    Route 66: Eine gemütliche Fahrt

    September 19 in the United States

    Heute geht es von Gallup nach Santa Fe, wo wir einen Pausentag einlegen. Wir starten zu einer recht humanen Zeit bei eher etwas kälterem Wetter mit bewölktem Himmel, etwas ganz neues für uns. Im Laufe der Fahrt klart der Himmel dann aber recht schnell auf und es geht wieder an die gewohnten 30°, sodass ich mich bei unserer Pause in Albuquerque dazu entscheid mal wieder ohne Jacke weiter zu fahren.
    Keine gute Idee. Ca. 20 Minuten nachdem wir weiter gefahren sind, türmen sich die Wolken auf und der Himmel wird schwarz. Plötzlich fängt das erste Gewitter seit dem Start unserer Reise vor 3 Monaten an. Es ist sogar unser erster Regen in den USA. Und das auf dem Motorrad, herrlich... Im Auto lässt es sich zwar aushalten, aber selbst hier sieht man wegen des Regens so gut wie nichts. Schnell fahren wir die nächste Abfahrt runter und suchen einen Unterschlupf. Leider ist weit und breit nichts zu finden. Wir stellen uns in eine Sackgasse neben dem Highway. Mal wieder haben wir Glück im Unglück und eine ältere Dame hält mit ihrem Camper an derselben Stelle. Sie bittet uns zu sich in den Camper, wo wir vor dem Regen geschützt sind und bietet uns Getränke an. Nach ca. 10 Minuten klart der Himmel wieder auf, wir verabschieden uns von der netten Dame, lassen ihr noch Bier als Dankeschön da und schwingen uns wieder auf die Bikes. Nach 20 Minuten kommen wir durchgefroren und nass bis auf die Knochen am Hotel in Santa Fe an und gönnen uns eine heiße Dusche und ein leckeres Essen beim Mexikaner.

    Meow Wolf

    March 26 in the United States

    I never dropped LSD, but after a couple of hours in this interactive museum, I think I have a pretty good idea of what it was like. 😳

    Meow Wolf’s first permanent installation, launched in March 2016 with support from Game Of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin, showcases the THEA Award-winning House of Eternal Return, where guests discover a multidimensional mystery house with secret passages, portals to magical worlds, climbing apparatus, and surreal, maximalist & mesmerizing art exhibits.Read more

    Santa Fe

    March 28, 2015 in the United States

    750 km and 8 hours later we arrived in Santa Fe. We were both looking forward to a delicious meal of New Mexican cooking and weren't disappointed with the food at the Blue Corn Cafe. JS enjoyed a spicy chili lime margarita.

    On the road again

    June 11, 2015 in the United States

    Excitement filled the air this morning as the 4 sisters got up, got their coffee and tea and got ready found the big trip.

    The first order of business was to take a photo of chocolate man. Then we were off to visit Tim and Jamie at their house. They have worked hard to make their house and yard beautiful, as you can see in the photo from their back yard.

    At 11:30 a.m. we were on the road headed south. In Westminster we took a detour to find Grandpa Pomeroy's house. And we found it! There is a little garden wall in front of the house that wasn't there originally. The field that used to be across the street was full of houses and a gated community. Still it was neat to see the old house standing with a family living in it.

    By now the stomachs of all 4 sisters were singing in unison about hunger. We had passed a lot of restaurants on the way to Grandpa's house. Google led the way to Nancy's Cafe. The outside was non-descript, the inside was no better, but the food and the service were excellent!

    Patsy brought a book along to read aloud, Love Does by Bob Goff. We started reading and discussing what we read. Our plan was to take a second detour in Pueblo and find the house we all used to live in. But we were so engrossed in the book that we drove right through Pueblo and didn't even notice. Ah well.

    There was lots of rain and some hail as we traveled down I25. Joyce was driving, so it didn't bother the rest of us at all. By sunset the storms had moved east of us.

    Somewhere along the way, after we had called Richard and Judy, we decided to spend the night in Santa Fe. We filled up the gas tank in Raton (thanks Dennis for filling it up yesterday when you washed the bug guts off the car) and had supper at Dennys. I asked the gas station attendant how long it would take to drive to Santa Fe from Raton. He said 2 hours. Boy did that sound familiar. It actually took a little longer than that. We stopped at a rest stop about half way to Santa Fe, and while waiting for everyone to gather together we were attacked by a pair of birds who were sure we were a threat to their babies in the nest. They did us no harm, but scolded us for a long time and flying at us and all around us before settling down in the nest.

    We pulled into the comfort in about 10:30 and have settled ourselves down for a long spring nap. Tomorrow is art in Santa Fe.

    On to Santa Fe

    April 12, 2016 in the United States

    We departed Palo Duro Canyon for Santa Fe, New Mexico. A good drive: smooth roads, no wind, light traffic. Santa Fe Skies RV Park is nice with views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Jemez Mountains, Cerrillos Hills, the Ortiz Mountains and the Sandia Peak. There are metal sculptures throughout the park.Read more
