Summer Vacation: The Quest for Groceries.


As many of you know, I live here and the only bus we get is the school bus. Thus I am without transportation for the duration of summer vacation.

Thankfully, it's only 3 km to the ferry lane at Rutledal, which is occasionally graced by a bus or two, and has a ferry running to the other side of the fjord (Rysjedalsvika).

So I asked the route finder at Fjord1 how to get myself from Rutledal to Eivindvik.

And it told me to take the ferry to Rysjedalsvika, the boat to Sollibotn, and from there a bus to Eivindvik.
Let me illustrate: (map taken from google maps and doodled on in GIMP because I stopped pirating software and therefore don't have Photoshop oh how I miss photoshop)

...yeah. Normal route would be along the dotted red line, then south on the main road to Nordgulen, where the bus turns westwards and mostly follows the coast, past Flolid to Eivindvik - a 30-minute drive. This proposed route takes three times as long.

I might as well go to Førde to do my groceries.. Either way I'd have no hope of bringing foods that require refrigeration home before they spoil.
