  • Day7


    July 8, 2017 in the United States

    Day six: At the beginning of today we visited an old cowboy town near Sioux Falls. A small rebuild village with buffalos as well. At the shop I got nice looking stickers of all states I've been or I will be.
    Afterwards we continue to a two hrs ride to an Indian Resort. Just one word: Wow! From now to then the nature changed dramatically. We such crossed a lake and boom! No more green, just ocher gras and an awesome landscape. It looked beautiful!
    Then we started our last stage. On this ride we saw about a million ads for Wall Drug. So we just decided to have a look at this. Wall is a cowboy town and the Drug Store sells souvenirs of that.
    An Indian told us that they hate Custer and that they celebrate their Independence Day when Custer died. In Wall they glorify him.
    Very interesting history!
    The Badland NP we didn't see today at all. We will do it tomorrow's morning before we get to Black Hills.
    - The true roadtrip starts now! 🚗💨

    Minuteman Missile

    October 16, 2017 in the United States

    Ich besuche die Minuteman Missile Historic Site. Sie erinnert an die Zeit, als hier, im Herzen Amerikas, 1.000 atomare Interkontinentalraketen stationiert waren. Die Silos waren über das ganze Land verstreut, jeder mindestens 10 Meilen vom nächsten entfernt. Für je zehn Silos gab es einen unterirdischen Kontrolllbunker. Je zwei Offiziere waren immer für 24-Stunden-Schichten dort eingeschlossen, bereit, die vier Schlüssel gleichzeitig zu drehen und damit die Hunde der Hölle loszulassen.
    Das ganze folgte der Doktrin der gegenseitigen gesicherten Vernichtung, mutually assured destruction oder kurz MAD.
    Ich wende mich ostwärts, parallel zur Interstate 90. Der Sommer ist zurück, mit Mittagstemperaturen von über 20 Grad. Mit Rückenwind bin ich bald in Kadoka.
