Over the last couple of years the cars have become frequent subjects in my photos. After 4 years of loyal service, and fantastic adventures, the Audi S5 was traded in.
This posting highlights the Audi’s trips it took us on.
First trip was to Western Ohio – and a giant fiberglass bull.
Most of the time the birthplace of Presidents are honored locales, but not for Rutherford B Hayes – his is a BP station in Delaware, Ohio.
A covered bridge in Fairfield County, Ohio – The car was not allowed to cross it, but we were.
Utopia has been found (along the Ohio River).
The settling of America – on the right is a famed S bridge of the original National Road. Overhead is US Route 40 – the main route west from the 1910s through the 1960s. A 1/2 mile to the left (not shown) is Interstate 70.
A riverboat in Cincinnati.
867 feet above the Audi the New River Gorge Bridge. They offer tours where they connect you to the beams underneath and you cross – I passed.
Polo anyone. 3 horses in the field and 340 under the hood.
After Utopia, come Paradise – in the Northern Peninsula of Michigan. I find it ironic that somewhere that gets 200 inches of snow a year is considered Paradise…
The Audi is not on a runway – it is an abandoned air force base in Michigan – with some random Jets parked around town.
Welcome to Minnesota doncha ya know.
Big Horn Canyon National Recreation Area Montana/Wyoming.
Yellowstone. That is not the radiator overheating 🙂
One of the funniest moments in our travels was the day we ran into a cattle drive on a road in Idaho – this cow spent 5 minutes licking the bugs off the front of the Audi.
We drove 9 miles out a dirt road at the Golden Spike National Historic Site (where the transcontinental railroad met in the 1800s). Wondering who was dumb enough take an Audi out this dirt road, until a Tesla pulled up.
Devils Rocks Utah
Pagosa Springs, Colorado. The hotel was filled with a Corvette Club and us.
Bonjour from Paris – Texas
We went down to the Crossroads….Clarksdale, Mississippi.
We have seen Utopia and Paradise, and now the Center of the World
The original Model T factory in Detroit. They let my German car go along with all the classic American cars on the Woodward Dream Cruise all the way through the city to the burbs where the other 100,000 cool cars were cruising.
Plymouth, Massachusetts – National Monument to the Fore Fathers.
The Marine Atlantic Ferry to Newfoundland. A 600 car ferry and a 18 hour ride!
Gros Morne National Park, Newfoundland, Canada
The Audi and a large basket – but there are larger basket buildings in Ohio.
The historic Cincinnati Observatory and the Audi.
Watkins Glen Race Track. They were having club racing with little Mazdas, etc – if I had the safety equipment to go on the track I could’ve taken them – I think.
Age of Steam Roundhouse in Sugarcreek, Ohio.
The Auburn/Cord/Dusenberg Festival in Indiana. That car is sooo much cooler than mine.
The final road trip for the Audi – Downtown Chicago with the El in the background. While the Audi is gone – the adventures continue…..
