We Packed up our room, grabbed a bite for breakfast and headed to mass on the Strip or behind the Strip, Roman Catholic Shrine of the Most Holy Redeemer. That is a mouthful. We arrived early obviously because it is Easter and we are in tourist land and in Vegas. Three bad combinations for arriving to church late. Those who only go on holy days, those who go on vacation and those in Vegas who ... read more

Today we took I-40 from Sun Valley, AZ to Williams, AZ. Williams is a nice central location to Grand Canyon South Rim, Wupatki National Monument, Sedona, Montezuma Castle National Monument and Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument. This was a nice easy drive, we decided to stay at Canyon Motel & RV Park (they offer passport rates of $20/night, but we are close to the Holiday so had to pay Good Sam's rate of $41/night). The park is nice, quiet, has good Wi-Fi, an indoor pool that is freezing, and is in a great location. Best of all the city has what they call a dark ordinance where no bright lights are to be left on after 10 PM this allows everyone to enjoy the abundance of stars. The park also has cabins you can rent and ... read more

Left Las Vegas for a short drive to Williams, Arizona (40 miles before Flagstaff) for a three day stay that ended up being a week. Had truck problems again like the ones that were repaired in Las Vegas. Flagstaff Ford could not get me in until the following Wednesday so we spent lots of down days here. During this time we looked out of the trailer one evening and had 2 inches of snow. This was an interesting town as it was on Route 66 so had lots of business reflecting that including a Diner 66 which we had dinner at one night. We stayed at the Grand Canyon Railroad RV park which was a nice park, except for the train whistles in the early morning. The train goes from there up to the Grand Canyon ... read more

Get your Kicks on Route 66 Der erste Teil dieser Fotoserie zeigt Fotos von der Route 66. Die U.S. Route 66 führte von Chicago, Illinois nach Santa Monica, California. Heutzutage ist der Highway durch Interstates ersetzt und offiziell abgeschafft. An den Orten entlang der Route 66 werden natürlich jede Menge Souveniers verkauft.

Dwudniową podróż do Los Angeles słynną Route 66 rozpoczęliśmy solidnym amerykańskim śniadaniem w Williams. Omlet, pieczone ziemniaki i czarna kawa z dolewkami wystarczyły nam praktycznie na cały dzień J W tym czasie pokonaliśmy najciekawszy, 400-milowy, odcinek do Barstow. Prawdziwa Route 66 nie istnieje już od kilkudziesięciu lat. Część trasy została wchłonięta przez kilkupasmową autostradę międzystanową I-40, która w żadnym wypadku nie wzbudza żadnych wzniosłych uczuć. Sama Route 66 jest dokładnie taka, jaką sobie wyobrażaliśmy: długa jednopasmowa droga biegnąca przez tereny praktycznie pustynne, na których z rzadka udawało nam się minąć samochód z naprzeciwka. Przez większość trasy można kontemplować niezakłócony krajobraz. W wymierających miasteczkach można spotkać osoby kultywujące mit wspaniałej trasy poprzez prowadzenie tema... read more

Départ à 9h10 avec 29 078 miles au compteur. Partons tout d'abord voir le Meteor Crater, crée il y a environ 50 000 ans par une météorite qui a percuté la terre à 64 000 km/h, estime-t-on. De la nous partons à Flagstaff, charmante ville au milieu de la forêt de conifères de Coconoco. Nous en profitons pour manger dans un restaurant hawaïen. Très bon mais trop copieux comme dans beaucoup de restaurant (c'est fait pour des appétits américains). Nous prenons la direction de Sedona, une petite ville encaissée dans un canyon. Nous prenons un smoothie américain, c'est-à-dire fait avec des sirops de fruits et de la glace passée au blinder (pas un seul morceau de vrai fruit), mais c'est au moins rafraîchissant. Nous continuons en direction de Williams, pour trouver l'hôtel dans lequel nous avons ... read more

Geo: 35.4272, -112.318We were up early (I think we are still on Florida time) and ready to go at 7:40 this morning, and no one was more anxious to leave than Beamer. Being in the desert, the hotel didn't have as much as a small patch of grass. Last night when he went for a walk, he stepped on a burr and got it stuck in his foot, which didn't make him very happy. At that point he decided Santa Rosa should be in his rear view mirror, so in the morning he was happy to leave. When we pulled out of the hotel parking lot, the temperature was 50 degrees and the seat heater felt awfully good. It was overcast for several hours and since we were at 5,000 ft., visibility was limited and some ... read more

Rode from Kingman to Williams Arizona via route 66. Stopped for breakfast at one of the classic tourist route 66 joints. See photos. Uneventful journey over wide open plains. Passed a group of Eagle rider tours and felt pleased we hadn't gone down that road, a little too organised. Arrived early afternoon with the idea of getting a little more organised on the electronic front - no joy. Williams is too small a town with little to offer on that front. Topped up with a few provisions for our camping trip to the Grand Canyon tomorrow. We've booked for two nights there. Met up with a guy travelling from Vancouver, been on the road for 5 months. He had a load of leads, and he kindly copied all our photos and then emailed them to us ... read more
