We spent almost another full day in Vegas checking out some more hotels and casinos, before heading to the small town of Beatty near Death Valley for the night. We have officially given up on camping, and are staying in motels along the way now. The following day, we continued our journey north, through Death […]

Harris Beach State Park, Oregon

Neither of us got much sleep last night as the wind came up and shook us and our tent all night long! Hmmmm … maybe there are some negative aspects to rooftop tents, such as – you’re a lot higher off the ground, therefore it gets more windy up there!! We headed off early travelling […]

Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

Saturday, January 17, 2004

We arrived in Las Vegas after dark, and we went straight to the strip to check out what was happening in town. After walking around for a couple of hours, we started searching for a cheap hotel. And we searched and searched and searched. Unfortunately, we had arrived in town on a weekend (Friday), and […]

Nehalem Bay, Oregon

We planned to travel through the USA and hit Mexico fairly quickly so as not to spend too much money in the states ($1 US goes a lot further in Central America than in the US). We travelled through Washington, picking up groceries along the way (we have set ourselves a goal of spending only […]

New Mexico & Arizona, USA

Thursday, January 15, 2004
Filed Under:
We drove through southwestern New Mexico and camped overnight in the Gila National Forest. It rained all night, and when we packed up the tent in the morning, the mattress inside got a bit wet. The Technitop tent folds up, which is great for conserving rooftop space, but it also means that if the sides […]

Oregon & Washington, USA

We arrived in Oregon late in the evening, and set off early the following morning. We travelled up through the eastern region of Oregon which took us past many large lakes, mountains and sparse forests. Most of the region was covered in snow and it was really beautiful. We travelled through central Washington state and […]

San Onofre State Beach, California

We headed off into California, through the Redwood Forest and the Napa Valley vineyard area watching large eagles circling overhead (oh where oh where is my bird book?). The sun has come out and it’s quite hot. Believe it or not, we’re having a hard time finding out about state parks in California – i.e. […]

Seattle, Washington

Filed Under:
We spent 2 nights with Rose and Pat Miller (Robin’s sister and brother-in-law) in Seattle and had a great time. Rose and Pat always make us feel very welcome in their home, and it was good to see their garden at a decent time of year (rather than the middle of winter when we visited […]

Texas, Estados Unidos (USA)

Tuesday, January 13, 2004

Well, we made it to Texas late in the afternoon and spent some time at a parts store trying to figure out whether our batteries were really fried, or whether there was a chance they could be salvaged. The charge test indicated that the batteries were fine, but we’re not convinced. We hummed and haahed […]
