Suntrek Trip #2 - East Coast Adventure

Lafayette, CO - It's been about a week and a half since my last post, and in that time Suwei ran her third marathon here in Denver, we spent a weekend climbing with friends at Indian Creek in Utah, and I turned 41 (not necessarily in that order). I also managed to go through a few more photos.

This set comes from my second Suntrek tour, the East Coast Adventure. This time I was doing a standard Suntrek Tour. It was two weeks long and took us through the Northeast including Canada and New England. I had 13 passengers again, but this time they were from England, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Spain, Germany, and Austria (a much better mix). The trip also had a good mix of cities (Washington DC, Toronto, Montreal, Quebec City, Boston, New York) and parks (Algonquin Provincial Park, Acadia National Park, Cape Cod National Seashore), with a little rain, fog, and mosquitoes mixed in here and there. According to my logs we traveled 4171 miles (6712 km). Here is a map of our route:

And here are some of the photos:

Thanks go out to Sietske, Laura, Florian, Karine, Els, Elena, Inmaculada, Martin, Susanne, Nils, Kate, Katie and Kate for making this another great trip. Of course, I want to acknowledge the mad skills of our master DJ, the whore of the front seat, Florian, who gave us our trip song (click the link below).

Also, while we are on the subject of music, I wanted to add a few songs from the Swedish Tour. There were a few songs that kept popping up that just cracked me up. Turns out they were all from the same guy, Swedish pop sensation, Gunther. I would have included this in the last post, but I had forgotten the name and lost my notes. Thanks go out to Henrik, who was able to re-educate me. Without further ado, I present Gunther!!!!

What make this even better is the Album Cover....

Here is another classic from Pleasureman that got a lot of play in the Swedish van:

Thanks for posting the song by Gunther (and the album cover to boot). I just can't believe this hasn't this hit the American airwaves yet!

Gunther sounds a bit like Barry White meets Weird Al. Hilarious!
