    Tombstone, USA

    January 20 in the United States

    Es waren mal 15'000 Einwohner, als hier 1879 Silber entdeckt wurde. Heute sind es noch 1600 Einwohner. In Tombstone fand die legendäre Schiesserei der Earp Brüdern und Doc Holliday 1881 statt.
    Für 10 Dollar konnten wir die Show live miterleben;-), was recht amüsant war, da das Publikum mit Buuh-Rufen und Gejuble zum mitmachen animiert wurde und die Schauspieler witzige Dialoge hatten.
    Die "Kulisse" wirkte meist wie im 19. Jahrhundert, ausser die Autos, die durch die Strassen fuhren... Viele Cowboys und Barmädchen mit üppigen Decolletés...Read more

    Chiricahua National Monument

    June 5, 2016 in the United States

    This is suppose to be a great summer spot, as the campground is at 5000 ft. Apparently there has been a severe hear wave in S AZ. There is not a breath of air stirring and very few birds, only Mexican Jays. The nights eventually cool done but the RV is 97 degrees in the afternoon!!! We are leaving and heading to a cooler location.

    Sonora --> Tucson

    August 27, 2017 in the United States

    Unsere Nacht im Auto war sehr angenehm und wir fuhren weiter in Richtung LA.
    Wir haben uns vorgenommen bis kurz vor die Grenze Tucson zukommen, um wieder auf einer Rest Area zu schlafen.
    Wir fuhren eigentlich nur auf der Autobahn und sahen uns die Gegend an.🙈😅 Die Gegend aber war sehr schön. Man sah schöne Berge und weite Wüsten. Frühstück und Mittag haben wir zugleich bei Burger King gegessen wo mich (Pascal) ein Mann angesprochen hat wo wir den her kommen.
    Ich sagte ihm das wir aus der Nähe Berlin kommen und er antwortete auf Deutsch, er sei aus Hamburg aber schon vor 50 Jahren nach Australien gezogen ist.
    Er hat auch Urlaub mit seiner Frau in den USA gemacht. Wir kamen ins Gespräch und er fragte uns wo wir denn schlafen würden. Ich guckte ihn lächelnd an und sagte in den Fiat 500 der da steht. Er lachte und hat gesagt das wir verrückt sind. 😂
    Es war ein sehr nettes Gespräch und haben uns verabschiedet, weil wir noch ein weiten Weg hatten.
    Das nächste kleine Ziel war dann El Paso, was an der mexikanischen Grenze liegt. Henry fand die Stadt echt schön wobei ich sie nicht so schön fand. Ausgestiegen sind wir nicht, weil es da nicht wirklich was zusehen gab. Also ging es weiter und haben uns einen netten Ort zum schreiben der Tagebücher gesucht und saßen an einer Rest Area mit wunder schönem Blick auf die Berge.
    Die Nacht war am kommen und wir schliefen mal wieder im Auto.

    Shootout at the OK corral

    November 26, 2016 in the United States

    We had no idea what to expect at the performance of the “Shoot-out at the OK Corral”.

    Heather thought that the performance would present a history lesson punctuated by a reenactment of the shootout. Gordon thought that there might be more than just a bunch of guys walking out, counting to 10 and then shooting each other, but could not imagine what it might be.

    What it turned out to be was more in the style of a early 20th century melodrama, lacking only a Mary Pickford tied to the train tracks. The acting was large and expansive to impart emotion (and to make up for not being able to hear everything that was said). The audience was encouraged to cheer the good guys (we were told that the good guys wore ties), and boo the bad guys (who wore dirty old clothes). Gordon embraced this audience participation fully, and looks forward to bringing this form of honest and forthright display of encouragement to his next local theater group performance. Heather did not display the same enthusiasm as Gordon. Perhaps it was because she had thought it was childish, or that the acting skill was lacking, or that the all the children (including Gordon) where entirely too loud in there booing.

    The performance was done all too soon, the dead scattered on the dirt before us. I would have cheered more and called for an encore, but I was afraid that the shooting of Gordon “Mad Dog” Sweet would have been the encore. Heather was applauding too, but I fear that it was because she was so happy that the performance was over.

    So with a tear in my eye, we fled the stands and headed back to our car.

    In search of warmer climes

    November 27, 2016 in the United States

    OK Arizona has been great. And we'd thought to further explore New Mexico, too. But Dang! Look at the nighttime temperatures coming up.

    We've decided to hightail it over to Texas and see if we can't extend our good fortune on the weather front. So to speak.

    Kartchner caverns state park

    March 4 in the United States

    Found this place by accident. And it is beautiful plus was only 6 hours drive. will tour cavern this afternoon and do hike tomorrow. it is a chilly 65 and supposedly will be 35 tonight. Awesome sleeping especially with electric blanket. no mosquitoes so windows open

    Just got back from a 2 hour guided tour of the most fabulous cave I have seen. It was discovered 1974 and made a state park in 1988. It has not been trashed and has been kept in it natural state as much as possible. It was beautiful. The campground is very nice. Highly recommend we all come back.Read more
