Meow Wolf is amazing
If you ever have occasion to fly out of ABQ Sunport, the observation lounge is a nice way to kill a couple hours.
So, it looks like it’s turning out to be a Fyre Festival Cruise.
Trip is in effect!
Started this AM at New Glarus brewery. Currently in Duluth where the wind is fierce! Tomorrow night will be Thunder Bay, ON.
Here’s New Glarus
Noice! I have many work peeps who would like to make that southern Wisconsin pilgrimage, they would be quite jealous of this lovely pic!
The Museum Of Monster Mining Machines
Germany is famously home to some of the largest vehicles on the planet: the oversized Bagger excavators. But because these monsters usually live in active coal mines, you are usually unable to get anywhere near them. Which is why I’ve come to an abandoned mine instead…
We all know Dolly is a national treasure, but I hope the tourists who flock there aren’t bad.
Just FYI, because this video copy misunderstands this: Bagger is just the German word for excavator. It’s not a brand name or a word for strip mining equipment. The famous Bagger 288 is literally just “excavator number 288”.
This is a Bagger
but so is this
So the lower picture is a smaller bagger, and the upper picture is a bigger bagger.
ETA: also, thanks for the explanation!
It reminded me of an experience I had on the train to Montreal a few weeks back. Spotted a building by the nearby road with a big sign saying “souvenirs”. Sudden thought: hmm, that sounds like a French word :
Okay, I don’t really have a bucket list, but this one is gonna be the first thing on it.
ETA: Nearby, in Spain, there looks to be a wonderful small hotel – Hotel Barosse. The photos on Google Maps are gorgeous.
Anything worth seeing in Tucson? I have time to go see some Saguaro cactupodes today.
Not super-close but if you are ever in this area:
If you’re still there, you’d probably enjoy checking out Brad Lancaster’s neighborhood
We visited his urban permaculture site/home right in the city, not far from the university, and it was inspiring. Even if there are no tours, might be nice to walk around.
