Colorado, VW und die Deutsche Bahn

Hab wieder etwas neues gefunden und in unseren "Rundkurs" aufgenommen......

 Den FLAT TOPS TRAIL in Colorado. Dazu schreibt
"For 82 scenic miles, Colorado's Flat Tops Trail Scenic Byway winds its way through lush river valleys, skirts the bountiful Flat Tops Wilderness and climbs over two of Colorado’s least-traveled passes. At the end of the journey in Meeker, you're greeted by a town filled with pastoral charm and a gritty history. Make these pit stops along the way: 

• Begin your journey in the town of Yampa. The nearby Yampa River is the longest free-flowing, dam-free river in the state.

• Pull over on the 10,343-foot Ripple Creek Pass for a striking vantage point of the White River Valley and the forested Flat Tops Wilderness Area.

• Make a detour off the byway at Forest Road 205. Eight miles later, you’ll arrive at the wondrous Trappers Lake (siehe Foto), the birthplace of the wilderness movement. In 1919, a man named Arthur Carhart was surveying a site for a cabin resort development. Inspired by the lake’s placid beauty, Carhart decided to fight for the area’s preservation instead. His idea caught on, and the modern movement to preserve land as wilderness was born.

• Ultimately, you’ll arrive at the modest ranching town of Meeker. This town holds one of Colorado’s most unique events: the Meeker Classic Sheep Dog Championship Trials, usually held the first Wednesday through Sunday after Labor Day.

• Extend your tour beyond the byway to visit a famous battle site at Milk Creek, where an intense battle between the Utes and the U.S. Army marked the beginning of the end for the Utes’ residency on this land. Take Hwy. 13 northeast out of town and turn right on County Road 15, which leads almost 20 miles over Yellow Jacket Pass to the site.

Distance: 82 miles
Suggested time: 5 hours with side trips"


Hört sich doch prächtig an.


Volkswagen hat sich inzwischen gemeldet und geschrieben, dass es 652 VW-Händler in den USA gibt und dass es auf eine find-a-dealer-Prozedur gibt. Wieder ein Problem weniger. ;-)

Und auch eine günstige Kfz-Versicherung haben wir nun gefunden. Die Lions Group hat die für uns günstigstens Kondition. Außerdem wurden wir von Jens Haselhuhn (Cape Coral FL) sehr gut beraten - per E-Mail und auch telefonisch. Er spricht deutsch und hat uns die Besonderheiten des amerikanischen Versicherungssystems ausührlich erklärt. Hier fühlen wir uns gut aufgehoben....


Gestern haben wir dann auch schon die ICE-fahrt von Siegburg zum Flughafen FFM gebucht. Überraschend günstig, da wir so frühzeitig gebucht haben.  So kommt eins zum anderen.....

    I'm truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It's a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Exceptional work!
