15. RushYellowstone

Wednesday, August 5th, 2009

More video fun. We’re still catching up with last week when we went through Mount Rushmore and I pulled my trick (for the second time that day) of flirting with a Park Ranger just so that she’d talk to me on camera. Then it was along to – and up and over – the Beartooth […]

And yet more Stats : USA

Tuesday, August 4th, 2009

It’s been over a week since we last counted the numbers, so here we are again. Whilst I’m sure you already know you can click on the progress map (which you can click on anytime over there in the right-hand rail) of this blog at anytime to see where I’ve been day-to-day, it’s always good […]

Wallyworld : Not poplar

Monday, August 3rd, 2009

The ‘pointlessness’ of the whole trip became apparent to Nikki today when we took a leisurely 200 mile detour south of where we were by Yellowstone park, to the southern depths of Idaho – to visit a same named place on the tube map – only for me to reveal that we’re going to turn […]

Follow the Yellowstone Road

Sunday, August 2nd, 2009

A weekend where you run out of superlatives: Welcome to Yellowstone Park. The scenery is simply just so gobsmackingly stunning, after you’ve used “Amazing!“, “Fantastic!” and “Stunning!“, you wonder how you’re quite going to describe the beauty that you see to others. The park is big – big enough to contain small towns in it, […]

14. The Badlands of Wall Drug

Saturday, August 1st, 2009

Could this be the most scenic part of country? So far – yes. Into South Dakota we go and the Badlands. Oh, and Wall Drug “Wall what?” I hear you ask! Exactly, which is why there’s this nice video for you … • National Parks guide to the Badlands • Wall Drug official site, oh […]

I’m in a wide open space

Friday, July 31st, 2009

@geofftech more wideopenspace standinginthemiddleofanemptyroad photos please 🙂 @diamondgeezer no problem, it is after all your ‘fault’ that i’m here 🙂 So we’re on the outskirts of Yellowstone Park, and will be here all weekend. Montana is known as ‘The Great Sky State’, and I think it’s bloody obvious looking at those pictures why. The road […]

Enchantment

Thursday, July 30th, 2009

So you live in a tiny small farming town in North Dakota. You worry that like a lot of small towns in America, relying just on farming that business may fail as the world evolves and changes, what do you do? In Gary Greff’s case, the answer is “You sculpt bloody great metalwork objects and […]

And then there was one

Monday, July 27th, 2009

Welcome to Monowi, Nebraska. Population : 2 Except for one small problem. When Elsie’s husband Rudy died a few years back, nobody bother to update the sign … the irony being that if it’s anybody’s job … it’s hers. For Elsie is the one-woman town of Monowi. She draws up a yearly budget … which […]

Nowhere Land

Sunday, July 26th, 2009

I’ll keep it brief. (Just 500 words, instead of 1,000 like I’ve been doing lately). Welcome aboard Nikki who (in a style extremely reminiscent to Doctor Who) became UndUSA’s companion number four today, landing in the intense mess that was MSP airport. I only had to loop round four times, and get shouted at by […]

More Statistics : USA

Saturday, July 25th, 2009

It’s about time we counted the numbers up again. Whilst I’m sure you already know you can click on the progress map (which you can click on anytime over there in the right-hand rail) of this blog at anytime to see where I’ve been day-to-day, it’s always good for me (if no one else) to […]

Spamtastic

Saturday, July 25th, 2009

It was bright, it was colourful, it was fun, friendly and informative. In was – in short (sorry mum) everything that Graceland wasn’t. If I ever get a chance to speak to the people behind Graceland to say that I was a little underwhelmed at my Elvis experience and they might say to me “Well […]

13. The White City (Part 2)

Thursday, July 23rd, 2009

I swear that when I planned this, I did not go out of my way to choose towns that had railways running through them. Same name-as-tube-stops they might be, but I wasn’t trying to be that much of a geek and make it that there was a passing American railroad too. And yet strangely it […]
