A Couple of Things in the Making

No, no!  No-one's pregnant. At least not based on my influence. Just a couple of things I am working on for you to hopefully enjoy the blue truck blog even more. 

First, I am working on several more photo galleries, the first ones have received a couple of pictures and will be  getting heavier as time passes: 

For Aviation Nuts: Having worked a big junk of my professional life in Aviation, I thought probably of those visiting my blogs frequently at least some are aviators as well and might enjoy some pictures of flying or once flying things. Just a few pictures there now, more, especially hundreds of retired aircraft standing in the Arizonan Desert will be coming. Visit the new Gallery HERE.

Some thing in the making: Some one though seems to be pregnant

Faces: I am often getting looked at, check out HERE by whom.

Food & Drinks: Some stuff that found its way into my stomach on the trip through the Americas. But also Bar's, Restaurants and pictures of the atmosphere and people around feasting with food and drinks. For Delikatessen, click HERE. Warning for Vegetarians: I am not one.

1000 Kilometers: This one is not yet on, but is in the making. Once I have left the house of my friends in New Jersey and set off on my trip I have taken pictures straight out of the windshield no matter how the view was, no matter where I was, every thousend kilometers, with a few exceptions, when I seem to have forgotten about it, unfortunately. Recheck soon to see the changing land scape from New Jersey to Florida, from Arizona to Alaska, from California to Mexico and into Central America.  

And than some more: Something which you might enjoy should you be on the road as well or plan to be soon. I am working on a separate page with nothing but practical information, such as border crossings, links of other travelers that do a much better job at posting their where abouts with coordinates and all that.

  1. Good morning how are you?
    My name is Emilio, I am a Spanish boy and I live in a town near to Madrid. I am a very interested person in knowing things so different as the culture, the way of life of the inhabitants of our planet, the fauna, the flora, and the landscapes of all the countries of the world etc. in summary, I am a person that enjoys traveling, learning and respecting people's diversity from all over the world.
    I would love to travel and meet in person all the aspects above mentioned, but unfortunately as this is very expensive and my purchasing power is quite small, so I devised a way to travel with the imagination in every corner of our planet. A few years ago I started a collection of used stamps because trough them, you can see pictures about fauna, flora, monuments, landscapes etc. from all the countries. As every day is more and more difficult to get stamps, some years ago I started a new collection in order to get traditional letters addressed to me in which my goal was to get at least 1 letter from each country in the world. This modest goal is feasible to reach in the most part of countries, but unfortunately it’s impossible to achieve in other various territories for several reasons, either because they are countries at war, either because they are countries with extreme poverty or because for whatever reason the postal system is not functioning properly.
    For all this I would ask you one small favour:
    Would you be so kind as to send me a letter by traditional mail from Nicaragua? I understand perfectly that you think that your blog is not the appropriate place to ask this, and even, is very probably that you ignore my letter, but I would call your attention to the difficulty involved in getting a letter from that country, and also I don’t know anyone neither where to write in Nicaragua in order to increase my collection. a letter for me is like a little souvenir, like if I have had visited that territory with my imagination and at same time, the arrival of the letters from a country is a sign of peace and normality and an original way to promote a country in the world. My postal address is the following one:
    Emilio Fernandez Esteban
    Avenida Juan de la Cierva, 44
    28902 Getafe (Madrid)
    If you wish, you can visit my blog www.cartasenmibuzon.blogspot.com where you can see the pictures of all the letters that I have received from whole World.
    Finally I would like to thank the attention given to this letter, and whether you can help me or not, I send my best wishes for peace, health and happiness for you, your family and all your dear beings.

    Yours Sincerely

    Emilio Fernandez
