    The weekend begins at Moses lakes

    November 17, 2017 in the United States

    I caught the bas back to Seattle this morning.
    Nice and easy drive, no problem through customs. I think it's a kiwi bonus.
    Mike and Linda picked me up, it was so good to see them 😊 We spent the drive catching up and looking at the views. There was snow over the pass but otherwise all clear. Absolutely stunning sunset.

    I didn't realise about the family housing set up. Why does no one talk about it and just let me know?
    So we checked into a hotel. No matter how long I argued Mike made sure I was treated as their guest and got a room. I gave up arguing as I'd get as far as arguing with Bop, all for show and I'd get no where.
    I can't complain about a king bed room ❤

    We popped into to visit Shaun and Kelli and the kids. What an absolute trooper of a family. It was so great to finally meet everybody. Stayed for a wine and I'll see them for early thanksgiving tomorrow.

    You know your in America when Uncle Mike takes his gun out of the car and into the hotel room.
    I didn't actually surprise me, I'd imagine Bop doing the same if he lived in the state's. Being a military man, I do understand.
    I know guns don't help, but there are crazy people with guns out there. I can understand the safety factor when coming from a trained professional.

    Early thanksgiving celebreation

    November 19, 2017 in the United States

    Kelli and Shaun hosted us for the day. With 5 kids and a baby, it's a busy house.
    Spent the day helping shop for supplies and prep the food for dinner.
    Had a fantastic meal of home pig ham, turkey, and all the things that go with it.
    Finishing with pumpkin pecan slice.

    Like most family nights, it's about binding. So the cards came out to show our true colours.
    Even played cards against humanity with Linda.
    I had to explain what queefing was as it came up as an amswer, while everyone else was crying with laughter and embarrassment.

    Der größte Wasserfall der Welt

    September 30, 2017 in the United States

    ... Ohne Wasser.
    Hauptsächlich verbrachte ich den Tag in Spokane, was allerdings nicht sonderlich interessant ist, weswegen ich mir eine detaillierte Beschreibung spare.
    Auf dem Weg weiter Richtung Osten brachte mich ein Geocache auf einen Umweg, für den ich sehr dankbar bin. Ich habe die größten Wasserfälle der Welt gesehen...
    ...halt ohne Wasser. Das ist ausnahmsweise keinem Damm der USA u verdanken, sondern der Tatsache, dass er nur wenige Wochen existiert hat.
    Ein Wasserfall, der nur ein paar Wochen existiert, wie geht das? Das geht durch die letzte Eiszeit, in der gigantische Gletscher in Nordamerika viele Abflüsse blockiert haben und das Eis einen natürlichen Damm bildete. Brach dieser oder nahm das Wasser einen anderen Weg, so entstanden für kurze Zeit gigantische Flüsse. Diese erodierten die Landschaft und wir können heute sehen, was übrig ist.

    Half-Sun Travel Plaza

    August 19, 2017 in the United States

    Stopped at the nicest travel plaza for gas this morning. They had everything you could need from cowboy hats to snacks to food to wine tasting as well as very clean bathrooms. Excellent place to stop.

    The 14 miles preceding were unexpectedly educational. They listed the crop growing in each field behind the fences on the side of the highway. We saw beans, carrots, potatoes, alfalfa, field corn, sweet corn and green manure. It also informed us that Grant County, WA is the nation's highest producing county of potatoes. 🥔Read more
