    Zwischenstopp Duabi

    September 5, 2016 in Saudi Arabia

    Nach 5h 40 min habe ich Dubai erreicht. Der Flug war echt anstrengend. Ich habe versucht zu schlafen, aber das hat irgendwie nicht funktioniert, obwohl ich echt todmüde war/bin.
    Habe mir deshalb ein paar Disneyfilme angeschaut 😍 wollte die Eiskönigin immer schon mal sehen und jetzt hat's mal geklappt. Jippi
    In Dubai angekommen habe ich mich erst mal schön verlaufen 😂 Aufzug hoch , Aufzug runter... dann fahren da lauter Bahnen und Busse.... also typisch Bauer: ich musste mich überall durchfragen.
    Jetzt warte ich , dass ich in den nächsten Flieger einsteigen kann und dann wartet ein Ca. 13 h Flug auf mich. Bin gespannt wie ich das aushalten soll... aber gibt ja noch mehr Disneyfilme 😍😍😍

    Al Henakiyah

    March 18, 2015 in Saudi Arabia

    We had a change in plans, which always happens in Saudi. We came here to install river (known as wadis)gauges, climate stations, and rainfall stations. We found out yesterday that we are not to install wadi stations at this time, which means our trip became a lot easier and shorter, but we still will drive great distances. Here are a couple photos from yesterday

    Longhorn steakhouse

    March 14, 2015 in Saudi Arabia

    Zach and I enjoying a Saudi Philly cheese steak in Riyadh. We skipped lunch and are having an early dinner at 3pm, trying to find ways to keep our eyes open. Trying to stay up until at least 8pm adjusting to time change

    Inventory and ready to hit the road

    February 20, 2016 in Saudi Arabia

    Today we were able to go through all the equipment that has been sitting in jeddah for a year. Good news it is all there. Let's hope it all works. I put a couple pictures of our team and loading up. One cool thing about today is that I saw the future tallest building in the world under construction. It will be one km tall when complete. Tomorrow we head east over the mountains to Taif

    Starbucks in Taif

    March 24, 2015 in Saudi Arabia

    I forgot to post last night but we made it to taif, a vacation town in the mountains outside of Jeddah and Mecca. We even came across rain as we arrived in Taif. We are tearing ourselves to an iced coffee (a rare find in Saudi) before we depart. Notice the family only sign at Starbucks. We convinced the guy to let us in and serve us

  • Day11

    2 more stations down

    February 29, 2016 in Saudi Arabia

    We are now in the town of Afif. We finished 2 more stations. One was a way stations with a bride about 8m high and the other was a weather station. The weather station is pretty nice compared to the wadi stations. Nothing too exciting happened. Just long hot days in the sun. There temperature has gotten warmer as we have headed east from the mountains.

    On our way to Buraydah

    March 16, 2015 in Saudi Arabia

    So we finally left Riyadh and are currently two hours into a 4 hour drive to Buraydah. We were fortunately able to depart Riyadh a day early. I only have one photo today which is of us stuck inside a supply store during prayer. We were waiting for them to tally up our bill as the doors began to close and lock for prayer (notice doors closed in the background). We found out halfway through prayer that we needed an Atm to settle the bill but had to wait out the remainder of the 30 prayer before we could find an ATM. Fortunately they had chairs for usRead more

  • Day8


    March 20, 2015 in Saudi Arabia

    We made it to Tabuk, as far north as we will go. We began on our first climate station. As you can see in the photos these stations take some time. Started in the afternoon and had to shut it down when it for dark. We will return to the site this morning and hopefully finish it off

  • Day9

    Back to Tabuk

    March 21, 2015 in Saudi Arabia

    Today we attempted to leave tabuk and came across some great photo opportunities but failed at installing sites due to only half our Sim cards not being activated. We did complete the climate station we started though.
    So we had a close up experience with some camels in a wadi and saw some guy on a horse pull up to the hospital as we were on the roof

  • Day14

    Taking inventory

    March 26, 2015 in Saudi Arabia

    Today was our last real busy day. We met with the drivers one last time, completed a full inventory and filled their vehicles up for next time. We are having them store all the equipment in Jeddah to save us time next trip. After a full days work we went to one of the only Mexican food places in Saudi. It is similar to chipotle. Our driver loves Mexican food and i took him to this place last time. The only photo I took besides inventory was of the Kingdom towerRead more
