Some Days I Feel Kind Of Small

I Want What They Have!

Ok, you are on the English blue truck blog, for the coming days you will get some statistics of my trip on the Americas, which I started in fall 2010. 

Things like how many flat tires...

...who I met...

...what you liked the best on the blog and such.

And no, here you won't get a month by month review of what I have experienced during the last 34 months. Those are the German readers that are getting that. And now you are saying: 

HERE you have it, learn German and read my blog posts on in German!

Stats # 1: What YOU Like Best

Panama Canal

As promised, after 100'000 hits on my two blogs and approaching 200'000 clicks on my pictures, I thought it might be a good time to share some stats with you. 

Do you know which post on the english blue truck blog has been the most clicked one? It seems as you are equally fascinated by the Canal cutting through Panama as I am: "Panama Canal in Numbers" is by far leading in terms of clicks per post: 1'446 times some one has clicked on his mouse to read about this monumental construction.

ET is back!
Not even close to it but still your Number 2, another blog post from Panama. The reincarnation of ET who left us with the words "I'll be right back" and was never seen again until I spotted him in Panama. 592 clicks.

Just about four months on-line and already on position 3 and onyour favorite list: "Classic Cars on the Panamericana" with 344 clicks.

Classic Cars all over
It seems as cars cause a big interest on this blog. Another thing I share with you - you that are clicking on my posts. "Water Crossings" is visted continously again and has found 170 people being interested in it so far. 

More car stuff on position 5: "The blue truck meets the big truck" has reached 166 mouse clicks by this morning. 

Padre Island, Texas
More on the nature side is number 6: "Padre Island - South Texas" is scraching at one hundred clicks, exactly 99 times the mouse has been moved over that blog post with nothing but a couple of pictures of the beautiful place.

Now, this post is only about a month old and has made it into the top ten within hours since it was on-line: "Beautiful Girls and Tough Trucks". There are things you love more than cars! Or was it the trucks that caused you to click?

Position 8 is more something for the biker type: "Quick Replacement" with 77 clicks.

Surprise, surprise, but more a suprise that this post has not made it further up on the list of the top ten: "Topless Blondes" is only on Position 9.

But, you like it wet & wild: "Do You Know What A OH MY GOD Shower Is?" is on position 10 with 67 clicks.

Topless Blondes!

El Ultimo Hielero

It was icy cold when I was at Chimborazo in Ecuador a couple of months ago. Many weeks later I got a link to this fascitnating video from a fellow overland traveller. Check out this interesting, well made video documentary of the last ice merchant at Chimborazo.

You are spending so much time behind a screen, spend this 15 minutes and you won't regret it.

Unfortunately I have not met Baltazar, the last ice merchant at Chimborazo when I was there. I hope you will have that honor when you are at the mountain.

100'000 Thank You's!

Thank you!

Thank you for having been one of the over 100'000 clicks on either my english or german blog since I started blogging and travelling in fall 2010. Or one of over 180'000 visitors on the on-line Photo-Galleries. Thank you for hopping aboard the blue truck for a while and cruising along with me in the old Toyota. 

Cruising along in the blue truck

For the coming days you can join me on looking in the rear view mirror for a while on my german blog, come along and see where the blue truck brought us to during the past 34 months. Or come back soon to my english blog, right here to see some statistics in the up-coming posts. Which blog post is the most visited, which one the fastest climbing up the stats on popularity? How many flat tires? How many light bulbs replaced?
