My 2008 New Mexico Roadtrip photos now online

It took some time to filter my photos from my January New Mexico Roadtrip. I had shot more than 1000 photos. After several iterative filtering runs I manged to reduce them to around 160. You can find them here: New Mexico Road Trip 2008

Back from my USA roadtrip

Still struggling with Jet-Lag after arriving yesterday morning back in Munich. I have been cruisng around Southwest USA, for 14 days, summarizing 3800 Miles (6080 km). Its nearly half of the distance I drive with my own car in one year. I had almost become one unit with my rental car a very nice Pontiac G6 GT (3.5l V6 200hp). Yesterday climbing back in my Audi A3 I had the impression entering a toy car. Funny when starting the engine of my Audi, I was confused about the additional clutch pedal. For 6000 km rental car drive my left foot had rested on the sidebar. Of course I put in the gear of my Audi without using the clutchtwice ;-), killing the engine.  This just made me again visualize what it means doing 6000km in 14 days. I was almost daily sitting 6 to 8 hours in the rental car. Just checked my credit card listing to summarize my refuelings: In 14 days I visited 11 times the gas station for an average gas up of 35 USD. This means nearly 400 bucks for gas. Fuel economy of the Pontiac G6 seems not to be his strength. I dind’t care: it always makes fun driving a V6 engine. I will try to summarize my road trip in later posts.


Gas Up #6 in Alamorgodo, NM.


Driving a V6 is really cool.


The most important most checked indicator: fuel range.


The Pontiac, G6 GT when driving up the muddy road to Great Canyon West.


The Pontiac G6 GT near Tucson, AZ in the Saguaro N.P.


… and at the Canyon de Chelly Spyder rock overlook. I have had a little bit of all: snow, mud, dust and road.
