Working with the Jøkotour:
In trying to avoid diesel powered train lines, we, Jøkleba, are looking into alternatives. Electric cars are definitely the cleanest option. But,.. how can we know how the electricity we use to power the cars is produced? Coal-burning power plants are not the future, that is certain. In water-powered Norway this is easier, but as we move down Germany and Austria into Slovenia, Serbia, Bulgaria and Turkey? We are contacting the different green organizations to find out more about this. In the meantime we check with the “Car-Collective” in Oslo, who cooperates with other car-sharing organizations in Europe, about where we can rent electric cars. A search tells us that we can´t, so they contact head of Avis International, who also does a quick search and finds the same results. No Avis – office in Europe do electric cars. Hard to believe, but this is the situation as of today 12 feb 2014 . The search continues……..
Direct from stage in Bodø´s wonderful concert hall , we start the first leg of the 2014 Jøkotour by night train to Trondheim, day train to Oslo. The tour continues later this year with concerts in Oslo, and Copenhagen before diving into the long stretch to Germany, Austria, Bulgaria, Istanbul,Bologna, and ending in the UK before going back to Norway
