Charlene hanging out in a closed down frozen-in-time burger place on Route 66 in Needles, California.

10, 517 miles. 12 states. 7 national parks. Thousands of pictures taken. Thousands of tunes DJed in the car. And a countless number of Subway sandwiches and burgers consumed. It is almost impossible to believe that our 87 days of road tripping through basically most of the western half of the USA is over. One day later and I already miss it like crazy. The freedom, the open road, the gorgeous landscapes. Every day a new horizon, exploring the unknown. We shall weave some magic. We shall return soon.

    But you passed the milestone….500 miles, 500 miles, 500 miles away from home! 🙂

      The Bobby Bare song right? I had to google that to find out where those lyrics where from – I’m old but not that old, the youtube video is even in black and white, yikes 😉

    I’ve been enjoying – and sometimes envying! – your travels. Your blog is an oasis among all the gear oriented photography blogs out there. If you and Charlene would like to see some pictures of mine, you are welcome to take a look here: http://www.hakanlindgren.se/X/fotosida/

    For me, photography is all about faces. These photographs were taken at the opening of a photography exhibition in Stockholm a week ago – I’m kind of shy, but among other photographers you can take pictures shamelessly. I’m not sure if these people want their images online, so the web page will be gone after a week or two.

      Hi Håkan, thanks so much for your comments. Glad to be an oasis among the gear blogs. There are some nices faces in your link. It took me years to learn to take half way decent portraits, to engage people etc. I used to very, very shy.

    I would be hard pressed to imagine a greater dichotomy than the wide open, often empty (and at this time of year, mostly cold) spaces of Wyoming and New Mexico and the wall to wall humanity of equatorial Singapore. Been fun to follow, looking forward to every new adventure.

      Yes you are absolutely right – it is a culture, heat and humidity shock to get here! Still jetlagged, Singapore-lagged I think I will call it, after 5 days here!
