We left on our roadtrip, the first day was to be a very long day as we tried to get as far as possible.
From Texas through new Mexico, to Arizona. We spend the night in a motel in Flagstaff.
Q told me that if you stick your arm out, and make a pullin motion when passing a truck, the trucker will hoot his horn….
So the first day I amused myself with asking every second truck we passed to sound his horn!
We went from the comparitively lush landscape of Texas, right through New Mexico, and into Arizona. Where the landscape turns more and more dry.
Except when you drive a Dutch person around, then the customary Dutch influence makes it rain….
We arrived in Flagstaff after dark, had dinner at a Sizzler, where you have a great vegetable buffet, and I had a very nice small steak with it. Q was all happy with a huge steak and felt a real man (Neanderthal)….
We slept in a real motel, a ”Super 8”. It was very neat and clean and not at all what you see in Hollywood movies. Q assured me that it is very rare for people to get killed/abducted/dissected in American motels nowadays.
