Death Valley aka Photodump

I wasn’t so sure what to think about Death Valley before heading there. You kinda get the feeling that every inch  had been photographed a million times, which gives you the false impression of already knowing that place before actually heading there. We decided not to take the trailer since the road going in from the west is na...

Sand

After Borrego Springs everybody headed to a boondocking spot close to Yuma, about 20 miles west. Everyone except us. We were stuck in a hotel with no car or home. So when everything was settled, all our stuff brought into the trailer, all the maintenance done, we headed back into the desert. Well, by now everyone but one family has le...

New Years

We started the new year on the wrong foot. Or, to be fair, it started going downhill on day 5. That’s when we left the party at Borrego Springs and the start of a long trip. But first things first. Christmas After an awesome week at the Joshua Tree Dry Lake Bed with friends we traveled to Joshua Tree South to hang out with...

New Mexico/Arizona/Nevada

We spend one week in Albuquerque, NM and it was a roller coaster ride. Not because of Albuquerque but because of us. We made plans. And changed those plans. Made new plans. Made promises to friends. Maybe to make us keep those plans? Changed the plans again. Similar to the time we spend in Colorado. Driving down to Albuquerque was our...

[New Mexico] Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks

The Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument is located about 60 miles north of Albuquerque. I heard about them when Technomedia went there a few weeks ago, but we didn’t expect much of it. Man, we were wrong. They were among the most stunning landmarks we’ve seen yet. You can choose between several hikes, an eas...

[New Mexico] Albuquerque

Driving to Albuqurque was not really planned. And I really didn’t want to leave Colorado. I’ve heard so many good things, this Eldorado has to be here somewhere! Well, I guess it is, just not where we were looking. And a looming snow storm prevented further exploring. And so we went south.   ...

Colorado

The first time we got a taste of the fascinating western nature. Snowcapped mountains on one side, neverending prairie on the other. And hip little towns like Boulder in the middle of it, basically the hipster town of the middle west. Or that’s what the interwebs say. It wasn’t that far off from what we could tell, being there for...

Texas/New Mexico/Colorado

  We couldn’t wait to leave the green part of Texas behind. It’s been enough trees for a lifetime. Basically, trip planning goes as follows: We choose a destination, we split the tour in several 2 to 3 hour trips, take work days into consideration to avoid unnecessary stress and then end up driving the whole tour in one, two...

Oklahoma

(Or Oklahooooumaaa, because it makes the little one laugh like it’s the funniest thing in the world) We left Texas for a short adventure in Oklahoma, visiting the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge. I wanted to say it was our first encounter with the wild America, that’s how much I got used to alligators and snakes and manatees....

Long term plans

We’re about 20 minutes south of Dallas right now and wondering if this summer will eventually end at some point. Yes, sunny is nice. Warm is nice. But we’ve had 11 months with only a few days colder than 85°F.  Or: I can’t remember what it’s like to be non-sweaty. For showers to be worth it. I’m probably weird but this nev...
