The second day passing Germany

Things that keep me busy so far… getting my spare tire fixed again now in a little town called Gluckstadt. Crossing the Elbe on the ferry isn’t cheap, a total of €12 for a 15 minute crossing surely pays for itself. The view was nice though with sun shimmering over the water as we crossed over.

I was a little concerned about the service battery. It wasn’t getting any charge and so I couldn’t turn the cooler on. I peeked under the hood when we crossed the Elbe and found a loose wire. It was quickly fixed by replacing the connector and reattaching the wire. Started the engine and waited 20 seconds. Yes…full charge again. Turned up the cooler and ready am feeling it getting colder.

After a full day of driving to get on track, found a nice spot behind a parking at Thorsminde Denmark. The boys are chilling on the sand while I prepare food.

New addition to the backend

Today I considered the amount of fuel Hermes will be using to bring me around the 6500 +kms on the Norway trip. Is a little stagering that i will be burning up to 700 liters of diesel. Thats is quite the amount.

Now when I then consider the 38 liter tank and the distances on a day, i wanted to make sure I can at least do 450 kms a say on one tanking. Yes the numbers wont add up on just the fuel tank. So i had to add another 20 liters to the current measurement.

The result adding a 20 liter lockable Jerrycan to the back. so I was iff to the local suppoier for some nuts and bolts. I allready had the Jerrycan and the accompanying bracket. Drill at the ready and pushing through the outer shell. The bolting the bracket with anti leak washers. Result is nice and solid see picture.

Yes its also lockable and easy to lift the extra 20 kilos of diesel.
