with getting my singular connection for the gps-picture signal to the
website. 1 hour of trying and a positive employee at singular and the
is up and working again. Pictures should be online from tomorrow?s stage
The next stages are:
13.08: To: New Lennox / alternative route via Manhattan.
- all the above on hwy. 30 East.
