Bug Convention #29 in Örnsköldsvik, North Sweden.

Ok first, don’t even try to pronounce the name of the town, You will not come even close…:)

Second, this is a good show, small and cozy, not worth driving 2000km, but since I had to be here, I’m happy I stopped by… so nice people and very cool cars… here’s my small report!

Setting was perfect on a campground who also hired “Stuga” (Cabins) and off course it was lake side, in north Sweden its hard to do something not at a lake side as there are lakes everywhere!
