    Standing on the corner - Winslow Arizona

    August 25, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 34 °C

    Eagles - Take it Easy, listen to the song... we're standing on the corner in Winslow Arizona. And it was playing across the street out loud while we were here. And there's even a flatbed Ford parked outside. Unbelievable!

    Monument Valley

    September 22, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    Wir sind um ca. 15 Uhr angekommen und haben direkt unsere Offroad Tour durchs Monument Valley für heute auf 16 Uhr anstatt morgen früh gebucht ☺️

    Vor der Tour haben wir noch in unsere Premium Cabin eingecheckt.
    Der Wahnsinn, ich kann’s euch sagen. 😍 😍 😍
    Das ist total verrückt ☺️ Wir sind in einer kleinen Holzhütte mit Terrasse, in der ersten Reihe mit Blick auf das Monument Valley 😁 und die kleinen Hütten sind auch noch super ausgestattet.

    Wir sind beide hin- und weg von dieser Unterkunft.
    Sollten wir diese oder eine ähnliche Tour jemals wieder planen, dann muss diese Hütte unbedingt dabei sein ☺️

    Hier bekommt man auch absolut nichts mit, von dem ganzen Rummel der direkt am View Hotel ist ☺️
    Besser geht es echt nicht mehr.

    OMG 🙈 ich schreibe schon wieder viel zu viel 😂
    Aber vor lauter Begeisterung sprudeln die Worte 😁

    Unsere 2,5 Stunden lange Jeep Tour ist um 16 Uhr gestartet. Auch da hatten wir wieder einmal Glück und haben eine private Tour nur für uns alleine bekommen ☺️

    Es war einfach gigantisch was wir alles gesehen haben. Ich hätte am liebsten viel mehr Fotostopps eingelegt 😍

    Die Fahrt durch tiefen Sand und Schlaglöcher, sodass es einen aus dem Sattel gehoben hat war ziemlich funny 😁

    Ob die Fotos die ich während der Fahrt im Jeep gemacht habe etwas geworden sind, das bezweifle ich sehr stark 😂

    Egal, rechtzeitig vor Sonnenuntergang waren wir am Viewhotel und da konnten wir den berühmten Blick auf die drei Felsen bei bestem Licht fotografieren 😍

    Eins hab ich noch vergessen 😅
    Wir haben heute gelernt was Danke bei den Indianern heißt.

    Besser gesagt, Didi kann es perfekt 😂 er wird es euch bestimmt vorsagen, wenn ihr ihn mal danach fragt 😂😂😂

    Monument Valley

    October 1, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Vom Lake Powell ( Antelope Canyon) sind wir weiter Richtung Monument Valley. Dort haben wir nur eine Nacht verbracht. Wir haben zuvor im Reiseführer gelesen, dass der Sonnenaufgang sowie Sonneuntergang spektakulär sei- dies war definitv der Fall. Zudem war es Remos Geburi und wir habens gemütlich genommen. Beim Momnuent Valley gibt es eine Panoramastrasse die zu einzelnen Punkten führen würde. Dies konnten wir nicht machen, da ein 4x4 Wagen benötigt wird. Wir hatten den Caming aber gleich vor Ort und eine wunderschöne Aussicht auf diese grossen Felsen in der sonst kahlen Prärie. Diese Aussicht erinnrete an den einen oder anderen Westernfilm. Dort wurden auch viele von diesen gedreht.😊

    Danke nochmals allen die ein Video für Remo geschickt haben. Dies war eine tolle Überraschung.

    Day 7 Holbrook, AZ - Broken Arrow Bible

    June 2, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 81 °F

    Day 7 KOA Holbrook, AZ - Broken Arrow Bible Ranch (near the Petrified Forest)
    Miles rides - 103 (Caroline did her first 100)
    Ants killed in the Van - 34

    Our accommodations at the KOA were surprisingly nice. I had always thought KOA were for just tents and stuff. I tried to get on the internet but was unsuccessful. While the team went to the Chuckwagon for breakfast, I stayed by the Van to watch the gear and the bicycles. We never go anywhere unless the bicycles are locked in a room, or someone is watching them on the back of the Van. Neil did another video conversation with a couple that had an RV just begin the girls' cabin. And then he had another conversation with a couple at the Pancake breakfast event.

    Glenn filled up with gasoline as we pulled out of town. We needed to make sure we had a full take of gas because of the roads we were traveling. The cyclists were doing great. I think they stopped two times before we had lunch. We found the only restaurant opened in town. The Village Cafe. We tried to call ahead but no answer. Once we pulled over, I went into this small cafe and looked for a table. None. There was this one lady and her two daughters that offered their table to us. At this point, Neil was already engaging in a conversation, so Neil, the guy and the camera crew came inside and out fo the heat. Man was it hot. I told Uma our sandwich order that Glenn and I share, then we drove back 3 blocks to get some ice and bottles of water for the cooler. Once we returned, Glenn and I sat down to eat lunch. This was a long break. It is just hard. to have. a quick "pit-stop" when you are going to have conversations with people.

    While Glenn was moving stuff around in the Van, I stood outside and were talking with the lady and her 2 daughters that gave up her table for us. She was so excited when I told her what the #conversationsCoasttoCoast was all about. She voiced that she started going to a local Community church and was really involved in it. She said she use to go to the Catholic Church but has really felt lead to go to this non-denomination church. She called up her pastor, Tim, came to the Village Cafe to meet Neil for a few minutes. He even prayed for Neil. It was exciting to encourage Monica to share her faith.

    As we were leaving, and the camera crew were setting up a shot for Neil with the drone however he started having a conversation with an itinerate. Glenn was busy rearranging the back seats and securing the cold water bottles and all. I did not hear this conversation, but this is what I saw. Jeff, who is on the team, ask if he could use my to-go box and then he poor some water in the square container and walked up the itinerate man and his dog. I asked him what he was going to do with that water, and he exclaimed it was for the thirsty dog.

    The scenery was just beautiful. Tall brown mountains that jutted up over the landscape. At one point, I exclaimed "Wow" as we turned the corner, then following right behind, Wes exclaimed "Wow" through the walkie-talkies!

    We drove through the Indian town of Zuni and then on to Broken Arrow Bible Ranch. I called Alfie P. who recommended this location for our team to stay, and he was so excited to hear that these accommodations worked out. Also the camp did not charge us anything at all to stay and eat the dinner meal.

    Our accommodations were very rustic to say the least. We each had our own cabin that had 8 other bunkbeds. And the shower and toilets were just around a few trees and down a gravel pathway. As Glenn was unpacking, we couldn't locate the Tomba's sleeping bags. We gave them our sleeping bags and we used the sheet and Bolivian blanket that we had stored under neath the seat - for just like a need like this. I was very happy to sleep under the wam blanket. We arrived well after the campers had their meals, however, we saw around the table and talked with Lois and her daughter and their experiences living in NM. This was not recorded or film, however it was a conversation where we learned more. They sang a Christian song in their native Indian language.

    Everyone settled in and so did we. I was so tired, that I just plopped myself down on the bed, and I had Glenn cover me up and I was sound asleep - even in my clothes. Fortunately I did not wake up at all during the night. Someone from the team said they didn't mind waking up, cause they could see the beautiful night sky and stars. That's a good way to look at it.

    Pictures are not in order...but were for Day 7

    Monument Valley

    November 11, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C

    Stunning location with a circular driving tour around the valley.
    The View Hotel is also excellent with high-quality rooms. The restaurant food is also very good but, if ordering burgers, you need to order one between as they supply two large burgers. The Navajo stew is particularly nice and very healthy as it's made with lots of vegetables.

    NB: There is no mobile signal in Monument Valley but the View Hotel has Wi-Fi.

    Amerikanischer Monsunregen

    September 24, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    Die Wolken haben sich heute leider den ganzen Tag nicht verzogen, im Gegenteil, es hat einfach ganztags geregnet😒. Mit Ausnahme eines kleinen Ausrasters meinerseits! haben wir aber das Beste daraus gemacht. Wir besuchten einen of the most extraordinary places on earth, einen Meteor Krater. Vor 50'000 Jahren ist ein Meteorit in der Nähe von Flagstaff eingeschlagen, sodass er einen Krater in der Grösse von 20 Fussballfeldern inkl. Tribünen für 2 Millionen Menschen bewirkte. Claude hat ausgerechnet, dass dieser Meteorit 64'000 Tonnen schwer gewesen sein musste!
    Anschließend fuhren wir trotz Regen durch den Nationalpark Petrified Forest. Das Wetter schuf geradezu eine mystische Stimmung, weil durch den Regen die Weitsicht ziemlich eingeschränkt war. Dieser NP liegt auf einem Hochplateau auf 2000 m über Meer.
    Im Petrified Forest sind neben aussergewöhnlichen Gesteinsformationen ganze versteinerte Baumstämme zu sehen! Das Holz verfaulte vor Urzeiten unter Sauerstoffabschluss nicht, sondern wurde durch verschiedene Mineralien ersetzt, so dass das " Holz" nunmehr in verschiedensten Farben erscheint.
    Am Schluss der NP- Durchfahrt wurde jeder Wagen vor einer Schranke - vermutlich mittels Waage - auf unerlaubte Mitnahme von versteinertem Holz überprüft. Wir hatten ja nichts zu befürchten.

    Unterwegs sind wir an dem originellenTipi-Motel bei Holbrook vorbeigefahren.

    Da wir uns jetzt auf Navajo-Gebiet befinden, fordern die Indianer vielerorts ihren Tribut in Form von allerlei Taxen und Zuschlägen. Die frühere Jagd nach Skalps der Bleichgesichter ist der Jagd nach Cash gewichen, sicher eine zivilisatorische Errungenschaft 😉 (CJ).

    Day 38 - 2nd Time Had Better Be Lucky

    May 29, 2019 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 13 °C

    Predictably had a dreadful night sleep. Last thing I did before going to bed was visit the website for The Boneyard in Tucson. To my horror, the website declared that applications to visit had to be made at least 2 weeks in advance. Oh hell, I had planned to be in Tucson in less than 5 days time & we had to visit The Boneyard as it was Jackie’s perceived highlight of the whole trip.

    Needless to say my mind was whirring, I couldn’t sleep & I commenced replanning the next fortnight of our trip. It was between 2 & 3am when I finally got to sleep, but at least I had a new plan. Luckily I had a lie in until 6.30am when Jackie’s phone started ringing.

    Over breakfast I booked The Boneyard Tour for Friday 14th June & sent our request to be allowed on it. Let’s wait & see. After packing up, we were back on the road by 10am. We took Highway 98 south east for about 70 miles across open plains. At the end of the road we turned north on to Highway 160 for 34 miles & then at Kayenta, north again on Highway 163 for another 25 miles.

    Gone midday we arrived at Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park & then our clocks jumped forward an hour because the entrance is on the border back into Utah. We are getting very confused.

    This time we paid our $20 fee & were given a map & told that we could take our car on the 17 mile Valley Drive which was on dirt roads. Thank goodness, it would have been a long way to come to be told we couldn’t do the drive. Jackie wasn’t that fussed about returning anyway, so I dread to think how that conversation went if we didn’t get in.

    Relieved, we parked up at the Visitors Centre, took a few photos of the valley below, then had a look round the Visitors Centre & ended up coming out with a Route 66 T-shirt each! We returned to the car & commenced the Valley Drive.

    I now know why we weren’t allowed to take the RV on the drive. It was a nightmare in places, massive ruts & humps, as well as a road made up of either rock, sand, stones & gravel. It was a real challenge to avoid grounding the car or hitting big chunks of rock littered across the road. Luckily, I had Jackie to advise me of the best route & tell me when she thought I was going to hit something. To make matters worse large 4x4s & tour trucks were hammering along the road throwing up stones & dust despite the speed limit being just 15mph. We prayed we didn’t finish up with loads of damage to the hire car.

    There were 11 official stopping spots along the route. The 1st was for West & East Mitten Butte, which resembled a pair of hands complete with thumbs. The 2nd Elephant Butte took a lot of imagination, in fact it took us a while to work out which ‘Butte’ it was supposed to be!

    Next was Three Sisters, a Catholic Nun facing 2 pupils, then John Ford’s Point, named after the Hollywood Movie Director who made John Wayne famous. As we pulled into the car park, an old ‘duffer’ with a tripod was dithering in my chosen parking space. I got bored waiting for him, so prised the car in beside him. I could see he wasn’t happy. We went off to admire the view & snap a photo or two. We returned & the duffer was just leaving. I started to reverse back, which apparently caused duffer to beep his horn & gesticulate unnecessarily. I was oblivious, but it riled Jackie who mouthed at them to “F-off”, which in turn prompted Duffer’s wife to start shouting at us to “F-off”. This could be an interesting drive!

    There were several other Rock formations to see before we arrived at Totem Pole, a tall stick of rock that looks like it could fall over at any moment. It was there that we saw duffer & his wife again for the first time. He had his tripod out & was photographing plants. We walked past them but they looked the other way.

    The highlight for me was Artist’s Point, which gave a grandstand view of the most spectacular Buttes. Our final stop was at The Thumb, which at a certain angle actually looks like a cowboy boot, before we made the fraught drive back out of the Valley. We think we got out without causing any damage to the car, other than it & us were covered in red dust. Some idiots were driving round in convertibles with the top down & those on tours on open backed trucks were visibly choking from the dust.

    The Valley Drive took over 2 hours & was another unforgettable experience. I am so glad we made the effort to go back. I think I would have so regretted it if we hadn’t. It is truly one of the most iconic American natural wonders. Jackie also really enjoyed it & is glad we came!

    We then hit the road for the 176 mile trek south to Flagstaff, annoyingly passing the Grand Canyon which we plan to visit tomorrow. Arriving at our ‘America’s Best Value Inn’ motel in Flagstaff, just after 6pm Arizona time again. We booked in, then popped out for a cheeky Panda Express. We had one each this time, because we were starving, but won’t be doing that again. We both struggled to eat it, well Jackie did!!

    FITBIT knackered.
