    • Day 8

      Cuyahoga Valley National Park

      September 4, 2023 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

      Heute ist Labor Day, ein gesetzlicher Feiertag in den gesamten USA. Millionen von Amerikanern sind unterwegs und wollen ihren Hunden und Kindern etwas besonderes bieten. Dazu ist es heute extrem warm, fast unerträglich. Man steigt aus dem klimatisierten Wagen und es trifft einen der Schlag. In nur wenigen Sekunden ist man durchgeschwitzt.😁
      Trotz dieser Vorraussetzungen raffen wir uns auf und fahren zum Cuyahoga Valley National Park, der nur wenige Meilen von unserem Hotel entfernt liegt.
      Dieser Nationalpark ist für die 20 Meter hohen Brandywine Falls berühmt. Schöne Wasserfälle, zu dieser Jahreszeit aber nur mit sehr wenig Wasser versehen. Wir wandern bei tropischen Temperaturen den Brandywine Gorge Trail zum Wasserfall.
      Na ja, unsere Begeisterung hält sich in Grenzen, sowohl was diesen NP als auch den Wasserfall betrifft. Vielleicht aber ist unser Beurteilungsvermögen aufgrund der Hitze etwas getrübt.
      Jedenfalls sind wir fix und fertig, fahren zum Hotel zurück und werden die Nachmittagshitze klimatisiert verbringen. Morgen ist auch noch ein Tag👍🤔

    • Day 9

      Fahrt durch Ohio

      September 5, 2023 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

      Wir sind schon früh unterwegs. Der "Ira Trailhead' des Cuyahoga Valley National Park ist das Tor zum Beaver Marsh, einem ausgedehnten Feuchtgebiet, das zum Beobachten und Fotografieren von Wildtieren beliebt ist. Wir haben leider keinen Biber oder Otter gesehen. Die einzige Ausbeute waren mehrere Arten von Fischreihern.

      Wir fahren durch Ohio Richtung Süden. Es ist kaum zu glauben, wie aufgeräumt und sauber dieser Bundesstaat wirkt. Kein Papier und kein Plastik an den Straßenrändern, das Gras ist überall gemäht und es riecht gut. Das hatten wir so überhaupt nicht erwartet😉

      Und immer wieder diese Ähnlichkeit mit South Carolina. Hier im Norden gibt es allerdings kaum Schlangen und schon gar keine Alligatoren. Auch nicht im Mohican State Park. Hier finden wir die Mohican Covered Bridge, eine schöne Brücke und ein toller State Park.

      Wir wandern trotz der Hitze noch den Gorge Overlook Trail.

      Zum Abschluss des Tages machen wir einen kurzen Spaziergang am Indian Run Falls in "Dublin", wo wir auch übernachten.

      Morgen möchten wir in Columbus Arnold Schwarzenegger besuchen. Ob uns das gelingt??🤔😉

    • Day 10

      Cycling session

      July 9, 2023 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

      What started as a chill cycling session and potential train ride in a national park ended up being a very rough, intense cycling session and hope to make it before the rental store closes. We were pedaling so quickly that we ended up having 30min to spare and barely moving legs.Read more

    • Day 96

      O & E

      November 13, 2017 in the United States ⋅ 🌫 4 °C

      Ich verlasse mein viktorianisches Zimmer und fahre nach Akron. Bisher war Ohio tischeben, aber jetzt gibt es ein paar Hügel.
      Ich treffe auf den Ohio & Erie Canalway, dem ich morgen folgen werde.
      Ich beziehe ein schönes, geräumiges Ferienhaus mit Seeblick, das zum Preis eines Motelzimmers vermietet wird. Ich mache die Heizung an und fresse den Kühlschrank leer.Read more

    • Day 4


      September 2, 2017 in the United States ⋅ 🌫 15 °C

      Unsere 2. Übernachtung war in Woodstock/ Ontario - Canada. Der Ort hat nichts mit dem legendären Woodstockfestival in den 60er zu tun.
      Von dort fuhren wir heute zu den Niagara Falls.
      Es war sehr beeindruckend ☺
      Mit einem Boot kamen wir ganz nah an die Wasserfälle heran. Trotz Regenponcho wurden wir ordentlich nass.
      Nachdem wir einigermaßen trocken waren, fuhren wir über die Brücke wieder zurück in die USA.
      Unser nächstes Hotel ist in der Nähe von Cleveland/Ohio.

    • Day 90


      July 2, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

      Today was a lazy morning which is always nice. Danny and the kids came over to Joe and Carol's house and we drove to where the GoodYear blimp's hanger is, which is all right across from a state park with a playground.

      The kids played for a bit before we went back from lunch. After lunch we went to the local splash pad. It was so hot and was full of kids. It was a very busy day for the lifeguard as there was a kid who got his head smashed with a very deep cut, a little girl almost drowned at the little pond just near by and then lightning was seen so the splash pad had to shut.

      Since Joe and Carol babysit the grandkids twice a week, there were lots of toys and kids stuff around. Inara loved the cute little potty in the bathroom and even had her first pee in the toilet. Very exciting.

      The storm never came that close to us so after dinner we were able to drive down to Akron and we all went to see the Bee Gee' s tribute band at an outdoor area. The rib cook off was also going on just above the lawn/stage area so Joe bought some ribs to try and they melted off the bone into the mouth. We also tried to the local brewery, the Thirsty Dog, which was being sold there.

      The band itself wasn't the best but the night was perfect. The weather was no longer hot and humid and it was a perfect summer night. The kids had a blast running down the hill and playing. We had a great time with Joe, Carol, Danny and his kids for the last 2 days.

      Day 28 - Good vs Bad

      October 5, 2016 in the United States ⋅ 🌫 21 °C

      Another epic drive today. Two new states and another time zone. We are now on Eastern Time for a while, giving us a mini-break from messing about with the car's clock.

      We have hit the fourth week marker and we're getting into a rhythm whilst at service stations. We pull up, one of us prepays for petrol whilst the other wipes dead bugs from the windscreen, then it's time for a much needed restroom break. Country Music is definitely the music of choice in service stations. It is whilst in a service station that every fizzy, sugary, fatty and salty snack ever imagined is available. That's the bad.

      We started the day however with good intentions. With lunch approaching we were hoping to come across a chain that we recognised so we could go for something that we had seen before that was light. We then spied Applebee's and we headed straight there. Alice had slices of steak with spinach and grains and I had grilled chicken with rice, apple pieces and cranberries. They were both really tasty and we felt good about ourselves. We even just ordered water as it's taken a while to stop ordering fizzy drinks with every meal.

      Now the bad. At the half way point we pulled up at a service station to fill up, swap over and maybe get a coffee. Low and behold there in front of us was a Cinnabon stand. I had only previously heard about Cinnabon from a Louis CK sketch. It's a huge bun with handfuls of sugar, icing and cinnamon. It is served with a knife and fork and you still somehow end up with sticky fingers. Well, at least we washed it down with water!

      We got to our stop-off point for the night by about eight and we popped to a local eatery for dinner. We kept it simple, shrimp for me and shnitzel for Alice. Back at the motel they had an indoor pool and a hot tub that Alice and I decided to make the most of before they closed the facilities at eleven. The hot tub was ridiculously hot and the pool reassuringly cool and so we spent the time alternating between the two. With temperatures correct, we relaxed and made plans for the following day in Cleveland.

    • Day 88

      To Ohio

      June 30, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

      We had our last night of camping last night. It was a great little tent, 2 room Bushnell pop up tent, taking Elisa minutes to set up. It's been through wind, snow, rain and very hot days and we had no issues.

      After we packed up, we had about a 7 hour drive to Uniontown, Ohio. This was our last new State. (we are back in NY after this).

      We made it to Carol and joe's house where we had our own little guest area of the house and will be here for 3 nights. Joe and Carol are Elisa's godparents and have known her all her life.

      They also babysit their grandkids so there was tons of new toys for the kids to play with. That night Joe and Carol ordered pizza and we had a relaxing night catching up. The kids felt at ease right away with the awesome grandparents.
