The Primus Rally is an event I heard about for the first time last summer, when I was staying with the Cozy Chicks MCC in Denmark on my way back from the Iceland Star Grab. Their summer party co-incided with my visit, and it was there I met the President of Hot Wheels MCC. He suggested that if I liked the Elephantentreffen, I should definitely join them in February as their fleet of sidecars would make the journey from Denmark north, by ferry to Oslo, and on to the camping spot high up in the hills of Bjornea in Norway. I returned back to England after the party in the summer to a very empty bank balance, without work lined up, but with plenty of fond memories from Iceland and the people I met along the way. With oil coming from the base gasket of the 640, plus needing to refresh most of my camping equipment, I wouldn't be able to commit to the journey until I got my finances in order, though I had managed to convince a friend I made on the Iceland ferry that he should join me if I could do it. After months of searching job boards I managed to pick up a short-term contract, but it involved working for three months before my first payment - in January! With money finally in the bank but with only one month to get ready I got in touch with the Danes to see if it was still a go - it was, and I was going.
