    LA Freeways

    September 22, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    The story told before about the trip to “Vegan Leather Land” ended up taking one and a half hours to go a distance of eight miles, we ended up doing fifty, no exaggeration.
    We passed where we started from, The Los Angeles Times building and the airport twice. We went east when we should have gone west, north when we should have gone south.
    In the end we had to take over directions, we knew LA better than he did, he didn’t have a clue.
    The poor buggar had a crap car, I had to wrench the door closed then kick it open with both feet.
    His GPS was a hand held phone with a shattered screen and covered in dirt, he rested it on the passenger seat where it fell through some rips in the material a few times.

    I felt sorry for him especially when Uber’s quote was for $8.00 which we expected to pay.
    When the receipt came through we were charged nearly US$100.00.
    Not feeling so sorry for him anymore I contacted Uber to dispute the fare.
    On your Uber account there is a map of all past rides. All of ours ha a fairly simple line from pickup to destination, this one looked like a plate of spaghetti so with the dispute with Uber after they asked if we requested any different directions or stops I said “look at our tracking map and do you think anyone directing a route like that would be sane enough to communicate with you right now... No! they’d be too #**! ing crazy. This seem to work because we got our refund immediately.

    The trip out to Cruise America was the complete opposite. We got a gorgeous Latino girl, the car was spotless and took a fraction of time compared to our spaghetti ride to “Veganville”

    It’s good to be back in the RV and apparently we get special privileges, what ever they are because we are regular renters.
    Finally it was all good but LA wasn’t finished with us yet.... after booking in, stocking up and heading off we hit the LA Freeways which equals eight lanes of traffic going nowhere.

    Stay tuned for the next post because we have passed through 4 states already and yes stuff has been happening!

    Stuck until further notice

    July 26, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 73 °F

    Currently stuck in the town of Glenwood Springs. A mudslide washed over I-70 around 2pm and they still haven't cleaned it. The only detour to the south is blocked by a rockslide! We decided to hunger down in glenwood until further notice. Here is some pictures of our scenic route through Colorado though.Read more

    Hoch hinaus in den Rockies

    August 6, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C

    Ohne Zmorge verliessen wir Winter Park über den Berthoud Pass und stoppten in Idaho Springs. Es gab 3 viel zu volle Teller mit Zmorge und überfressen gings dann Richtung Mount Evans. Wir haben uns für einen Umweg entschieden und nahmen den Squaw Pass. Dann gings auf den Mount Evans, und der Strassenzustand verschlechterte sich mit jedem Höhenmeter. Auch die Motorleistung liess aufgrund der dünnen Luft deutlich nach. Kurz vor dem Gipfel konnten wir noch eine Herde Schneeziegen aus der Nähe betrachten. Nach einem kurzen Aufenthalt oben gings dann wieder runter bis nach Idaho Springs wo wir die Autobahn wieder zurückfuhren bis zum Loveland Pass. Dieser war schnell bezwungen und nach ein paar Fotos machten wir noch die Bekanntschaft mit einem Auslandschweizer aus Vancouver, der hier in den Ferien war. Danach gings in Richtung Independence Pass und Aspen. Heute blieben wir auf dem ganzen Weg trocken und wir beendeten den Tag in Glenwood Springs.

    Fahrleistung 284 Meilen (457km)

    Glenwood Canyon, Colorado

    June 2, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    Amazing place, red rocks with pines, so different from the alpine terrain nearby. We were going to Grand Junction, but stopped here to camp last night instead. We went on Grizzly Creek Trail before leaving.

    Camping by the Colorado River

    May 14, 2016 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 9 °C

    I made a pit stop in Denver to see the sites and I fell in love. Definitely a place to visit often. After that I keep heading west and have seen the most majestic mountains.. Some had snow on their caps. The rock work and steep grades made for an awesome downhill drive, hugging curves and catching all the scenery I could. I stopped at a campsite right next too the Colorado river. I could literally fall if if I'm not carefull lolRead more

    Glenwood Springs

    September 2, 2016 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 14 °C

    So excited to see Nikki, we got a quick tour of her school & hit the road for Glenwood Springs. Turns out that Doc Holliday "retired" to the town for health reasons so it has an interesting history. As usual we can count on Nikki for so many nuggets of info. Our Airbnb was on a farm & we met puppies on our arrival. We enjoyed the view & a beer and explored the cute, modern, & comfortable apt. we will call home for the next couple days.Read more

    No Name/ Jess Weaver Trail

    September 3, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    After some research, Nikki found the perfect warm up hike, Jess Weaver Trail in a community called No Name. Located near the water treatment plant, the trail followed a rushing river and had us crossing overturned logs as we climbed along its banks. Our reward was a great view of the pass & waterfall.Read more
