Coast to Coast - Day 13

September 18, 2013

Ok, we are not superstitious, but today was the 13th day of Karlis journey and at the 13th kilometer of this day's stretch our camper lost it's generator belt. Also today Karlis had to skate on a road covered with gravel and by skate we mean walk. Unfortunately the generator belt was also responsible for driving the water pump, so we lost not only power but also cooling. In a slow pace we reached nearby town Storuman and tomorrow the guys form local auto service will try to fix our home. Due to all this today Karlis made only 28km further with the average speed of 10km/h. Nevertheless nothing of this has broken our spirits and we are eager to be on the road again. In the picture you can see how we upgraded Karlis skates to make them waterproof Latvian style.
