Zell am See
The sun was out and we set off for Zell am See. But we were told the road over the Grossglockner was closed, so we had to take a car train. Once off the train, we started up the mountain and broke a chain. Judy and Pat had to stand on the rear bumper so Louie could climb the hill. We rode all the way to the top and all the way to the bottom like that, then the other chain broke and wrapped around the axle. We finally got to Zell am See and found an excellent youth hostel, had a shower and washed our hair. Tomorrow we will deal with the chain.
