OH DEER!!

If you have read the previous post, you will know that we have seen a LOT of wildlife on our way through Colorado and Utah – elk, mule deer and pronghorns. We love seeing deer and always stop to get pictures, but we like them best at a distance. In the Morning on September 19th …

The Rockies

After a shot of cowboy culture in Cody we rode south through the prairie. We went what felt like forever through this desolate and dry landscape and decided to head west for the Sinks Canyon mountains to find a place to camp. View over the prairie from Sinks Canyon State park mountains over the prairie. …

Hard hitting ladies in Montana

Billings Roller Derby Dames was hosting a bout against Electric City Roller Grrrls from Great Falls, Montana on Saturday August 27th. I convinced Lars that we had to stay 3 days on Billings and take part of this event. I had been in contact with Scary Keri (Keri Wilson) beforehand, and I had asked her, …

They’ve driving their old 81′ Volkswagen Beetle all the way up to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska and were now almost at the finish line of their trip. Super nice couple.

Get outta here!!!

Strolling down the streets of Dawson City, Yukon, Canada, we stumble across Mister Charley Boorman himself! We couldn’t believe our own eyes. Of course Henriette ran across the street and gave him a huge hug and Lars gave him the manly handshake – he probably had to hold himself back not to throw his arms …
