    Manifest Apropriation [IN, MO, NE]

    June 29 in the United States

    As we worked our way west from Virginia the predominant theme at the first few stops was westward expansion. The battlefield at Vincennes, IN celebrated a victory by George Rogers Clark and his Patriots over the British in 1779. The dramatic century-old murals at the monument, however, portrayed the victory as pivotal to securing a foothold for westward expansion.

    In St Louis we visited the newest National Park-- Gateway Arch NP. This park tries to balance celebrating how the west was won with the cost to Native Americans.

    The final stop in this triptych was Homestead National Monument of America. This site celebrated the rugged individualism of pioneers who staked their future on land grants of 160 acres.

    Ogallala Aquifer

    August 5, 2017 in the United States

    Grampy Carpenter sent us some homework so we are reporting back all that we learned.

    1) What is the Ogallala Aquifer and it's significance?
    - The biggest aquifer in the United States covering 8 Great Plains states and 174,000 square miles. It is part of the High Plains Aquifer.
    - It is where most of the western plains states get their water and is rapidly being depleted. Many parts of the aquifer have run dry in recent years, mostly in Kansas and Texas.
    - We read this article from National Geographic to learn about the impact of it's overuse. http://www.nationalgeographic.com/magazine/2016/08/vanishing-midwest-ogallala-aquifer-drought/

    2) What is the meaning behind the 100th Meridian?
    - This line of longitude signifies the approximate line where to the west there is dry land and to the east there is more wet land.
    - This also signifies where elevation changes in the US. To the West most of the elevation is above 2,000ft and to the east the elevation is below 2,000 feet. Of course, as with anything there are exceptions such as the Appalachian Mountains.

    Patrick's Playland

    August 5, 2017 in the United States

    Since the Pac 'n Play had to be retired (he looked like a human pretzel in it over March break), Gus created our very own bedrail for Patrick that doubles as a playpen type area. Perfect! It's 8:15am right now, but with the rain it's very dark. Pictures aren't great and the photographer is in the playpen, but you can get the general, albeit blurry, idea of the fun being had! Hot Wheels and Cars are exploring and going on adventures (under my legs!!!).Read more

    Der Missouri

    October 25, 2017 in the United States

    Hier gibt es tatsächlich eine Fußgänger- und Radbrücke über den Missouri. Der Fluß markiert die Grenze zwischen Nebraska und Iowa und gleichzeitig zwischen dem wilden Westen und dem zahmen Osten des Landes.

    Dan und Elly

    October 25, 2017 in the United States

    In Omaha habe ich eine Einladung von Dan und Elly. Wegen des Rückenwindes treffe ich so frühzeitig ein, daß beide noch auf der Arbeit sind.
    Dan gibt mir telefonisch den Code für die Tür, aber ich warte doch lieber draußen. Bald trifft er ein und wir plaudern angeregt über das Radfahren, seine Zeit als Austauschschüler in Deutschland und die amerikanischen Präsidenten der letzten 40 Jahre. Abends gibt's lecker Spaghetti und Rotwein mit der ganzen Familie.
    Ich genieße den Abend sehr, denn ich habe seit über zwei Wochen kein längeres Gespräch mehr mit irgendjemanden geführt.

    Nochmals: Cowboy Trail

    October 20, 2017 in the United States

    Einen Großteil der heutigen Strecke fahre ich nicht auf der Straße, sondern auf dem parallelen Cowboy Trail. Er ist hier in ganz gutem Zustand.
    Allerdings muß man aufpassen: Amerikanische Hochleistungsmaulwürfe machen ihre Hügel oft mitten auf dem Weg.
    Die Bäume leuchten golden im Oktober. Der Wind kommt heute mit über 30 km/h von rechts, aus dem Süden. Regelmäßig studiere ich die Karte, um festzustellen, ob ich demnächst abfallen kann oder anluven muß. Ich bin froh, daß dieser Wind nicht von vorn kommt, sonst würde ich rückwärts nach Vancouver rollen.
    Nachmittags rolle ich in O'Neill ein, einer irischen Stadt mitten in Amerika.

    Segeln

    October 21, 2017 in the United States

    Gleich morgens gehe ich vor die Tür, um die Windrichtung zu prüfen, und richtig, sie hat wieder auf Nordwest gedreht. Also ist heute wieder ein Erholungstag.
    Der Wind schiebt mich mit Stärke 5 weiter den Cowboy Trail entlang. Ich überlege, an meinem Fahrrad Handtücher oder Wäsche als Segel zu setzen, finde aber keine geeigneten Befestigungspunkte.
