Quiz: Moab Research

Quiz Friday! Here is Kira doing research at 1am. Long term traveling goes hand in hand with constant research. We’re heading towards Moab which is a famous hub for outdoor activities. It offers endless possibilities, but all of them come with conditions: you can take pets on this trail, but not that one, your should hike this trail during sunrise, and watch this stone during sunset, see that rock anytime, but only if you drink milk, and ride this trail, but only on Thursdays at 3, and only if the elephant weights less than one tonne… At the end, we managed to figure everything out and make the best possible plan, but it came with a price. Question: How much hair did we lose during our research for Moab?
A: Kira lost twice as much as Sven
B: Sven lost twice as much as Kira
C: 3,14 and they were curly
D: None, our hair is immune for this by now

Quiz: Why Colorado?

Quiz Friday! Here we are, entering Colorado! Our route through mainland USA is heading towards Utah. In order to get there, we had to go either via Arizona or via Colorado. As the photo hints, we have chosen Colorado. Question: Why did we choose to cycle through Colorado instead of Arizona?

Quiz: Desert Side Effects

Quiz Friday! Here are Sven and Tulku overlooking the desert. We’ve cycled through deserts and semi-deserts for the most part of this year, basically since entering Mexico and leaving the jungle region. Deserts are dry, deserts are hot and deserts have spectacular views. Also, no desert is alike!

Quiz: Spare Water

Quiz Friday! Here is Sven leaving town with 39 liters of water and drinks. This week we had a 160 kilometer long stretch through the desert without possibility to get new supplies for 3 days and 2 nights. It’s not unusual for us to carry food for more than 6 days, but carrying water for more than 2 days and 1 night is a challenge. We need water not only for drinking, but also for cooking and basic hygiene; but water is heavy and bulky supply, so it’s not easy to transport it.
Question: Were these 39 liters (10,4 gallons) of water and drinks enough for us to reach the next town?
A – Yes, and we had extra water and drinks left
B – Yes, but we reached the town without any drop left
C – No, we had enough drinks, but not enough water
D – No, we had to stop cars and ask for more water and drinks
Hint: Keep in mind that it’s >+35°C during daytime in the desert!

Quiz: Our Mindset

Quiz Friday! Here is Tulku in Texas. We crossed a border this week and it was a stressful two-hour ordeal. There are two border-crossing points in Eagle Pass: bridge I and bridge II. We entered bridge I, walked until it’s middle, remembered that we needed stamps for leaving Mexico, went back. Mexican officials told us that immigration is closed on bridge I, so we need to go to bridge II. We cycled 4 kilometers to bridge II, found Mexican immigration, got the stamps. Went on the bridge II, got to USA side, went to immigration only to find out that their printer is broken and they can’t print the needed permit for us and we should go to bridge I. So we cycled all the way back to bridge I, crossed it (again) and all went well. Despite the happy ending it was quite nerve-wrecking experience. Question: before border-crossing, what did we think will the hardest part be?
A – paperwork
B – not being able to use sarcasm
C – culture shock

Quiz: Bee Action

B Sven
C Kira
Hint: It was an accident…
