I Believe they were joining in a round britain event and when they got to the east coast they decided to go to Norway neither of the events were planned as they had started on the Scotrib cruise at oban they had no charts or clean clothes but maybe lots of wine

Safe in the knowledge that he is 13 thousand miles away, locked up for over a year, I think we can now reveal that that was because of donegaldan's "lifeboat" driving....

We took our Rib to Norway this year. In one word stunning!
Everyone was really friendly and we found it perfect for ribing!
Definitely going again either next year or the year after.

It was a great fun adventure and felt more so by the fact we had the place to ourselves most of the time. For us it seemed a logical place to go as Orkney and Shetland are relatively close to Norway. Worth all the effort and every penny it took to get there. Just don't go out for a drink to often... 27 for 3 pints!
