North America Road Trip
Back in the Bay Area!
October 12, 2004

Between our off-road adventure and getting back to the Bay Area we have seen lots of beautiful, impressive and/or weird things. So indulge me in giving an overview in a few photo albums. On October 8th we made it to Livermore where we stayed a couple of nights with Lita and Patrick; we then crashed […]

North America Road Trip
Sterlin goes Off-Road, UT
October 3, 2004

Today we visited Canyonlands National Park. Instead of taking the paved roads, we decided to take one of the 4WD only roads. This enabled us to get away from the crowds and access great views of the Colorado River. The trip started out down a rather simple sand road. Although, the ranger had told us […]

Greetings from Llangollen!
September 14, 2004

I know it’s been a while, but internet access in these little hamlets I’ve been staying in has been non-existent. The one place that did have a library with a connection I hit on the weekend, so the library was closed. So no, the cows haven’t eaten my maps and compass yet! So this is […]

Bolivian Experience
The Training is Over
September 11, 2004

Just back from a week in the Cordillera Real mountain range. We completed High Altitude training and acclimization. So we are ready to tackle Mt Illimani. It is wonderful to get out of a tent and into a hotel room with a shower. Signing off from La Paz.

So here we are in Anchorage, AK, from where we fly to San Francisco today Aug 11. We just missed the place too much to be away for so long…. Just kidding (although…). No, we need to go back there to be fingerprinted again for our ‘still-and-forever-running’ green card applications. A bit a of a […]

Prudhoe Bay, AK
August 2, 2004

Just squeezing in a quick post before heading off to Denali National Park. The last week has been spent driving North, and I mean North. We crossed the Artic Circle (66Deg33′) and continued to a place called Deadhorse on Prudhoe Bay. Did not venture for a swim however. Deadhorse is a total Oil Town, with […]
