    Von Kentucky nach Ohio

    April 17 in the United States

    Manchmal kann einem beim Reisen das Wetter halt doch einen grossen Strich durch die Rechnung machen. So war ich am Montag früh bereits um 08:00 am Flughafen in Washington, um vor dem Mittag noch nach Cincinnati (Ohio) zu fliegen und die zweite Hälfte des Montags noch für eine kleine Erkundungstour durch die ländliche Gegend im mittleren Westen Amerikas zu unternehmen, bevor dann am Dienstag und Mittwoch meine beruflichen Termine anstanden.

    Nachdem in Washington am Wochenende noch 28 Grad herrschten (es wird oft unterschätzt, dass Washington und auch Cincinnati recht südlich liegen, genau genommen auf dem gleichen Breitengrad wie Palma de Mallorca), schneite es in Ohio und der Flug verzögerte sich Stunde um Stunde. Schliesslich watete ich volle zehn Stunden am überfüllten Gate, um dann endlich um 18:30 Uhr Richtung Cincinnati abzufliegen, dort einen Mietwagen in Empfang zu nehmen und durch die dunkle Nacht, mit immer noch leichtem Schneefall in den etwa eine Stunde nördlich liegenden Zielort Mason zu fahren, vom Bundesstaaten Kentucky rüber nach Ohio. Nichts mehr mit Auskundschaften...

    So schnell wie der Winter gekommen war, war er auch wieder verschwunden und der Frühling, der die Kirschenblüten schon in ihrer vollen Pracht erschienen liess, war wieder zurück. Mein Gastgeber lud mich dann nach Arbeitsschluss auf eine kurze «Fahrt ins Blaue» ein, in der Abendsonne übers Land («nur schnell ins nächste Dorf»), wo ich mich auf dem Weg an den herrlichen Häusern des mittleren Westens, mit den grossen Rasenflächen ums Haus, den teilweise langen Alleeeinfahrt und typischen, gegen die Strasse ausgerichteten Veranden, wie man sie aus den amerikanischen Roadmovies kennt, immer wieder von der Strasse ablenken liess. Scheinbar liebten auch die amerikanischen Präsidenten diese Gegend, denn im «nächsten Dorf», das dann etwa 30 Minuten entfernt war, stoppten wir zum Nachtessen in einem Gasthaus, welches sich dafür rühmte, dass bereits 11 amerikanische Präsidenten hier diniert und logiert hatten, der letzte war Präsident Bush. Und damit wären wir wieder beim weissen Haus: Ohio und Kentucky verhalfen beide Präsident Trump zum Sprung nach Washington. Und Trump geniesst auch heute noch eine grosse Popularität: «Wir haben fast keine Arbeitslosigkeit, meine Aktien von meinen Ersparnissen sind letztes Jahr um 25% gestiegen und ich habe auch mehr Lohn bekommen – das haben wir Donald Trump zu verdanken», meinte einer der Mitarbeiter bei meinem Fabrikrundgang als ich ihn auf Mr. President ansprach. Ich verzichtete dann auf eine Diskussion… Ja, die Leute denken hier etwas anders, merkte ich auch beim Mittagessen, als sie mit einem unüberhörbaren Stolz erzählten, dass die Leute in Ohio in Amerika prozentual am meisten Waffen besässen («man muss sich ja verteidigen können») und hängten dann die Frage an, ob ich Lust hätte, mit ihnen nach dem Mittagessen noch ein bisschen im Wald schiessen zu gehen… Ich war dann froh, hatten wir noch nicht alle geschäftlichen Themen erledigt. Vielleicht bei meinem nächsten Besuch? Denn es lohnt sich, Ohio nicht einfach nur zu überfliegen...

    East Harbor State Park, OH

    August 26, 2016 in the United States

    After an overnight stop at Walmart, Avon we bought hiking poles at a new Cabelas outdoor store. Drove through small towns along the lake over a causeway to this lovely park which is in Lake Erie. Neighbours are RVs of all shapes & sizes plus tents. Found draft Guinness in a bottle ???

    Magee Marsh- Crane Creek

    August 30, 2016 in the United States

    Great birding area, herons, egrets, even saw a bald eagle flying as we were walking back to the coach. Long boardwalk through the forest & marsh was hot & humid. Parked on the edge of the marsh & were joined by a flock of canada geese grazing on grass next to us. Lkept amused by a groundhog crossing the road to eat & running back when a car came past, must have done it 10 times. Eaten alive overnight by mossies that came in through the screens.Read more

    Mercer County Fairgrounds - Celina, OH

    July 9, 2017 in the United States

    Last day at Monaco International rally, great brunch then we moved the coach to make sure we could get off the grass after Friday's thunderstorms, quite a few coaches have been stuck and needed a tow. We were fine and we dumped and moved to a gravel site where we filled up with fresh water as we're off to the FMCA convention in Indianapolis tomorrow in a caravan, around 30 coaches all heading off in convoy !!! The fairgrounds have a muscle car show with craft beer and BBQ this afternoon, which was fun to look round.Read more

    Middle Harbor Bike Ride

    August 28, 2016 in the United States

    Another bike ride to a beach where we paddled in the lake & walked out to the end of a breakwater. It's amazing how many boats are out on the water, moored just off the beach. Another hot one & another big thunderstorm happening right now (15:50) glad we're back indoors !!

    Mercer County Fairground - Celina OH

    July 1, 2017 in the United States

    Arrived at the fairground for the Monaco International rally which starts 5th July. Parked on grass which is a bit soft after heavy rains the last couple of days.
    Already met up with Dan & Mary Beth, Pete & Marci and Mike & Babs, who we met at the rally last year. We've been invited to join their group Monaco Travelers who have lots of interesting tours & meals planned for the next few days. So let the fun begin !!Read more

    Grand Lake - Celina, OH

    July 2, 2017 in the United States

    Entertaining dinner at Bella Italian Grill which is on the west side of Grand Lake. History lesson... the world's largest man made lake was finished in 1845, and dug out by hand by Irish and Germans who were paid 30 cents a day plus a jigger of whiskey.
    Outside the restaurant was a circular overspill and some guys were fishing from the bridge using a circular net with weights round the edges, extremely efficient way as one guy was pulling 6-10 good sized fish out each throw !! Yep, the water was green !!Read more

    St Mary's State Fish Hatchery, OH

    July 3, 2017 in the United States

    Monaco Travelers trip to the State Fish Hatchery in St Mary's. Really interesting film on how they collect the eggs by milking fish then fertilise them. Surprised at how much work goes into the process and most get released into state waters when they're around 1 1/2 inches long. They hatch walleye, yellow perch, catfish and saugeye, a hybrid walleye and sauger. In the holding tank below are blue catfish which they get as fry and release when they're around 6 inches.
    Great lunch afterwards at La Carreta, a Mexican restaurant in Celina, check the chairs.

    Its a good day

    August 20, 2017 in the United States

    Tractor pull was cool but we have to go leaving asap to cedar point but let's remember the tractors first. The Classes are super stock, mini, 2 wheel drive ute and more but the tractor I really liked was the alcoholic harvester. The tractors were super loud and people outside yahooing around Jared had to sleep with his ear muffs on and that was adorable. Waking up was amazing but after noon was horrible with clouds all over the sky's from the smoke of the tractors and the guys were nice but drinking way to much it's honestly concerning. That was cool memories flying over my head but time for more memories for the travel was long with 2 toll booths and Aaron hurting Jared's ears, I've had a long day already but shortly it will al turn around hopefully. Cedar point is the best amusement park because it's got lots of roller coasters and a water park right next to. This is really exiting for us and my favourite thing about this trip is this I'm just so excited. Barely containing myself wanting to go I have to wait for stupid traffic,screaming to myself on why I am not sticking my head out the window and yelling hurry up is what I feel like right now. With light house point in sight (our parking spot) bursting my bubble I WANT TO GO!!! 'Groan', see you after cedar point. We are back from point. Running out from the thunderstorm knowing the bolts in this place I'm running. But other than the storm it was a good night stay up till 10:30pm and go on 4 different rides the tiki twirl, chair'o'plane, matter horn and the sky ride. It's #fun:-P Well that's tonight good day... I mean night.Read more

    Old English Pub in Boardman

    December 7, 2016 in the United States

    Travel half way around the world for a Guinness in the Olde English Pub in Boardman, Ohio. Met some great locals and have already been invited to their family homes to celebrate Xmas day, such friendly people. There is just nothing like mingling with real locals rather than just meeting people in tourist areas. It's why we always travel away from the beaten track.
    Fantastic seeing Bec after 15 mths, however this week she has a big final week with her final assignments and projects.
    Today was a beautiful sunny day of -1C and predictions of snow showers overnight. Heading to the YSU Penguins qtr final home game on Saturday, but better rug up as predicted to be high of -7C and low of -16C.
    Now this is certainly gonna get some getting used to. Lol.
