Recently, and somewhat related to my hiatus from the forums, my wife and I moved from the Washington, DC area to San Francisco, CA. We decided to take a 14-day trip to visit my parents and a few National Parks. I took a bunch of photos of my trip, but of course, most of these posted pics are M3-content-heavy.
DC to Columbus, Ohio
Last few pictures of my car with DC backdrops!
Aways mindful of the NorCal car culture related to stance and fender gap:
There’s no need for a drop, my car is loaded with 400 lbs of stuff for the trip to Ohio and CA, check out the lack of wheel gap! (not all 400 lbs were in the car during the entire trip, a good 200 lbs of crap was dropped off in Ohio, or eaten)
In Columbus, Ohio, I went to a US Men’s National Team Soccer game. There was a members-only pep rally which I attended. (lots of German-heavy photos here, notice Jurgen)
Thurman Café – Columbus, Ohio
Ohio State Football goodies on display.
USMNT WC Qualifier vs Mexico. Dos-a-cero
I also went to the US Air Force Museum in Dayton, Ohio. Lots of German-heavy photos in here.
ME-410 (I believe, also sounds much like the S65B40)
JU-88 (or 188, I’m sure some aviation buff will correct me)
FW-190 (as marked, but look at the long nose fuselage, must be a different version than standard, kind of like M3 ZCP)
The obligatory car with plane photo.
Ohio to Kansas City, Mo
Noticed a lot of BMW Motorad bikes on the road. Must be a popular touring bike, everyone had one. Also check out my impressive bug collection in 1 day of driving.
KC to Colorado Springs, Co
A popular burger place in Salina, KS.
Back drop of Pike’s Peak. Weather was really poor in Colorado, I couldn’t drive up the peak while I was there. We spent time with my HS friend and his daughter.
Colorado to Moab, Utah – Arches National Park, Canyonland National Park
Canyon carving on I-70 in Glenwood Canyon, Colorado. Out of nowhere, a McLaren zooms by!
Milt’s Burgers in Moab, UT – seriously, go there, buy a burger.
Utah to Jackson Hole, Wyoming
Salt Lake City – Bruges Waffles and Frites (drool!)
A hidden gem! Bear Lake, Utah/Idaho
Grand Teton National Park, Jackson Hole, Wyoming
Jackson Hole Wyoming to Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming
