TCM: What’s a funny or memorable experience you’ve had while truck camping?
Bjarni Thor: This summer I went along with some friends camping for few days. We were driving around and saw a very small museum out in the country and decided to go inside. The very first thing I saw was a photo of my great-grandmother. She looked exactly like my mother! I got to talk with the warden at this museum who told me that not far away there is a house built by my great-grandfather about 100 years ago, so we went there also. Both my grandparents and my great-grandmother and my great-grandmother died long before I was born, so this was quite a surprise for me. The house is partially just as my great-grandfather built!
TCM: Is there anything that we didn’t talk about that you’d like to add to your interview?
Bjarni Thor: Nothing I can think of, except if you need rescuing on a camping trip in Iceland, check the weather report. Also, keep in mind not to take off into the Icelandic wilderness without having someone with you who knows where it is safe to travel. If you get into trouble and need some assistance or a rescue, keep in mind the Icelandic emergency number is 112, not 911 as in the United States.
