    Guadalupe National Park, TX

    October 25, 2016 in the United States

    Highest point in Texas!

    Our first stop in Texas made for a tough decision. Take a short jog on a loop track or commit to the 6-8 hour trek up to Guadalupe Peak. The risk was that it was 3pm when we got there and sundown was at about 6.30.

    Fool hardy with a she'll be right attitude we stuffed our backpacks with water and sugar and made the ascent. By 'made' I mean we coughed, spluttered and snot-rocketed our way to the top, climbing 1000m over 7km. The views were worth a million dollars!

    Obviously work like that deserves a calorific reward, and where better to award that than a good old fashioned texan smokehouse bbq, washed down with a bud. Slept like a baby that night!

    Carlsbad caverns/ Guadalupe Mountains

    November 19, 2017 in the United States

    Yesterday I went to Carlsbad Caverns NP. Probably my favorite cave to date. It's so big and open. I went on an audio tour which I greatly enjoyed. It was so well done. The stops were relevant and interesting. Good interpretation. The first tour I've enjoyed since interp training. But the cave itself is really cool. It had all sorts of decorations like cave popcorn and bacon and stuff. But the lighting was also really cool. They wanted to light the path but for it to still feel cavernous and not be too light as to encourage animals to come in. So they hired a Broadway lighting expert person. It's a cool cave.
    Then I camped in blm land and in the morning made the 1/2hr drive to Guadalupe mountains. I summited Guadalupe peak which was a rough 9 mile hike but I made it. It was really gorgeous up there. It's literally a desert so there were so many cool cacti and things. And thankfully it wasn't too hot. Then I went back to the blm land where coyotes were howling all night. Pretty cool couple of days.

    More adventures tomorrow!

    On the road to El Paso

    December 18, 2017 in the United States

    Mit 80 mph unterwegs auf fast leeren Strassen. Hier in Amerika sehen wir so viele tote Tiere auf den Strassen von Waschbären über Hunde zu Rehen... Da tut mir jedes Mal das Herz weh:-(
    Wunderschöne Landschaften...eher karg, aber eindrucksvolle Weiten und Hügel

    Guadalupe peak

    February 2, 2017 in the United States

    So started off early to hike the peak, but missed the top by less than a 10th of a mile, there was ice across the trail. I tried but decided this View was enough. So only did 8.2 miles all up or all down

    Van Horn

    November 18, 2016 in the United States

    Nach einem langen Tag fahren musste ich eine Kontrolle der Grenzpolizei passieren. Grundsätzlich gar kein Problem mit meinem Visa und etwas ganz normales nahe der mexikanischen Grenze. Nachdem mich ein Agent mehrere Minuten lang befargt hat bat er mich höflich den Camper zu parkieren und das Fahrzeug zu verlassen. In der folgenden halben Stunde wurde mein Camper aufs genauste von sieben Agents nach Drogen und illegalen Einwanderern durchsucht. Unterdessen wurde ich draussen, es war Nacht und kalt, von einem weiteren Agent bewacht. Obwohl ich wusste dass es nichts zu finden gibt war die Situation nicht gerade angenehm für mich.

    Wenn ich mir jedoch die Situation durch den Kopf gehen lasse kann ich die Entscheidung der Agents nachvollziehen. Ein Ausländer der alleine ein riesigen Camper in der Nacht nahe der mexikanischen Grenze fährt und auch noch etwas verwirrende Antworten gibt.

    Long first day

    March 3 in the United States

    So planned on staying at Balmorhea State Park but they are renovating and forgot to post that there was no overnight available. So arrived there at 6 pm and had to continue on. Found a RV park in Van Horn, which by the way is what Van Horn, TX is mainly made up of. So nice showers, electricity and almost quiet. It will be a good rest and then move on in morning. Sorry no photos it was dark when I arrived and lucky all pull thru sites so did not have to try and back up the trailer in the dark.Read more
