Stefan had lost the key for the helmet lock! …Hannes took off towards Lake Geneva and the rest boiled in their gear, waiting. A small Allen key from the next service station fixed the problem and the flipper-helmet came off, yeeha !
Along Lake Vierwaldstätter towards Sarnen, and the skies looked dark but the rain held off. Past Lake Sarnen and Lake Lungern it was up the Brünigpass (1008 m) and on to Meiringen, the day’s target.
The Simons-Herberge was easy to find, the rooms proved simple and rustic with not too much comfort, but they’re very reasonably priced…for Switzerland, anyway.
Here we met Fred from Frechen (near Köln), who wanted to hook up for the next 2 days. Dinner (Sfr 13 Franken /~9 €) was Geschnetzeltes, Rösti and Salat and a small dessert…. and Stefan made up for the Luzern-wait with some complimentary drinks for the bunch.
