Highway 1 Trip, Part 1 by Grace


My family and I went driving up Highway 1 in California in the Dormobile. We decded to do this because we were going to get a new/old car and

not just any old car, a RANGE ROVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Range Rover was in Redwood Valley, CA. So, we decided to make a vacation out of the trip.

Yeah this may seem crazy, to take a 1968 Dormobile 2,444 miles round trip. But the only thing bad that happened was a flat tire.

We set off from Tucson on Sunday, June 12th. That night we spent in a hotel in Laughlin, NV. The plan for Monday was to get to the coast, but we didn’t quite make it and spent the night in Bakersfield, CA. The third day was the real start of our vacation.

We drove out of Bakersfield towards the coast and visited Paso Robles. This is one of my parents favorite places to visit wineries. We visited a few. It was boring!!!
Finally, we got to the coast!!!!!!!!!!!! We camped at San Simeon State Park. The beach was just a little way from our campsite.We watched the tide come in, and the sunset.

The next we visited the Hearst Castle, but that is for the next post.

Overland Expo 2011

By: Izabella

TRIP  INFO

Date: March 31, 2011- April 3, 2011

Divas:  Izabella, Sydney,Sophia, Samantha, and Grace

Location:  Amado,  Arizona

http://www.overlandexpo.com/

In April The Rover Divas were presenters at the Overland Expo 2011, in Amado, Arizona.   After it was over I was so excited to write about it.  I did take notes and had a few very rough drafts.  But, it still has taken awhile to get my post completed.  The end of the school year was very busy for me.  Now it is summer and I am determined to catch up on posting!

 

 

The Divas and Roseann Hanson in front of Terry  Ann’s Green Rover (dormobile)

First Day (Thurs., March 31, 2011)

On the First Day there was a special meeting that all of the presenters had to attend.  It was very exciting, we finally got to meet Roseann Hanson, Director  of The Overland Expo.  We also saw the Land Rover Experience people, Ann Lockley,  Lois Pryce and the Camel Trophy guys.  While we were at the meeting everybody went on a tour of expo area.  On the tour we saw the tent we would be presenting in, and a special room just for the staff and media (that included us!).  Since we were kids and presenters, all five of us got  special kid drinks (sorry, it’s for kids only!).

 

Second Day (Friday, April 1, 2011)

Our first Rover Diva Presentation !!!!! (Cooking Demo)

The first day was a little scary but awesome, we made three peach and cherry dump cake or cobbler, a bunch of banana boats, and pigs in a blanket.  The cobblers and banana boats were cooked in a special Rover Diva charcoal fire pit that my dad made at work.  A laser cutter made the swirly Rover Diva Logo.  What made day two fun was having kids from the audience help us during our presentation.  My favorite recipe we made was the peach and cherry dump cake, it’s a funny name and its made the way it sounds!  You dump the pie fillings in, then the cake mix, and finish by pouring a sprite soda on top.  The banana boats,  and pigs in a blanket take a little more time to prepare.  We let the audience have samples of each recipe.  It was a yummy day!  After our presentation we went back to the campsite to hang out.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THIRD DAY  (Saturday, April 2, 2011)

 


On the third day we did our second presentation.  We had different stations set up, so people could see what our overlanding activities are.  Grace presented rock hounding, Sydney and Sofia showed kids how to make water compasses,  Samantha showed kids the telescope, and I explained differen’t types of backpacks.  I had three types of my packs, my rock climbing pack, Overnight backpack, and a daypack.

I had fun talking about these activities and the gear I use for them.   It was easier to talk on the second day then the first.  I liked showing people different outdoor gear, and letting them even try it on.  It was easier to speak directly to one person then a group like we had on day one.  Maybe someday I will be more comfortable speaking to big groups.  People asked most about my climbing gear, and then my big backpack. Sydneys daypack got attention from little girls.  I think they liked the Littlest Pet Shop toys inside better then the pink pack.

Saturday was the busiest day for us, but I think it was the most enjoyable day.  We had more people on this day.  Friday was a smaller group, most likely because people had to work, or had school to attend.   Overall, I think the busiest station was Sofia and Sydney’s.  Every time I looked over, they had people around them.  I know they had fun!

 

DAY FOUR (April 3, 2011)

Sunday was the last day of presentations, we were part of an “Expert Panel” on Overlanding with Kids.  All five Divas and The Adventure Parents were part of the panel.  We sat a a table in front of an audience, and we had microphones so people could hear us.  Jay Shapiro, owner of  the EcoRoamer, was the moderator.  He asked us questions, like “do we have any toys that you always travel with?  All the Diva’s said they bring their Pillow Pets, except me. I take Mocha monkey, he has traveled with me for almost eight years.   The funniest answer was when Sofia told the audience that she uses her dad’s Pillow Pet.  It’s a turtle named Sheldon.

Sunday became a busy day for us.  We saw Jonathan and Roseann Hanson again.  Jonathan had the Divas autograph the  the article in the “Overland Journal” that he wrote wrote about us.

Also on Sunday, I met my new hero, her name is Lois Pryce.  She is author of the books “Lois on the Loose” and “Red Tape and White Knuckles”.  I have  the second book, and Lois signed it for me.  It is about her dirt bike trip from London England to the tip of South Africa.   Samantha and I listened to her speak and saw her slide show.  She is very Brave.  She didn’t chicken out of anything, like many people would probably do.   She inspired me to buy a dirt bike of my own and go on adventures too someday.

That evening there was  a BBQ and a raffle.  The Rover Diva’s helped to sell the raffle tickets.   I buddied up with Sophia to sell tickets.  She is still little and needs help with the money math.   We did five jumping jacks for each ticket sold, it helped with business!  Sophia would ask people if they wanted to buy, and I would tell them the price.  The reason Sophia asked is because no one can resist her cute little face.  We also were allowed to draw the tickets while Lois Pryce helped, then announce the numbers.

 

Conclusion

Presenting at the Overland Expo was an amazing experience.  It took a while to plan for this, and make decisions on what to talk about.  We met to practice cooking and day three activities.   Roseann and Jonathan Hanson gave us an unique oppurtunity and adventure.  I am thankful to them for asking us to be part of the expo.

AZLRO Rally 2011 – My Saturday Adventure – by Grace

Trip Information:
Land Rovers: LR4 and 2 Dormobiles
Drivers: All women!!
Diva: Grace
Trail: Queen Creek

At the trail line-up we took this picture with Bill Burke. Bill Burke is an awesome off-road guy. He put us on his Facebook page. You can also check out his website. My Mom, Dad and the other Diva Dad’s took a three-day trail leader training course from Bill Burke in January.

I had to go on Queen Creek since my Mom was a trail leader. I was a little disappointed since the other divas were going on a different trail.


This the LR4 on our trail. It was its first time in low range, extended mode and off-road. Awesome!!! Get Dirty!!!

These are the wagon tracks. When I think of wagon tracks I think of little skinny wheel tracks that don’t even make an impression on the ground. These are different. They are from ore carts from a silver mine that was run between 1887 – 1909. You can even see where the hoofs of the horses were.

Next we went to the old townsite of Pinal. This was a can lid we found. There is lots of cool junk left, but the buildings are just mounds of dirt
Updated Trip Information:
Land Rovers: LR4, 2 Dormobiles, 4 Discos, 1 Range Rover, 1 G-Wagon with Land Rover Badges (it was funny!!)
Drivers: 3 women and some boys
Divas: Grace, Izabella, Sydney, Samantha and Sophia
Trail: Still Queen Creek

At lunch all of the trail leaders from the rally, who did not have a trail joined us for the rest of the day. In the end there were 7 trail leaders on my Mom’s trail. Who was the trail leader?? They were all fighting over it and kept passing each

After lunch we headed up to the rock shelters. Here are the LR4’s boys exploring one of the rock shelters. These rock shelters are between 800-1000 years old. We found pottery that dates back to that time.

There are also Pictographs and Petroglyphs at one of the rock shelters.

 


We went in with 3 Land Rovers and came out with 7 Land Rovers and 1 German Thing!!

It turned out to be a very fun day!!!

Easter at Turkey Creek by Grace

On Friday, of Easter weekend, I went camping. We went in the Dormobile to Turkey Creek.
We set up camp and stamped eggs.
For dinner we made cheese wrapped in ham, wrapped in chicken, wrapped in bacon. We cooked them in the Dutch Oven. Yum!!
Saturday I hiked to a cliff dwelling. It was a Salado Indian site and was tiny.

 

 

 

We hiked back to camp and dyed Easter eggs.

 

 

I made an airplane and threw a ball against a cliff.
I started a fire with no matches. It was fun and the second time I had done this.
This is how I built it.
1. I shredded sycamore bark, then put it in the fire ring.
2. I then put old leaves on the bark.
3. Then twigs and sticks.
4. Got an ember left from an earlier fire. Then I blew on the ember.
5. And blew
6. And blew
7. And Fire!!!
8. Then I put on leaves and twigs. You have to be careful not to let it go out.

 

9. Add sticks and branches. Keep careful watch!
10. Before you know it you are adding tree branches, and your fire is a real campfire.
We had our Easter dinner on Saturday night. My parents had Rack of Lamb. I don’t really like that so I got peanut butter and jelly. Much better!!
I set out two baskets one with eggs for the Easter Bunny to fill and one with just grass.
On Easter I opened my baskets.

My Dad went and hid the eggs and I had an Easter egg

AZLRO Rally 2011 – The Super Duper Trail Story – by Dalene

March 6th, 2011 

Land Rovers: LR3, Discovery I, Discovery II, Jeep, Defender 90
Drivers: Shaun, Ryan, Rob, Chad, Bill Burke
Diva: Dalene
Trail: Ajax Mine

 

On Sunday morning we ate breakfast and packed our stuff.  My dad led a trail but the Rover Divas were not there.  It was sad that my Rover Diva friends weren’t with me. 

On the trail two guys walked to Rob’s truck and told us that their Buggy was stuck in a hole. Things did not look good for the Buggy. I was not scared because the guys have fixed and helped trucks before.

Rob had a good idea. We pulled them up with a rope on a winch.  There were four winches. Everyone helped us pull him out.
The buggy was in a mineshaft and we got him out. I was happy that it didn’t take a long time. I’m glad that the buggy started running.
After that we ate lunch. We drove on a hard trail called Ajax before we went home. The trail was fun and everyone had a good time. I brought home some rocks from the trail. I always bring rocks home from the trail for my collection. 


The Pima Air and Space Museum

TRIP INFORMATION 

By:Sydney
A Dealer event from Royal Land Rover in Tucson
THANK YOU!!!!!
Where:  Pima Air and Space Museum in Tucson, Arizona
Date:   December 12, 2010
Divas:  Sydney, Izabella, Grace, Samantha and Sophia
Land Rovers:  2003 Disco, 96′ Disco, a.k.a. SALLY, 68 Dormobile, a few LR3’s, LR4’s and a couple of  newer Range Rovers!

 

This  weekend  all  the Rover Divas went to Pima Air And space Museum.  This is my favorite museum in Tucson.  I love airplanes and Space.
We had a tour on a tram of all the old planes outside the museum.  We saw old bombers, a guppy, and some cool jets.  We also saw lots of different helicopters.
After lunch we had lunch with all the other Land Rover owners outside the Space center.
After lunch we went to a few hangars to look at more planes.    We played  in half  of an air  plane  controller !!!!!!!!!!!!! I pretended I was a pilot.  I was sad they took the simulator away.  I rode in that three times before.  It makes you feel like a pilot.

 

I thought they  were  all wonderful
I couldn’t decide on my favorite plane. There is one really small plane.  It is called the bee, it is painted like a bumble bee.  Its a perfect size plane for me.  The other planes are super big. Walking under them makes you feel really, really small.

 

This is a F-107A, and one of my favorite planes at the museum.  I really love the shiny red paint!

Four little Land Rovers in front of planes.

 

Three cars three planes!!!!!!!!!!!!

Five  little air planes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AZLRO Rally 2010: Trail pre-run Temporal Gulch near Patagonia, Arizona

 

By:  Izabella

Two Discoveries went on this trip to check out trail conditions before the rally.

Divas on this trip:  Samantha, Izabella, Sophia and Sydney

A quick  Diva lunch break

Samantha and I enjoying some cold fried chicken .
Sydney and Sophia had fun climbing In and out of

Samantha’s roof top tent.


After lunch Samantha and I decided to explore the area and play in the cold water.

 

We are on the road again!! (sort of anyway)

Samantha and Sophia’s Disco (Sally) avoiding a deep spot!!

 

Possible lunch site for the rally next week!

This is the small canyon

behind the lunch site.   It is a great place to play.

Here we also saw a pair of real working cowboys.
 

This is the entrance of the second mine we came to.  They mined copper here.   Copper is Arizona’s main mineral.


On the inside we
found Chrysocolla on the walls.  Chrysocolla looks alot like
turquoise.  We picked up a few pretty pieces.  It is found wherever
there is copper.

This is one
of the small,  but
very pretty waterfalls
we saw.  We had a lot of rain this year in Arizona.  Most canyons had waterfalls, this was one of them.  We also counted 25 water crossings this trip.

The End!!!



Grace's Fall Break – Trip to Chaco Canyon

Grace’s Fall Break – Trip to Chaco Canyon – Days 1 – 3

Part 1: Trip data

Destination: El Malpais National Conservation Area and Monument & El Morro National Monument
Traveled with: Mom and Dad
Traveled from: Tucson
Maps: Arizona and New Mexico Gazetteer, GPS, Maps my Dad printed from internet
During Fall Break I went to El Morro National Monument, El Malpais National Monument, Chaco Canyon National Historical Park, Canyon de Chelly National Monument, Aztec Ruins, and Hubble Trading Post. I also went to one place that wasn’t part of the National Park system, Four Corners Tribal Park Monument.
I became a Junior Ranger at all of the National Park places. That is SIX Junior Rangers badges.
The first park I got a Junior Ranger badge at was El Morro which means in Spanish a butte or rock. At El Morro, you take a trail called, Inscription Trail.
On the trail there is a pool. We saw cliff swallows nests which are made of mud.
There are tons of inscriptions and petroglyphs. Inscriptions are carvings in rocks that are done by the Spanish and English explorers. Petroglyphs are carvings done by Ancient Indians. Graffiti is modern day inscriptions and is illegal.
The first English inscription was inscribed by a man named Lt. JHSimpson who copied down all the inscriptions by hand. He was an amazing artist, because his drawings were as good as any photograph today. At the time the inscriptions where in Spanish. The funny thing is his inscription read:
Lt. JHSimpson, USA u RH.Kern Artist
visited and copied these insciptions,
September 18th 1849.
So, the first English inscription has a miss spelled word.
To bad he didn’t have a spell checker.
At El Morro it was interesting to see the inscriptions.

 

El Malpais is a lava flow. There are five layers of flow. The layers are McCartys Crater, Bandera Crater, Cerro Hoya, El Calderon, Twin Craters.
We drove through “The Narrows.” It is where the lava just stops right next to the cliffs. There is only enough room for a two lane road, between the flow and cliffs.

 

 

We stopped at La Ventana Arch.
It was really cool. They made a big deal out of the me becoming a Junior Ranger.
Both rangers came outside and one swore me in. It was AWESOME!!!
Days 3 – 6

 

Chaco Culture was the main stop on our trip.

On the first day we went to Una Vida. It is one of the first great houses built in Chaco Canyon. Now it looks small, but in the 900’s it was very big!!

 

On the second day, I hiked 8 miles to see the Supernova pictograph.
On the way there was a Petroglyph side trail. We took it and here are some of the Petroglyphs.

 

The square is a Kachina. I think this is really cool!!

 

 

Under the Supernova Pictograph there was a petroglyph of Halley’s comet. The hike was long, and my mom got lots of blisters on her feet to prove it.

 

On the bluff above there were ruins called Penasco Blanco.
On the third day, we went to Hungo Pavi, Chetro Ketl, Pueblo Bonito, Pueblo de Arroyo, and Casa Rinconada.
Pueblo Bonito
Pueblo Bonito is the town square. It is Huge!!! It was first to be built and the last to be completed. On January 22, 1941 a rock face fell on an 8th of Pueblo Bonito. Here are some pictures of Pueblo Bonito!

 

 

This is a drawing of the different stages of building at Pueblo Bonito.

 

 

The famous curving doors of Pueblo Bonito. Awesome!!
This is the original wood ceiling beams in this one room of Pueblo Bonito. The room has original plaster, but the park service plastered over it, because people were vandalizing it. There was a lot of that kind of stuff here. It made me sad.
This is a rare corner door.
Chetro Ketl

 

Here is the “Great Wall” at Chetro Ketl. Which is another great house about 1/2 mile from Pueblo Bonito.

 

These are original mosaics that are blocked off, but a nice park service ranger came by and opened the door to the room, so we could get a better look. He told us there were several other examples in the park, but they have closed them off to visitors for safe keeping.
Casa Rinconada
My favorite of all the ruins!!!

 

Casa Rinconada is a Great Kiva. On the summer solstice a light shines on a niche on the wall. A Great Kiva is a ceremony room sort of like a church.

 

Pueblo de Arroyo

 

This a “tri-wall” or triple walled kiva. They are rare and only a dozen have been found in the four corners area. This is the only one at Chaco.
These mealing bins have metate’s in them. The women would sit down with feet against the wall and knees against the mealing bin and grind corn.
Chacoan Stairway
Chacoan stairways were carved into rocks. They have found many stairways around Chaco Canyon.
Chaco was Awesome!!!
Days 7 – 9

On Friday morning we

packed up and left Chaco Canyon.

 

Here are Felicty and Gracie dressed for a Land Rover Safari Adventure.

 

We headed toward Farmingtion, NM, when my parents realized that Aztec ruins was just another 10 miles up the road.

This is kind of weird. The band of blackish/greenish rocks. I have never seen this before. It is especially interesting because they plastered over it. So, why did they do it?

The people of Aztec had two Great Kivas. One of the Great Kivas was reconstructed and we were able to go into the kiva. It might have been what kivas looked like a 1000 years ago. There are three types of Kivas. Great Kivas, Keyhole Kivas, and Housed Kivas. Great Kivas are really big.

This is an original ladder from Aztec ruins. I always thought of the Sante Fe ladder, but these were very common in both Aztec and Chaco. In Chaco there were no ladders left, because they were scavenged for firewood. Another thing that makes me sad.

After visiting Aztec Ruins we went to Four Corners Monument. Four Corners is where Arizona, Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico all meet in one place.

It was really fun. You can say “I’m in AZ, no wait, NM, no wait, CO, no wait, UT, no wait, I am in them all.

After Four Corners we headed to Canyon de Chelly. We got there after dark and camped at the campground.

 

 

We drove the south rim of Canyon de Chelly the next morning and I heard all about the time my parent’s got to camp at the base of Spider Rock. Maybe someday I will get to do that.

Our next and last stop was Hubble Trading Post.

We were lucky enough to get to go inside the Hubble House. Here I am in the entrance way.

This is bread oven. I think they said they baked 250 loaves of bread a week in this oven.

Cool Barn!! Sometimes they had up to 10,000 sheep here! I bet that was stinky!!

Here I am with my 6 Junior Ranger Badges and patches.

The last night we spent at our friend’s cabin in Show Low, AZ. We are so glad we could stay there in comfort and hot showers after 8 long days in the Dormobile. Thanks Tom and Jane.

I had an awesome time. On to our next adventure!!!
