    LA to LA

    October 23, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    What a flat feeling this is, nearing 20,000klms and it’s back where it all began.
    After the last week of driving dirt desert roads it’s suddenly back to surviving the LA Freeways.
    After seeing no one much, it’s being in super crowded LAX with more nutters than on the New York Subway.
    Here it’s a good thing though, our flight doesn’t leave until 23:00, we are spending more time at the airport than in the air so the free entertainment help pass the time.

    We spent a bit more time down in “borderland” than we expected so we had to make a late dash up to LA.
    On this drive we had to go through a lot of border control checkpoints. These aren’t on the US/Mexican border but on roads leading from Mexico.

    They are manned by about 4 or 5 Border Control Police with detection dogs.
    They were all great, very polite and they had no issues with us at all until at one checkpoint the officer asked us a few questions then said “fine, thank you, have a safe trip”.
    As we were about to drive off the detection dog jumped at our RV and went mental barking at it.
    The border police officer quickly told us to stop probably thinking he made the bust of the day till he looked over at his colleagues and the dog handler who were killing them selves laughing.

    What happened was the detection dog reacted to the photo of a dog Cruise America stick on the door along with all the other decals they have on the RV.
    US border control costs the government billions, maybe a little more of this money needs to be spent on training their mutts.

    Thank you all for following and your interest especially commenters, Nick & Jan, Nor & Kay and of course Viki, till next time, adios amigos.... sorry Mexican influence should wear off soon.

    Camper abholen

    May 31, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 17 °C

    Wir sind heute alle ein bisschen aufgeregt - heute um 10:00 haben wir ein Date bei Cruise America! Endlich bekommen wir unseren RV (Recreation Vehicle 😏) der unser zu Hause für die nächsten 30 Tage werden soll. Alles funktioniert super, ein kurzes Einschulungsvideo und dann bekommen wir schon die Schlüssel und los gehts! ... wow, selbst für amerikanische Verhältnisse ist das ein Koloss... ein Wendekreis wie ein Sattelschlepper und eine Beschleunigung wie ein Frachtschiff... und das trotz einem V10 Motor 😖... aber suuuper geräumig und viel Komfort 👍
    Jetzt erst mal alles einräumen, Schlafplätze ausknobeln und alles auf Herz und Nieren testen (das hat Paula übernommen...)

    Hoffentlich hilft das Video dieses Ungetüm zu beherrschen!
